What is the Windows 10 Creators Update?

Posted on: April 28th, 2017 by jiml | No Comments

You may have heard about a new Microsoft update to Windows 10 being released called “Creators Update”. This release is now in production and Microsoft will be automatically installing it on all Windows 10 computers in a staggered release. If you are running Windows 10, you will eventually get the Creators Update.

So, what is in this update and why is it called “Creators Update”? Microsoft is appealing to a target audience here with enhancements for those who use their computer for drawing, gaming, or other creative endeavors. Windows 10 Creators Update will have a new app called Paint 3D and be better able to render and work with 3D imaging. Paint 3D will allow users to take a two-dimensional object and render it as a 3D object. There are myriad of gaming updates which we will not discuss here in a business-focused blog.

Microsoft has also made improvements to its Edge browser. If you were an early adopter of Windows 10, you may not have had a great experience with the Edge browser. Microsoft released it, perhaps prematurely, before functionality like browser extensions were available. If you fall into this camp, I would encourage you to take another look at Edge. The Creators Update will offer many new extensions like RoboForm and others. Jump lists are supported now making it easier to open the window you want right from the task bar.

One new feature I am looking forward to is the “Night Light” feature which is another screen brightness setting that reduced the amount of blue light emitted from your computer for night-time reading.
