Microsoft will release the Fall Creators Update for the company's Windows 10 operating system on October 17th, 2017.
The update will introduce new features and improvements to Windows 10, and remove or deprecate some features as well.
We talked about the features that would likely be in the Fall Creators Update back in May 2017, and have a clearer picture now when it comes to those.
Microsoft postponed some features because they were not ready to be included in the coming feature update.
The company polls users about the features of the Fall Creators Update that they are most excited about, and I thought it would be a good idea to do the same here on Ghacks.
Without further ado, here are the new or improved features that Microsoft revealed in the poll:
I don't really see much on that list that gets me excited. Don't need anything that Microsoft tags with the "get creative" or "3D" tag for instance. I don't use Cortana, and don't pin websites or people to the taskbar.
This removes half the features from the list already. I don't use a pen on my desktop, and don't use touch either.
The features that I would pick, more because there is little left to choose from, are OneDrive Files On-Demand, Ransomware Protections, and maybe the currency converter in Calculator, mainly because it is available offline as well.
Now You: Which features are you or aren't you excited about?
