Microsoft detailed the new 'Windows 10 Fall Creators Update'

Microsoft has revealed the details of its Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, including updates to Windows Timeline, and the various ways in which the operating system will leverage Microsoft Graph.

What this means to you: If there's a theme to the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, it's connection rather than creation. The fall Windows 10 update will include features for playing games and watching video in the realm of "mixed reality", the melding of the artificial with things that are actually happening around us.

Also, Microsoft announced.Net Standard for UWP and XAML Standard, both due later this year, to help Windows developers simplify and modernize their existing code base to more easily drive cross-platform engagement, said Terry Myerson, executive vice president of the Windows and Devices Group at Microsoft.

Pick Up Where You Left Off, a similar Cortana feature that will allow users to resume their work across Windows, iOS and Android devices.

Microsoft is also tweaking one of the most basic features of a computer: copy and paste.

The Microsoft Graph works within the Microsoft Cloud, allowing you to continue what you were doing on any device; again, even if that device is iOS or Android.

Real Madrid close on Atletico teenager Theo Hernandez
The player and the club hope to announce the move officially after the Copa del Rey final between Alaves and Barcelona on May 27. But Atletico are desperate for that not to happen as they don't their hottest prospect to sign for their arch rivals.

Pick Up Where You Left Off: Microsoft is prepping a feature that lets you pull up your last used file, app, or website on your phone after you log off your PC, or vice versa. All your files, whether offline or online, will be viewable in Windows 10's File Explorer and will work just like every other file on your device. Windows users will get the complete iTunes experience, including Apple Music and the iTunes Store, as well as support for iPhone and other Apple devices on any Windows 10 or Windows 10 S PC.

Windows Story Remix, meanwhile, sounds like what Google already does with its Google Photos Assistant, stitching together photos into a slideshow, sometimes combining them with video.

The Microsoft Fluent Design System will deliver a better cross-device experience, making jumping from platform to platform, or device to device, much easier. When you try to open a file that isn't stored on your PC, Windows will download it and open it for you. Microsoft also announced it is working with SUSE Linux and Fedora Linux running on the Windows Subsystem for Linux to bring them to the Windows Store. We will be seeing Fluent apps in this update and developers are being asked to get on board. That is far less than the $3,000 to $5,000 Microsoft has been charging for another mixed reality headset called HoloLens.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will also see the magic of mixed reality brought to consumers around the world.

Windows is making hand-held controllers for virtual reality.
