Window 10 build 17074 brings lots of new features to Microsoft Edge

Windows 10 Settings app

Microsoft Windows 10 version 1709, or what is better known a the Fall Creators Update is now available to all systems (that are eligible for the update). Those running Windows 10 with the older Anniversary Update or Creators Update and who use automatic updates will be sent a reminder that the Fall Creators Update is ready to install and asked to pick a time, with an option to defer the reminder until tomorrow.

It's probable that Microsoft will reschedule the 1607 retirement, however, as a previous extension to 1511 has that late-2015 feature upgrade receiving security and non-security updates until April 2018. Using the data Microsoft and its partners have obtained from testing and feedback on this initial wave of upgrades, the company has further optimised its software to provide a smooth experience for all.

The Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 is now ready for businesses to deploy, according to Microsoft.

Favorites bar improvements: The Favorites Bar has received many improvements in the latest build which now automatically shows Start and New Tab pages.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update has reached full availability, meaning all compatible devices should now be upgraded or have an upgrade available to the latest version of Windows.

We're thrilled to be offering the Fall Creators Update to all our customers, and we expect commercial customers to have the same level of confidence based on quality from their own broad deployments.

Now You: which version of Windows do you run? Because these vulnerabilities start at the processor level, however, having the latest Windows operating system (OS) updates is not sufficient to be fully protected; you will also need to install related firmware updates from your device manufacturer.

I suggest that you create a full system backup before you install the update.

Of course, each new version of Windows 10 is offered to Windows 10 users as a free update, meaning all you have to do is press "check for updates" in Windows Update and have the rest taken care of for you.

Windows 10 users can also manually install the Fall Creators Update by heading to Microsoft's software download site and clicking Update Now.

All Windows 10 users should make sure to install the Fall Creators Update in order to benefit from the security updates that were made available since its release.

As always, we're actively listening.
