In fact, NetMarketShare has insisted Windows far surpasses macOS, Linux and Chrome OS in terms of monthly active users.
The Microsoft operating system was last overhauled in October and is expected to receive its next sizeable upgrade later this year.
Before the American tech giant releases new software to all users, it typically introduces early Windows 10 software to those that are part of its Insider Programme.
This usually offers a glimpse into forthcoming features that can be expected in the next substantial update for the operating system.
Microsoft has already begun rolling out new builds for Windows 10 version 19H1 that is expected to debut to all fans in April.
Some of the biggest changes that have been implemented in early versions are a revamped Start menu that offers a simplified interface, the introduction of Windows Sandbox and improved support for symbols.
Microsoft’s signature Start menu now sports a one-column design that should make navigation easier overall.
Discussing the change, the American tech giant stated: “Based on your feedback, we’re introducing a simplified default Start layout for new devices, new user accounts, and clean installs.
“The new layout has been simplified into a sleek one column design with reduced top-level tiles.”
Moreover, Windows Sandbox is a piece of software designed to run suspicious applications in an isolated environment.
Essentially, Sandbox creates a new desktop that is separate to the user’s primary one.
This means if fans open software with malware inside, it will not impact the user’s own computer.
Finally, another huge change in Windows 10 Insider builds is the ability to map symbols and kaomoji to a single hotkey.
Such a change means both will be more accessible overall.
However, it appears Microsoft is also testing another feature in its Insider programme that will allow fans to pause updates from the operating system for up to seven days, according to Thurrott.
The outlet stated the new function is being tested for the consumer version of Windows 10 Home and insisted it could arrive for all users in April.
The publication also posted a screenshot of the feature that allows users to customise the pause period for an update.
Windows 10 fans have long complained of being locked out of their computer whilst their hardware installs new firmware.
However, it appears the new change from the Redmond-based company is seeking to remedy such a frustration.
It is worth noting updates can already be paused on Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise.
