new google gmailSometime back we reported that Google is planning a complete overhaul of Gmail. Starting today, users will see the new changes in Gmail for Web. The changes include snoozing, hover actions and a brand new sidebar. The changes are rolled out to almost 1.2 Billion Gmail users so don’t panic if you don’t get the update straight away. You can head below to take a look at all the new changes with this update. Google has added “confidential mode” to the new Gmail which will prevent users from copying, downloading or printing the email. This is good especially for corporates who send and receive sensitive emails. Confidential mode also allows users to set an expiration date after which the email will become inaccessible. Users can also add an option to encrypt the email using a passcode which the receiver needs to enter in order to access the email.Google has also transformed Tasks which was a to-do list tool that has been hidden in Gmail since 2008. It has been integrated into a much more useful, nicer-looking way to make lists. It has launched delightfully simple mobile apps for it, too. Learn how to get the New Gmail Now on OUR FORUM.
Windows 10 Lean could be another stripped down version of Windows PDF Print E-mail

Windows 10 LeanWindows 10 Mobile seemed to be a stripped-down version of Windows 10 since they shared the same kernel, UI components, settings and they even shared the same UWP app platform. But Windows 10 Mobile was never a stripped-down version of Windows 10. Also, things didn’t turn out as expected and Microsoft had to move Windows 10 Mobile to the feature2 branch which focussed only on bug fixes and under the hood improvements. Now, Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 10 Mobile will no longer be available in any new hardware which makes the OS dead. The need for an actual stripped down version of Windows 10 is quite high, especially for low-cost Windows 10 devices. ChromeOS works well with budget devices with poor specifications. This made ChromeOS very popular in the education segment. Microsoft’s answer to this was Windows 10 S. While it wasn’t necessarily a lighter version of Windows 10, it tried to be that lighter version by disabling the ability to download apps from outside the Microsoft Store. This would prevent the installation of executable files which would eventually slow down the PC in a long term. So the only advantages of Windows 10 S were that it wouldn’t slow down the PC in the long run and also would make it more secure. Follow this and more on OUR FORUM.

welcome pageMicrosoft recently pushed a new RTM build to all rings of the Windows Insider program, suggesting that the company is ready to begin the public launch of Windows 10 Redstone 4. Today, Microsoft has confirmed that the next version of the operating system could be called “Windows 10 April Update’. Microsoft Edge is getting a server-side update in the Redstone 4 builds and the browser displays a new welcome page which confirms that the “Windows 10 April Update” could be the name of the next update. The welcome page is also promoting the features of Windows 10 April Update including Windows Timeline. This could also mean that Microsoft is very close to completing the testing process of the RTM ahead of the release. The company has already pushed the Windows 10 Build 17134 for download for users in the Fast, Slow, and Release Preview rings. It is, however, worth noting that the release depends on the bugs and other factors. If no major bugs are found, the update could be released as soon as next week, and the second wave of the update should begin next month. It shouldn’t be surprising as Microsoft prefers gradual rollout of the operating system. Microsoft was supposed to begin the rollout of Windows 10 April Update on April 10 but the company delayed the launch after it discovered a critical blocking bug in the previous RTM build. There is one more bug in the operating system that causes the Settings app to crash when changing the default app. Microsoft is aware of the bug and it could be fixed with a cumulative update.

surface laptopMicrosoft is today rolling out the Windows 10 Build 17134 to the Windows Insiders in the Slow and Release Preview Ring, which suggests that the update could be rolled out to the public by the end of this month if everything goes as per the plan. Microsoft might be planning to address the Settings app bug with a cumulative update which could be released as soon as next week. Windows 10 Build 17134 is reportedly the RTM candidate of Windows 10 April 2018 Update and it comes with fixes for some reliability issues that have been discovered in Build 17133. A couple of days ago, we reported about a bug in Windows 10 Settings where selecting app defaults options crashes the app. Microsoft’s Windows Insider team has acknowledged the bug and the company has also confirmed that it was not widespread based on the amount of the data available. It’s likely that Microsoft will address this bug with a cumulative update. It’s still not clear if Windows 10 version 1803 will be called April 2018 Update or when the general public rollout will begin. Before rolling out the update to all users, Microsoft will listen to Insider feedback and fix remaining issues. Windows 10 version 1803 is a big update for the operating system as it brings some substantial improvements in terms of both features and improvements. The Fluent Design in Windows 10 is receiving a big update in this release as Microsoft is bringing the acrylic effect to other parts of the operating system such as Microsoft Store.

Microsoft wins patent for the Surface Studio’s innovative rotatable display PDF Print E-mail

Surface StudioThe Surface Studio reinvented the All In One desktop category when it was announced on October 26, 2016. It was the first desktop computer which was manufactured entirely by Microsoft. It was launched at a time when nothing new and innovative was happening in the world of desktops. Microsoft’s Surface line up was either reinvents an old category or creates a whole new category. We can say that the Microsoft Surface Studio reinvented or rather reimagined the desktop. The Surface Studio featured a 28-inch 4.5K Pixel Sense display with a 3:2 aspect ratio and a resolution of 4500 x 3000 pixels which is equivalent to a pixel density of 192 dpi. Windows was originally created for 96 dpi so mathematically a 200% scaling can be done on the Surface Studio. This display was also color calibrated at the factory itself to ensure accurate and precise display color for high profile creators. After all, the Surface Studio was designed with creators in mind. Even though it came with the Windows 10 Anniversary update, it was optimized for the Creators Update.  The patent was filed in April 2016 at the U.S Patent Office. The good news is that Microsoft won this patent on April 3, 2018. For more navigate to OUR FORUM.
