Windows 10 update: Microsoft reveals first details of major redesign due later this year


The long-awaited unveiling on the Windows 10 Creators Update is just a few weeks away and it is expected to include several exciting additions and upgrades.

The unveiling, which is due sometime in April, will bring several media-friendly additions to the software, specifically 3D capabilities, gaming as well as security.

It is rumoured that although the Creator update has not happened yet, Microsoft are already planning their next update to Windows 10 which is codenamed Redstone 3, and this is expected to be available in the Autumn of this year.

Windows tracking site BuildFeed detected that Microsoft has now finished compiling Windows 10 Build 15141 – one of the first expected Redstone 3 versions.

This new addition has been spotted because of its usage of a previous software release branch used by the Windows 10 Creators Update when it was in development.


With this now ported over to a more public system ahead of its release, Redstone 3 has now assumed its status as the next big Microsoft work in progress.

Rumours regarding Redstone 3 have been around a while but it’s existence was only confirmed at the Microsoft Ignite Windows 10 event in Australia recently.

Redstone 3 is expected to include lots more updates, many of which are deemed to be overdue as the company looks to make its software available on as many devices as possible.

Codenamed ‘Project Neon’ the all new Windows 10 looks like it will bring with it several visual improvements, including boosted animations and blue to apps.

Although little is known at this stage, Microsoft are expected to release more information at the Microsoft Build conference in May.
