  • Microsoft has always collected user data which the company has regularly suggested is used for fixing errors performance issues and to improve the apps and services it offers

That changes with the availability of Windows Mixed Reality headsets.

Between the release of Windows 10 Fall Creators Edition and the announcement of a new Surface Book, today's Microsoft news was firmly focused on the desktop.

As with previous major updates, the Fall Creators Update is being rolled out gradually to users, rather than pushed out to every PC at once. Windows 10 Fall Creators Update contains features that enable users to interact with 3D objects and virtual worlds using off-the-shelf PCs and a new generation of affordable headsets.

Microsoft's Windows 10 Update Assistant for the Fall Creators Update is now available, which means you can get the update using the tool right now. Fluent Design also appears to have been influenced by HoloLens, and it seems poised to prepare Windows for use across both traditional PCs and mixed reality headsets.

The Windows Mixed Reality Headsets are available today, each priced under $600 dollars here in Canada.

In the above command replace "PACKAGE-IDENTITY-NAME" for the package identify name labeled as "Install Pending" and repeat the step if you have more pending updates.

Microsoft will be hoping to avoid the controversies that have dogged updates of the past, where some customers have accused the company of "forcing" them to update to new versions of Windows, with many claiming their computers have crashed or been interrupted in the middle of a task as a result. "Windows 10 was designed as a service, whereby feature updates are required a couple times a year".

Windows 10 Mobile accounts for only 0.03 percent of the world's mobile OS market, according to the latest figures from the analyst firm IDC.

If Fall Creators Update is installed, your Version number will be 1709 and your Build number will be 16299.19 as shown below. The new update for WIndows 10 finally adds the high-requested OneDrive files on-demand feature that lets you access the data from the cloud without syncing the device to OneDrive.

You can find a full list of the changes coming in the Fall Creators Update in Microsoft's blog post about its release.

"One example of such software is the Windows operating system, which now has three versions under active support - Windows 7, 8 and 10", he said. You can also go to the Windows Update section in the Settings app to see if you're part of the first group to receive the update.

"With the Fall Creators Update, we are making Mixer even better-you can now launch and jump into a game stream faster than before". If you are, it will start to download immediately. If you are interested in getting the Creators Update using the Update Assistant, you can download it from this link - do keep in mind that the link will automatically start downloading the tool.
