Windows 10 setup now supports voice commands, thanks to Cortana

With today's release, the Redmond giant is now kicking off the release cycle for preview builds of the next iteration of Windows 10, codenamed Redstone 3.

Microsoft pushed Build 16170 of Windows 10 to the Fast Ring on Friday, an otherwise bland update that fixes a few bugs.

According to John Cable, director of program management and part of the Windows servicing and delivery team, the first group to get Creators Update will be users of "newer devices, especially those we tested together with our OEM hardware partners". The Windows 10 Creators Update comes with a dedicated game mode, which will divert resources away from useless background tasks to the game.

File Explorer Share. Microsoft has updated the Share icon in the File Explorer ribbon to match its new Share iconography. Though we really have no idea what will be in Redstone 3, we can make some good guesses: Microsoft has already said that it had delayed the "My People" experience until the fall release, and Microsoft has also implied that that's when we'll see a more unified rollout for mixed reality-perhaps in conjunction with the Project Scorpio next-gen Xbox console.

Fixed that Cortana Reminders was listed as a Share target when Cortana was disabled on the PC.

Fixed a high-DPI issue when System (Enhanced) scaling is enabled.

There is a bug where if you need to restart your PC due to a pending update like with the latest Surface firmware updates, the restart reminder dialog doesn't pop up.

Certain UI errors (green blinking button) in the Game Bar while broadcasting live to Beam may appear but it does not affect the quality of your broadcast.

Windows Defender can not be opened with a double-click.

The Action Center may get into a state where dismissing one notification unexpectedly dismisses multiple. However, if you can't wait until then, you can always install it manually by downloading the update from the internet or do a fresh install of Windows using the Media Creation Tool.
