Have You Tried These 7 Windows 10 Improvements for Traders?

If you’re just now switching to Windows 10 (because of Windows 7 end-of-life), you might not yet have discovered some of its coolest features.

Most traders use over-the-head headsets for video and/or voice calls (via apps like zoom or skype). And often they end up using them for watching videos or listening to music while they work.
