Windows 10 Creators Update nearing final launch: What to expect

While installing the operating system update users will be given new options to choose from various privacy settings to secure the system even more


The Windows 10 Creators Update is just around the corner and allegedly the launch is just weeks away. According to a source, the Windows 10 Creators Update is now at the final stage of development and will be sent to the testers by the end of this month, reported iTechPost.

Microsoft has been releasing previews of the Creators Update since August, last month and as we have seen it's getting more tech-rich and less buggy as the operating system gets nearer to final roll out.

Here is what you can expect from the new update: more changes to its start menu, improvements and interface changes, a new comprehensive Windows Defender interface, updates on Microsoft Edge, 3D and gaming features, a few Cortana updates and many more additional minor changes.

Also, there are some very important privacy setting updates expected from Windows 10 Creators Update. While installing the operating system update users will be given options to choose from various privacy settings, such as, whether Microsoft should collect content so it can display relevant ads or whether the Location setting should be turned on, and so on. And the best part is users can always change these later in the Privacy section of Settings.

Apart from Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft is also working on the next major Windows 10 upgrade, codenamed Redstone 3. This is important because this upgrade of Microsoft is going to see some key overhauls as the company's aim is to get its software on as many devices as possible. Redstone 3 is also rumored to bring a major design change. Windows 10 is supposed to get a completely new and fresh look in this upgrade. Redstone 3 is supposedly scheduled to be launched sometime later this year only.
