Microsoft Suspends Windows April Update For Some Systems With Intel SSDs

Microsoft says the new feature will allow users to quickly access content on their PC without having to pick up their smartphone.

Also arriving in the preview build are some additional hints of Microsoft's Fluent Design System such as the acrylic title bar in Sets.

Microsoft released a new Insider Build of the upcoming Windows 10 version 1809 to the Insider Channel yesterday.

Microsoft unveiled its new cross-device content sharing app Your Phone during its developer conference this week, and it was one of the few new noteworthy consumer-facing highlights for the company. You will be able to now pin the items from the clipboard along with being able to directly paste from the clipboard history.

Your Phone wont be ready to be included in that update but it could feature in the next major update to Windows 10, codenamed Redstone 5, which is due later this year. Microsoft this time, is quite focused on making the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps adaptable to all kinds of input, whether touch screens or keyboard and mouse as presently the apps are designed more for touch inputs.

As I noted above today's build also includes a number of enhancements to the Sets window-management feature.

Secondly, Microsoft has not explained whether Alt-Tabbing between apps and browser tabs will work on a system-wide basis, or whether it will only allow for navigation between tabs that have been added to a particular set. Users can choose whether apps and websites open in a new window or a new tab, and they also can opt to mute a web tab in Sets, like they can do now in Edge. If you have the latest Fast Insiders build installed, you can enable the dark mode in Settings Personalization Colors.

After a ton of feedback, Microsoft states, a dark theme is finally making its way to Windows 10 and will initially be available on File Explorer, File Explorer context menu, and Common File Dialog menu.

Windows 10's default note-taking app, Notepad, is getting new search on Bing functionality. But it's not just Linux: Macintosh line endings (CR) have been added as well. This vulnerability only affects Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2, the bulletin said.

With Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17666, Microsoft is bringing the ability to name tile folders.

"We expect this vulnerability to become one of the most exploited in the near future, as it won't be long until exploit kit authors start abusing it in both drive-by via browser and spear-phishing via document campaigns".
