REFRESH YOU R PC
Discover the amazing new features in the Windows 10 Creators Update, and why you should be making the most of them
When Windows 10 launched in July 2015, it was met with acclaim – and also a fair amount of relief – because it was a marked improvement over its predecessor, Windows 8. However, it still wasn’t a perfect operating system, and Microsoft appears to have acknowledged this by releasing two major updates for it: The first, the Anniversary Update, hit our PCs last year, and now the Creators Update is currently rolling out to PCs around the world as you read this.
Windows updates are rarely worth getting excited about, but the number of tweaks, fixes, and new features that Microsoft has promised with this release makes it worth downloading. As the name suggests, Microsoft has focused on bolstering the creative aspects of Windows 10. However, if you have less creative juice flowing through you than a heap of rocks does, the good news is that Microsoft has a rather liberal interpretation of what it means to be a ‘Creator’.
So, it’s not just people who like to put stylus to Surface and create digital art – it also applies to people who play games and like to stream and share their gameplay with friends and strangers across the Internet. Of course, there is also the usual array of less glamorus (and arguably more essential) security and usability tweaks to make Windows 10 an all-around better piece of software to use. In this article, we’re looking at how you can download and install the Creators Update, why you would want to, what cool new features you’ll be getting, and how to use them.
Windows 10 still isn’t perfect, but with major free updates such as the Creators Update – and the Fall Creators Update coming later this autumn – it shows that Microsoft is committed to evolving and improving its operating system at every turn, and that is something worth celebrating.
