The next version of Windows 10 is finally ready to download as a free update that adds some potentially game-changing new features as well as some welcome features that bring it up to par with what you might expect from a smartphone.
Instead of adding tools for people creating media, as the previous two updates have, the latest version of Windows 10 is focused on time and task management.
“We want to give you back some of your greatest currency, your time. Our hope is that you’ll have more time to do what matters most to you – create, play, work or simply do what you love,” said Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Windows and Devices group.”
Now its debatable that its quite late on in the year for this update to come out, and you be right to debate it. The update was originally supposed to be released a couple of weeks ago but a bug that was found stalled the release date to now, so it just squeezed into the April release. The easiest way to actually get the update is to wait for the notification from windows itself but you can also manually find it if you just go to the app store.
Along with this update, Microsoft is still seeking to convince people to use edge over Chrome, Microsoft’s Edge browser gains the ability to strip out clutter when you print from a website, and the ability to mute audio from specific tabs. Some new Grammar Tools will also help break down complex words into syllables and highlight nouns, verbs, and adjectives. That adds to several another ebook, design and gesture support improvements.
