Windows 10: what's new?

This refresh actually follows the Creators Update which started rolling out last month. The update highlights new and improved features. One of which is Timeline, a display of what one is doing and when. Another one is about Cortana, which now understands if you are working on different machines like desktop, laptop and phone, giving users the option to proceed or continue where they stopped. Other tweaks include OneDrive, for on time file access, and Microsoft Clipboard, that allows to copy content on one device and paste it on another the same way Apple’s universal clipboard does. Aside from the said feature, there is a slight change with the user interface, which will now be the same across all devices. According to Terry Myerson, thanks to Microsoft’s Fluent Design System all these new features will be available later on this year.
