Microsoft Launcher gets a milestone 5.0 update with Windows Timeline support

Microsoft Launcher gets a milestone 5.0 update with Windows Timeline support

Starting with version 1809, the settings on this page have been updated to give you a new option to allow apps that have been blocked without having to completely disable the feature.

Forcing a big Windows update ahead of schedule isn't as complicated as it might sound, because Microsoft itself actually provides a user-friendly tool to so do, in the form of the Windows 10 Update Assistant. And, hey, maybe you'll learn something new that you can incorporate into your daily routine.

As such, Microsoft has now put a block on afflicted machines being offered the Windows 10 update, although users can push things through if they really want to.

Now for the October update, they have extended it for phones sof that you can see your PC timeline on your phone.

There are a number of incremental tweaks and new features for Windows 10, but the three probably main draws for this iteration of the operating system would be a phone-based expansion to the Timeline Feature, the new Cloud Clipboard, and the Your Phone app.

We recommend that you do not attempt to manually update to Windows 10, version 1809 using the Update Now button or the Media Creation Tool from the Microsoft Software Download Center. This will allow you to have instant access with a linked Android phone's photos and texts on your computer.

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. At this point in time, the Your Phone app only works on Android.

Not long after introducing Timeline to Windows 10, Microsoft is porting the feature to your Android phone as well.

The new clipboard experience allows you to access your clipboard history, pin items you commonly use, and copy content across devices. Now, as we already told you guys that the tech giant Microsoft has finally set an official date for its launch and it would be much closer than expected. With this, you can monitor and modify navigations, track state across navigations, monitor navigation errors, and run code before views are activated.

There's also a Reddit thread full of users complaining about the issue.

The Windows 10 October 2018 Update is available now via Windows Update to all Windows 10 users. This implementation further supports the CSS mask-image property with improved WebKit support, including webkitMask, webkitMaskComposite, webkitMaskImage, webkitMaskPosition, webkitMaskPositionX, webkitMaskPositionY, webkitMaskRepeat, webkitMaskSize, as well as more complete standards support, adding maskComposite, maskPosition, maskPositionX, mskPositionY, and maskRepeat.
