Microsoft is rolling out the October 2018 Update to Windows 10 users now, and with it comes a ton of new features. Microsoft releases these updates twice a year, and they're packed with too many new features and changes in one place - especially when most of them probably won't be noticed by the majority of PC users.

So, here's a list of new Windows 10 features that might have the most impact for users on a day-to-day basis. And, hey, maybe you'll learn something new that you can incorporate into your daily routine. (Personally, I'll be making an effort to use Timeline and the new Cloud Clipboard more often.)

Vista was bad. Coming five years after XP, it was heavily anticipated by Windows users who were impatiently awaiting something interesting from Microsoft as Apple's star was on the rise.

Android P is here, for those who want it, with a compatible device and the patience to put up with a few extra bugs and crashes. We've been playing around with the beta OS on a Pixel 2, and these are the most promising features we've come across so far - including a few hidden goodies Google hasn't mentioned yet.

Installing updates on Windows has always been a pain. Not only does Microsoft seem hellbent on forcing users to update their machines whether they want to or not - including in prior versions of Windows 10 a nightmare "feature" that forcibly seized control of users' systems to start the installation process - the process is infamously slow.

The combination of these factors can make updating a Windows machine feel less like a minor but necessary inconvenience than a suddenly imposed tug-of-war for control of a computer. Fortunately, Microsoft is now mulling ways to make the process less painful.

This week marks one year since the launch of what is arguably Microsoft’s most ambitious – and possibly most controversial – operating system: Windows 10. Windows 10 represents a fundamentally different approach compared to the earlier versions of Windows that many of us have used, such as the highly popular Windows 7. A year after its launch, it continues to evolve and improve upon its predecessor. However, the privacy concerns still haven't gone away.
