After upgrading to Windows 10, you need to download Facebook for Windows 10 to get the most out of your Facebook account.

Though some loved the look of Windows 8, the operating system had so many problems that Microsoft released a number of updates before recommending that users switch to the Windows 10 operating system instead. Windows 10 runs more smoothly that its predecessors and makes it easier for you to use your computer. Make Facebook look and run well with your new operating system with this new version of the social networking site.

Facebook for Windows 10 is a brand new version of the app that comes with all the features you expect and some brand new features, too. Using Facebook is a great way to stay connected with your loved ones. It lets you create an account, upload pictures you took and videos you shot, share status updates, like pages, follow friends and comment on the updates, pictures and videos of others. You can even follow official pages to learn more about upcoming films, get coupons for your favorite products and chat with celebrities.

With Facebook for Windows 10, you get a new and more modern interface that makes it easier to follow your friends and view the content you want to see. When you first log in, you'll see the most recent posts from your friends on your home feed. You can use the search box at the time to find your friends, look for new friends or to visit certain pages.

One of the best features of this new app is that you can keep it running in the background while you check out other sites or use other apps on your computer. It sends out notifications to alert you when friends post new content or when others respond to your content. You'll also see a list of features on the left side of the screen. Click on any of those buttons to check your messages, view your wall or look at upcoming events.

As with other versions of the app, this one also lets you chat with your friends. Your list will show you whether those friends are online or offline, which gives you an idea of how quickly they will respond. The app also lets you make changes to your account and increase your privacy settings, too, which limits who can see the content you post. Though Facebook for Windows 10 doesn't come with a lot of new features, it enhances your Facebook experience when using this operating system.
