Windows 10 update aims to help identify best photos, videos

Finally, Microsoft will add SuSE Linux and Fedora Linux as part of the Windows Linux subsystem, available via the Windows Store.

The Windows 10 SDK Preview Build introduce the following new controls: NavigationView, TreeView, RatingsControl, ColorPicker, ParallaxView and PersonPicture to the Windows.UI.XAML.Controls namespace.

- Clipboard: Clipboard is a fast and easy way to copy and paste just about anything between connected devices, whether you're on a Windows PC or your favorite mobile phone. This new feature will bridge together Windows 10, Android, and iPhone. This is no longer necessary, as the files in their updated format will be available whenever the user clicks them.

Your files, activities, and other content will seamlessly travel across devices and just be there - if the system works as Microsoft promises.

- With Timeline, you'll be able to pick a time, say last Wednesday morning, and see what files, apps and sites you had opened, allowing you to easily jump back to what you were doing.

Microsoft didn't go into detail on all of the new features, but did debut 3-4 major additions.

Today, Microsoft is announcing the triumphant return of this feature but there are a few changes including the name.

I think he did an wonderful job and I think Alexis [Sanchez] knows his name because the kid really played very well. They were walking the streets with their heads low. "It's a big club".

Microsoft is also bringing a new creative app that will introduce a new way of storytelling to Windows 10, the popular My People app, Clipboard Syncing, Timeline feature to keep track of all tasks, improved Pick Up Where You Left Off for Android and iOS, and several other features and improvements with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

The big new application in the Fall Creators Update is Story Remix, a sort of Windows Movie Maker on steroids. It sounds a little like the photo assistant in the popular Google Photos service, but we'll wait to hear more about it. "Imagine logging off your PC and having the doc you were editing pop up on your phone", Myerson asked, adding that Cortana will ask users if they want to pick up where they left off in the app, doc or website.

Windows has a great app for creating videos again. You can share an entire folder or file directly within the iMessage interface.

Built on.NET and distributed through the Windows Store as a Universal Windows Application, Windows Story Remix uses AI and deep learning to organize and transform photos and videos into stories.

If you're expecting Microsoft's new Project Neon or Fluent Design to be a grand remaking of the Windows interface, you'll be disappointed-Microsoft's words, not ours. It is a next-generation board portal that leverages data from lines of business applications to provide a single source of truth for executives to steer the business in real time. The company showed a video demonstrating the Fluent Design system that the company will be baking into the Fall Creators Update.

The roll out of the software is expected later this year.
