The U.S. company does not cease “terrorizing” ordinary citizens

The Windows 10 Fall Creator's Update brings a long list of improvements and new features.

This time on Unboxing for Business we take a look at what Microsoft is doing with its array of Windows Mixed Reality headsets. Now it's finally here, and that means you'll be able to see for yourself how it compares to platforms like Oculus and HTC Vive.

The Fall Creators Update is the fourth major upgrade offered to the operating system, which first launched in 2015.

Until now, any practical use of mixed reality required the use of a headset and for immersive virtual reality, you had to mount cameras in the corners of your home.

Story Remix, a new image and video editing app that enables users to quickly create short video montages using shared photos and video, is also part of the upgrade, which Microsoft's Terry Myserson said had been designed "to help you unlock creativity".

Let's start with the Fall Creators Update. Chief among them are new ransomware blockers that protect users from this costly form of malware. It's just early days for that, however, with subsequent Windows 10 updates adding more and more Fluent Design elements.

On Thursday, Google researcher Mateusz Jurczyk published an analysis on the Project Zero blog describing how Microsoft's handling of Windows updates leaves users of some versions more vulnerable to security risks.

If Fall Creators Update is installed, your Version number will be 1709 and your Build number will be 16299.19 as shown below. Then you can sign in and Windows 10 will go through the final steps to finish installing the update.

If you're itching to give Windows Mixed Reality a whirl, or if you simply like to use the latest version of Windows as soon as it's available, you can download it starting at 10am PT today.

"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. Click the "Restart now" button in the bottom right or the "Restart later" in the bottom left to delay it.

Choose Advanced Options again, and from here you can control download and upload settings, as well as put a cap on how much you'll upload per month.
