Here are some of the most exciting features for Windows 10 Fall Creators Update:

Story Remix

Microsoft has been working on Story Remix for a long time, an app that will replace Windows Movie Maker. The newcomer supports any cloud storage as part of the workflow either on Android, iOS or Windows.

Mixed Reality support

The support for virtual reality headsets could be the biggest new feature arriving with Fall Creators Update. Called Mixed Reality, Microsoft has already named support for headsets from OEMs Dell, HP, Lenovo and Acer.

As hyped, headsets from these brands will not require external tracking boxes as it will function using an HDMI or USB cable plugged into a PC.

OneDrive Files On-Demand

This new feature loads all selected data in the cloud. What is new, however, is that it is essentially useful when users want to pull out certain files from OneDrive using only with the required data to download them.
