1. Cortana

Windows 10 includes something Microsoft has never offered in a desktop operating system – the virtual personal assistant Cortana. In Windows 10, Cortana is built-in search system. It pulls data from web-based sources and provides you with useful information on time. Cortana integrated mail and calendar, providing updated information about upcoming events, airline tickets, travel plans, etc., without you having to ask for this information. Moreover Cortana in Windows 10 can be completely controlled by voice.

In Windows 10 slide open window in a corner of the screen to attach it to a specific quarter of the display.
