Latest Insider update brings several new features to Microsoft Edge

Пятница, 12 Янв, 2018

The software giant started rolling out the Fall Creators Update on October 17 last year and it is the fastest Windows 10 release to reach 100 million devices. This is a good thing, as it means Windows 10 releases are getting more stable as time progresses, and more users are getting the latest version of Windows 10 quicker.

Microsoft appears to be picking up the pace when it comes to releasing new versions of Windows 10 to the public. Full availability is the final phase of our rollout process.

Revised media with the latest security- and non-security updates included in 1709 will be made available to administrators through Windows Update (WU), Windows Update for Business (WUfB), Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and the Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC) the week of Jan. 22, Cable added. "We build the latest security technology deep into the Windows OS to provide defense-in-depth features that prevent evolving malware and other vulnerabilities from impacting your device", Cable noted. To view list of available credentials for a site, click on the username field and it would populate all saved credentials for the website. While announcing the update, Terry Myerson, Microsoft's Executive Vice President for Windows and Devices, had said that the free update will also include a new photo app and many tweaks to the overall design and usability of Windows 10. Now, in addition to refreshing your library or pinning books to your Start menu, you can see recommendations for new books (when your library is empty) or filter expired rentals from the current library view. Another major feature in this release is the auto filling of card information in websites. Because these vulnerabilities start at the processor level, however, having the latest Windows operating system (OS) updates is not sufficient to be fully protected; you will also need to install related firmware updates from your device manufacturer. To enable automatic updates, go to Windows Update Advanced options Choose how updates are installed to make sure they are turned on for you.

Users will be prompted to save the card information for future use and you will no longer be required to fill all the details again. If you're running the Anniversary Update (version 1607) or Creators Update (version 1703), we'll send you a reminder that the feature update is ready to install. You'll now find the different Hub sections listed with the full name visible in the Navigation view to the left of the content. This view can be collapsed to show icons only if you prefer to save space.

Find the full change log below. Windows Update should pick up the Fall Creators Update automatically. On supported books, you can now hear the book read aloud with custom narration, with the publisher's chosen style applied to the highlight as the book is read. You may still choose to always show the favorites bar if you wish, via a context menu on the favorites bar "Show bar", or via settings "Show the favorites bar".

Variable Fonts: Microsoft Edge now supports CSS extensions for OpenType Font Variations, which allows single "variable" font files to behave like multiple fonts, with a range of weight, width, or other attributes.
