Windows 10 Know IT Guyde

I spent some time three years ago making sure everyone had a simple guide for finding everything they would need for Windows 8 and you can find that here:  I thought it might be nice to make another one for Windows 10 and keep it up to date as well.  It’s a working document, growing and changing as time passes.  It can also be influenced by you.  Leave a comment here of your favorite Windows 10 resource, send me a link in twitter (, post it out to our Facebook group or send it to me in an email, and will get it updated!
