Windows update will bring 3-D, game tools and less clutter

There's even support for 360-degrees videos in the movies and TV app, and a new ebook section of the Windows Store.

The tool, the Windows 10 Update Assistant is a 6MB download and was already discovered by Microsoft watcher H0xx0d. It's also possible to open a new window, or a new private window directly from the Edge icon's jump list. And you can also set aside all those open tabs to reference later, bringing them back by selecting a "restore tabs" button. It is also more customisable than ever before. It is, after all, the Creators Update, so there had to be some artistic qualities to it, right?

Also known by the snappy name of "Windows 10 version 1703", the news was released today as the company also revealed that the Surface Book and Surface Studio would be launched into new markets. They often require a restart and can come at inopportune times - such as the start of an important meeting.

The Active hours options have been extended, too. And, if you have a major project that simply mustn't be interrupted, you can now pause updates entirely for up to seven days.

Once you've downloaded the ISO file, just mount the image in File Explorer and double click on setup.exe to begin the installation process. Microsoft also is making its privacy and telemetry settings clearer in the Creators Update release.

Pak min defends ex-army chief appointment as coalition head
Already, there have been reports of Pakistani involvement in the various Middle Eastern wars. PML-N's Talal Chaudhary said no decision would be taken without the parliament's consent.

When you have enabled Game Mode, you can apply it to any game. The biggest one added in Edge via the Creators Update is Aside Tabs, which is a new link bookmarking feature, but also built-in e-book reader, now supporting PDF and EPUB files. That's because there's a delay between when you see something happen in the game and when spectators see it happen on the stream. Until now it was still a basic drawing app you could use to make puerile sketches with an absolute minimum of fuss. With the Creators Update, Microsoft has made a few changes aimed at providing greater transparency. Was your computer damaged by the Windows 10 update?

The Creator's Update will be the first to feature an update scheduler, letting people pick a day and time when they want their system to update. New capabilities include controlling the volume of audio, and locking, restarting or shutting down your PC or laptop.

Continuum - Windows 10's ability to run a desktop PC-like environment on a large screen from a smartphone - could bring a new level of productivity for the phone.

For gamers, the Creators Update will introduce built-in broadcasting via Beam. The new Windows Defender Security Center is a single dashboard for controlling your different security options, viewing device health, and managing family safety options. That's according to a new patent filing recently released to the public.

A really fun and simple update lets you annotate photos and videos by simply writing on them using a stylus or finger.
