Windows 10 Rolls Out Its Newest Update. What's New!
You may have noticed some recent changes to your Windows 10 edition. That's because in May 2019 Microsoft rolled out a really big upgrade for Windows 10. We've got all the details for you so you don't miss anything. New Light theme and desktop background. The updated look affects more interface elements. A slicker, updated default desktop background works well with both light and dark modes. You can now also choose Light, Dark, and Custom personalization modes. The last one lets you apply the theme to apps or Windows components separately. Cortana is separated from Search. Cortana is no longer integrated with the search box, so when you click the Cortana icon, the AI assistant starts listening without the need for a click on the microphone icon. Lots of included app updates. Notepad gets new features, as does Snip & Sketch. Sticky Notes gets new dark notes, the ability to attach images, and multiple-desktop support. With the May 2019 Update, you're now free to remove a lot more included apps, such as 3D Viewer, OneNote, Skype, and Voice Recorder. New updating options. Windows can now determine your active hours automatically so that backups are performed while you're not using the PC. You can also pause updates and delay feature updates for up to a year and quality updates for a month. Troubleshooting suggestions. The updated Troubleshoot page in Settings now includes a Recommended section to get your PC running smoother. Brightness slider in Action Center. Windows 10 screen brightness options have long been inadequate—Suggested, Darker, Brighter, Brightest, and so on. Now you get a simple, clear slider to lower and raise brightness gradually. Back-up and sync user folders to OneDrive. You can now choose to have your Desktop, Documents, and Photos user folders backed up and synced to OneDrive. Kaomojis (aka Japanese Emoji's) and Symbols.Windows Key-plus-Period Key brings up a panel of these character-based emojis, like :). It also now offers a panel of symbols, which you get to when you hit the ? icon. Sandbox Mode for Pro and Enterprise. This is a virtual copy of Windows running inside your actual Windows installation. You can use it to test installation of dubious programs. The previous Window 10 update, called the October 2018 update (or version 1809), added several more high profile features than the May 2019 Update. Here are the highlights: Your Phone: Work with photos and text messages from an Android phone in this new included app on your PC. Cloud Clipboard: The clipboard finally gets reusability, with both a history list for later use and roaming to other PCs you've signed into. Look for this feature to jump to smartphones in future updates. New Search Panel: You now see tiles offering Apps, Settings, Documents, Photos, and Web options for search, and the result page offers action like opening a file or folder location. New Screenshot Tool: Screenshot capability is improving on Windows, just as it recently did on macOS in Mojave. Dark Mode for File Explorer: Windows' dark mode is less consistent than Mojave's, but adding it to this frequently used utility is a big step in the right direction. Swipe "Text Entry" for On-Screen Keyboard: Microsoft is bringing its SwiftKey acquisition to Windows. The keyboard, which is already available as an add-in for Android and iOS, uses AI to learn your typing style and vocabulary. Edge Can Stop Autoplay: A new setting in the Edge browser prevents web videos and sound from playing automatically— often annoyingly. Chrome used to offer this option, but now the search and ad giant decides for you. The "no-autoplay" option joins Chrome's recently added tab silencer. Gaming Features: The updated Game Bar is now a full-fledged app. You now get audio controls, and the ability to suppress Windows updates during gaming. The OS now supports DirectX ray tracing, supported by new Nvidia graphics cards. Ease of Access: There are several improvements like letting you enlarge all text easily in Setting. There are also tweaks to Magnifier and Narrator. More Useful Sticky Notes: The old Sticky Notes were gone forever when you closed them. These new improved ones are not only saved in a history list, but sync between multiple PCs and accessible from a web browser. Security: Windows Defender Security Center is renamed simply "Windows Security." This offers a clear report on device, virus, browser, network, ransomware, and account protections. The ransomware protection lets you allow apps to access controlled folders. Information sourced from: PCMag.com
