Windows 10- New features in the 2nd Notifivation Center

Oostdam logo Windows 10Upgrading towards a newer release on a Windows 10 Technical Preview can be difficult sometimes. Still, as I think this is one of Microsoft's best operating systems ever made and it's still getting better and better as the releases are going better and better, following each other up in a continuous delivery way that I have never seen before from a large company like Microsoft is. This new OS is going to give Microsoft it's boost for the next decade as it will become the single platform form device all over the world, from phone, laptop. personal computer, towards large screens, game consoles and other devices. Mark my word for it!

It has been a little while, a little more than a month even, that Microsoft came out with the last preview update of Windows 10. The holiday season with Christmas time and New Year is the reason for that. And I love it! A major IT company, keeping the family-life of their employees in mind, when creating a deployment schedule for their biggest OS release ever made. Very nice! After watching all these CEO's last week, I had to upgrade towards the latest build version my self as well of course. I could not video-tape my laptop, or Surface 3 upgrade, but I did on my virtual Windows 10 machine. If you like, you can watch the upgrade video through this link. That's exactly the reason for creating these series of articles as well. I hope you enjoy it.

One of the new things I found in this latest release was an upgrade of the notification center.
First of all, the icon in the taskbar has been changed a little.
In earlier builds is was more white and intense. Now it looks calmer. 

Oostdam - Windows 10 - Actions from the new notification center

At the bottom of the notification center you are now also able to "quick access" a lot of pc settings. Before this change you always had to go there through the start-menu or the charm-bar. With the release of "Continuum" as a feature, these quick access buttons are an additional way to acces these most used settings when (automatically) changed to tablet/desktop mode.

Please note that your own display, external screens, VPN (direct access) and Wifi are default buttons.
Another great new feature in this new 9926 build of Windows 10.

Have fun!  Using Microsoft 10 !
