Windows 10 19H2

Microsoft’s 19H1 build, the 18342, is now available for slow ring Insiders as well. Do note that PCs with the language ZH-CN will not receive this update due to an issue that’s causing many common Chinese games to crash on launch.

What’s New in Build 18342:

 

Improving Gaming on Windows 10

With today’s new build (Build 18342), Microsoft has some fixes that Microsoft can’t wait to have folks try out: the game now runs correctly with parental controls enabled, and the install process is more stable (including a fix for the game being stuck in “Pending” instead of downloading).

  • If you have already tried State of Decay and everything worked: Microsoft would appreciate you uninstalling State of Decay and then trying the install again, to make sure everything still works.
  • If you have already tried State of Decay and something didn’t work: please try again and see if your issue has been addressed. If not, it would help Microsoft a lot if you let Microsoft know using the Feedback Hub in Windows (instructions here in this post). Even if you already sent feedback on the issue before, it’s very helpful to know that it’s still happening on a new version of Windows.
  • If you were not able to get a slot for State of Decay: Microsoft is opened up more slots now, so just go to the Xbox Insider hub and click Insider content to join. NOTE: Microsoft is still limiting availability as Microsoft rolls out, so Microsoft recommend joining right away. If you miss out this time, don’t worry, Microsoft will be adding more again soon!
  • If you are trying State of Decay for the first time: just do the following:
    1. Install the Xbox Insider Hub app on the PC you’ll be fighting on.
    2. Sign in to the Xbox Insider Hub with your Gamertag. If you don’t have a Gamertag, see instructions.
    3. Select Insider Content in the upper left.
    4. Scroll to the bottom and select the Windows Gaming program (in the System section).
    5. Join the program.
    6. Follow the instructions in the previous post, skipping any steps you’ve already completed above.

If you see any problems downloading or installing the game, or if important functionality like game saving isn’t working, please be sure to use the Feedback Hub to tell Microsoft.

Linux Files inside of File Explorer

Microsoft added the ability for users to access Linux files in a WSL distro from Windows. These files can be accessed through the command line, and also Windows apps, like File Explorer, VSCode, etc. can interact with these files. Access your files by navigating to \\wsl$\<distro_name>, or see a list of running distributions by navigating to \\wsl$. You can learn more about this here.

Microsoft is rolling out Build 18312 to Fast Ring Insiders. This builds includes several new features to check out, including improvements to the “Reset this PC” UI and the subsystem for Linux Command Line Tool.

What’s New in Build 18312

  • Reserving disk space to keep Windows 10 up to date: In 19H1, we’re making a few changes to how Windows 10 manages disk space. Through reserved storage, some disk space will be set aside to be used by updates, apps, temporary files, and system caches. Our goal is to improve the day-to-day function of your PC by ensuring critical OS functions always have access to disk space. With reserved storage, updates, apps, temporary files, and caches are less likely to take away from valuable free space and should continue to operate as expected. Reserved storage will be introduced automatically on PCs that come with 19H1 pre-installed or on PCs where 19H1 was clean installed.
  • FLS Slot Limit Increase: As PCs get more powerful, musicians have created increasingly complex projects with more tracks, more instruments, and deeper effects chains. As a result, some of those musicians were running up against an FLS (Fiber Local Storage) slot allocation ceiling that prevented them from loading into their DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations) as many unique plugins as they’d like. This build greatly raises that per-process FLS slot allocation ceiling, allowing loading potentially thousands of unique plugins. Beyond musicians, this change will positively impact any application that dynamically loads hundreds or thousands of unique DLLs that have statically-linked Visual C++ runtimes, or otherwise allocates FLS slots.
  • Reset this PC UI Improvements: We added new UI for Reset this PC as part of Settings > Update & Security > Recovery. The new UI provides a more consistent experience across devices with different configurations and requires fewer clicks to complete.
  • Windows Subsystem for Linux Command Line Tool Improvements:
    • Consolidated command line options – The wsl command line tool now includes options to manage your WSL distros that are included in the wslconfig command line tool. We intend to only update the wsl tool with the latest management options moving forward.
    • Import a distro for easy sideloading including to non-system drives – Use the “–import” option to imports a tar file as a new distribution. You can specify the distribution registry to the location of your choice including non-system drives.
    • Export your WSL distribution for simpler environment management – Use the “—export” option to export a distribution to a tar file. Your distro will export to your default downloads location.

 

Fast Ring Insiders can update their PC now to install this build. To check out other General changes, improvements, and fixes, click here.

One of the bug limitations of Windows 10 was that apps for Windows on ARM devices had to be compiled separately. Finally, Microsoft is allowing developers to recompile existing win32 or Universal Windows Apps to run natively on Windows 10 on ARM hardware. So hopefully, 64-bit app performance should get a lot better.

Microsoft is relying on developers to use its tools to improve its Windows in ARM efforts. We have seen Microsoft in a similar situation when it created create Universal Windows Apps for Windows 8, Windows 10, and Windows Phone apps for a variety of new touch-based hardware. It’s more like a  push from Microsoft to get the work going for Windows on ARM devices.

Windows on ARM has made a lot of progress, but performance and app compatibility still remains the issue. Intel is still struggling with its 10nm processors. Apple’s A12 Bionic chip has bridged the gap and the benchmarks show the competitiveness. ARM is also promising laptop-level performance from its Cortex-A76 chip design in 2019. The chip design company has been claiming that ARM processors next year will compete with Intel’s Kaby Lake range on laptops.

SoC like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 is powering modern ARM notebooks like Lenovo’s Yoga C630 and Samsung’s Galaxy Book 2. Both have a phenomenal battery life. If things go this way, ARM is definitely the future and Intel processor might cease to exist in the coming years,

What do you think about Windows on ARM?

Snapchat is launching its first Mac and Windows software that takes over your webcam and brings its augmented reality effects to other video streaming and calling services. Snap Camera can be selected as a camera output in OBS Skype, YouTube, Google Hangouts, Skype, Zoom and more, plus browser-based apps like Facebook Live so you can browse through Snapchat’s Lens Explorer to try on AR face filters. And through its easily equipped new Twitch extension, streamers can trigger different masks with hotkeys.

You can download the Mac and Windows versions of Snap Camera now. Users can use Lens Explorer to preview effects and see who made them, Star their favorites for easy access and access a tab of your recently used Lenses.

Snap Camera on desktop allows for a variety of use cases. For example, users can apply a filter when they’re streaming themselves playing Fortnite or when they’re in a video calling with someone on Skype.

In order to use the lenses on desktop, users have to install Snap Camera and then use it as the camera output in third-party apps like Twitch. The app will allow them to access countless Snap lenses created by the company itself and the community using the Lens Studio tool. Lenses can be searched for using keywords as well.

“We’re trying to find new distribution channels for those creators to surface their work. We think this a very unique opportunity, bringing Snapchat AR experiences to the desktop,” said Pilipski.

A full guide to using the new Snap Camera lenses is available online. Minimum system requirements include a PC or Mac with an Intel Core i3 processor clocked at least 2.5 GHz, or an AMD Phenom II clocked at 2.6Ghz, 4GB of RAM, and a screen resolution of 1,280 x 768 or higher.

Considering that Snapchat has been struggling lately, and users have been opening the app less frequently, the new app could expand its base. As noted in August, 3 million people quit the platform, primarily due to its controversial redesign.

When you are running a business, you want to have everything running smoothly without any delays or problems with production. One way that you can achieve this is to use a computer system that will be reliable and adaptable to your needs. For many companies, they have been using an operating system like Windows for many years. Here are some of the benefits to using this popular OS.

Safe and Secure

Windows 10, which is the company’s latest operating system, has been found to be the most secure that the company has produced. The previous OS has had many issues with security, mainly because of loopholes in the software that hackers were able to exploit. However, with Windows 10, the company has addressed these issues and even the worlds largest global ransomware attack WannaCry didn’t affect the OS. For this reason, many companies are starting to upgrade their previous windows versions to the new Windows 10. Companies have found that apart from the security features, they can also add their own layers of security without any issues.

Compatibility with Software

With software that you are using from other companies, there is always the risk that it won’t be compatible with your computer’s software. It can prove costly for your company, especially if you have to make changes to your systems to accommodate this new software. However, many companies use Windows because software developers create compatible software for it. In many cases, you can simply add the software to your existing systems without any adaptions or modifications. It means that you can use an affordable pcb design software or your company and it will work just as well as any other.

Connectivity

Creators of operating systems want you to use theirs over anyone else’s, which is why they try to incorporate connectivity with other devices and software. Although older versions of Windows might not have been as successful at this as other operating systems, the newer versions have been much improved. With a lighter but still useful Windows version for mobile phones and tablets along with Windows software available as apps, it has made using the OS across devices easier. It also enables workers to share documents and collaborate easily, even when they are in different locations.

Ease of Use

Although people use their mobile phones and tablets a lot, many also have access to a laptop or PC at home. These are typically running Mac OS by Apple or Windows, though the majority of them are sold with Windows OS as standard. That means your employees will be used to using this software and know how it operates. It can be a big advantage in business because you won’t need to train your staff to use it except for any additional business components.

Retraining staff to use new systems is not only expensive but also costly in time and resources. That is why it is best to use an operating system that can be tailored to your needs and is universally known.

Windows 95

Long ago, Microsoft used to rule the market with its Windows lineup. And, Windows 95 used to a super hit OS in its time. After Windows 3.1, the first windows version with a GUI, although based on a command line running behind, Windows 95 took over the market. But now you will not get a new PC with this Windows version since it got extinct with time.

You may get a hands-on the ISO file and boot it into a VMWare/VirtualBox, but no fresh installed PC with the same OS. Yes, you can clean install on your system, but it will not work as expected. Back in those days, hardware demand was very less than today. Even you will not get 64-Bit ISO for the Windows.

Windows 95 Windows Folder

But some crazy guy from Git managed to virtualize the OS and make an EXE out of the OS.  Yes, it’s now possible to run Windows 95 on your Windows 10 PC without even dual booting it.

You can download the app from here.

About Windows 95

It is codename Chicago. It is the first OS from Microsoft to bring true GUI based OS. 95 also features what we call the Start Button, Taskbar etc. It also features plug n play back in those days.  The OS remained in the market for three years after which it was succeeded by Windows 98.

• Mixed Reality: Today we are excited to announce that we are adding the ability to peer into your physical environment through Flashlight – without removing your headset! With the latest Windows Insider Program build, you can open a portal into your real world at any time via the Start menu, a button shortcut, or a voice command. This opens a low-latency pass-through camera feed connected to your controller. It’s comfortable, intuitive, and keeps you immersed.

• Microsoft Edge: The Microsoft Edge team introduced new Group Policies and MDM settings for IT administrators to manage Microsoft Edge. The new policies include enabling/disabling full-screen mode, printing, favorites bar, and saving history; prevent certificate error overrides; configuring the Home button and startup options; setting the New Tab page and Home button URL and managing extensions.

• Microsoft Edge: Retired XSS Filter: We are retiring the XSS filter in Microsoft Edge beginning in today’s build. Our customers remain protected thanks to modern standards like Content Security Policy, which provide more powerful, performant, and secure mechanisms to protect against content injection attacks, with high compatibility across modern browsers.

• Unicode 11 comes with 157 new emoji – as of today they’re now available for Insiders to try in the build. Including superheroes, redheads, a softball, a pirate flag and a llama all made the cut. You can access them using the Emoji Panel (WIN+.) or the touch keyboard.

• Leap Second Support– Windows will now support these occasional 1-second adjustments in a traceable and UTC-compliant manner. What’s a leap second? As the earth’s rotation slows, UTC (an atomic timescale) diverges from mean solar time or astronomical time. Once UTC has diverged by at most .9 seconds, a Leap Second is inserted to keep UTC in-sync with mean solar time. Since the practice of inserting leap seconds began in 1972, a leap second has typically occurred every 18 months.

• Precision Time Protocol– For the highest accuracy environments, you can now improve your time accuracy by leveraging a new time protocol that delivers far more accurate time samples to the endpoint (Windows Server 2019 or Windows 10, host or virtual machine).

• Software Timestamping– You can now further improve your network time accuracy by eliminating the software delay introduced by the Windows networking stack.

We have introduced a simplified assigned access configuration page in Settings that allows device administrators to easily set up their PC as a kiosk or digital sign. This new page provides a wizard experience that walks you through the kiosk setup flow including creating a kiosk account that will automatically sign in on device start.

We are very excited to announce that Microsoft Edge now works with assigned access which allows IT administrators to create a tailored browsing experience designed for kiosk devices.

Have you ever had to stop what you were doing, or wait for your computer to boot up because the device updated at the wrong time? We heard you, and to alleviate this pain, if you have an update pending we’ve updated our reboot logic to use a new system that is more adaptive and proactive. We trained a predictive model that can accurately predict when the right time to restart the device is. Meaning, that we will not only check if you are currently using your device before we restart, but we will also try to predict if you had just left the device to grab a cup of coffee and return shortly after.

In RS5, we’re making it easier to access the Game bar. In this flight, you can now discover Game bar from the Start menu or bring up Game bar by using the Win + G shortcut at any time.

As always, you can check out the full changelog at the Windows Blog, including a list of known issues and more!

Microsoft pushed out another update for Windows Insider and this time, the company is resetting Skip Ahead’. That means if you have opted for Skip Ahead Builds while being an Insider, you’d be automatically put back into the Fast ring.

What’s new in Build 17713

Microsoft Edge Improvements

• Per-site media autoplay controls: You can now control autoplay permissions on a per-site basis under the “Website permission” section of the Website Identification pane – just click the information icon or lock icon on the left side of the address bar and click “manage permissions” to get started.

• Lookup definitions for words in Reading View, Books, and PDFs: We’ve added a new dictionary function, so you can look up definitions for key words when reading a page or document. Simply select a single word to see the definition appear above your selection.

• You can choose to have a word read aloud to you to hear the correct pronunciation or expand more details from the definition. You can toggle whether definitions appear and which types of content they work in under the “General” tab of the Microsoft Edge settings menu.

Microsoft Edge PDF Reader Improvements

• Improved toolbar options: The toolbar available on a PDF document opened in Microsoft Edge will now show text descriptions for the icons to make them easily understandable. by the users. New options like “Add notes” are now available in the toolbar so that these tools are handy when you need them.

• Pin/unpin PDF toolbar: The toolbar can now be pinned at the top of the document, making all the PDF tools easily accessible if you need them. You can also unpin the toolbar for an immersive reading experience. If the toolbar is unpinned, it will hide itself – just hover over the top area to bring it back.

• Rendering improvements: We’ve included a bunch of rendering performance fixes with this build. Now you will see less and less of the white pages when you navigate through PDF files in Microsoft Edge. All these things should help when using  a  word to pdf converter.

 

• With Build 17666, we introduced extended line ending support for Notepad. We’re excited to share that today’s build has a few more surprises in store based on what you’ve been telling us!
• Wrap-around find/replace: We’ve made significant improvement to the find/replace experience in Notepad. We added the option to do wrap-around find/replace to the find dialog and Notepad will now remember previously entered values and the state of checkboxes and automatically populate them the next time you open the find dialog. Additionally, when you have text selected and open the find dialog we will automatically populate the search field with the selected text.

• Text zooming: We’ve added options to make it quick and easy to zoom text in Notepad. There is a new menu option under View > Zoom to change the zoom level and we display the current zoom level in the status bar. You can also use Ctrl + Plus, Ctrl + Minus and Ctrl + MouseWheel to zoom in and out and use Ctrl + 0 to restore the zoom level to the default.

• Line numbers with word-wrap: A long outstanding request has been to add the ability to display line and column numbers when word-wrap is enabled. This is now possible in Notepad and we’ve made the status bar visible by default. You can still turn the status bar off in the View menu.

Other Improvements:

• We’ve improved the performance when opening large files in Notepad.
• Notepad now supports Ctrl + Backspace to delete the previous word.
• Arrow keys now correctly unselect text first and then move the cursor.
• When saving a file in Notepad, the line and column number no longer reset to 1.
• Notepad now correctly displays lines that don’t fit entirely on the screen.

Uber stopped development of its Windows Phone app when Microsoft stopped supporting it, but now it’s evident even UWP desktop and mobile app was shut down by the change.
