Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 10, is beginning to feel more and more like home for people that have installed it since it was released and made available as a free upgrade.

As with any new thing, it took some time before people were familiarized with what Windows 10 had to offer and how it was different from Windows 7 and 8. Now, we’re at a point where regular small updates drop for the OS and major updates are on their way periodically, while people are comfortable using Windows 10 as their daily driver.

There are, however, people that only now get to experience Windows 10 for the first time and for that user category, Microsoft has released a Getting Started feature which will give you a head start on the Windows 10 experience. The Getting Started feature is a page of popular and must have apps. Consider it a Windows 10 survival kit with all the essentials at your disposal right from the very beginning.

The list of apps includes titles you expect to find, covering various categories such as entertainment (Netflix) or cloud storage (Dropbox). It offers the possibility of further checking out what the Windows Store has to offer.

It’s a nice addition for those that want to get started with Windows 10, especially since it’s literally called “Getting Started”. That being said, we’re eager to find out what other features will be made available in the next build.
