Windows 10

  • If your computer runs into Windows problems and automatic recovery attempts are unsuccessful, Windows 10 will now automatically remove the botched updates. In a new support document, Microsoft has now detailed an interesting functionality where Windows 10 will automatically remove the installed updates to fix the startup issues and other bugs preventing PC from booting. The support document was quietly published a couple of hours ago and for some reasons, Microsoft has also blocked the search engines from crawling or indexing the page. In the document, Microsoft explains that Windows may automatically install updates in order to keep your device secure and smooth. Due to various reasons, including software and driver compatibility issues, Windows Updates are vulnerable to mistakes and hardware errors. In some cases, Windows Update may fail to install.

  • Never mind running mobile apps on a PC — Microsoft wants you to see your phone’s particular apps on a PC. At the company’s Surface event, mobile general manager Shilpa Ranganathan previewed a Windows 10 feature that would mirror your phone’s entire screen on the desktop. You could see and reply to a Snapchat conversation without having to reach for the device on your desk. It’s not certain when this will be available (it’s not part of Windows 10’s October Update), but it’s likely to be Android-only. It’s certainly a practical addition if you’re tired of switching devices just to keep up with every social network you use. Engadget There are programs that do this already but its nice that Microsoft will offer native support.
  • During a session called ‘An Introduction to Microsoft Managed Desktop’ at its Ignite 2018 conference yesterday, Microsoft said that Windows 10 is now running on over 700 million active devices. If you follow Windows 10 news, this might not even seem like a major development. That’s because the firm’s communication around this has been wildly inconsistent. It started off when Windows and Devices chief Terry Myerson announced that he’s leaving Microsoft, and he wrote in a farewell letter that Windows 10 is installed on nearly 700 million active devices. That was almost six months ago. At the firm’s Build conference in May and at the Insider Dev Tour in July, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 is installed on over 700 million devices, only to retract those statements later on and say they were mistakes. But today after almost six months of “nearly 700 million”, Windows 10 is officially installed on over 700 million devices. Neowin So a math error

This can waste a lot of your time.
