Windows 10 Tutorials 19 – Windows Accessories

Welcome to our Windows 10 tutorial series.

We will be spending time walking you through the ins and outs of Windows 10.

Let’s see what tools Microsoft have included as accessories in their new operating system.

The Start Menu is back with a vengeance in Windows 10, and in many ways it behaves just like the old one in previous versions of the OS — albeit with a modern look and feel.

One such throwback is how a selection of tools are grouped together under Windows Accessories.

Accessories and system tools included in Windows 10

These are basically system tools, and quite a few of them.

And the best part is that both the available accessories and system tools are named intuitively. It should be easy to find what you are looking for just by glancing at this list.

The list includes Character Map, Math Input Panel, Notepad, Paint, Remote Desktop Connection, Sniping Tool, Sound Recorder, Steps Recorder, Sticky Notes, Windows Fax and Scan, Windows Journal, WordPad, XPS View and more.

A nice balance of old and new, classic and modern.

Many of these are desktop programs, as in traditional software, and quite unchanged from what was included in previous versions of the operating system, particularly Windows 7.

Out of these, Paint, Notepad and WordPad are probably the most familiar.

And most used.

Just click or tap the ones you want the tool you want to use, and go on from there. Almost are all straightforward and well worth exploring at least once so you have an idea of what’s available in your Windows toolbox.
