Whats new in the Bag ?

Game Mode

Its called to be the biggest update for Gamers and claimed to provide the best experience in performance via Microsoft's Windows Store and old Win32 Application Platform. To get set go for the gaming mode, user can use Windows Button + G which will provide the specific options of Record, Capture, Broadcast with Settings and under Settings you will get to see General for Game Mode and Game DVR, Broadcast and Audio related options. The basic theory behind the Game Mode to improve the performance of your PC while playing the games and let the maximum resources in for the on going game and cut it down from the others.

With Broadcasting feature, its now more easy to demonstrate your gaming ability Live, it can be used to create a tutorials for Windows 10 as well. Though unfortunately as of now you can only stream to your XBox Live Community and not in the popular alternatives like Youtube. This Service is powered by Beam which Microsoft bought in August last year. To enhance improvements, Microsoft partnered with Dolby to bring Dolby Atoms positional sound to PC and XBox One, for this you don't needs for any extra bit of Hardware and with any pair of Headphones you will feel the Dolby Atoms positional sound, thanks to Windows 10.


Windows 10 knows for the two big controversy, one is Privacy and another one is no control in updates. Since Microsoft's concentration from the update is over they now have a task of Customer-centric Privacy. The new Privacy as per Microsoft is simpler with there is no room for "Intermediate" like it used to be before, they continue with Full Access or No Access with a beautiful description of what users will miss if opt for No Access and how its beneficial for the Users if kept it on !! Users have the same toggling to enable or disable Privacy but introduced with a description part called Privacy Dashboard.

With every update Microsoft ask to look at the Privacy, Learn More and Accept. You can though update the same later as well under Settings > Privacy. Revamped policy strip away the option called "Enhanced" from a Feedback and Diagnostics now Microsoft only dealing with Basic and Full with Basic they will take only necessary data which will helps to keep the system upto date and secure and with Full its about the entire set of data which is also a by default selected option to serve you better !!

Pause the Update

Well its not for Home edition first of all, but for Professionals, Enterprises and Education Editions users, now you have a option to pause the update upto 35 days by going to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Advance Options > Pause Updates. But its not that there is no relief for Home Edition users, now with recent changes users have a option to choose "Pick a time" or snooze it upto next 3 days, its a relief for those who do not wants to disturb or wait till the update took its own time to update the system.

Windows made a slight update in Active Hours by increasing from 12 hours to 18 hours, you can set the time according to your convenience for the recent update installation. Now vanishing "Metered" from Windows 10 is little bit disappointing which used to barred further updates in the OS. Although you can enable it but it will hold partial updates and not full. According to Microsoft they will not push any heavy updates but only those which is required them to keep the OS running smoothly.

Although you can update the settings of Ethernet to Metered by going to Settings > Network & Internet > Ethernet, so that with Wired connection you can save data by keeping the essential update on. With Unified Update Platform though Windows promised to provide to make the future update little bit smaller then previous one like Anniversary Update or now with  Creators Update, though have mentioned about the approx size of the update so that Metered connection users should always be ready for it.

3D Paint

Creators Update is bit different with a inclusion of 3D Paint it came after the acquisition of Minecraft. Users can find it under Paint and when you click on it a separate window will be open for the same. Any professional and non professional can have a hand on 3D with new build on feature. You can now create a 3D model and can Preview it in 3D as well by rotating around or by zoom in before to used it in any small or big work. It supports with a extension of .fbx and .3mf file type.

With this new changes Windows 10 also supporting 3D contents in Edge Browser to upload and download 3D models including exported from Minecraft and Sketchup via community website called Remix3D. Windows 10 also have a potential to print 3D via 3D Printer and with this Microsoft will now have the aim to implement 3D thing on their Office Software by rolling out Updates or launching a new version.

Dynamic Lock

This feature is quite unique and will be cover the most of the Users of Windows 10 as with Dynamic Locking system any User who paired their Mobile Device with the Laptop via Bluetooth if left the system with their phones then it will automatically gets Locked within 30 seconds and then there will be no manual effort of Windows + L gonna required. Officially this facility is available with Smartphones but may be Bluetooth Enabled device can also work. For the setup you needs go under Settings > Accounts > Sign-In Options.

More Improved Cortana

With every update Microsoft's push is to expand and upgrade Cortana from Better to Best. Its their ambitious project and they're working with every possible improvements to remain competitive in the Market and now with Creators Update you can voice command Cortana for Turning off the PC, Restart, Locking the System or Put into Sleep. It will also hear you for Raising or Reducing the Voice.

Along with Cortana you will now getting Full Screen Mode after enabling "Hello Cortana", its also now flexible to set a Monthly or Yearly Reminder of special dates like Anniversary or Birthdays.

Edge Tab Preview Bar

Only update for Edge so far in this Creators Update, now user can see a preview of other Tab by clicking on a icon of down arrow which will also mention as Show Tab Previews. Edge will also block Flash plugins by default and going to support HTML 5 contents. Though you can choose whether to continue with Flash or not. Avoiding will enhance the performance, save the battery life and gonna increase the security.

E Books

Windows now offering E Books on their Windows Store "Books" Section though Windows 10 does not contain any E Book Reader App so far but yes Edge Browser do with a format like ePUB. When you tap Menu Button in Edge Browser you will found eBook Library along with Download, Favorite and History.

Night Light

Night Light is the previous Blue Light, its a follow of a theory which turn screen into a Warm Temperature so that you gets a sleep right way after using your system at Night.

You can allow Windows to automatically enable Night Light mode at Sunset and disable it at Sunrise. For a Manual configuration visit Settings > System > Display Night Light Settings.

Storage Sense

Enabling it will let Windows 10 automatically free up disk space, though feature is off by default. To enable it visit Settings > System > Storage and then Windows will automatically erase all the temporary files and recycle bin to free up the space.

Windows Defender Security Center

The old desktop application is now replaced with "Universal Windows Platform" with new Creators Update. Its now one stop destination from threat protection, gives you the better analysis of Device's Health and its Performance, Firewall, App and Browser Control which helps you to clean Manufacturer-installed bloatware. Also with this you can personalize the usage of the system for your Family Members and can buy suitable apps like Games and Learning Apps from Windows Store.

We can expect more updates and options with Windows 10, these features are the main highlight of Windows 10 Creators Update so far.
