Microsoft details new Windows 10 features

Windows 10 logoMicrosoft said from the very beginning that Windows 10 Technical Preview was a release specifically aimed at enterprises, so it shouldn't come as a big surprise that the company focused on features developed for this particular customer category.

In addition to a number of improvements that we have already talked about in the last couple of months, Windows 10 would also bring enhancements in terms of manageability which would really come in handy to enterprises.

Microsoft detailed these updates in a blog post today, explaining that Windows 10 can address “your organization's needs [which] continue to evolve in this increasingly mobile-first world.”

Obviously, all these features might not sound really appealing to consumers, but they're surely really important for enterprises where BYOD scenarios are becoming the core of everything, so turning to a platform that can address these needs is essential.

With Windows 10, Microsoft is finally making it possible for customers to log in to Windows with Azure Active Directory accounts if the devices they use are connected to this service. At the same time, these credentials can be used to gain access to business apps and resources, Microsoft says.

If Active Directory and Azure Active Directory are both used by a specific organization, users can automatically sign in to a number of cloud services with these credentials, thus removing the need for remembering additional IDs and passwords. Office 365, Windows Store, and Microsoft Intune are all supported.

Last but not least, Windows 10 will be used for better management of corporate devices, adding a number of new technologies, such as “support for configuration of Enterprise Data Protection policies, support for managing multiple users, full control over the Windows Store, VPN configuration, and full device wipe capabilities.”

Needless to say, Microsoft's increased focus on enterprises might worry consumers, but the company guarantees that everyone will be pleased with the way Windows 10 works and feels.

Needless to say, Microsoft's increased focus on enterprises might worry consumers, but the company guarantees that everyone will be pleased with the way Windows 10 works and feels.

Windows 10 will be an operating system aimed at all user categories, so it'll include options that would address both consumers and enterprises, while also offering support for a much wider device range, including very small devices and those with huge displays.

While the desktop will be significantly improved in Windows 10, the touch-optimized environment, also known as Metro, will also get its own share of enhancements for tablet users.

Overall, Microsoft tries to make Windows 10 an operating system for everyone, with improvements to be implemented for basically all user categories out there, while also trying to retain the familiar side of the traditional Windows operating system.
