How To Fix Apps Not Responding Bug In Windows 10

Windows 10 is going to be Microsoft best OS version for years to come. This is arguably certain from the functionality perspective and changes which have been carefully made to meet public demand for the operating system overhaul. The changes include incorporating Cortana(as a vocal guide), change in the way Start Menu is accessed - which is different from the Windows 7 or Windows 8 in a way. There is a complete difference in the build version from the usual version 6 in previous ones to version 10. This may imply it is not going to be the usual OS restricted to particular PC hardware as before but to a cross-platform that cut across mobile through other hardware out there.
