The tech giant, Microsoft is now rolling out the new app for all Windows 10 users with the new Windows 10 October update.

New October update features include a shared Clipboard feature as well as an improved Notepad. This is possible by checking for updates in Settings Update & Security Windows Update. In years gone by, they'd have been known as Service Packs, but they tend to be slightly smaller in scope and more regular now.

The Windows 10 October Update will likely begin automatically downloading for many of you over the next few days, so expect to see an update on your machine soon. It'll drop down to your computer via Windows Update from 9 October.

Now for the October update, they have extended it for phones sof that you can see your PC timeline on your phone.

Problem is, this won't work for all systems because the update won't be offered if Microsoft's machine learning algorithms have determined that the installation of the update may be problematic on the device. An app called 'Your Phone' got some brief stage time, and it will enable app mirroring from an Android phone to a Windows computer.

Did you know that there are multiple ways to download and install feature updates for Windows 10?

It's hard to find, but you can now change the size of text in Windows 10 without making everything else bigger, too. It's not exactly going to be a great experience for iOS.

Microsoft just released the October 2018 Update for Windows 10. Available in preview on Android with the Microsoft Launcher now. Here we take a look at this handy tool and show you how to get started with it.

This is a nice little addition that gives you more control over what's using up your Windows 10 laptop's battery life. You no longer have to go back and forth! And - finally - you can customise the Edge toolbar! When the tool get to the actual update phase, you'll get a progress indicator, but no ETA. You can snip a rectangle, a freeform shape, or the entire screen. You can even send and receive texts.

But wait, there's more: Microsoft also used its event to tease another forthcoming new feature.

Sorry, iPhone users - Your Phone only lets you send links to view on, uh, your phone.

All in all, it's a reflection of Microsoft's recognition that, without a viable phone platform of its own, it needs to integrate tightly with the iPhones and Androids of today to stay relevant. To-Do works with Office 365 and also now Outlook.com (it synchronises using your Microsoft Account).

The latest update is officially version 1809, build 17763. The first thing that users are likely to notice is support for a dark theme to use with File Explorer.
