Welcome to our Windows 10 tutorial series.

We will be spending time walking you through the ins and outs of Windows 10.

The current build we are working with is Windows 10 Build 9926 but as always, we will make updates as the builds evolve.

Today we will be talking a little about the new Windows 10 Taskbar located at the bottom of the screen.

Windows 10 Taskbar

If we take a closer look, we can see the following components:

First, we have the Windows icon – Click on that and you get the new [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

Next we have the preliminary Cortana box where you can type a query or use the microphone icon to indicate that you will be using your voice to ask Cortana something.

Next, we have the Task View icons that allow you to add multiple desktops.

The next icon on the bar is the Internet Explorer icon – this opens up Microsoft’s famous internet browser – Internet Explorer. This might be replaced by the Spartan browser in the future.

Next, there is an icon for File Explorer which allows you to get a view of your files.

Finally, there is an icon for the Windows Store. This opens up the store in a window that can be resized, maximized and closed back down.

That’s what’s on the Windows 10 Taskbar so far. We will look at a lot of those components in more detail later.
