Windows 10 October 2018 Update Users Start Reporting Early Issues

Windows 10 October 2018 Update Available Today

Microsoft today announced the general availability of their Windows 10 October 2018 Update and for those on servers/clouds is Windows Server 2019.

As such, Microsoft has now put a block on afflicted machines being offered the Windows 10 update, although users can push things through if they really want to.

Not long after introducing Timeline to Windows 10, Microsoft is porting the feature to your Android phone as well. And, hey, maybe you'll learn something new that you can incorporate into your daily routine.

The Microsoft Launcher 5.0 for Android allows users to synchronise activities between their PC and Android phone through Timeline Support. Microsoft has also promised to enable an exciting-sounding app-mirroring feature. This time, however, it's actually got a bunch of neat gaming goodies in store, especially if you're one of the three people who have already bought one of Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2080 or RTX 2080Ti graphics cards since they came out a couple of weeks ago.

You can check out how to set it up here.

You will be receiving an emergency alert text from President Trump Wednesday
You can expect it to sound like an Amber Alert or flood warning, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency ( FEMA ). Pacific, is the first test of a national presidential alert system that will let any president issue a warning about a crisis.

Microsoft wrote on Twitter "Sometimes you can't stop for a text". Microsoft says that it's coming to iPhone at some point soon as well. In another announcement, users will be able to copy the text or image from one PC to another via the Cloud Clipboard feature. It is also possible to use the installation media to install Windows 10 anew on a PC.

"These emoji can be accessed by opening the emoji panel (Windows Key + ".").

This is actually a pretty cool productivity feature on the new Windows 10 update.

Embracing users wanting to run open source Linux distributions on the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), Microsoft has extended its operating system firewall to allow the creation of rules for WSL in version 1809. But it also means that the company has updated the set of files that the update tool can grab from their servers.

Now if you'll excuse me, I've going to spend the next couple of hours starting at lots of little dots going round in circles. Of course you can use Ctrl+V in the same way, but Windows+V displays a new panel, powered by Windows Timeline. They include a new Microsoft To-Do app, which does exactly what you might expect, as well as a whole host of snipping and markup tools also added as part of Snip & Sketch, previously known as Screen Sketch.
