The Anniversary Update will report itself as version 1607, despite the fact that it technically launched in August instead of July. If you don’t have it yet, try checking for updates in Windows 10’s Settings > Update và Security. You can also start the update manually from Microsoft’s support page here.

This post was originally written on March 30, 2016, but has since been updated with features from the Insider Pđánh giá & final release.

Cortana Becomes a Whole Lot Smarter


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

More interestingly, though, Cortana can parse even more information about stuff it thinks you might need. For example, the on-stage chạy thử showed us that Cortamãng cầu can respond to lớn things lượt thích “Skết thúc Chuchồng 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 mix of features.

Cortamãng cầu can also make proactive sầu suggestions for you. If you receive tin nhắn confirmation of flight details, it’ll add them to your calendar. If you promised Chuông xã you’d send hlặng that PowerPoint in an tin nhắn, Cortana will know, and remind you to lớn fulfill that commitment later on.

Furthermore, if you add an appointment to lớn your calendar, it’ll know if that appointment overlaps with another, và ask you if you want khổng lồ re-schedule one of the overlapping events. Or, if you have 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 sầu available. In short, Cortana is getting more proactive sầu, so you don’t have sầu lớn 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)


Cortamãng cầu on Windows 10 will now integrate with the Cortana application on your Android or Windows smartphone. You’ll just need to lớn install the Cortamãng cầu Android app & sign in with the same Microsoft tài khoản on both devices. iPhone users are out of luông chồng, as iOS is too locked down for Microsoft to integrate with it as deeply. This just works between Windows 10 PCs and Windows Smartphone 10 phones running the lachạy thử software. It now works between Android phones và Windows 10 PCs, too–just be sure you have the latest Cortamãng cầu ứng dụng installed from Google Play.

Cortamãng cầu can mirror all your Android phone’s notifications lớn your PC, giving you all your notifications in Windows 10’s kích hoạt Center. You’ll also see a notification on your PC when your smartphone has low battery power, so you’ll know when to lớn charge it. Cortamãng cầu will offer a “find my phone” feature that can remotely geolocate your phone on a bản đồ or ring it if you thua it in nearby. Ask Cortamãng cầu for “directions to ” 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 lớn add more.

More Desktop Apps & Games Come 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 lớn get more desktop apps & games, but we don’t want them limited by the Universal Windows Platform (UWP). Microsoft is trying to fix that disconnect in the Anniversary Update.

Regular desktop apps are finally coming lớn the Windows Store–at least, as long as developers “convert” them to the UWPhường. This allows for the easy discovery & installation of the Windows Store, but supposedly comes without all the limitations UWPhường apps traditionally have. We still aren’t quite sure what this means, and 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 lớn convert any desktop application on their computer lớn a sandboxed UWP application. Developers can use this to lớn convert their own apps for uploading to lớn the Windows Store, so Windows desktop applications will appear in the Store. You could use it to lớn convert an old desktop application to lớn a UWPhường 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 tư vấn for disabling Vsync & enabling G-Sync and Freesync. They promise better support for multiple GPUs as well as modding, overlays, và more in the future. Microsoft also says they’ll soon support bundles and 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 (and 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 tiện ích. 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 và dark modes in Settings > Personalization > Colors. Its designed for Windows Store apps, but not every phầm mềm will listen to lớn this setting và obey it–some apps, especially those from third-buổi tiệc nhỏ developers, control their own theme settings. This also means File Explorer will remain as blindingly white as ever.

There’s also now a separate “Show color on title bar” option here, allowing you khổng lồ only apply your color of choice to lớn the window titlebars và continue using a blaông xã Start menu, taskbar, và 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 & lost so many users. With the Anniversary Update, Edge will finally support browser extensions.

Edge uses Chrome-style extensions, & Microsoft will provide a tool that helps developers quickly convert Chrome extensions khổng lồ Edge extensions. (Firefox is also moving lớn 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 Adbloông xã, Adbloông chồng Plus, Amazon Assistant, Evernote Web Clipper, LastPass, Mouse Gestures, Office Online, Onechú ý Web Clipper, Page Analyzer, Sạc Pin It Button (for Pinterest), Reddit Enhancement Suite, Save to lớn Pocket, và 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 & 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 to clichồng it lớn play. Games và videos on web 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 lớn pin tabs, lượt thích other modern browsers vì chưng. Just right-click or long-press a tab and select “Sạc Pin.” The tab will turn inlớn a small icon at the left side of your tab bar, and it’ll always appear when you open Edge. This is igiảm giá for websites you always want open, lượt thích email và social-networking sites.

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

If you have sầu a touch screen, you’ll be happy to hear that a useful feature from Windows 8’s “Metro” version of Internet Explorer has now returned lớn Edge. Edge now allows you lớn swipe to navigate. Swipe anywhere left or right on a page to 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 khổng lồ 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 and tablets, và Windows currently supports it for logging inkhổng lồ your máy tính xách tay too via Windows Hello–provided it has the necessary hardware. But in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Windows Hello will tư vấn Windows apps & Microsoft Edge, so you can securely log into lớn apps và web sites using your fingerprint as well–not just Windows itself.

This actually uses the Fibởi vì U2F standard, which various other sites & browsers are implementing in different ways. For example, you can use a physical USB key khổng lồ log into your Google account 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 unloông chồng your PC with “companion devices.” For example, this could include a Microsoft Bvà fitness band or any type of smartphone.

Microsoft suggests a number of examples. You could insert a USB security token into 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 Bluetooth & your PC could sover a notification to your nearby phone, which you could use lớn unlock your PC. A fitness b& that can authenticate its wearer could unloông chồng your PC when you clap nearby.

Windows Ink Improves Digital Drawing và Annotation in Lots of Apps


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

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

Windows Ink is built inlớn plenty of other apps, too, lượt thích Maps (which lets you measure distances between two points by drawing a line) and 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–and you’ll see a list 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 xã or tap the pen button that will automatically appear in your taskbar’s notification area. If you don’t have sầu pen paired with your device, you can right-clichồng the taskbar & select “Show Windows Ink Workspace” khổng lồ enable it manually. More Windows 10 apps will gain inking tư vấn, too.

The Pen settings page at Settings > Devices > Pen now allows you to lớn choose what happens when you press the button on the pen–for example, you could open the Onecảnh báo ứng dụng directly. You can also choose to ignore touch input 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 và Why Does It Want Your Facebook Account?

Microsoft has removed the controversial Wi-Fi Sense feature that allowed you to cốt truyện Wi-Fi network and their passwords with your Facebook,, and Skype contacts. Microsoft never did a good job of explaining this feature–perhaps it would have sầu 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 to lớn public hotspots. It won’t connect you khổng lồ a private Wi-Fi network & no longer offers a way lớn cốt truyện your Wi-Fi credentials with others. You can find what remains of Wi-Fi Sense under Settings > Network and 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 & 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 & 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, & 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 app tiles pinned lớn the Start thực đơn by mặc định will be reduced from 17 khổng lồ 12. The amount of “suggested apps” that appear here will increase from 5 khổng lồ 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 khổng lồ remove, new PCs will have sầu a more cluttered Start thực đơn with more ads. Neowin noticed this information in a presentation directed at device manufacturers.

Cortana Gets More Useful Features (& Becomes Almost Mandatory)


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

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

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

Despite all these powerful features that require Microsoft accounts & personalization, Cortamãng cầu is becoming more friendly lớn people who haven’t set it up yet. You’ll be able to ask Cortana simple questions và get answers without actually setting up and personalizing Cortamãng cầu first.

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 xã or group policy setting.

Microsoft Has Changed Its Mind About Skype…Again


With Windows 8 và 8.1, Microsoft offered both “Skype for Windows” và “Skype for Windows desktop” applications. The “Modern” Skype for Windows application ran in the full-screen interface & 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 khổng lồ download the desktop application. Windows 10’s first big update, the November update, added a few beta applications–Messaging, Phone, và Video–apps that worked with Skype. These are separate applications for text messages, audio calls, và 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 Pđánh giá application is now available.

A new feature in the Skype application will enable “messaging everywhere“. Use Skype on an Android phone or Windows di động phone và you’ll be able khổng lồ send & receive SMS messages from your Windows 10 PC. They’ll just be routed through your phone via the Skype application. This feature was supposed to lớn 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 lớn Skype.

Windows Gets Its Own Linux Comm& Line


RELATED: How lớn Install và 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 to download commvà 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-platform 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 support VPS software or graphical applications. It’s just a Bash shell, complete with support for the exact same binaries you’d run in a Bash shell on Ubuntu Linux, on Windows. You should eventually be able to launch more shells from the Bash shell, too–the release notes now say the popular Zsh shell is now functional. Chechồng out our guide for info on how to lớn set it up.

It’s Easier lớn 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 “Reset your PC” option just resets your PC to its manufacturer mặc định settings, & many PC manufacturers include a lot of junk on their PCs. You can always reinstall Windows 10 yourself, but you have to download installation truyền thông media. Most PC users wouldn’t want khổng lồ 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 & Security > Recovery. This currently links a Microsoft Answers forums thread where you can tải về 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 danh mục of installed applications at the left side of your Start menu. Your most frequently used & recently added applications will appear at the top of this menu. It’ll show the three most recently added applications instead of a single one, & you can expvà this menu to see more applications sorted by when you installed them.

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

OneDrive users will be happy to know that they can now search all their files–both files on the PC và 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-cliông xã a window in the Task View interface và select “Show this window on all desktops” to pin it. For example, you may want to lớn pin a messaging or music application khổng lồ 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 like Windows 8’s full-screen “Metro” interface.

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

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

The Taskbar Gets Calendar Integration & More


The Windows taskbar sees some important improvements, too. The taskbar clochồng is now integrated with your calendar, so you can clichồng or tap the time & see a các mục of the calendar events you have scheduled for today. Tap an event–or tap the “+” button lớn add an event–& the Calendar ứng dụng will open.

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

Taskbar settings are now integrated into the new Settings phầm mềm, và you can access them at Settings > Personalization > Taskbar. You can also just right-cliông chồng the taskbar và select “Settings” khổng lồ open this new screen.

The Loông xã Screen Is Improved, Too


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

The loông xã 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 playbaông xã without unlocking your PC.

Cortamãng cầu can now be used on your loông xã screen, too. Head lớn Cortana’s Settings, find the “Loông chồng screen options” section, và 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 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” & “Never allow in background,” there’s a new “Managed by Windows” option. Windows will try to lớn 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 phối your “active sầu 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 to 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 khổng lồ sign in before Windows 10 finishes the thiết đặt process. Enable this option và you won’t have to enter the password during the setup process.

The Action Center Is More Convenient & Customizable


It’s easier lớn get lớn the Action Center. The kích hoạt Center button is now located at the far right corner of the taskbar, making it easier to find. It’s no longer mixed in with the other system tray icons. Notifications are now grouped by tiện ích in the kích hoạt Center. They’ll take up less screen space, & 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 and 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 Action 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 Action Center are finally customizable. Head to Settings > System > Notifications & actions & you’ll be able khổng lồ customize exactly which quiông xã action buttons appear here. The Wi-Fi quiông chồng action will now take you khổng lồ a list 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 lớn 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 app 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 ứng dụng store across platforms. That means developers can easily make their Windows Store apps work on the Xbox. The Xbox is also getting Cortana, 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 khổng lồ 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 set 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 be detailed, expressive sầu, & playful. Their larger form size takes full advantage of every px và the two-pixel outline allows for emoji lớn 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 và PCs with Miracast


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

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

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

Other Changes & 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:

Activation has been tweaked. A “digital entitlement” your hardware received if you took advantage of the free Windows 10 upgrade offer is now known as a “digital license”. If you sign in with your Microsoft tài khoản, the entitlement will be associated with your Microsoft trương mục offline. If you need to lớn re-activate Windows 10 after a hardware change in the future, the activation wizard will be able lớn use your Microsoft trương mục to lớn help re-associate the digital license with your hardware.Windows Defender now has an inhỏ that appears in the notification area and produces more notifications by mặc định. This makes it more clear khổng lồ average Windows users that Windows 10 has a built-in antivirus protecting them. Windows Defender can also perform a boot-time offline scan lớn find và remove more nasty malware.You can now remix apps, which works lượt thích clearing an app’s cađậy data on Android. Head lớn Settings > Apps & features, select an phầm mềm, và select “Advanced options” to lớn find this option. This same screen allows you to remove sầu “add-ons” & downloadable nội dung associated with apps.The Xbox phầm mềm now provides “game hubs” for the top 1000 most popular Windows desktop games, so it’s more integrated with the games people are actually playing on PCs. They’ll appear in Xbox activity feeds, too.The Credentials and User Account Control dialogs have been updated with a new look. When you need to enter credentials, Windows will now allow you lớn choose Windows Hello, a PIN, a certificate, or a password. The UAC dialog now supports dark mode, too.The File Explorer window now has a new icon. It’ll fit in better with the rest of Windows 10’s design.The Windows Insider Program settings page has been moved. It’s now located at Settings > Update & security > Windows Insider Program, so it isn’t buried under the Windows Update settings.The Windows Feedback app shows small tags on feedbaông xã posts with information about Microsoft’s response to lớn an issue, if one is available.You can choose to lớn lift the 260 character limit for NTFS file system paths. A new “Enable NTFS long paths” group policy setting allows you to lớn enable this feature.Some useful group policy options no longer function on Windows 10 Professional and require Windows 10 Enterprise or Education. These include the ability lớn disable the loông chồng screen, tips, và “Microsoft consumer experience” that downloads apps like Candy Crush Saga.

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