You'll need to act FAST to DELAY blockbuster new upgrade

Microsoft says Dictation in Windows 10 has been improved, and it can quickly and accurately capture what the user is saying.

You can visit this official Microsoft web page to start the update of the Windows 10 PC with a click on the "update now" button.

The Windows Mixed Reality for SteamVR makes it easier for people to play and access virtual reality games from the Steam video game distribution service via their Windows-powered VR headsets.

"When you think about the release, there is a theme being pulled through", he told me. The Redmond tech giant has also released Windows 10 1803 ISO files, which are now available for download. It was actually supposed to be in the Fall Creators Update from October 2017, but it simply wasn't ready for a wider rollout then.

Timeline adds 30 days of rollback capability to your PC.It also works cross platform so you can pick up documents you started or edited on mobile using Microsoft Edge or Office 365 on your iOS or Android device.

The new update will also bring changes to Dictation feature on Windows 10.

Before you install any big OS update, it's a good idea to back up your data in case something goes sideways during the installation. Unfortunately, the feature is limited to supporting the Surface Precision Mouse for now. Your PC can do that after the update has been installed when you reconnect your peripherals. The Windows Help Viewer is no longer supported in Windows 10.

Why Alex Cora didn't pinch-hit for Sandy Leon in Red Sox' win
The Tampa Bay Rays had their eight game win streak end falling to the Boston Red Sox 4-3 in the finale of their three game set. It was a grueling two innings as he allowed six hits and two walks and was fortunate to get off as easy as he did.

You can visit this Microsoft documentation page yourself to see which processors are supported by Windows 10.

Focus Assist, which was previously named Quiet Hours, is a new feature that allows you put Windows 10 into a "Do Not Disturb" mode. You can enable the feature when necessary or set up for specific times when you want to particularly keep the constant notifications at bay, and revisit them later. While this isn't going to "wow" most people, it's surely useful, especially if your company has adopted Slack or a similar tool that's meant to make communications easier but mostly just leads to constant distractions.

That's what was reported earlier in the year, but Microsoft has made the wise choice to simplify the name this time round.

Microsoft said the new Mixed Reality update (Microsoft refers to both virtual and augmented reality as "mixed reality") allows for better motion controller feedback for users.

The update introduces the ability to mute tabs. In the background, the PC will be collecting all the updates and once the Focus Assist is disabled, it will give out a brief summary of what messages you received and from whom.

After waiting nearly half a year, Microsoft is finally starting to roll out the 5th installment of Windows-as-a-Service, i.e., the Windows 10 version 1803 (Build 17134).
