Windows 10 Anniversary Update is coming soon and it brings a number of changes to Windows 10. You can read all of our articles spanning two pages to learn what is changing in this release of Windows 10. While there are plenty of new features and minor changes, everyone has his or her favorite feature. What changes do you like about this update?
Microsoft has today announced that Windows 10 Anniversary Update will be arriving officially on August 2nd, 2016. This also means the expiration of the free upgrade offer. So, if you have still not switched to Windows 10, you have only a month to take this decision.
Microsoft has released Windows 10 build 14352 for PCs. This new build is out for Fast Ring insiders, featuring a number of changes to the operating system and its apps. Here is what's new, besides the usual list of fixes and known issues.
If you have used Windows 10, you might be already familiar with promoted apps. The operating system installs some "recommended" Universal apps like Candy Crush Soda Saga or Twitter. Microsoft is going to bring more such apps with the upcoming Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
A new Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14328 for both PC and Mobile was just released for Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. While this release does not bring much for Mobile, it is a major release for PCs. Windows 10 build 14328 for PC comes with lots of new features and improvements including Windows Ink, updated Start, and more.
A new build of Windows 10 Insider Preview is out. Participants of the Windows Insiders program can get Windows 10 build 14316 using the built in Windows Update service of the operating system. This build brings a big number of changes, including the Ubuntu Bash console demoed during the Build 2016.
As you may already know, Windows 10 Anniversary Update, formerly known as the Redstone 1 update, is expected to be released this summer. It has come to our knowledge that Microsoft is going to include a Dark Theme for apps and settings with this Update. The dark theme is already possible in Windows 10 so our guess is that they will simply provide a user interface to enable it so you won't need any Registry hacks or apps to enable it.
As smartphones and social media became popular, notification badges to show you new messages became a de facto standard. In Windows 7, Microsoft added overlays for the taskbar so apps could convey anything with a smaller icon over the application's icon.
That overlay could show for example, unread message count for IM and email apps, or play/paused status for media players and similar such notifications for websites pinned to the taskbar using IE. With Windows 10 Anniversary Update, the same will be possible for Universal Apps.
It is known that Microsoft is going to improve the Start menu available in Windows 10. Today, an animation/video of the new Start menu appeared, so we can get a better idea of how it will be in Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Let's discuss it.
During Build 2016, Microsoft announced the official name of the Redstone 1 update. The next major Windows 10 version, which should be released in July 2016 will be named "Anniversary Update". Microsoft has explained in detail several new features the user can expect in Windows 10 Anniversary edition.
