At the Surface launch event, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 would soon get the feature to mirror the whole Android phone. You will now be able to pick up what you were doing, even if it was on your Android or iOS phone, on your Windows 10 PC. The app eventually allows users to access their phone's content right from the Windows 10 computer itself.

Now you can use your PC as normal, and you will receive whatever cumulative updates that Microsoft delivers to this shipping version of Windows 10 going forward.

In their demo video, they show a user accessing the last 25 shots in the camera roll, as well as accessing text messages from the phone - however the intent is to be able to access any app on your phone.

Microsoft just released the Windows 10 October update, and with it comes the beginning of a new era of graphics rendering.

Microsoft Operating Systems Group is building an all-new streaming service designed for apps and video games, codenamed Arcadia.

Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 19H1 test build to Insider testers.

Personally, I'll be making an effort to use Timeline and the new Cloud Clipboard more often. The company also opened the doors for developers to request an experimental build of the API to get a head start with the new technology, and many signed up.

A blog post on the official DirectX Blog notes that the October 2018 update will have standardised support for DirectX Ray Tracing, enabling games to take advantage of the hardware on Nvidia's RTX cards for real-time ray tracing.

Microsoft have also made their Windows 10 Game Mode easier to use as well, which should hopefully result in fewer interruptions when you're mid-game.

For its Edge browser, Microsoft in the Windows 10 update has added an offline dictionary, grammar tools, and learning tools in its reading view, and Line Focus. The company says that the global will be rolled out via Windows Update in the coming weeks.

You'll know if this gremlin pertains to your machine if when you attempt to install the October 2018 Update, you get a "What needs your attention" notification, which warns that the Intel Display Audio driver causes stability problems and will be disabled.

According to Intel, the issue is with 6th Generation (codenamed Skylake) or newer processors, however, Microsoft hasn't specified which devices are being blocked from receiving the latest update. If you're dying to have it now, though, you can go into your PC's settings and have it check for updates, per the instructions from Microsoft here. If you want to snap a screenshot, all you have to do is press the Windows key + Shift + S, and a snipping toolbar will appear.
