Microsoft rolling out a major update to the Windows Store app for the Windows 10 devices for insider in fast ring.

In love with Hands-free working?

It is a quite tedious process to set up a PC and to understand the several terms that come up on the screen when you are already trying hard to figure out the process.

"The Creators Update is created to spark and unleash creativity, bringing 3D and mixed reality to everyone and enabling every gamer to be a broadcaster", said Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President for the Windows and Devices Group, last week when announcing the availability of the Windows 10 Creators Update.

If your windows 10 machine has settings set to auto-download, your PC will be automatically upgraded to the new software.


If Microsoft does not offer ways to disable at least some of these features, let us hope that security companies find ways to block them; every single one is a vulnerability which could be exploited by people other than Microsoft.

That's a direct attack on Amazon's Alexa or Google Assistant voice assistant technologies, which are being programmed into more smart devices. "New innovations in the Windows 10 Creators Update include 3D in Windows 10, built-in game broadcasting, new tab management features and more in Microsoft Edge, and enhanced security features such as a new Microsoft privacy dashboard", said Microsoft in a blog post today. Be warned, you may feel a little bit dirty making use of Microsoft's generosity as you look to save a few quid. Cortana will guide you throughout the set-up process. IT departments want better tools so that, for example, they can see what feedback and issues are being reported by their test users. Such developments on the Windows 10 front could also ease out the release of the Microsoft Surface Phone, which is a highly-anticipated device for the Windows Phone fans. The whole new Mail and Calendar app shows fluid user interface that sports smooth motions and transitions throughout all of the UI components. You can also download e-books from the windows store. What do you think of the update?

Here's everything you need to know about the upgrade.

Cortana is Microsoft's response to Apple's (aapl) iPhone Siri voice assistant.
