July 'Patch Tuesday' fixes now rolling out for April 2018 Update PCs

Microsoft updates Notepad with long awaited features in latest Windows 10 build

As with other major updates to the operating system, Windows 10 October 2018 Update will bring a number of new features to Windows 10, including an upgraded look thanks to Fluent Design, and improvements to Microsoft Edge.

Whiteboard is available now for all Windows 10 users, and collaboration features are accessible to Office 365 commercial customers and anyone with a personal Microsoft account. Then, once Microsoft promotes the build to the Semi-Annual Channel (SAC) for broad availability like they have done today, you should begin rolling it out to users across your environment.

For users who swear by other text editors, there really are no convincing arguments as to why you would want to switch back to Notepad. The freeform inking app is now generally available on Windows 10, and it will be "coming soon" to iOS and on the web. This image carries even more components than its NanoServer and ServerCore siblings, meaning it can support applications that have additional API dependencies. These protections aren't enabled by default. Microsoft said that it also improved the PDF reader performance, which should open pages more quickly as you scroll through them, as well as as the PDF toolbar, which is now easier to use. And there are new toolbar options in the PDF Reader in Edge as of Build 17713.

While the rollout of a new Preview will delight Insiders, some are going to be less happy about what Microsoft is also announcing.

UK White Paper 'a step towards a softer Brexit'
However, the financial services industry attacked the government, describing the white paper as a "real blow" for the sector. It sets out plans for an end to free movement, with new rules allowing visa-free travel for tourism and temporary work.

All of the new Application Guard settings will appear in the Windows Security dashboard, as long as the devices meet certain hardware requirements. These new feature will be rolled out to all Windows 10 users as part of the Redstone 5 update later this year.

Sign-in has been sped up thanks to a new "Fast Sign-in" option created to help those using a shared or guest Windows 10 machine. Starting with this build, the company is introducing a feature called "Fast Sign-in" to enable users to sign in to a shared Windows 10 PC in a flash.

You can install this month's Windows 10 cumulative update on your own devices by going to Settings Update & Security Check for updates. Web Sign-in enables Windows logon support for non-ADFS federated providers, Microsoft says. In contrast, with an express update, the content delivery network pushes down both missing and new quality update elements, regardless of the computing environment's monthly Windows 10 patch status.

This Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17713 build also comes with several bug fixes and known issues.
