Windows 10 Fall Creators Update release date set, Mixed Reality too!

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update release date set, Mixed Reality too!

Gaming and virtual experiences also take front and center with the Fall Creators Update, since they will not only be supported by a majority of Windows PCs, laptops, and 2-in-1s but also usher in a new partnership that will significantly enhance the overall experience: Steam. Microsoft has also added a feature called Windows Find my Pen, so you'll never lose your pen again. You'll be able to see all of your files that are stored in the cloud - even if you haven't chosen to sync them - and you can choose to store them offline by right-clicking on the file or folder and choosing that option. The new update will allow you to log in to your Windows 10 PC using your phone login.

Microsoft has yet to confirm a release date for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. That said, PC gamers are likely to benefit from Microsoft's mixed reality, especially once third party designers get their hands on the software company's latest tech.

At IFA, several manufacturers, including Acer, Asus, Dell, HP and Lenovo have detailed mixed reality headsets, which will go on sale at the same time the new version of Windows 10 is rolled out.

To get Windows 10 adopted quickly, Microsoft plans to give it away as a free upgrade for a year after its release. Technically speaking, Microsoft's main competitor for the Oculus is their HoloLens project, but their mixed reality headset offers an equally interesting experience at a smaller price point.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update release date set, Mixed Reality too!

As has been the case for the past couple of Windows 10 releases, Microsoft doesn't start delivering a new Windows 10 feature update the month that the build is marked as "done".

Microsoft's new software release shrinks the laborious set-up of VR headsets for users to around 10 minutes, down from two to three hours now, in a step towards making such technology mainstream, Microsoft officials said. Currently, Microsoft is finalizing the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and the testing is expected to be completed by the end of September. Starting November 7, users can play these games on the Xbox One X. Windows Ink will now allow users the ability to drawing straight into PDF documents, a welcomed addition.

Skip Ahead users are getting the world's first taste of RS4. The headsets, which cost $299 and up, will also ship on October 17, according to Myerson.
