  10. 10. Another feature that mobile users will find handy. The April 2018 Update introduced Timeline on PCs, making it easier to gain access to what you were working on. Now, this feature is available on your phone, meaning you can scroll back in time to pick up where you left off while working on files and browsing websites. It is also possible to share or remove activities from a specific day or hour.
  11. 11. Microsoft Edge
  12. 12. The latest version of Edge focuses on improving reading, but also pays due attention to the look and feel of the user interface. Microsoft also offers a bit more customization — reading PDFs in the browser is now a more pleasant experience, and there are several changes under the hood to improve the technology. For starters, Edge now comes with Microsoft Learning Tools baked in, and the browser also offers support for themes and an offline dictionary that serves up definitions of highlighted words. You also get access to Grammar Tools that separate words into syllables and highlights parts of speech to make it easier to understand. It is also possible to have a word read aloud if you want to hear the correct pronunciation or learn its meaning.

  14. 14. You’ll also find a new version of the learning tools for Microsoft Edge available for Books and Reading View, which now lets you choose from a variety of new page themes and add wider spacing to improve reading fluency, in the “Text options” tab. To make it easier to identify the parts of speech, in the “Grammar tools” tab, you can now change the color in which the parts of speech should be highlighted as well as enable a label right over it. Also, the new line focus option, in the “Reading preferences” tab, helps you to improve focus while reading an article by highlighting sets of one, three, or five lines.
  15. 15. Search
  16. 16. Gaming
  17. 17. DirectX Raytracing is now fully supported on the platform, meaning users no longer have to enable developer mode to see it in action. Raytracing is a new rendering technique that not only improves image quality but has all the potential to become the standard method for generating 3D worlds.
  18. 18. The Game Bar is now a dedicated app, making it easier to use while also bringing a new look and new audio controls so you can do more with your games with fewer interruptions.
  19. 19. Windows Mixed Reality
  20. 20. You can now stream audio to both the headset and the computer speakers simultaneously. In the Windows Mixed Reality experience, when using an immersive application pressing the Windows key or using the bloom gestures, Quick Actions allow users to easily Go Home, view the time, or launch Mixed Reality Capture tools (Photo, Video, and more). Also, you will find a new Flashlight feature, which adds the ability to peer into the physical world without the need to remove your headset and prevent fumbles.

  23. 23. Cloud Clipboard
