Win­dows 10 up­date boasts 3-D draw­ing, game streams

Austin American-Statesman - - BUSINESS - By Anick Jes­da­nun Win­dows

A ma­jor up­date to Mi­crosoft’s Win­dows 10 sys­tem will start reach­ing con­sumers and busi­nesses April 11, of­fer­ing 3-D draw­ing tools, game-broad­cast­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties and bet­ter ways to man­age your web brows­ing.

This “Cre­ators Up­date” also aims to make fu­ture up­dates less dis­rup­tive.

Mi­crosoft said Wed­nes­day that it will roll out the Cre­ators Up­date to some 400 mil­lion Win­dows 10 de­vices world­wide over time. Though there’s no set sched­ule, de­vices that came with Win­dows 10 in­stalled will likely get the up­date first. That will make it eas­ier for Mi­crosoft to work out kinks for older de­vices, which are po­ten­tially more prob­lem­atic.

Once you get it, here are five things to check out.
