Starting with Windows 10 Anniversary Update, the operating system automatically downloads and installs apps and games. Without the user permission, Windows 10 installs suggested apps like Candy Crush Soda Saga, Minecraft: Windows 10 edition, Flipboard, Twitter, Netflix, Pandora, World of Tanks: Blitz etc.
In older Windows versions, the user had the ability to go fullscreen mode for the command prompt. Before Windows 10, Windows XP was the last version where this worked. In Windows Vista and above, Microsoft removed fullscreen mode for the command prompt. This has been changed in Windows 10.
