Microsoft targets state-sponsored hackers in latest 'Patch Tuesday' release

Microsoft targets state-sponsored hackers in latest 'Patch Tuesday' release

Microsoft has been working on improving the performance of the operating system until the release of Windows 10 April 2018 Update.

Microsoft will be adding something new, a command bar flyout that basically will show you inline tools and options, making the access efficient while also saving the space at the top where such options are now present.

Also arriving in the preview build are some additional hints of Microsoft's Fluent Design System such as the acrylic title bar in Sets.

With today's release of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17666, Microsoft added an updated Dark Theme for File Explorer that is for the most part usable.

Have you experienced any issues with the Windows 10 April 2018 Update on a system running an Intel SSD? However, there is no clarity on whether this feature applies to the browser tabs within a specific Set only, or if it will include all tabs in the browser. Sets will now feature browser tabs with you hit alt+tab, essentially bridging the gap between apps and websites. Microsoft this time, is quite focused on making the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps adaptable to all kinds of input, whether touch screens or keyboard and mouse as presently the apps are designed more for touch inputs. Individual Sets tabs can be muted, like Edge, and you can specify whether you'd prefer new windows to open in the Sets tabbed environment, or within traditional windows.

Nintendo Is Hiring For A New Legend of Zelda Game
This is great news as this means Nintendo is already thinking about releasing more games from the famous franchise. With Nintendo advertising for major positions, the next Zelda project is likely in early development.

The new featured called Your Phone allows users to access their smartphone directly from their PC. If you have encountered this issue, you can roll back to Windows 10, version 1709 and wait for the resolution before attempting to install the April 2018 Update again. Those who don't require synchronization can turn it off, and if you don't require the storing of multiple items, then you can disable the feature as well.

Microsoft has added support to Windows line endings (CRLF) during Build 2018 and this new version brings support for Macintosh line endings (CR) and Unix/Linux line endings (LF). The feature can be accessed in three different ways: through the right-click (context) menu, the Edit menu, and by clicking CTRL + B. Hopefully, this will soon expand to smartphones via Microsoft's SwiftKey keyboard app for iOS and Android, as Microsoft previously announced.

One of the most critical flaws is a "use after free" vulnerability in the Windows VBScript engine that can be used to force Internet Explorer to load and to execute code.

Users will now be able to add name to the tile folders created in Start.
