Six Windows 10 Fall Creators Update features to know

Microsoft has always collected user data which the company has regularly suggested is used for fixing errors performance issues and to improve the apps and services it offers

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is here.

The Windows 10 update became available Tuesday. Using Subscription Activation, devices assigned to a user covered by a subscription-based license - including plans such as Windows 10 Enterprise E3 and E5, as well as Microsoft 365 E3 and E5 - are automatically "unlocked" with a log-in, with the operating system transforming from Windows 10 Pro to Windows 10 Enterprise.

TORONTO - Microsoft's forth iteration of Windows 10, launched today, will have a major upgrade featuring mixed reality tools. There are two ways to update-Microsoft's preferred way, and the impatient way. You can manually download and install Windows 10 Fall Creators Update on your compatible PCs. Called Paint 3D, the new app will be more of a photo editing app with new line and curve tools, and a 2D creation feature. "Windows 10 was designed as a service, whereby feature updates are required a couple times a year".

You may have noticed peer-to-peer (P2P) updating in Windows 10.

After tomorrow, devices on which those automatic updates have been disabled will still keep working.

Once you download and open up the Update Assistant, all you need to do is click on a few "Next" buttons to upgrade to Fall Creators Update (screenshot carries wrong build no; the latest build is 16299 or version 1709).

An IRCTC spokesperson said, "First, a group of seven passengers complained and were attended to by the on-board supervisor". The Konkan railway officials said that the hospitalised passengers are stable and recuperating at the hospital.

The easiest way to install Fall Creators Update is to just use Windows Update. Microsoft claims the end result is a Surface Book that is up to five times more powerful than the first generation models, with enough performance to pull off some gaming.

As always, there will be plenty of improvements under the hood, including the new Storage Sense that can better delete residual Windows installation files, as well as an improved Windows Security Center. Currently, the Fall Creators Update is being rolled out in phases, with some areas having it delivered via Windows Update before others.

Recent attacks on systems running older operating systems that hadn't been updated have also underscored the importance of keeping software up to date.

Terry Myerson, executive vice president of the Windows and Devices Group, speaks at the Microsoft Build 2017 developers conference, in Seattle in May.

"We have tried very hard to incent app devs", Belfiore said in one tweet yesterday.
