The 7 Key Features of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

Windows is one of the most popular desktop operating systems in the world. And yes, we also know that it comes in a mobile version, but that one is not even on the radar at the moment (and honestly, it never was). Well, as you may well be aware of already, the current version that is available for installing on your PC is Windows 10.

And it’s getting a Fall Creators Update soon. In fact, as the name implies, the update comes this fall, more specifically in September. So here are the seven key features of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update that you need to know about right now.

  1. Better file management on OneDrive

Of course, OneDrive is an old, tried and tested feature on Windows. But its functionality will definitely improve with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. But how exactly? Well, the innovative new addition is called OneDrive Files On-Demand, and it allows you to set up OneDrive in such a way that its activity is smoother than ever. Thus, OneDrive won’t sync files forcibly anymore, and you also won’t be required to open up a browser to access online files when the update comes into effect.

  1. Ransomware protection

Unfortunately, ransomware attacks are some of the most frequent and malicious cyberattacks that we’re faced with nowadays. And as you know, Windows 10 comes with its own antivirus, the Windows Defender. With the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, the Windows Defender will be better equipped to keep malware at bay.

  1. Exploit protection in EMET style

Do you remember EMET? If not, the initials stand for Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit, and it’s something that Windows used to have. Well, a form of it will be back with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

  1. Virtual machine protection for Edge

Microsoft Edge is the best browser that the company has ever made, but there’s also little to compare it to, so take this with a grain of salt. The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will bring virtual machine protection to it, so that’s certainly a step forward for the future. This will contain malware trying to go through Edge and onto your computer.

  1. One-click communication

Windows has generally not been one to partake in social messaging, so it left that up to a lot of third party apps. But with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, this will change. You will now have a My People app that allows you to add contacts and communicate with them, which is just awesome in our opinion.

  1. No more blurry desktop apps

It’s 2017, so blurry desktop apps need to go. The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will make sure that is the case once the update comes in September. And it will manage this by always maintaining system uptime. So all you need to do as a user is to shut down the app and then relaunch it. Then, the crisper rendering of the app will come into effect. Yes, it’s that simple, so enjoy this new update once it comes.

  1. Power throttling for apps running in the background

This particular feature doesn’t sound so hot, but we assure you that it makes all the difference. It will extend the battery life of your laptop and mobile devices that run Windows 10, provided you install the Fall Creators update. With the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, the system usage level will be throttled, so if you’re interacting with some else, Windows will recognize that and prioritize it.
