Windows 10 Fall Creators Update reaches final rollout phase

Information Security is a Priority at AMD

Microsoft has pushed out a new preview build of Windows 10 to fast ring testers containing quite a number of changes, including work on the operating system's do-not-disturb feature, and further tinkering with the Edge browser.

One new test-build feature that sounds intriguing to me is adding links to Documents and Pictures folders in the Start menu by default.

The update comes along with the Windows 10 build 17074 on the Fast ring.

Microsoft also improved the About settings page.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update has reached full availability, meaning all compatible devices should now be upgraded or have an upgrade available to the latest version of Windows.

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 January 22, Cable added.

The most likely explanation for the new emphasis is that Microsoft is pushing customers to pick up the upgrade pace because enterprises have been so slow that the company has been forced to extend support timelines beyond their stated 18-month spans.

We're thrilled to be offering the Fall Creators Update to all our customers, and we expect commercial customers to have the same level of confidence based on quality from their own broad deployments. The update is downloaded and installed automatically on the machine then.

Now You: which version of Windows do you run?

Microsoft plans to release the next feature update for Windows 10, Windows 10 version 1803, around March/April of 2018. Lastly, ensuring your antivirus products are up-to-date (for example, Windows Defender is available in-box for free and updates automatically) and that you are backing up critical files to the cloud remain best practices. 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. Make sure you apply the upgrade when you won't be needing to use your device for a short time. When a user chooses to never save password option, when prompted, for a particular site, the pop up notification to save passwords will never be prompted the next time you visit the site again. If you haven't yet updated, simply click the Update Now button on the Software Download Site to manually update your device.
