The Windows Creators Update has finally gone live.
Microsoft has started rolling out its huge Windows 10 update to users around the world.
So far the update has been as promised and smoother than the heavily criticised launch of Windows 10 back in 2015.
Back then, the update was described as being “forced” upon users – even crashing some older PCs. Such was the fallout, several users pursued legal cases claiming that their businesses had been affected.
Microsoft are keen to keep users satisfied and have updated their policy for the Creators Update. This will give users “more control” over when updates are installed, including options for scheduling the update when the device is not in use.
The upgrade is of course free and all Windows 10 users will receive a notification in the forthcoming days alerting them that the update is available.
Microsoft’s Yusuf Mehdi said: “We designed Windows 10 to empower the creator in all of us.
“To us, that means that everyone has the power to dream big, whether that involves starting a company, developing a lesson plan, inventing a product, developing or broadcasting games, or imagining a whole new world in Minecraft or mixed reality.
“And we want Windows to be the place you love to create and play, with the tools to help you make your mark on the world.”
One impressive feature of the Creators Update is the new “Night Light” feature designed to reduce the amount of blue lighted emitted, something that is said to have an adverse effect on sleep patterns.
Microsoft Edge which replaced Internet Explorer, is also being improved with a new tab management system, while Microsoft is also improving security through its Defender Security Centre, which will offer a new “single dashboard” from which users can control all their computer security options.
