Microsoft will launch the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update on October 17th

Terry Myerson, head of the Windows group at Microsoft, promised that this fourth update to Windows 10 would be the best yet. Now with the Fall Creators Update, it is adding View 3D to allow users to view mixed reality creations on their screen, provided they have a camera. Files are retrieved from OneDrive whenever the user needs them. The Fall edition of this Creators Update is the 2nd installment major update for Windows 10 after the April one. Users should expect each feature update to receive 18 months of support before Microsoft require users to be on a current release in order to continue receiving updates and support.

Acer and HP will come out with Mixed Reality headsets before the holidays and Asus will release one next spring.

"We are working with an incredible set of partners to bring the most immersive experiences to the Windows Store", Klipman said. 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.

Lastly, with the Fall Creators Update, we are enabling you to immerse yourself in a new reality, the world of Windows Mixed Reality.

But the big additions are gaming and mixed reality - check out our review here.

Most enhancements will be to Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) - Microsoft's threat detection and protection service that is part of Windows 10 Enterprise, and which will bundle together Defender Application Guard (WDAG), Windows Defender Device Guard, and Windows Defender Antivirus.

If you are using Windows 10 1511 within an organization, Microsoft terminated support at the end of July, so you should be on a supported release such as 1607 or 1703.
