Is there a new version of Windows 10 called “Ultra”?

Microsoft and its PC partners may be ready to take the wraps off a new Windows 10 Home edition that potentially would work on more powerful PCs than those which ship with regular Windows 10 Home.

Microsoft looks to be adding another new Windows 10 edition to its line-up. Dell mentioned a Windows 10 Home Ultra edition in its specs for the next XPS 13 2-in-1 device it announced at Computex on May 28.

Reimage Tips & Tricks: Keyboard shortcuts for Windows

In an effort to make life easier for the average Windows PC user, Microsoft has gone to great lengths to provide keyboard shortcuts. Whether you know them as keyboard shortcuts or hotkeys, they have been around for as long as I have used a PC (and I’m reserving the right to keep that information a secret), and in recent years, more and more apps and programs are providing users not only with keyboard shortcuts to speed up and simplify their workflow, but are enabling users to customize and create their own shortcuts.

Revenge of the Stuxnet: Microsoft isn’t ready to face off with Duqu

Yes folks, this time last week it was Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday, unfortunately this new patch won’t fully solve the latest of troublesome trojans, Duqu (not to be confused an evil Jedi master).

Duqu is a recent meddling malware that many suspect may have been created by the same person, or persons, who created Stuxnet, arguably the most important malware in history. However, where Stuxnet primarily targeted automation and PLC gear, Duqu acts as a recon drone for future attacks, collecting various information from infected systems. I dare say that I am not alone in assuming that a bigger threat might be out there, lying dormant, awaiting this information only to wreak havoc on PCs worldwide.
