Windows 10 doesn’t behave like the Windows of yesteryear. Instead of a monolithic operating system replaced by a successor in a year or two, it€™s more of a living, breathing entity€”one that€™s constantly changing with the release of massive new named updates. The most high-profile example was 2016â€™s Anniversary Update, which added features like the Bash Shell, a dark theme, Windows Ink, Xbox Play Anywhere, and a whole, whole lot more.Click here to know more about how to install windows creators update
Below are the new features in creators update
Microsoft is making changes to its notifications centre (Action Centre) in the Windows 10 Creators Update. Some of the quick actions have been refreshed, but the big change is sliders for both volume and screen brightness. Windows 10 users will welcome this change, as you’ll now finally be able to adjust these in smaller increments than the 25 percent levels that are currently offered as quick actions.
Themes for Windows 10 in the Store
Microsoft is going to start selling themes for Windows 10 in the Windows Store. As part of the custom accent color options, the software maker is adding a “personalization” section to the Windows Store, complete with collections of themes that are designed to change the appearance of Windows 10. Some of the collections include Minecraft and League of Legends themes, and it’s possible these custom themes could extend over to the dashboard for Xbox One consoles.
Custom accent colours
If you use a custom color for the Windows taskbar and other UI elements then you’re about to get a lot more options. While Windows 10 offers a number of custom accent colors right now, Microsoft is going to provide a picker with advanced options and the ability to preview what your crazy color might look like throughout Windows. It’s a nice change that will help people even further customize the look of Windows 10 to match a particular wallpaper or preference. Microsoft also appears to be adding video help manuals into the settings pages of Windows 10.
Full pen support for Microsoft word
Based on Microsoft’s video, it looks like the company is finally bringing full pen support to Word. Microsoft teased better pen support for Word during its Windows Ink introduction earlier this year, and it looks like it’s finally arriving with the Creators Update. You’ll be able to manipulate and delete text a lot more easily in apps like Word, and even leave comments on documents in just ink.
Microsoft Edge tab browsing
Microsoft appears to be making some changes to its Edge browser with the Creator Update. Edge has a tab browser option which lets you navigate current tabs by expanding the page-preview option. Microsoft also appears to be working on a session manager for Edge, allowing you to restore tabs from before you rebooted or closed Edge. This will include tabs that were open days or weeks ago.
Windows Defender update
Microsoft is also updating Windows Defender in the Creators Update. Windows Defender currently exists as a classic win32 desktop app in Windows 10, but Microsoft’s video appears to show a Defender app that looks a lot like a universal app. If Microsoft does move Defender to the universal platform then it’s one more step from preventing the jarring process of having to shift between these modern apps and the old desktop ones for basic settings in Windows 10.
Trackpad on Touchscreens
You can now send your tablet display to a second screen via a virtual touchpad. To activate it, you connect to a monitor, open Action Center and tap Project Quick Action. When you press and hold the taskbar you can then select Show Touchpad Button to bring up a black box on the bottom right corner. You can tweak the trackpad’s settings in Settings > Devices > Touchpad.
New Display Settings
Windows 10 will now know when sunrise and sunset happens. And it will use that knowledge to automatically adjust the amount of blue light emitted at night. Microsoft is also simplifying the options to let users switch resolution easier and improve DPI.
Unified Update Platform (UUP)
The UUP reduces the size of update downloads across tablets, smartphones, PCs, IoT devices and Hololens through the use of differential download technologies. That means a differential download package will contain the changes that have been made since the last time the Windows device was updated. Microsoft says the technology can shrink the download file size by up to 35 percent.
The UUP also changes how a device checks for updates, allowing the Windows Update service to decide which updates are actually necessary. That means pushing fewer updates on a system. Microsoft says this is particularly important for mobile devices.
“It’s important to note that with UUP, nothing will look or behave differently on the surface, UUP is all underlying platform and service optimization that happens behind the scenes,” said Bill Karagounis, director of program management for Microsoft’s Windows Insider Program and OS Fundamentals.
3D in PowerPoint and Paint
Creators Update brings 3D capabilities to Microsoft PowerPoint and the venerable Paint program. Microsoft launched a new online database/community for 3D elements called Remix3D. From here you can find and share 3D creations, which Microsoft calls mixed reality. It could help you add some serious flair to your next business plan pitch to the executives
Easier Team Collaboration
By pinning individual contacts to your taskbar, you can save yourself some clicks with the Creators Update. With one click you can decide to send text, email, or even share files with one person or your team. You can also relay messages from smartphones to desktops.
Windows Insiders accept some level of risk in trying out early builds of the operating system. So as the company ramps up to the official Creators Update rollout there will be minor fixes and tweaks. So the various improvements include changes to automatic brightness, log in failures, system crashes caused by ejecting SD cards. The company also rolled out a ton of improvements to Sticky Notes, including languages support and time recognition.
