Could Windows Soon Be Even More Optimized for Your Intended Use?

Could Windows Soon Be Even More Optimized for Your Intended Use?

With so many users worldwide embracing Windows as their chosen operating system for all kinds of purposes, there are many different settings that can be customized to best fit the different needs of a workplace as compared to a gamer’s or a family’s setup. Microsoft understands this, and so is testing out a new feature to help a user quickly personalize a device to its predominant use.

While this idea is still in consideration and may not be ever adopted, it is still interesting to consider how businesses may someday be able to make use of such a feature.

What Could This Feature Look Like?

Coined “Device Usage,” the test of this feature is located in a revitalized Settings application under the “Personalization” area. There, a user can select between six categories:

  • Business
  • Creativity
  • Entertainment
  • Family
  • Gaming
  • Schoolwork

Naturally, business users would select Business, students would be well-served by Schoolwork, and so on. Based on their selection, the device’s settings would be changed to best fit the user’s needs. As of yet, this feature is still being tested in Windows’ Preview builds, so don’t go searching for it just yet.

While it is not yet totally clear precisely how these changes would take shape, some have theorized that this feature would just be an extension of the existing out-of-box experience (OOBE) setup screen—where users have to consent to different agreements and initially connect to the Internet and such.

With any luck, we’ll learn more about it soon.

In the meantime, BSGtech is here to assist you by managing your technology and ensuring that it functions as productively as possible for your team. Find out more about our services by calling (866) 546-1004 today.
