Windows 10 Creators Update To Start Worldwide Rollout On April 11

A major update to Microsoft's Windows 10 system will start reaching consumers and businesses on April 11, offering 3-D drawing tools, game-broadcasting capabilities and better ways to manage your web browsing. In an exclusive preview, Microsoft today showed us the new features and enhancements that the next upgrade called Creators Update will come up with.

Microsoft announced the release date of the Windows 10 Creators Update today on its blog. Those interested in getting the update as soon as possible can download it directly from Microsoft's website once it is released.

However, it has been reported that Microsoft is delaying the release of the Surface Phone as, allegedly, the technology that will make the device a mobile laptop is not ready yet.

And as expected, this will be a free upgrade for every current Windows 10 user but will roll out in stages worldwide. Once users have enabled Game Mode, they can apply it to any game. Microsoft said the new features will cement Windows' position as a market-leading operating system capable of adapting to a wide range of use cases. These changes are supposed to help alleviate some of those complaints.

Another option is to download the ISOs directly from Microsoft, if you're comfortable installing a fresh version of Windows 10 on a blank or wiped hard drive.

It provided little detail but indicated the engine is to be used for North Korea's space and satellite-launching programme. Last fall, the United States and South Korean militaries detected at least two failed missile launches by North Korea.

A really fun and simple update lets you annotate photos and videos by simply writing on them using a stylus or finger.

The highlight of the Creators Update is its tab management features created to eliminate the clutter of the web and the fear of losing tabs.

All of a user's tabs will be stored in a list that's sorted by when they were set aside.

With the Game Bar, you can also easily record your session, capture screenshots, log into Xbox Live, or click on a settings button. Now, that sidebar has been replaced by a floating box.

Other big new features include the new Home design, which is designed for improved performance, and which puts content related to the games you're now playing front and center.

President Trump Hits the Golf Course For the 13th Time
Then on Sunday, Trump arrived at his golf club again, just after 11 a.m., for what was termed more weekend meetings. Well, now he's president and it seems he has more than enough time for golf-more than once a week, in fact.

"Screen time limits", meanwhile, will enable control-freak parents to limit the time their children can spend playing games across both their PC and Xbox console - a good reason for kids to ask for a Playstation or Nintendo for Christmas instead.

A class action lawsuit filed in IL last week alleges that Microsoft did not do enough to ensure that its Windows 10 operating system wouldn't cause problems for users who downloaded it. It's a competitor to Twitch (owned by Amazon) and YouTube (owned by Google). Also targeting gamers is the ability to use the Game Bar to start streaming to Beam without needing any additional log-ins.

Beam is also part of the update, the software allows players to broadcast their games right with built-in Windows 10 software. The Mixed Reality support that Microsoft introduced is created to drive a variety of augmented and virtual reality headsets.
