Having already released an enterprise-focused version of Windows 10, Microsoft is set to show off more consumer-focused features of the new operating system on Wednesday at a media briefing at its headquarters in Redmond, Washington.

The event is likely to give us a lot more details about how Windows 10 will work across desktop, laptops, tablet and mobile as well as potentially giving us a glimpse of how it will integrate with the company's Xbox platform.

We are likely to see some details about Windows 10 on smartphones, the new Spartan browser, and deep Cortana integration as well as the new Continuum feature in operation.
