Some of the features to expect on the new update include enhancing Pen and Inking tools, adding a new 3D Paint system, unveiling the powerful Remix video editing and 3D creation tool, and fully bringing its mixed-reality platform, Windows Holographic to Windows 10. That said, not all users are enthused with the necessity to upgrade, because, as we have come to realize, Windows 10 upgrades can break apps and hardware drivers. The best part is that the OneDrive files can be accessed without having to sync the folder in entirety.

Microsoft's new software release shrinks the laborious set-up of VR headsets for users to around 10 minutes, down from two to three hours now and helps cut the costs of headsets, in a step towards making such technology more mainstream, they said.

As far as gaming is concerned, Windows Creators Fall updates the Game Mode, which allows games to use the full processing power of a user's device. The update will allow PC gamers to set the computer to max out the processor for smoother gameplay, and there'll be a bunch of new games as well. Starting November 7, users can play these games on the Xbox One X. Last month, it moved testers onto separate programmes so it could ensure a stable version when Fall Creators Update was ready for release.

Admins will be able to more easily manage these features using Intune and System Center Configuration Manager, according to Microsoft, with these orchestration tools will also be updated to make it easier for companies to audit the security configuration and patch status of devices across their IT estate.

Mixed Reality headsets will start at $299 from Acer, with HP pricing its own at $329, and Dell / Lenovo pricing theirs at $349. However, Microsoft has finally put a shipping date on the Fall Creators Update, and the big day is scheduled for October 17. Lenovo will be selling the Explorer in October though it hasn't confirmed an official launch date. The upcoming release will be the fourth major update to Windows 10, and it will still be focused on creating "a platform that inspires your creativity", explained Myerson.
