Microsoft aims to create a more versatile Windows 10


You can also pick up where you left off via a Cortana feature that lets you do just that, not only on other Windows machines, but on iOS and Android devices as well, presuming you've got the Cortana app running on those devices.

Timeline remembers exactly what you were doing on your computer, so you can zoom back in time and see what applications, websites or files you were working on this morning.

The new Microsoft Fluent Design System is Microsoft's answer to developers' troubles of creating expressive apps that work equally beautifully across a wide range of devices. Be it a photo, map link, paragraph, or even an animated gif, you can copy all these from the desktop and paste on a phone, as the familiar Clipboard is now cloud-powered.

The next major feature addition is OneDrive Files On-Demand, which makes it easier to access cloud documents locally. For people using multiple devices, Myerson said Microsoft Fluent Design System will deliver intuitive, harmonious, responsive and inclusive cross-device experiences and interactions.

What is the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update?

The operating system update will allow you to immerse yourself in "mixed reality" apps and turn your photos and videos into stories using artificial intelligence, according to Microsoft.

The Fall Creators Update will also bring a feature called Timeline that changes the way recent apps are organized. The Windows Story Remix app will have an ability to switch up the automatically created videos based on data. Rather than a massive shift, though, Fluent Design is all about helping enable similar experiences across many different types of devices, Microsoft says. "And we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16193 for PC to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring today". Microsoft also debuted its plans for virtual reality, which it is calling "mixed reality" and launched a new motion controller that works with a variety of VR headsets, including its own HoloLens.
