Back in the summer of 2015, Microsoft launched Windows 10 for desktop devices and stated that the smaller screen size for this operating system is 8 inches. Those who wanted to run Windows on smaller devices had to settle for Windows 10 Mobile, which only offered support for screen sizes below 8 inches. Now, the Redmond giant has decided to adjust these requirements, as well as a few others.

After the latest adjustments, the screen sizes allowed by Windows 10 desktop and Windows 10 Mobile overlap in the 8-inch area. Now, Windows 10 Mobile can run on devices with screen sizes up to 9 inches, but Windows 10 desktop can be loaded without problems on any device with a screen size of at least 7 inches.

Even more, Windows 10 desktop now requires at least 2 GB of memory. Back at launch, this operating system only required 1 GB RAM. Windows 10 Mobile, on the other hand, needs at least 1 GB RAM to run properly, according to Microsoft.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
