We are excited to announce that today; the Windows 10 Creators Update has started rolling out to Windows 10 customers around the world as a free update.
Creativity is an essential human trait that we believe everyone is a creator at heart. Windows 10 is built to empower the creator in all of us. And, no matter whom you are. We’ve got a special episode of This Week on Windows just for you to show you some of the great new features coming in the Creators Update. New innovations in the Windows 10 Creators Update include built-in game broadcasting, 3D in Windows 10, new tab management features and more in Microsoft Edge, and enhanced security features such as a new Microsoft privacy dashboard.
We have few different ways to get creators update. The update will be delivered to you when it’s ready if you already have a Windows 10 OS and have automatic updates enabled. Visit this blog post to learn how to get the Creators Update, if you are an advanced user and would like to get the update manually. Another great way to take advantage of the Creators Update is to purchase a new Windows 10 PC from Surface or our partners. We’ve got some great offers on Windows 10 PCs from Microsoft Store – you can save up to 33% on select PCs, including Dell Inspiron 13, Dell Inspiron 15, ASUS ZenBook Flip and HP Pavilion x360 at Microsoft Store and microsoftstore.com in the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico through April 17.
The Windows 10 Creators Update brings better tab management for its Edge browser by introducing tab previews – a nifty feature that removes the need to go through all tabs to find the one you’re looking for. You can even ‘set aside’ tabs for later use to not clutter your browser with too many open tabs, and have a dedicated space to keep important tabs and look at them only when the need be.
It also introduces the new Night Light feature that’s similar to f.lux. This means that when it gets dark, the PC’s display will gradually shift colors to ease the strain on your eye. The Windows 10 Creators Update has also introduced improvements to Windows Ink as well.
Cortana introduces a new feature called ‘Suggested Reminders’ that enables it to suggest reminders based on the promises you made in email (this feature is supported for Outlook and Office 365 accounts only for now). Another feature called ‘Pick up Where I Left Off’ lets Cortana notify you of your most recent documents and Edge browser history from a previous work session.
Paint 3D app
Furthermore, the Windows 10 Creators Update will enable anyone to create, share, and experience in 3D and mixed reality. With the new Paint 3D app in the Creators Update, Microsoft is enabling users to create 3D objects from scratch, easily changing colors, stamping textures, or turning a 2D picture into a 3D work of art.
Broadcast live using Beam
The Windows 10 Creators Update brings built-in game broadcasting that lets you stream your game play using the Game Bar. Just hit Windows + G, click Broadcast, and start streaming on Beam-all without the need for additional logins.
Microsoft likes to call it ‘mini view’ and it lets you keep an ever-present small window on top of what you’re doing. This means you can do things like binge-watch your favorite show, carry on a Skype conversation or control your music, regardless of what else you’re working on.
The Creators Update will also include a new Game Mode which essentially looks to priorities’ gaming when allocating your PC’s resources, to keep things like Google Chrome or Windows Update from getting in the way.
More small but important tweaks will be unraveled by early users as Windows 10 Creators Update starts running on more and more PCs worldwide. Let us know if you’ve received your Windows 10 Creators Update in the comments below.
