Windows 10 Creators Update Launch Confirmed For April 11th

Windows 10 Creators Update Launch Confirmed For April 11th

Finally, thanks to Microsoft's new Unified Update Platform, your PC will now only download the specific files that require updating on your PC, rather than fetching a huge archive that might not be needed.

Microsoft killed its generous free Windows 10 upgrade offer back on 29 July 2016, offering up a small window of opportunity for those who missed it in the form of the Windows 10 assistive technology upgrade.

Microsoft has also expanded a device's possible "active hours", so the updates don't try to install themselves when users are still working. They often require a restart and can come at inopportune times - such as the start of an important meeting. Microsoft isn't sharing just how many books will be available in the Windows Store at launch. These devices will light up with new, immersive Windows Mixed Reality apps and experiences, which developers are creating on the recently available Windows Mixed Reality dev kits. Microsoft says it could take as long as a couple of months before everyone sees it, and even then you'll have the opportunity to snooze it until you're ready.

All of a user's tabs will be stored in a list that's sorted by when they were set aside. Plus when you close and later re-open the book, Edge will turn straight to the page where you left off.

The Windows 10 Creators Update brings along with it lots of changes and improvements; that's probably one reason why Windows 10 users are interested in upgrading their machines to the latest version of the operating system. Microsoft is altering the Xbox's interface to make it simpler and faster to navigate through menus and find content to play. Now, that sidebar has been replaced by a floating box.

Support for other features is still in its fledgling stages, but extensions are making their way into the browser, which is good news for users potentially looking to lose Chrome or Firefox.

Fans continue to pay tribute to musical legend Chuck Berry
Presley may have had the swagger and sexuality to take rock "n" roll to the masses, but Berry was its architect. The Cadillac in Berry's "Nadine" is not just a Cadillac, but a "coffee colored" Cadillac.

The transition between Windows and Xbox gaming is smoother than ever and now even more has been done to improve that PC gaming experience. The Windows 10 Creators Update is on its way. "And the key features in this update will help light up creativity".

"With all the unsafe security threats online today, Microsoft Edge blocks 9% more phishing sites and 13% more malware than Chrome - helping protect your identity and information; speed matters on the Web and according to Google's own benchmarks, Microsoft Edge is faster than Chrome".

There's also new support for Beam, Microsoft's own live-streaming service. It also adds support for virtual reality and mixed reality headsets.

We're almost two years into the life cycle of Microsoft's latest operating system. The Windows Insider program lets you beta test advance versions of the OS for free, if you don't mind the occasional bug, and here's what you need to do to get enrolled.

For some, these major feature updates may be incredibly valuable; for others they may not make much difference.
