Fourth Major Update Coming Oct. 17 [What to Expect]

Hands-on with IFA's mixed reality headsets

Microsoft made it known that its #Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will be available across the globe on October 17.

"Our mission at Microsoft is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more", said Microsoft Windows chief Terry Myerson in a press release.

Stated for October 17 release, we should see some welcomed additions and a bit of polish for Windows 10.

Others include the feature called Timeline which allows you to "jump back in time to find what you were working on" at some point in the past.

The internal resolution will be 1440×1440 per eye, easily beating the resolution of PSVR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, but the system requirements will also be noticeably lower, with Microsoft supporting Intel HD Graphics 620 that can be found in the latest "Kaby Lake" processors. Alongside the announcement came news that the largely cloud services-oriented software giant will support several new pieces of hardware that integrate augmented and virtual reality features in some capacity.

As expect, Windows Mixed Reality is also coming as part of the update. In this sense, Windows Inking will get some extended support for digital pen actions such as writing on top of PDF files, just as you would annotate in a paper document.

The Microsoft Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 will be available as of October 17, 2017.

Timeline will also work with the new Pick Up Where You Left Off feature - which will let you resume sessions and apps on multiple devices.

Microsoft really wants mixed reality headsets to take off over the holidays.

500 Million Users During the keynote, Nick Parker, corporate vice president for the Windows Consumer and Device Business, said that past year, 500 million people were running Windows 10, making it Microsoft's fastest growing OS.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is reportedly being finalized now and Windows Insiders are testing the builds to iron out any lingering bugs.

"For the first time, we are talking about a mixed reality system that fully immerses you in the experience not limited to a mobile device screen size", added Myerson.

The update to accessibility in this Creative Update includes Eye Control.
