Now, the company has announced that in the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview build, Microsoft is testing a Power Throttling feature that will save overall battery usage. With each release being offered for free, and in the case of home users rolled into monthly update releases, this is unlikely to have a major effect on most users. The Office 365 ProPlus typically gets new updates three times a year.

Furthermore, in the blog post, Microsoft also claims that Windows 10 now runs on more than 400 million active devices per month with the fastest adoption rate ever seen in the history of Windows. Microsoft felt it needed to clarify this aspect of new Windows 10 releases for the sake of "clarity and predictability to organizations".

The update version available for Windows Mobile is 10.849.31563.0, while on PC it's 10.849.31563.0. However, the company frequently upgraded smaller functionalities in the Office suite nearly on a weekly basis.

Windows 10 updates will now arrive in March and September each year, with the next release set for September 2017, and each release will be serviced and supported for 18 months. That is to say, the use of older Office versions that have dropped into extended support will no longer be possible. There is also some changes to the Office 365 system requirements, and starting October 13, 2020, Office 365 ProPlus or Office perpetual in mainstream support will be required to connect to Office 365 services.

Zidane opted for a chance after 71 minutes as Mariano replaced Lucas as they pushed for a winning goal in the closing stages. Yannick Carrasco struck twice and Filipe Luis added another goal as third-placed Atletico eased past bottom-side Osasuna .

Microsoft also hints that this new regime should mean less work, overall, as Windows 10's improved security and frequent updates have "made large-scale, costly wipe-and-replace Windows deployments every few years a thing of the past".

We don't know anything else about Redstone 3, but we expect to learn about it at Microsoft's Build developer conference in May.

He outlined two methods of editing out these functions, with the only caveat being that users would have to apply a new patch whenever wuaueng.dll was updated.

Those programs aren't meant for most users, but for people who want to be on the cutting edge (like tech journalists!) can use them to stay up on the latest features.
