Users can now buy a game once and play it on both the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.

As has been rumored for the past few weeks, Microsoft will begin rolling out to customers worldwide the Windows 10 Creators Update, a k a 1703 (as in March 2017) starting April 11.

The Creators Update will bring a series of new and interesting features to the table. When you're ready to return to trip planning, hit an adjacent icon to restore those tabs you've set aside. As the name suggests, the focus is on creative tasks, and that's a big step up from the Anniversary Update.

Computer displays emit blue light, which can keep you awake at night. You can schedule the hours when the night light feature kicks in.

The highlight of Creators Update is its revamped gaming experience. One of these is the new "game mode", which concentrates system resources on your game and shuts down non-essential processes in order to help bump up the average framerate.

No, the Windows 10 Creators Update won't be almost that fast.

An all new "Game Mode" will also make it easier for users to tweak their hardware for the ultimate gaming performance. You have to remember that Microsoft also delayed the MyPeople experience in Windows 10, a feature that was probably much more appealing for consumers. "Once you've enabled Game Mode, you can apply it to any game", claimed Mehdi. Then there is the new Windows Defender Security Centre dashboard (see screenshot above) with many other security themed settings to adjust. Over 50% of issues that Windows users face are because of the lack of basic knowhow to fix them, says Microsoft.

Are there any other Windows Update changes that you would like to see? That means this Build 15063 ISO should not be used to upgrade all of your devices unless you are in the Windows Insider Program. A new Paint3D app is also bundled as part of Microsoft's offerings and will allow the classic Microsoft Paint to edit and create 3D visuals and models. The update moves on from the 2-D canvas on the Paint and offers a multilayered 3D environment.

With our Remix.com community, you can discover millions of objects in the library of 3D objects to customize, edit, and reshare with the community. For example, you can circle that guy in the background and call attention to how goofy he looks.

Devices scheduled for release to coincide with the release of the Creators Update include the Dell Canvas, Asus Zenbook Flip and latest HP Spectre x360. The Personalization section under the Settings app allows you choose the entire color spectrum and not the predefined options only. For instance, you can block installation from unverified sources.

Intelligence: Microsoft is opening up Threat Intelligence to allow admins to feed their own data into the Windows Security Center. This update brings several new features to the platform that should be of interest to corporate users but it's missing at least one that many expected to be in this release.

It's hard to say just when this lucrative deal will close its doors, but for now you can still capitalise upon it if you want a copy of Windows 10 for free. Through the new update parents will be able to set screen time limits, and get reports on how often kids are playing games and staying on the computer each week.
