Microsoft bringing one-click Bluetooth accessories pairing to Windows 10

Microsoft Build 2018

However, it's unclear when, or indeed if Microsoft plans to roll out these updates to the greater Windows 10 install base. There are presently distinct keys that allow you locate your captures, toggle your microphone and camera, and update the name of your Mixer stream. Elsewhere there is a new clock and a choice of dark, light or current Windows colour themes. Users should go to Settings, then to Privacy then to Diagnostics & feedback.

Build 17093 includes a few other neat tweaks, including welcome aesthetic changes to the Game Bar and more streamlined pairing to certain Bluetooth devices, as well as security updates and a way to delete diagnostic data that Microsoft has collected about your computer.

HDR video usage has been extended to more users (Settings = Apps = Video playback = Stream HDR video). Microsoft says a lot of modern machines are capable of playing HDR but need to be calibrated in the factory to be able to do so.

Effectively, all the various alternatives to passwords that Microsoft has shoved under the Windows Hello banner will be absorbed into Windows S, which was recently turned from a fully fledged (and not widely used) operating system in its own right to a Windows 10 mode. Previously, Windows Insider Build 17083 installed a Diagnostic Data Viewer on PCs. If you have Windows Hello set up, you won't see passwords anywhere in Windows.

Windows Security improvements: The Windows Defender section in the Settings app has been redesigned and renamed "Windows Security". To obtain those, float your mouse at the top of the screen or drag a finger down from the top of the screen.

The Touch Keyboard now helps multilingual text provider, indicating you don't have to manually change languages and predictions will show up from multiple languages.
