The Windows 10 Spring Creators Update available to Insiders brings a host of new features across two separate versions. Microsoft continues tracking efforts for its operating system as a service. We take stock of all the novelties introduced.

The pace of new updates for Windows 10 does not slow down. Microsoft has set a goal to provide a new one every 6 months. Next spring, users will be able to experience the new update, Spring Creators Update , which will be deployed to everyone once the test period is over. For the moment, it is only the participants of the preliminary versions, the Insiders, who can access it. Let's take a look at the latest novelties introduced.

Windows 10 Spring Creators Update: Microsoft introduces new features

We had highlighted the "ultimate performance" mode of Windows 10 . This is a more advanced mode than the performance mode currently in place and reserved for Windows 10 Pro for Workstations. This is not all since the publisher provides access control UWP applications and the user can manage the permissions by itself through a dialog box. It's also about some other new features and bugfixes:

Timeline integration

The Windows timeline is a kind of history of the session, which will find his work over a period of 30 days. It will be possible to see the history of all the applications that have been launched, with the option of restoring a job. Thus, in case of data loss or file overwriting, it will be possible to recover an old version of his work. Initially, only Microsoft Edge and Office applications, such as Excel, Word, and Powerpoint, will be affected by this feature.

Improved Microsoft Edge

The Microsoft Internet browser will have fixes to make it more stable, but also new features. This way, he / she will be able to automatically fill in the online form fields with your data, surname, first name, address, telephone number, etc. Another interesting addition, the browser will cut the sound of a tab, without mute the others. Finally, it will also allow you to save books in EPUB format.

Focus Assistant

The upcoming update includes this new wizard that will manage the availability schedule to receive notifications. This tool determines the receipt of notifications according to three criteria: all, only priority and none. But it adds to this management a criterion of schedule and activity in progress. After the update, ended the notifications during the movies! And not to miss anything, the Focus Wizard will present a summary of the notifications while it was in sleep mode.

Deleting telemetry data

Coupled with the free Diagnostic Data Viewer application , a new tool will allow you to see all the information that is transmitted to Microsoft from your device. But above all, the application will erase all transmitted telemetry data.

Cortana is still improving

The Windows Assistant will be getting new features with the update. It will be able to participate in the management of the timeline, described above. But it will also have a list of applications that it can synchronize with other devices. Finally, among the other features provided by the Spring Creator Update that will arrive this spring, we can mention:

  • A complete makeover of the operating system is integrated with Fluent Design
  • Bluetooth connection is simplified for Surface Precision Mouse
  • HDR video stream management
  • Easy Bluetooth file transfer with Near Share
  • Ability to limit bandwidth when updating the OS
  • Emojis owe to a facelift

Microsoft is also taking the opportunity to enhance the security of Windows 10 and is actively preparing the end of passwords . The giant proposes for example Microsoft Authenticator available on Android and iOS via an application adding to the facial recognition or a PIN code. It will have to wait several weeks before landing the news announced by the giant in final version.
