What’s next for Windows 10, we hear you asking. The answer, as we found out today, is another major new update Microsoft is calling the Creators Update. It’s free, it’s packed full of features, and it’s landing on your PC in “early 2017”. Read on to find out all the details.


Microsoft held a press event in New York City earlier today (October 26th). And the first order of business was the next iteration of Windows 10. Microsoft calls it the Creators Update, and it’s an update packed with features designed to help users create, share, and play.

We will undoubtedly delve deeper into the features being added to Windows 10 with the Creators Update in future articles, but for now, here’s a quick snapshot of what you can expect to see when the update drops in early 2017:

Don’t Forget Us Oldies!

The Creators Update is primarily aimed at younger users under 30, who, Microsoft claims, value creativity more than previous generations. It’s clear to see 3D plays a critical role in Microsoft’s plans too, with most of the new features built around that central theme.

We won’t really know how these features perform, and how well they’re integrated into Windows 10 The Latest Windows 10 Version Won't Be the Last One What is the latest Windows 10 version?

    I don't care about any of these things. None of them sit at the core of the OS. What I'd like is better control of updates, both from a user and system administration perspective (e.g. for dumping those 10GB Windows.Old folders on my clients with 80GB SSDs every few months). I would also really appreciate it if Microsoft would stop shuffling settings in its user interfaces and if it would stop uninstalling common user applications like Spybot Search and Destroy during major updates.

    I'd also like to see a return of a user-level Profile Migration tool. Why did we lose Easy Transfer, exactly?

    Any one of these things is more valuable than the collective worth of everything in this proposed update.

    fancy new features are all well and good but not when you abandon such basics as USB sticks being plug and play.
    Microsoft marketing would benefit by looking at unsolved issues as well as inventing new problems.

    As a professional artist I can't afford this thing.
