Windows 10 Startup Screen
Why is windows using startup screen?
Windows use startup screen to prevent accidental login toward your system and prevent doing harmful actions while you are away from your computer.
When Windows 10 finishes booting process, you will see the main screen; it contains picture and some options:
1- Date and Time on the bottom left
2- Indication icons on the bottom right: Wi-Fi working or not, charging working or not (if using laptop)
3- Like what you see? On top right
If you like your main screen picture and need more, if you don’t, you can change it using this button.
These pictures are beautiful, and I change them every day.
By clicking on the image with a left mouse button or using the Enter key, you will be moved to the security login screen where you can enter your password
On the bottom right there are 3 buttons
1- Power button has three options for the PC to sleep, shutdown or restart.
2- Ease of Access button
It makes your computer easy to use
It contains multiple options:
Narrator: For people who face problem in reading screen content, Narrator option can read screen for you when you choose it. When you pass by any icon or text it start to read it and clarify its use.
Magnifier: Simply zoom in screen if you have problem in reading.
3- Internet Connectivity. It shows you network state, connected or disconnected
Once you type your password, you will be moved to the home screen.
Note: Take care when entering your password that you are not running “Caps Lock” key on keyboard, as it cause written characters to be in capital form, so entered password will be different and windows will refuse to enter.
On the next tutorial, we will talk about desktop screen, start menu, and how to deal with them.
