Lenovo details Companion and Settings apps that will come with its Windows 10 PCs

Ahead of the launch of Windows 10, which is just a couple of days away, Lenovo has provided some details on a couple of the apps that will come preloaded on its PCs.

The two apps that Lenovo talks about are Lenovo Companion 3.0, and Lenovo Settings. Lenovo Companion is described as an optimization tool that will keep your Lenovo PC running in top shape. The app will periodically assess your machine and then give you a heads-up on actions you can take to free up space and keep things running smoothly.

Lenovo Settings, on the other hand, will provide users with easily-accessible options to manipulate how their PC behaves. From Lenovo:

"As a "smart" device control hub, the new Lenovo Settings lets users easily adapt and modify the way their device behaves. For example, when in tablet mode, the product will customize its display and other settings based on its orientation versus in traditional laptop mode. Alternatively, the device's usage will also alter its settings, for example when watching a movie versus reading an e-book."

Both apps will come preloaded on Lenovo's Windows 10 PCs, which the company says will start shipping on July 29 right alongside the operating system. Additionally, both apps are listed in the Windows 10 Store, which should make updating them relatively easy. If you'd like to check out the store listings yourself, you can hit up the links below to view the apps.
