    They say there will be significant security improvements in Windows 10, such as two factor authentication:

    That article is from back in October. Does anyone know if those features actually got built into the OS?

    What I love about Win10? The only feature for me (besides DirectX 12) that I really 'love' is Print to PDF. As it stands other than that I like it just as much as Win7, nothing else really sets it apart.
    This is awesome. Although in Office 2013 we can already save as pdf out of the box. Or is printing to pdf different? I bet the advantage is you can now print from any program to pdf, not just from Office 2013...

    Yes - it appears in the list of 'Printers' and instead of getting a physical printout on a sheet of paper, it saves as a PDF. Very useful as a way of saving information on a website, for instance.

    Gotcha... Does that allow you to use Authenticator or similar, or is it only a password-replacement with fingerprints etc.?

    I think if you turn on two step authentication for the Microsoft account you sign into the OS with then it should be the same as signing in with a web browser; in other words it should ask for a verification, but I can't confirm as I don't currently have 10 installed. Perhaps someone else here can test it?

    When I tried this with Windows 8, I think it needs the authenticator once but then it 'remembers' for that computer, so for subsequent times it only asks for the password.

    I think I may have tried it with one of the earlier builds of Windows 10 and found the same - can't remember to be honest and I've wiped the machine a few times since then.

    I have the app, Authenticator, installed on my Windows Phone 8.1 and have had to use it several times with the various builds. Works very smoothly!

    I don't know how I forgot this but I use this keyboard shortcut about once a week and it bugs me when I use Windows 7 and forget it's not there.

    Having played with this a lot recently to try and create a tutorial, I do think the Recovery Options are a lot better in Windows 10 than Windows 7 or 8 - with the caveat that they don't seem 100% reliable yet, but I'm hopeful they will be soon.

    You can now create a USB Recovery Drive which will reinstall Windows, drivers and (with the aid of my tutorial ) installed software, onto a completely wiped hard disk.
