Second Chance at Life: Fans Rally To Save Microsoft Paint

Microsoft rejigs Windows release cycles

Microsoft rejigs Windows release cycles

The company said Paint will - for now, at least - be moving to the Windows Store, where it will be available for users to download for free.

Development of the next feature update of Windows 10, the Fall Creators Update, is slowly coming to an end as Microsoft shifted development from adding features in builds to fixing issues and giving the new version a bit of polishing before release.

As the Redmond giant conducts the final Bug Bash ahead of the public launch of the Windows 10 fall creators Update, the company is not looking to leave shipping out new features.

Some of MS Paint's functionality was already integrated into Paint 3D, which came with the Windows 10 update released in April and will remain the default art app. Select either "Continue now" for the website to open on your linked PC or "Continue later" for the website to display under Action Center for later enjoyment.

Cortana has been improved in this build and lets you get web search results within the digital assistant without the need for opening a separate browser.

He will get a chance to back up Philip Rivers in L.A., and Jones issued a statement of thanks to Bills fans. Along with Peterman and Taylor in the Bills quarterback room is recently signed veteran T.J.

One of the first uses is called "cross-browsing". Instead, Microsoft is advising businesses to start pilots of new feature updates once they begin rolling out to consumers.

On the Share screen, you have to tap "Continue on PC". You can now ask Cortana questions like, "Hey Cortana, Restart PC" or "Hey Cortana, sign out", to perform sign-out, shutdown, lock, restart operations without using your voice. When asking certain questions the Cortana pane will automatically expand, providing you with a quick answer to your question.

Some Android users may wonder why the idea of web-page sharing is a big deal, however.

In Insider Build 14986, Microsoft included the capability to turn off your PC orally with a Cortana command. The Windows 10 Mobile Build 15320 which was released to the fast ring for Insiders a couple of weeks ago is now available for users in Slow Ring.

Windows 10 Insider Preview build 16251 is not overly spectacular when it comes to new features because of that. To enable the new feature, go to Settings System Display.
