The new Cortana chat-based experience is your updated personal productivity assistant where you can type or speak requests in natural language to save time finding what you need and stay on track. For the best experience, sign in with your work or school account and connect with people, check your schedule, add tasks, set reminders and more, an official blog post revealed.
Helps you block potentially unwanted apps
In order to provide you cleaner, faster, safer interface, Windows 10 update in May helps you block potentially unwanted apps. According to a blog post, “When you download apps it’s not always obvious what you’re getting. Some apps might display unexpected advertising, use your PC for cryptomining, or do other things you’d prefer they not do. These are potentially unwanted apps (PUA) and Windows 10 can help spot them, let you know we have concerns, and let you decide whether you really want that app or not.” A user simply need to follow the following path:
- Go to Windows Security
- Click on App & browser control
- Tap on Reputation-based protection
- Select ‘Potentially unwanted app blocking’
Allows you to name your desktops
According to a blog by Aaron Woodman, General Manager of Windows Marketing, “Now instead of “Desktop 1” or “Desktop 2” you can give your Virtual Desktops more descriptive, clever or amusing names. Using Virtual Desktop in Windows 10 allows you to expand your desktop beyond the physical limitations of the space, organize groups of related tasks, and easily switch between them.” This feature will help you tackle what and when you want things much easier.
