Microsoft's Windows 10 October 2018 update is out now

Windows 10 October 2018 Update Available Today Windows 10 October 2018 Update is available from today

An app called 'Your Phone' got some brief stage time, and it will enable app mirroring from an Android phone to a Windows computer. However, what Microsoft is offering Android users is something built right into the operating system, so you can click and drag photos straight from your phone into an editing or social media app. If you install the Microsoft Launcher on your Android device, you are now able to access your Timeline - the new way to keep track of what you're working on and when, which debuted with the April update of Windows 10.

In addition to a blizzard of new Surface hardware, Microsoft also announced at an event on Tuesday that it has started to roll out the next big update to Windows 10. You will have to go to the Search box in the taskbar and type "Check for updates". Windows 10 gets new features, and your phone gets new apps to connect them.

If you see a "What needs your attention" notification when you run the October Update, you have an Intel Display Audio device driver (intcdaud.sys, versions 10.25.0.3 - 10.25.0.8) installed in your system.

DirectX 12 now supports the feature, or DirectX Raytracing as it's known in Windows.

You can read what Windows 10 October 2018 Update brings with itself in our massive categorized changelog article.

Microsoft have also made their Windows 10 Game Mode easier to use as well, which should hopefully result in fewer interruptions when you're mid-game.

You can also find more information in the official blog post. You've already checked for updates at Settings Update & Security, and Windows says "You're Up to Date" (even though you aren't). It was bought by Microsoft in 2016 and finally, it's coming to Windows starting with the October 2018 Update. If you want to snap a screenshot, all you have to do is press the Windows key + Shift + S, and a snipping toolbar will appear. Additionally, SwiftKey is now available on the touch keyboard. We are to soon expect RTX updates for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Battlefield V when it launches next month, Metro Exodus when it launches early next year, and more. I suppose it's nice to have, especially if you're planning on upgrading to Nvidia's latest 20-series "RTX" graphics cards.
