Windows 10 setup now supports voice commands, thanks to Cortana

Windows 10 setup now supports voice commands, thanks to Cortana

For users of Microsoft Windows Vista, Exchange Server 2007, Office Communicator Phone Edition, Office InterConnect 2007 and several other smaller products, April 11 is the day Microsoft bids goodbye to any further commitment to update and support these products. The Insider spin-off was created to entice more corporate customers into test driving the operating system, and reporting bugs in the enterprise-specific features that have gotten short shrift from the program's hobbyist- and enthusiast-heavy participants.

Note: This tip is derived from the Windows 10 Field Guide, which is now being updated for the Windows 10 Creators Update. Microsoft said in a blog post that it's focused on improving OneCore-the foundation upon which Windows 10, Windows 10 IoT, Windows Server, and the operating systems for the Xbox One and HoloLens are built-than adding new features or squashing bugs. This will grab all of your open tabs and, well, put them aside, saving them out of the way for you. Given Microsoft's growing emphasis on biometric security with its Windows Hello platform, it may eventually be possible to use Cortana for user authentication as its voice biometrics technology continues to advance. Installing Windows could be a little less intimidating to the less technically savvy. The ACL on the registry key incorrectly denies access to the user and you can delete the following registry key to get out of this state: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AdvertisingInfo.

Creators Update will roll out starting on Tuesday. You will need to provide special permission to activate Cortana, much like when setting up Windows 10 desktop on PCs. Both upgrades ended successfully, but it did cause Microsoft Edge to lose passwords and personalization options on one of them.

Cable Operators and Telecoms Score Victory in House Vote on Privacy Rules
The bill passed in a 215-205 vote today with Republicans overwhelmingly voting in favor of repealing the broadband privacy rules. Your online personal information could be more at risk than ever. "Just last week, I bought underwear on the internet", he said.

Earlier this week, Microsoft released the first Windows 10 Redstone 3 build to the insider in the fast ring. The good news is that Dona Sarkar's team still found the time to release the first ever Redstone 3 build.

Certain hardware configurations may cause the broadcast live review window in the Game bar to flash Green while you are Broadcasting. We're also reasonably sure that Windows 10 Redstone 3 will include an overhaul of how Windows 10 looks.
