And now it’s finally April 11th, or the day when Microsoft will start pushing out its next massive Windows 10 update to everyone.
Brand-new PCs that’ll ship with the Windows 10 Creators Update out of the box now include Cortana in the setup process, with the digital assistant guiding the user through the initial steps needed to get started.
According to The New York Times, to download the new version, users can utilize the Microsoft’s Windows 10 update assistant software.
As what the name suggests, the much-awaited Creators Update for Windows 10 centers around creative tasks like upgrading the classic Paint app into Paint 3D or upgrading the Microsoft Edge browser and adding some mixed-reality magic. Moreover, users who want to install the Creators Update on multiple machines should be able to install the update using the Media Creation Tool.
If you don’t intend to use this feature, you can also mute the instructions being given by Cortana and instead opt for the age-old manual method of installation. The update brings some new features to your PC, including some new changes for gamers. From there, the feature can be toggled for the game now running. That tool is available via the same page on Microsoft’s site.
Windows 10 users can get the Creators Update in a few different ways. In Paint 3D you can create 3D objects and scenes that can then be viewed in VR headsets. It’s done so that if there’s problems with the new version, you still have the data available to downgrade.
Windows Ink: It allows users to draw or write directly on maps, photos and videos using the built-in Maps and Photos apps. The privacy settings you select won’t go into effect until you’ve installed the Windows 10 Creators Update.
The Creator’s Update also comes with a ton of smaller tweaks and updates. Do you find Microsoft’s proprietary virtual assistant useful? Windows Defender gets an upgrade with the introduction of the Windows Defender Security Center.
The Night Light setting in Windows 10 can be scheduled to filter out blue light automatically in the evening.
