This post was originally written on March 30, năm 2016, but has since been updated with features from the Insider PReview và final release.

Cortamãng cầu Becomes a Whole Lot Smarter


Arguably the biggest update is Cortana. Microsoft continues to exp& on what Cortamãng cầu can vày, clearly trying khổng lồ make it the most powerful assistant in an increasingly growing pool of competition (Siri, Google Now, Alexa, and the whole gang). This time around, Cortana comes to lớn the Windows 10 lock screen, so you can invoke her at any time. And, she can push stuff to và from your thiết bị di động device, including notifications & text messages. (And rethành viên, since Cortana is available on Android too, that doesn’t mean you need a Windows Phone to lớn take advantage.)

More interestingly, though, Cortamãng cầu can parse even more information about stuff it thinks you might need. For example, the on-stage test showed us that Cortana can respond khổng lồ things like “Skết thúc Chuông chồng the PowerPoint I worked on last night”, or “What toy store did I visit at Build last year?” That’s pretty crazy. Of course, if you’re more privacy-conscious, that’s crazy in all the wrong ways–but it’s a pretty tempting set of features.

Cortana can also make proactive sầu suggestions for you. If you receive sầu gmail confirmation of flight details, it’ll add them to your calendar. If you promised Chuchồng you’d send hyên that PowerPoint in an gmail, Cortamãng cầu will know, and remind you khổng lồ fulfill that commitment later on.

Furthermore, if you add an appointment khổng lồ your calendar, it’ll know if that appointment overlaps with another, và ask you if you want lớn re-schedule one of the overlapping events. Or, if you have sầu a meeting during lunch it’ll ask if you want to book a table, or make a to-go order, based on the apps you have available. In short, Cortamãng cầu is getting more proactive sầu, so you don’t have sầu khổng lồ be on top of your own stuff–and isn’t that what having an assistant is all about?

Windows 10 Interacts with Your Android Phone (or Windows Phone)


Cortana on Windows 10 will now integrate with the Cortana application on your Android or Windows smartphone. You’ll just need khổng lồ install the Cortamãng cầu Android app and sign in with the same Microsoft tài khoản on both devices. iPhone users are out of luchồng, as iOS is too locked down for Microsoft khổng lồ integrate with it as deeply. This just works between Windows 10 PCs and Windows sản phẩm điện thoại 10 phones running the lakiểm tra software. It now works between Android phones và Windows 10 PCs, too–just be sure you have the lathử nghiệm Cortamãng cầu tiện ích installed from Google Play.

Cortana can mirror all your Android phone’s notifications khổng lồ your PC, giving you all your notifications in Windows 10’s Action Center. You’ll also see a notification on your PC when your điện thoại thông minh has low battery power, so you’ll know when to charge it. Cortamãng cầu will offer a “find my phone” feature that can remotely geolocate your phone on a maps or ring it if you thua thảm it in nearby. Ask Cortamãng cầu for “directions to lớn ” on your PC, and you’ll see those same directions on your phone. These are just the current features, too, so you can expect Microsoft to lớn add more.

More Desktop Apps & Games Come to lớn the Windows Store


RELATED: Why You Shouldn"t Buy Rise of the Tomb Raider (and Other PC Games) from the Windows Store

The Windows Store is caught in a tough place right now. We want it khổng lồ get more desktop apps & games, but we don’t want them limited by the Universal Windows Platsize (UWP). Microsoft is trying to fix that disconnect in the Anniversary Update.

Regular desktop apps are finally coming to the Windows Store–at least, as long as developers “convert” them to lớn the UWP. This allows for the easy discovery và installation of the Windows Store, but supposedly comes without all the limitations UWPhường. apps traditionally have sầu. We still aren’t quite sure what this means, và which apps might be candidates for a clean conversion without limitations, but it’s an intriguing proposition.

Microsoft has released a tool that allows anyone to convert any desktop application on their computer lớn a sandboxed UWP. application. Developers can use this to lớn convert their own apps for uploading lớn the Windows Store, so Windows desktop applications will appear in the Store. You could use it khổng lồ convert an old desktop application lớn a UWP.. application and sideload the application, installing it from outside the Store, if you wanted to.

Games are a big part of this. We’ve already seen that games bought from the Windows Store are missing certain features. Microsoft has already added support for disabling Vsync and enabling G-Sync & Freesync. They promise better support for multiple GPUs as well as modding, overlays, and more in the future. Microsoft also says they’ll soon support bundles & season passes in the Windows Store. But only time will tell if games get feature parity with their regular desktop counterparts.

Windows 10 Gets a Dark Theme (& More Theme Options)


When Windows 10 was released, it included a hidden dark theme you could enable by changing a registry setting or by pressing a secret keyboard shortcut in the Store ứng dụng. You could also change your theme in the Edge browser–but just for Edge. This theme was incomplete. With the Anniversary Update, you can now choose between light & dark modes in Settings > Personalization > Colors. Its designed for Windows Store apps, but not every phầm mềm will listen to this setting & obey it–some apps, especially those from third-tiệc ngọt developers, control their own theme settings. This also means File Explorer will remain as blindingly trắng as ever.

There’s also now a separate “Show color on title bar” option here, allowing you to lớn only apply your color of choice lớn the window titlebars and continue using a blaông xã Start thực đơn, taskbar, and action center.

Microsoft Edge Finally Supports Browser Extensions


RELATED: How lớn Install Extensions in Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge was originally supposed to lớn launch with browser extensions when Windows 10 was released, but it didn’t happen. This is a big reason MIcrosoft Edge felt so half-baked and lost so many users. With the Anniversary Update, Edge will finally tư vấn browser extensions.

Edge uses Chrome-style extensions, & Microsoft will provide a tool that helps developers quickly convert Chrome extensions to Edge extensions. (Firefox is also moving to Chrome-style extensions, too.) These Edge extensions are already available in the Windows Store, which is where you’ll install them.

At launch, the Windows Store offers the Adblock, Adblochồng Plus, Amazon Assistant, Evernote Web Clipper, LastPass, Mouse Gestures, Office Online, Onechú ý Web Clipper, Page Analyzer, Sạc It Button (for Pinterest), Reddit Enhancement Suite, Save sầu lớn Pocket, & Translate for Microsoft Edge extensions.

Edge Gets Click-to-Play Flash, Pinned Tabs, Web Notifications, and Swipe Navigation

Setting the Flash plug-in to click-to-play can help you avoid Flash’s security holes và battery-draining behavior. Edge currently doesn’t offer much control over Flash, with only a single browser-wide “Use Adobe Flash Player” option in its settings.

Microsoft has announced that, with the Anniversary Update, Edge will automatically pause Flash content that isn’t integral to the page và you’ll have sầu lớn clichồng it to lớn play. Games & videos on website pages should work normally, but Flash advertisements won’t automatically play. Google Chrome already made this change, so Edge is following in Chrome’s footsteps here, too.

Edge allows you khổng lồ pin tabs, like other modern browsers do. Just right-click or long-press a tab & select “Sạc.” The tab will turn into a small icon at the left side of your tab bar, and it’ll always appear when you open Edge. This is ideal for websites you always want open, like gmail and social-networking sites.

Microsoft is also adding support for website notifications. When you visit a website, it can ask you to allow notifications. That website can then deliver notifications to you & they’ll appear in your Action Center–all without you installing an tiện ích. This feature is already enabled, & works in Skype for Web. Cliông xã the notification and you’ll be taken directly to lớn the trang web that displayed it.

If you have sầu a touch screen, you’ll be happy to lớn hear that a useful feature from Windows 8’s “Metro” version of Internet Explorer has now returned to lớn Edge. Edge now allows you to lớn swipe lớn navigate. Swipe anywhere left or right on a page khổng lồ go back or forward. It’s more convenient than tapping those small “Back” and “Forward” buttons with your finger.

Microsoft has also done a lot of work on the Edge engine. Microsoft promises various battery life và performance improvements in Edge.

Windows Hello Brings Fingerprint Authentication lớn Apps & Websites

RELATED: U2F Explained: How Google và Other Companies Are Creating a Universal Security Token

Fingerprint sensors have sầu been a huge convenience on phones & tablets, và Windows currently supports it for logging inlớn your máy vi tính too via Windows Hello–provided it has the necessary hardware. But in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Windows Hello will support Windows apps và Microsoft Edge, so you can securely log inlớn apps and website sites using your fingerprint as well–not just Windows itself.

This actually uses the Fivì chưng U2F standard, which various other sites và browsers are implementing in different ways. For example, you can use a physical USB key to lớn log inlớn your Google trương mục in Chrome.

Windows Hello Lets You Unlochồng Your PC With “Companion Devices”

Developer documentation reveals the new “Companion Device Framework” for unlocking your PC. Windows Hello–which currently supports unlocking your computer with your face or fingerprint–will allow you to lớn unloông xã your PC with “companion devices.” For example, this could include a Microsoft Band fitness band or any type of điện thoại thông minh.

Microsoft suggests a number of examples. You could insert a USB security token into lớn your PC’s USB port and press a button or tap a device on an NFC reader. Your phone could be already paired with your PC over công nghệ Bluetooth không dây and your PC could skết thúc a notification to your nearby phone, which you could use to lớn unlock your PC. A fitness bvà that can authenticate its wearer could unlochồng your PC when you clap nearby.

Windows Ink Improves Digital Drawing và Annotation in Lots of Apps

RELATED: Touch Screen Laptops Aren"t Just a Gimmichồng. They"re Actually Useful

cảm biến screen laptops are more useful than they seem, and Microsoft is pushing that forward even more with Windows Ink: the ability to lớn draw và annotate with a pen in all kinds of useful ways. For example, you can jot down notes in the Sticky Notes ứng dụng, which on its own is mildly convenient. But Windows 10 is smart enough khổng lồ recognize words like “tomorrow”, turn them inlớn liên kết that Cortamãng cầu can use khổng lồ phối reminders or perform other tasks. This works with other words too, including places that Bing can point lớn on a maps.

Windows Ink is built into lớn plenty of other apps, too, like Maps (which lets you measure distances between two points by drawing a line) & Microsoft Office (which lets you highlight text with your pen or delete words by striking them out). And, of course, it’s built for artists as well, which can use a pen for digital drawing in plenty of different apps. There’s a virtual ruler complete with a compass to help you draw straight lines at the correct angles.

A new “Ink Workspace” also arrives in Windows 10. Press a button on your pen–if your pen has a button–và you’ll see a danh sách of apps that support ink input đầu vào so you can quickly start writing or drawing without fumbling through desktop windows. You can also cliông chồng or tap the pen button that will automatically appear in your taskbar’s notification area. If you don’t have pen paired with your device, you can right-cliông xã the taskbar và select “Show Windows Ink Workspace” to enable it manually. More Windows 10 apps will gain inking support, too.

The Pen settings page at Settings > Devices > Pen now allows you to choose what happens when you press the button on the pen–for example, you could open the OneNote ứng dụng directly. You can also choose to ignore touch đầu vào on the screen while using the pen, ensuring you don’t accidentally tap anything while drawing.

Wi-Fi Sense’s Controversial Password-Sharing Feature Is Gone

RELATED: What is Wi-Fi Sense and Why Does It Want Your Facebook Account?

Microsoft has removed the controversial Wi-Fi Sense feature that allowed you khổng lồ mô tả Wi-Fi network và their passwords with your Facebook,, và Skype contacts. Microsoft never did a good job of explaining this feature–perhaps it would have been more popular & less controversial if Microsoft had. Either way, Microsoft says very few people actually used this feature, so it wasn’t worth the effort lớn keep it around.

Wi-Fi Sense isn’t completely gone, but it now connects you only khổng lồ public hotspots. It won’t connect you to a private Wi-Fi network and no longer offers a way khổng lồ tóm tắt your Wi-Fi credentials with others. You can find what remains of Wi-Fi Sense under Settings > Network & Internet > Wi-Fi.

Windows Defender Can Provide Additional Protection If You Use Another Antivirus

In the current version of Windows 10, the Windows Defender anti-malware application automatically disables itself if you install another anti-malware program.

In the Anniversary Update, however, Windows Defender receives a new “Limited Periodic Scanning” feature. It can automatically turn itself on and scan your system occasionally, even if you have another antivirus program installed. Windows Defender gives you a second layer or protection, or a “second opinion” on whether your computer is infected.

Just head lớn Settings > Update và Security > Windows Defender và turn on the “Limited Periodic Scanning” feature lớn enable this. This option will only appear if you have another antivi khuẩn program installed, và it isn’t on by default. If you’re only using Windows Defender as your antivirut, it’s already scanning your computer–both with scheduled & real-time scans.

New PCs Will Include More Advertisements in the Start Menu

Windows 10’s Anniversary Update makes more room for advertisements in the Start thực đơn on new installations. The amount of Microsoft ứng dụng tiles pinned khổng lồ the Start thực đơn by mặc định will be reduced from 17 to lớn 12. The amount of “suggested apps” that appear here will increase from 5 lớn 10.

Uninstall the app–or unpin the tile if it’s not downloaded yet–& that advertisement will be gone forever. But, as easy as these advertisements are to lớn remove sầu, new PCs will have a more cluttered Start menu with more ads. Neowin noticed this information in a presentation directed at device manufacturers.

Cortana Gets More Useful Features (và Becomes Almost Mandatory)

Cortamãng cầu also includes new reminder features, including “photo lớn reminders.” For example, you could take a pholớn of a product you want khổng lồ buy the next time you go shopping, và tell Cortamãng cầu khổng lồ remind you with the photo the next time you’re at the grocery store.

If you have sầu the Groove sầu Music Pass–that’s Microsoft’s version of an unlimited music streaming service lượt thích Spotify, Apple Music, or Google Play Music All Access–Cortana can now play music you request. Just say “Hey Cortamãng cầu, play ”, “Hey Cortana, play ”, “Hey Cortamãng cầu, play ”, & “Hey Cortamãng cầu, pause” khổng lồ control this. This only works if you’re using the US English region at the moment.

Cortamãng cầu can also now set & control timers, which is convenient. Say things lượt thích “Hey Cortamãng cầu, phối a timer”, “Hey Cortamãng cầu, set a timer for 10 minutes”, “Hey Cortamãng cầu, how much time is left?” và “Hey Cortana, cancel my timer” lớn work with timers.

The downside is that there’s no easily accessible option for disabling Cortamãng cầu anymore. You can make Cortana not rethành viên your personal information if you’re concerned about privacy, but you can’t fully disable it without a hidden registry haông chồng or group policy setting.

Microsoft Has Changed Its Mind About Skype…Again

With Windows 8 and 8.1, Microsoft offered both “Skype for Windows” and “Skype for Windows desktop” applications. The “Modern” Skype for Windows application ran in the full-screen interface và was pretty flaky. Microsoft abruptly discontinued the Modern version of Skype a month before Windows 10 was released, announcing it was refocusing development attention on the desktop version of Skype Windows users actually used.

Windows 10 launched with a Get Skype application that encouraged you to lớn tải về the desktop application. Windows 10’s first big update, the November update, added a few beta applications–Messaging, Phone, & Video–apps that worked with Skype. These are separate applications for text messages, audio calls, và video clip calls.

Microsoft has now changed its mind again và will discontinue those three separate Skype applications on the desktop. Instead, Microsoft will create a new universal Windows tiện ích version of Skype that will eventually replace the traditional desktop application when it has enough features. The Skype Pnhận xét application is now available.

A new feature in the Skype application will enable “messaging everywhere“. Use Skype on an Android phone or Windows thiết bị di động phone and you’ll be able to lớn sover và receive sầu SMS messages from your Windows 10 PC. They’ll just be routed through your phone via the Skype application. This feature was supposed khổng lồ be implemented in the “Messaging” application in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, but Microsoft changed its mind và removed the feature late in the development process so it could be added to Skype.

Windows Gets Its Own Linux Comm& Line

RELATED: How lớn Install and Use the Linux Bash Shell on Windows 10

In between all the developer talk, Microsoft announced something pretty huge: A true Bash shell in Windows 10. This is not a port lượt thích Cygwin, or a virtualization. It’s a full Ubuntu comm& line running natively right in Windows, built in partnership with Canonical. It comes with apt-get khổng lồ tải về command line binaries, & all the built-in tools you’d expect from a Linux shell, like ls lớn browse your filesystem. This is mostly a tool for developers, but cross-platsize power users may find this particularly useful as well.

This is actually the full Ubuntu userspace running on Windows. Think of it lượt thích the reverse of Wine–Windows is gaining the ability to run Linux binaries natively on Windows. This is big news for developers, but it won’t tư vấn hệ thống software or graphical applications. It’s just a Bash shell, complete with tư vấn for the exact same binaries you’d run in a Bash shell on Ubuntu Linux, on Windows. You should eventually be able lớn launch more shells from the Bash shell, too–the release notes now say the popular Zsh shell is now functional. Cheông chồng out our guide for info on how lớn mix it up.

It’s Easier khổng lồ Get a Clean Windows 10 System Without Bloatware

Microsoft is experimenting with a new tool that allows you to get a clean Windows 10 system. The “Rephối your PC” option just resets your PC to lớn its manufacturer default settings, & many PC manufacturers include a lot of junk on their PCs. You can always reinstall Windows 10 yourself, but you have khổng lồ tải về installation truyền thông media. Most PC users wouldn’t want lớn bother with that.

To make getting a clean Windows 10 system easier for everyone, there’s a new “Learn how lớn start fresh with a clean installation of Windows” option at Settings > Update và Security > Recovery. This currently link a Microsoft Answers forum thread where you can download a tool that walks you through the Windows 10 reinstallation process.

The Start Menu Has Been Redesigned

Microsoft has changed the way Windows 10’s Start thực đơn works. The “All Apps” option is now gone–you’ll just see a full list of installed applications at the left side of your Start thực đơn. Your most frequently used và recently added applications will appear at the top of this danh sách. It’ll show the three most recently added applications instead of a single one, & you can expvà this danh mục lớn see more applications sorted by when you installed them.

Important buttons like the File Explorer, Settings, và Shut Down buttons are now always located at the left side of the Start thực đơn.

OneDrive sầu users will be happy khổng lồ know that they can now search all their files–both files on the PC and files stored online in OneDrive–from the Start menu.

Task View Gets Some Improvements

You can now pin windows in the Task View interface, making them always appear on every virtual desktop instead of a single virtual desktop. Right-clichồng a window in the Task View interface và select “Show this window on all desktops” to pin it. For example, you may want khổng lồ pin a messaging or music application lớn all desktops for easy access.

There’s now a new touchpad gesture for switching between multiple desktops, too. Just place four fingers on your touchpad & swipe left or swipe right. This requires a certified “precision touchpad,” so it won’t work with all touchpads. And yes, this is the same touchpad gesture Apple uses on Macs.

Tablet Mode Is More Like Windows 8

Tablet Mode sees some helpful improvements that will make Windows 10’s Tablet Mode function more lượt thích Windows 8’s full-screen “Metro” interface.

When your system is in Tablet Mode, the All Apps danh sách will now appear in full-screen mode–just lượt thích on Windows 8. You can toggle between the tiles view & danh sách of apps with options at the left side of the screen.

You can also choose to automatically hide the taskbar while in tablet mode. These options are available under System > Tablet Mode in the Settings ứng dụng. With auto-hide enabled, you can swipe up from the bottom of the screen lớn show or hide the taskbar. The entire screen will be reserved for the app you’re currently using.

The Taskbar Gets Calendar Integration và More

The Windows taskbar sees some important improvements, too. The taskbar clochồng is now integrated with your calendar, so you can click or tap the time and see a list of the calendar events you have sầu scheduled for today. Tap an event–or tap the “+” button to lớn add an event–and the Calendar app will open.

The sound panel is also more useful. You can click or tap the speaker icon and switch between multiple output devices–like speakers & headphones–if you have more than one connected.

Taskbar settings are now integrated into lớn the new Settings ứng dụng, and you can access them at Settings > Personalization > Taskbar. You can also just right-click the taskbar and select “Settings” khổng lồ open this new screen.

The Loông xã Screen Is Improved, Too

Microsoft heard user complaints, & your email address will no longer appear on your loông xã screen if you sign in with a Microsoft tài khoản. This helps preserve your privacy. You can re-enable this from Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options > Privacy, if you lượt thích, displaying your gmail address directly on your loông chồng screen.

The lochồng screen now features built-in truyền thông controls, which appear at the bottom-right corner of the screen along with album art for any playing music. You can control music playbachồng without unlocking your PC.

Cortana can now be used on your lock screen, too. Head lớn Cortana’s Settings, find the “Lock screen options” section, & activate the “Let me use Cortana even when my device is locked” option. With “Hey Cortana” enabled, you can talk to your computer even while it’s locked. For sensitive sầu tasks, you’ll be asked to lớn unlochồng your PC first.

Battery Options Become More Powerful

The Battery Saver screen under Settings > System was renamed Battery.

Its detailed screen now offers easy per-application settings for controlling whether an application can run in the background. Aside from “Always allow in background” and “Never allow in background,” there’s a new “Managed by Windows” option. Windows will try khổng lồ be smarter, temporarily turning off applications if they’re using a lot of resources in the background & you don’t appear to lớn be using the applications.

Windows Update Is More Respectful of Your Time

Under Settings > Update và Security > Windows Update, you can now set your “active hours,” which are the hours when you’re most actively using your computer. Windows Update will avoid restarting to automatically install updates during those hours.

There’s also a new “Use my sign in info khổng lồ automatically finish setting up my device after an update” option under the advanced Windows Update settings. Normally, whenever you install a major update, you have to sign in before Windows 10 finishes the setup process. Enable this option và you won’t have to enter the password during the setup process.

The Action Center Is More Convenient và Customizable

It’s easier to lớn get lớn the kích hoạt Center. The Action Center button is now located at the far right corner of the taskbar, making it easier to lớn find. It’s no longer mixed in with the other system tray icons. Notifications are now grouped by ứng dụng in the kích hoạt Center. They’ll take up less screen space, and you can see more notifications at once.

You can now quickly dismiss notifications in the Action Center by middle-clicking them. Middle-cliông chồng an application’s name in the kích hoạt Center & Windows will dismiss all notifications associated with that application.

These notifications are now more customizable, too. Under Settings > System > Notifications và Actions, you can now choose whether an application’s notifications are considered “Normal,” “High,” or “Priority” in the kích hoạt Center. You can also choose how many notifications can appear at once for each application. Each application can display three notifications at a time by mặc định.

Moreover, the Quichồng Actions at the bottom of the kích hoạt Center are finally customizable. Head to Settings > System > Notifications & actions and you’ll be able khổng lồ customize exactly which quick action buttons appear here. The Wi-Fi quichồng action will now take you to a danh sách of available networks rather than toggling your Wi-Fi on or off, something Microsoft says confused a lot of people.

Apps Can Now Take Over When You Visit a Website

Windows 10 now allows universal apps khổng lồ be associated with websites. For example, if you navigate khổng lồ a TripAdvisor web page in Microsoft Edge, Windows 10 could instead open the TripAdvisor tiện ích displaying that page.

This feature isn’t completely functional yet, as universal apps have sầu khổng lồ be updated for it. However, you’ll find a settings page for controlling which apps are associated with websites at Settings > System > Apps for Websites.

The Xbox One Becomes More Windows-Like

Microsoft is also making a big push for a unified app store across platforms. That means developers can easily make their Windows Store apps work on the Xbox. The Xbox is also getting Cortamãng cầu, which comes with some new gaming-related features, lượt thích game recommendations và tips. The Xbox will support background music, multiple GPUs, and the ability lớn turn off Vsync as well.

Emojis Get an Overhaul

Microsoft is updating the entire mix of emojis included in Windows 10. As Microsoft puts it: “We are updating the entire phối of font-based emoji in Windows 10 that aligns with the Microsoft Design Language with a distinct visual style as well as the Unicode standard. These new emoji are designed to lớn be detailed, expressive sầu, and playful. Their larger kích cỡ takes full advantage of every px and the two-pixel outline allows for emoji to appear on any color background without loss of fidelity.” You can also choose different skin tones across the emojis that represent people.

Connect Helps Phones With Continuum and PCs with Miracast

There’s a new “Connect” application designed for use with Windows 10 phones that support Continuum. It allows you to lớn connect your phone to lớn your PC without a dock, cable, or Miracast adapter.

This application also enables a “Project to lớn PC” feature. PCs with Miracast can also use the Connect application to mirror their displays on other PCs.

Continuum, which allows you lớn power a Windows desktop experience from a Windows Phone (but only with universal apps), is the big, unique feature Windows 10 sản phẩm điện thoại offers. We’re not surprised to lớn see Microsoft focusing on it.

Other Changes and New Features

Windows 10’s Anniversary Update includes many more changes than these, with small enhancements và bug fixes everywhere. Here are some of the most interesting smaller changes:

That’s a lot of changes, but even this menu isn’t complete. Microsoft has changed many other smaller things, updating icons & fixing bugs. Most of the apps included with Windows 10 have also been updated on an ongoing basis through the Windows Store, and they now include many new features and tweaks they didn’t have when Windows 10 was released a year ago.
