Microsoft launches Windows 10 October 2018 Update

Select the Upgrade this PC now option

For Microsoft, browser updates are tied to OS updates, meaning the Windows 10 October 2018 update also brings a new version of the Edge engine, EdgeHTML 18, to the masses, with new features and enhancements. But there are also a number of features in the 1809 update of potential interest to IT pros, as well.

Also on the gaming front, the October Update is the official launching point for the DirectX Ray Tracing API or DXR. Larger Windows updates seem to have settled into a bi-annual rhythm. You'll get Glance, News, and Timeline, with the Glance tab acting as a cleaned up version of the old Microsoft Launcher interface, the News tab as a cleaned up, customizable news feed, and Timeline working to keep your aforementioned Windows 10 stuff in sync with your phone.

You can set your "Active hours" so that Windows won't automatically restart your machine, which is part of the install process, when you are using it.

If you opt to wait for the update to hit your PC, Microsoft will download the update to your device and notify you it's ready to be installed.

On the management front, Microsoft is continuing to beef up Wndows Autopilot for automatic device provisioning, adding a new self-deploying mode, plus an option for shared devices, kiosks and digital sinage. As always, back up any important data you have prior to this update. Desktop App Assure - a new service for Windows 10 Enterprise and Education users - will help fast track app-compatibility resolution for those migrating to Windows 10. With the new app, you can access photos and text messages on your Android phone at any time, with the ability to drag and drop photos from your phone and copy and paste text from your messages. It's not exactly going to be a great experience for iOS.

This is actually a pretty cool productivity feature on the new Windows 10 update. The new feature will let you jump from your PC's edge browser to the scroll through the same content on your phone and vice versa and also works with documents.

This is a nice little addition that gives you more control over what's using up your Windows 10 laptop's battery life. You're now able to see your clipboard history - useful if you're copying and pasting several things. Thankfully, we have a guide that can show you how to use the free tools built into the operating system to delete junk files. Clever stuff. You can change settings for this in Settings System Clipboard.

Starting easily of Access, the October 2018 update brings improvements to customising text sizes, Magnifier and custom DPI scaling.

In the Windows Security Settings page, you'll notice a new "Security providers" section that allows you to see a list of all the security software running on your computer, including antivirus, firewall, and web protection. The. menu has been redesigned.
