Improvements To Windows Mixed Reality In Preview Build 16241

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Improvements To Windows Mixed Reality In Preview Build 16241
Kayla Schwartz | 14 July, 2017, 21:24

The Verge reports that Microsoft has halted the manufacturing of its own Lumia-branded smartphones, with a rumor suggesting that Microsoft will just maintain Windows 10 Mobile support through to 2018. This is the seventh build of the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, which is slated to arrive later this year (likely in September). Also, Microsoft Edge processes are now clearly labeled in the Processes view. If you don't look at anything else, go look at this.

Windows Shell Improvements. These include the ability to recover your PIN or Password from the lock screen.

In this build they have responded to user feedback that the current implementation of Acrylic Material was had noise in it so they have softened that effect. The GPU name is now shown on the left side of the tab.

This shows performance monitors of the four most active GPU engines. You can see charts for 3D, Copy, Video Encode and decode engines.

A total GPU memory text counter has been added next to the dedicated shared text counters located at the bottom of the Performance tab. Also, Direct X version contains the highest supported DX feature level. This improves downloaded content from Windows Update and the Windows Store and makes it faster and more reliable.

Thousands gather for the funeral of Bradley Lowery

The Delivery Optimization Advanced Options page in build 16241 will allow you to enable and disable peer-to-peer functionality and manage the amount of bandwidth Windows uses for updates. During my download of Build 16241, I kept an eye on the Activity Monitor and was able to see the distribution of what data was downloaded from Microsoft, PCs on my local network, or PCs on the Internet. In June, the LinkedIn app was pulled from the Windows Store.

The next addition to the Insider concept from Microsoft is Windows Server which they announced along with their plans for a new release cycle last month.

The biggest problem, though, is that at a £419.99 ($546) price tag, for the cost of the Idol 4 Pro you could get any number of recent Android flagships, that offer just as good, if not better, hardware (like the OnePlus 5) and do so without clinging to the sinking ship that is Windows 10 Mobile.

As for mixed reality, Microsoft has added support for motion controllers over USB (wireless and Bluetooth support is coming soon).

Build 16241 also fixes a variety of other issues picked up in previous builds, including the battery status that wasn't updating for certain laptops when unplugged; the touch keyboard that wasn't automatically displaying uppercase letters at the start of a sentence; and all Storage Spaces issues discovered in 16237 have been fixed.
