Windows 10 is the most popular personal computer operating system in the world. It is continuously growing and changing as new technologies, like fingerprint readers and voice recognition, emerge. Oasis Connections updates Windows 10 topic material several times a year as Microsoft issues updates that add features or other enhancements to Windows 10. Windows 10 is covered in detail in the Windows 10, A Guide to Getting the Most Out of Windows 10. Selected topics are also found in Introduction to Computers and Windows 10 Performance and Maintenance.
