Windows 10 Anniversary Update Launching August 2nd

Sharing is caring!

It has been nearly a year since the launch of Windows 10, and Microsoft is launching a major update to iron out some of the bugs people have found over the past year. Named the Anniversary update, it will be launched on 2nd of August.

One of the features that has been sorely lacking since launch, though is extensions for the new browser, Edge. With the Anniversary Update, extensions will finally be available. There are a few extensions already in the preview builds, such as Adblock, Adblock Plus, Lastpass, Microsoft Translator, and a few more.

Microsoft is focusing even more on their pen support with Windows Ink. On a system with pen support, there will be an icon in the system tray to launch Windows Ink, where you can get quick access to pen-enabled apps, as well as discover more. They’ve added some excellent features for Windows Ink, including a digital ruler, and even the ability to set reminders of writing notes on.

Windows Hello, which is the biometric authentication system which debuted with Windows 10, will also get some upgrades. Windows Hello support will be available in Microsoft Edge to allow Windows Hello login through the browser to supported sites and web apps. Hopefully this will be the first step on eliminating the password problem.

As previously reported Microsoft will be offering some Linux integration with Bash shell
