Windows 10 Fall Creators Update confirmed for 17 October release

Lenovo Explorer hands-on

Microsoft still has yet to deem the Fall Creators Update as being feature-complete (or, as many of us still prefer to call it, RTM), but does plan to do so in September, hence its 1709 nomenclature.

The free upgrade includes new gaming, security, and accessibility features but most notably includes support for Windows Mixed Reality.

Technically billed as mixed reality products, these will essentially work the same way as a Rift or Vive, beaming the user into a "new reality" by combining "physical and digital worlds".

The French worldwide made eight appearances on loan at Palace last season, but had his spell cut short with a knee injury. Frank de Boer reflects on Crystal Palace's defeat against Swansea and how playing similar formations affected the sides.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is going to be the fourth major addition to the OS, and it follows the Creators Update, which came earlier this year. Also, you may ink directly on PDF documents, and use the new Windows Find my Pen feature to find the pen if you have misplaced it. Windows Insiders will be the first to try the final version, and then it will be released to all users. The best part is that the OneDrive files can be accessed without having to sync the folder in entirety. With the Fall Creators Update, we've updated Game Mode, which allows your games to use the full processing power of your device as if it was an Xbox game console, right from a new button on the Game bar.

Microsoft says that it has "reimagined" the Photos app to "deliver remixed experiences for telling your stories with photos, videos, music, 3D, and, even inking". Headsets will have a starting as low as $299.

Official support for Microsoft Mixed Reality headsets - such as the models coming from Dell, HP, Acer and Lenovo - is also coming with the 17 October update, and those headsets are also expected to start shipping on or soon after 17 October, Myerson added. But with a price tag of $3,000, Windows-based mixed reality was a niche market made up of tech-savvy enterprises, developers and deep-pocketed enthusiasts.

One of the key features of the Fall Creators Update (FCU) is Windows Mixed Reality.
