Windows 10 update aims to help identify best photos, videos

Microsoft released a new test build of Windows 10 to PC testers in the Fast Ring on May 11.

The Fall Creators Update will bring a new feature called Timeline to Windows 10, allowing users to travel back in time to find what they were working on, whether it was 2 hours or 2 months ago. Apple has reason to avoid building bridges to Windows PCs: It wants to leverage the billion-plus iOS devices in the wild to push people toward using Macs. Such moves are crucial if Microsoft wants Windows 10 S to catch on.

Microsoft also provided a closer look at how Cortana will work in cars and speakers, such as the recently announced Invoke player from Harman Kardon. Microsoft announced something called OneDrive Files On-Demand. It will also work on OneDrive on iOS and Android handsets. The feature will require all of your devices to be logged in with your Microsoft account.

Another cool feature with the Microsoft OneDrive Offline Folders is that you now have this feature on Google Play Store.

There are 5 different fundamental elements of the Fluent Design System: Light, Depth, Motion, Material, and Scale.

The autumn update will bring Microsoft Graph. That means you can edit on the go while offline, and then when you get back online everything will sync up to reflect those changes.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update was announced at Build 2017, Microsoft's big developers' conference, and the update will include plenty for that market too. While the company can't give up on Windows Phone entirely just yet (though it's probably inevitable that it will), it now has a clear goal: figure out how to tie its core services into iOS and Android in ways that will make users want to use apps like Cortana.

Microsoft is also trying to make its Cortana virtual assistant more useful on non-Windows devices. As well as exposing their data to the Graph, apps can also customize their appearance of how their activities are presented, both on phones and on PCs.

Gartner analyst Jason Wong said the upcoming Windows update still reflected a view that desktop or laptop computers remained at the center of people's lives - which he said is not the case.

To prove that the emulation works, Kishan downloaded the venerable 7zip to run in Windows 10 on ARM.

"The single biggest change over the past couple of years is the broad realization across the company about what their platform is".

This preview build debuts another handy feature: individual volume control for universal Windows apps.

Apple has always been confident in its own ecosystem, which is why it probably isn't anxious about Microsoft rolling out these features.

Revealed previous year, the Fall update will see Microsoft introduce this business-focused feature, which is created to help protect firms against online threats by adding container-based isolation to Windows 10's Edge browser, preventing malicious online content from interacting with the rest of the system.

During the day two keynote, Microsoft revealed Apple's iTunes software and, by extension, the Apple Music streaming service will be arriving on the Windows Store later this year.

Microsoft is also adding a new creative app that will allow users to create custom stories through videos and images, combining transitions as well as soundtracks for some special montages.
