Microsoft releases Windows 10 19H1 Build 18309

Windows 10 surpasses Windows 7 to become most popular desktop OS

IT staff are not often the fastest to install patches, lest they cause more issues than they solve, but a new vulnerability in all versions of Windows 10 and Windows Server suggests they may need to rethink that policy.

Sadly, there's no indication that the most popular version of Microsoft's OS-Windows 10 Home-will see any changes to its install process, so if you want Cortana to pipe down, you can do what I do and do not forget to turn the volume down prior to a wipe or install, or just plug in a pair of headphones.

With this build, Microsoft is also bringing the more "streamlined Windows Hello PIN reset experience" it first introduced last month for Windows 10 Home to all editions of the operating system.

Is James Harden a Better Player Than LeBron James Currently?
Whereas Harden's usage sat at 36.2 percent in the lead-up to Paul's injury, it's spiked to 42.9 percent in the games since. Harden described his confidence as being "through the roof", adding that it has been that way for some time now.

The point here is that Microsoft really needs to learn to streamline the Windows 10 setup experience going forward. Mac OS X 10.14 sits in third place with 4.73 percent, and Windows XP is fourth with 4.54 percent.

Microsoft baffles Windows 10 users by apparently collecting data about recently opened websites and apps when users have opted against sharing that information. Yet despite the free upgrade offers and Microsoft's pushy, occasionally malware-like tactics to get people to move to its newest OS, Windows 7 retained the larger market share, mostly due to its popularity among enterprise users. The tech giant has since introduced the Authenticator app, which allows users to log into their Microsoft account on their desktop using their phone.

That doesn't mean these password-less accounts will use one-time codes as their only authentication factor. The initial sign-in will use SMS, and it will then prompt you to configure biometric or PIN authentication. Microsoft already confirmed previous year that its Windows 10 OS version has been installed on 700 million devices including PCs, Xbox, tablets and phones.

Donald Trump says government shutdown could last 'a long time'
Trump could actually make this worse by offering something like a DACA deal and daring Democrats to reject it. The partial shutdown is affecting about a quarter of the federal government, and 800,000 federal employees.

Moral of the story: Windows 10's setup experience is inconvenient and incomplete.

The company has also added 11 additional mouse pointer sizes in the Cursor and Pointer settings, taking the total number of sizes to 15.

This feature is available now in Insider build 18309. A stable version of the feature will make its way onto all Windows 10 versions later this year, likely around April. At the beginning of the year, market share sat at 34.29 and 42.39 percent for Windows 10 and Windows 7, respectively.
