As you might have guessed, this automatically saves progress to the cloud for compatible apps, so your Windows device and mobile always have the most up to date version of your work. Mixed reality blends aspects of both. Top of the list is making sure opening and closing tabs are a lot smoother.

Microsoft's spokespersons spent most of the first day of the company's annual Build conference talking about Cortana and other AI-related topics. The last major update, which arrived in March, was the Creators Update. Regular Windows 10 users can however already get iTunes from Apple website. This new expansion will allow interested developers to download and install Linux tools quickly on their Windows 10 system. You'll be able to copy and paste files off your PC and onto an Android phone or iPhone.

Story Remix is a brand new application coming to Windows 10 in the Fall Creators Update.

Microsoft introduced the Fall Creators Update alongside new development tools created to help application makers take advantage of the cross-device features.

Story Remix is also tapped into Microsoft's Remix3D community, a searchable library of virtual objects created by contributing artists (who are credited whenever someone uses their work). The two other updates worth mentioning are updated power throttling, which will replace "Background Moderated" with "Power Throttling" in the task manager, and the ability to set the volume of Universal Windows Platform apps individually.

The new Windows 10S promises various benefits like faster performance, cheaper price tag, and better security when compared to Windows 10. Microsoft says it not only wants to connect with those foreign operating systems, but by bringing over functionality from Windows 10 (along with content) it hopes to "make those other devices better", as one Microsoft rep said in a press briefing yesterday.

The Fluent Design System for Windows 10 is being introduced.

Microsoft also announced update to Ink, its software which enables most functions to be operated with a pen. Firstly, mixed reality headset dev kits from HP and Acer are now available for pre-order, starting at $329 and $299 respectively.

The idea, Belfiore said, is to rethink the Windows interface so it relies less on a mouse and keyboard - smoothing the way forward for alternative input methods, like the finger-gesture controls of the Microsoft HoloLens headset, or digital pen styluses. Unlike the HTC Vive, or Oculus Rift's controllers, you won't need to setup any extra hardware for the motion controllers in Windows Mixed Reality to work and that's definitely very impressive. Microsoft stated that developers in the US and Canada can pre-order an Acer ($299 USD) or HP ($329 USD) Windows Mixed Reality Headset Developer Edition starting today from the Microsoft Store for delivery later this summer.
