Genshin Impact 2.2 update: All new events

We check out every event!

Genshin Impact’s latest update brings with it a slew of new events over the coming weeks, starting from October 13th. Alongside the current limited-time codes for 300 Prima gems and the upcoming new gacha rolls, the game is updating with a bevvy of new things to do, including some refreshes of older content.

In a vain attempt to completely mask the current disappointment, Genshin Impact is throwing the equivalent of sweets into our collective faces by introducing a whole new area, as well as three new quest lines.

Labyrinth Warriors Event

The whole 2.2 event is under the banner “Into the Perilous Labyrinth of Fog”, which will focus on the Labyrinth Warriors event. From the description and sounds of things, you’ll have to wade through a survival-esque area with ever surmounting odds, as you explore five different floors for rewards.

Two teams go in, with an attacking and defending team, so I suspect you’ll want to grab as many characters beforehand to ensure that you can do repeat goes without having to hang around and wait. Xinyan can also be invited to join your party.

The event isn’t just about surviving though, as you’ll be able to buff your characters with different Shikifuda to help even the odds as you climb each floor.

The rewards for the Labyrinth Warriors are:


Crown of Insight

Acension Materials

Talent Level-Up Materials

Mystic Enhancement Ore


EXP Materials

Shadow of the Ancients

This event centres around a new hulking Anomalous Model Ruin Grader, a boss character that needs to have extensive research put in to ensure a solid method of defeating it. The event is split into three different quests, where you’ll do your usual surveying the land for specific areas, a defence section as you try to charge data sampling spikes with electro attacks and finally, a showdown with the robot itself.

This fight will only end if all the electro spikes are activated, as the Grader will simply get back up and start fighting again if you happen to knock it down. There’s a lot of specific things to do for extra rewards – looks like your usual Mora and item affair – with 100 primogems up for grabs for beating the beast.

Tune to the World’s Sounds

You’ll be gifted a small Floral Zither by Kazuha and join different characters for songs across three different difficulties (Normal, Hard and Pro), for rewards at each level. These include Primogems, Mora, EXP, Talent and Mystic Ore materials.

This mode makes a return with additional updates, including long notes you need to hold down the button for and the sidekick that will join you.

Dreams of Bloom

Gardening takes the centre stage of this event, as you plant and meet requirements based on what you’ve grown for rewards. This includes your usual affair, but also Sakuya’s Special Gardening Package. You’ll then be able to take the plants and decorate your Teapot, as well as send them to friends.

Seeds not used in this event will be deleted from your account afterwards. Each seed can generate up to three types of flowers, so you’ll have to rely on the powers that be to get the right ones for whatever quest comes up.

Ley Line Overflow

Returning to Genshin Impact is the various material boost event that happens three times a day, the Ley Line Overflow event! Hooray! Grab tonnes of EXP and Mora to get your characters back up to speed for the brand new events happening in 2.2.

Hangout Events: Series 3

You can look forward to hanging out with two characters, including the new Thoma, as you discover more about their lives and stories in the world of Genshin Impact.

Creator Mode is available to all LinkedIn users.

Users who meet the following criteria can host audio events when Creator Mode is turned on:

An audience base of more than 150 followers and/or connections

Recent share of any type of content on the platform

A good standing record and a history of abiding by community policies.

In addition to audio events, Creator Mode grants access to live video streaming, newsletter publishing, profile videos, and post analytics.

Since its launch in March 2023, LinkedIn says 5.5 million users have turned on Creator Mode, which has led to a nearly 30% increase in content engagement by users.

Additional Information About LinkedIn Audio Events

Here are some additional details and features coming with the expansion of audio events on LinkedIn:

Audio Event attendees can now turn on captions for an event.

Improved discoverability of Audio Events by featuring relevant audio events in the My Network tab.

Windows 10 April 2023 Update (Version 1803): All The New Features And Changes

Windows 10’s April 2023 Update (version 1803) is the next major release  — codename Redstone 4 — delivering a new wave of features and improvements. In this guide, we’ll take a closer look at the new features and changes Microsoft is introducing for the fifth feature update of Windows 10 releasing in spring 2023 — which carries the “Windows 10 April 2023 Update” marketing name, instead of “Spring Creators Update,” which was rumored previously.

Windows 10 version 1803 release date: Microsoft has officially confirmed that the Windows 10 April 2023 Update (version 1803) will release on April 30, 2023, if you want to update using the Media Creation Tool and Update Assistant, then on May 8, the update will appear in Windows Update. (Usually, feature updates become available starting 2PM Eastern Time.) Initially, Microsoft will begin rolling out the update with its new features to select devices that are known to work with the new version, and then the rollout will expand to other devices.

For more details, check out all the Redstone 4 tutorials, info, and news, and everything we know thus far about the Redstone 5 development here. Also, check out the best 10 features coming to version 1803, those hidden features you have yet to discover, and this guide will help you avoid problems upgrading to the April 2023 Update.

Windows 10 October 2023 Update: Check out all the new features and improvements here.

Here’s everything you need to know as we continue to wait for the release of the next major OS update:

What’s new on desktop experience

You can also check out this walkthrough video with all the changes included in the new version of Windows 10:

Start menu

In this new update, the Start menu includes Reveal highlight, which is an interactive visualization that brings illumination to display hidden borders, helps you navigate, and interact with an app. You’ll see this feature while hovering items in the “All apps” list and Live Tiles.

In addition, the “Documents” and “Pictures” buttons will now appear pinned in the left rail by default.

Action Center

When using the dark theme option the “Clear all,” “Expand”/”Collapse,” and “See more,” the links text now use the current system accent color. In Addition, the “Clear all” text has been replaced for “Clear all notifications” to make clearer the action of the button.

Action Center now supports a two-finger touch gesture to dismiss all notifications.

If a notification doesn’t support being dismissed, the toast will now show an X instead of an arrow, and when writing a response in a notification and you dismiss it by accident, Action center will now save the draft automatically.

In addition, Action Center uses “am”/”pm” when indicating timestamp with the 12-hour clock format, rather than “a”/”p”.


On version 1803, the Cortana’s Notebook is getting a face lift that makes the experience easier to use and more responsive with tabs and card-based items. 

In the new experience, the Organizer tab is where you’ll now find lists and reminders, and the Manage Skills tab is where you can now change many of the Cortana settings.

The update also adds your account picture in the left rail to align the design with the Start menu experience.

Additionally, Cortana will now provide activities suggestions to resume tasks using Timeline.

Windows 10 introduces Cortana Collections with the Lists experience, a new feature that allows the assistant to save you time by “noticing and remembering things,” such as recipes, restaurants, books, movies and TV shows you want to watch, and things you shop online without you having to do anything.

Using Collections, as Cortana gathers these things, it’ll put them into an organized list that you can customize. Also, the feature learns as you use it, which means that items you don’t like may not appear in the future.

In order to make Cortana actions less confusing, instead of appearing in the Cortana app and Action Center, moving forward all Cortana’s proactive content that you may need to take action will only appear in Action Center.

With this change, the Cortana app now has more space to provide tips, assistance, and tools to make you more productive.

Desktop experience

The taskbar in the new version of Windows 10 isn’t getting major improvements, but now Microsoft has turned on the Fluent Design Acrylic material effect.

You’ll also find this effect in Clock & Calendar, Volume, Input, My People, and Share experience.

Game bar

Windows 10 introduces a new Game bar with a new design, easy-to-use settings, and new clock. Options to use dark, light, or current theme color. And new buttons to capture, turn on microphone and camera, and edit the title of your Mixer stream.

Nearby Sharing

In this update, you’ll also find a new feature called Nearby Sharing that allows you to share any type of files and web links with minimal efforts wirelessly to nearby devices using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connectivity (similar to Apple’s AirDrop feature).

The experience come enabled by default, and you can enable or disable it using the Quick action button in Action Center, or Share experiences page in the Settings app. (You can learn more about Nearby sharing in this guide.)

My People

In the new release of Windows 10, My People introduces a number of small tweaks, including:

Ability to drag and drop contacts to rearrange them when they’re pinned into the taskbar.

You are allowed to pin more than three contacts into the taskbar.

You can drop contacts in and out of the taskbar.

The experience has Acrylic material enabled by default.

You’ll now receive emotive notifications from any contact.

There’s a new animation to indicate that a contact is pinned in the overflow list in the flyout.

My People now suggests other apps you can connect to the experience.

Flyout now uses the current color scheme configured on the Colors settings.


Timeline is an expansion of Task View, and it’s a feature that allows you to find and resume activities you were working in the past. It could be from a previous activity you were working on your Windows 10 device, or another PC, Android, or iOS device connected to your Microsoft account. 

Basically, Timeline enhances Task View allowing you to pick up where you left off any activities in the last 30 days, as well as activities on apps that are currently running on your computer.

You can access Timeline with the new update Task View button in the taskbar. In the experience, you’ll see a list of running applications at the top, while your Timeline activities appears at the bottom sorted by day with two rows of activities.

Virtual Desktop isn’t going away on Windows 10 version 1803, you can still access the experience within Task View, but the button now appears in the top-left corner.

Here’s a full demonstration of Timeline on Windows 10:

Windows Hello

Windows Hello is now easier to set up. Instead of using the Settings app, you can now configure face, fingerprint, or PIN security with a new option available in the Lock screen under the Sign-in options link. Just select the authentication method you want to set up, enter your password, and follow the on-screen directions to set up Windows Hello.


Although Bluetooth pairing isn’t a complicated process, starting with version 1803 (April 2023 Update), Windows 10 will detect when a Bluetooth is in range and ready to pair and it’ll pop a toast notification with a Connect button to quickly complete the setup.

What’s new on Settings experience

On Windows 10 version 1803, the Settings app is getting an overhaul with a new homepage that includes smaller icons with titles aligned to the right. Sections now feature the Acrylic material effect on the left side, the home button is now a house icon, and a lot of other tweaks and improvements.

In addition, when using the light theme the Reveal highlight effect is more noticeable than before showing darker borders when hovering items, but it removes the Border Reveal effect on lists and tree views. You’ll not only see this in the Settings app, but across Windows 10 too.


Using the Display settings, it’s now possible to adjust the brightness of SDR content on HDR displays.

Also, there is a new Advanced display settings option, under the “Multi displays” section, that allows you to access more details about your monitor.

In the “Advanced scaling settings” page, there is a new Let Windows try to fix apps, so they’re not blurry option to allow Windows 10 to fix blurry applications automatically without having to sign out when changing settings, dock/undocking, and during a remote session.

Additionally, Microsoft has added a new Change high DPI settings option in traditional programs .exe file properties to override global high DPI settings.

The Display page also introduces a new Graphics settings section that includes customization options to manage preferences for apps on computers with multiple GPUs.

Using these settings, you can now configure an application to use a specific graphics processor, instead of Windows 10 deciding for you. According to Microsoft, this could help to save battery life or improve system performance.

You can manage graphics performance for classic and Microsoft Store apps, and once you add an app to the list, you can choose between three different options, including:

System Default: The system decides which GPU the app should use.

Power Saving: Runs an application in the GPU that uses the least power.

High performance: Runs an application with the most capable GPU.

These settings will always take precedence over other settings configure in other control panels. However, in some apps, you may need to change GPU settings within the app itself.


The Sound page is new to the “System” section, and it brings the most common sound settings to the Settings app. You cannot only control system volume and microphone, but you can also select the input and output devices and troubleshoot problems within this page.

You can use the new App volume and device preference page to adjust the master volume to changes all sounds. You can change the volume for Windows 10 and apps individually.

Quiet hours (Focus assist)

Quiet hours becomes Focus assist, and now, it has a new page in System, and while Focus assist has been a feature of Windows 10 for a long time, now it’s more customizable.

In this page, you’ll find options to turn off the experience, as well as the option to turn it on using priorities to allow certain notifications to break through your quiet hours. Additionally, there is an option to hide all your notifications, except for alarms.

Focus assist also introduces Automatic rules that allows you to select the time and activities when you don’t want to be disturbed and Focus assist will turn on automatically.

During these times — Sets schedule when Focus assist should turn on automatically.

When I’m duplicating my display — Turns on Focus assist automatically when duplicating the screen. For example, when giving a presentation.

When I’m playing games — Enable Focus assist automatically when playing games in full screen, but it only works with DirectX exclusive games.

Using automatic rules, you also get an option to show a summary of the activities you missed during your quiet hours on Action Center.


Priority only.

Alarms only.


The Storage page, under the “Storage sense” section, now includes a new Free up space now link that allows you direct access to the page to delete temporary files. Also, with this update, you can delete even more temporary files, including:

Windows upgrade log files.

System created Windows Error Reporting Files.

Windows Defender Antivirus.


Temporary files.

Recycle Bin.

Previous Windows installations.

Temporary Internet Files.

Device driver packages.

Delivery Optimization Files.

DirectX Shared Cache.


The Multitasking page isn’t getting major changes, but now includes an option to enable or disable suggestions in Timeline.

Share experiences 

The Share experiences page has been updated to accommodate the settings for the new Nearby sharing feature. Within the page, you can enable or disable the feature, configure permissions, and change the default location to save incoming files.


In the About page, you can now select and copy the computer name to the clipboard, and there’s a link to access System info.


The Typing page, in the Devices section, now includes the “Advanced keyboard settings” to customize a number of other settings, including the ability to switch input method, more touch keyboard settings, and Emoji panel.

Also, the page now includes options to configure text suggestions and autocorrect misspelled words as you type using a hardware keyboard. And there’s an option to enable multilingual text prediction. This new feature allows Windows 10 to provide suggestions of up to three different Latin script languages without having to switch your primary language. However, it’s only a feature available for the touch keyboard.

Pen & Windows Ink

The Pen & Windows Ink settings page includes a new option that allows you to change the font the system uses to convert your handwriting into actual text.


In the network adapter properties page, you’ll now find a link to access the Data usage page.

Data usage

The Data usage page is getting a number of tweaks with this release, including the ability to see more clearly an overview of data usage from the last 30 days. In addition, you can now set the data limit per adapter to help you avoid going over your data plan, and you get the option to restrict background data to reduce data usage.


If you have cellular connection (for example, 4G LTE), you’ll find that the Cellular page now lets you set connections priorities. For example, you can set your device to use a cellular connectivity instead when the wireless network around you is not reliable.

Apps & features

Inside the Apps & features page, you’ll find some interesting new improvements. For example, the Manage app execution aliases is a new page that allows you to decide if an app can used its declared alias that you can use to start with Command Prompt. This is particular useful if you have apps that happen to have the same alias.

In the Advanced settings for Microsoft Store apps, you can now manage a lot of options, including the ability to change app permissions and set an app as your new default. The Settings app also includes a new Terminate button that you can use to terminate the app and related processes if it’s not responding. Of course, the Reset and Uninstall options are still available. In addition, inside this page, you’ll be now able to find the version information about a particular app.


The Startup page is a new page in the “Apps” section that allows you to control which apps are allowed to run at startup, instead of having to use Task Manager. And you can also sort apps by name, status, and startup impact.

Startup tasks

In the Advanced options for Microsoft Store apps will now include a new Startup tasks feature that allows you to manage the tasks from an app that can run on startup. However, this is a new feature, and it’s up to the developer to implement. Otherwise, the option won’t be available.


The Fonts page is new, and it provides a new experience to manage fonts installed on your computer.


In the Taskbar page, you can now control more options about My People, including the ability to pin more contacts and disable suggestions of apps you can connect to the experience.

options

In the Sign-in options page for local accounts, Windows 10 now allows users to set security questions to recover their account from the Lock screen in case you forget your password.

As a result of this change, the process to create a new local account has changed, and now, you’ll asked to set up security questions during the creation of a new account.

Region & Language

In the Region & Language page, the experience has been updated to show whether a language supports text-to-speech, speech recognition, or handwriting using a new set of icons on the top-right.

You can also use the arrows to set a new language as your default, and perhaps more importantly the interface to install a new language has been redesigned.

Starting with this new release, Microsoft is making languages packs available through the Microsoft Store, and you can set display language and preferred languages individually.

Ease of Access

In the April 2023 Update, Ease of Access is getting numerous tweaks to make it easier to use depending on your requirements.

The settings are now divided into groups to help you see, hear, and interact with settings more quickly. Microsoft is even making settings easier to understand by renaming options and improving descriptions.


Ease of access brings common screen settings for faster configuration with the new Display page. For example, in this page, you now have the options to adjust scaling settings, change brightness, disable system animations and transparency, keep scrollbars always visible, and even an option to control notification time and disable the desktop background.

Cursor & pointer size

This new page is where users can now find the “change cursor thickness”, “Change pointer size and color”, and “Change touch feedback” settings.


In this page there are no new features, but you’ll notice that Magnifier no longer includes a list of shortcuts. Instead, the shortcuts will be display under their corresponding settings.

It’s now possible to change the voice volume and change the default audio output, and there’s a new “Emphasize formatted text” option that you can use.

The “Change how much content you hear” options have been updated to use toggle switches, and you’ll find a new drop-down menu to select the level of detail Narrator uses about text.

Lock the Narrator key so you don’t have to press it for each command.

At the bottom of the page, there’s an option to allow or deny Microsoft to collect diagnostic data about Narrator.

The Audio page is a new page that lets users control system volume, enable mono audio, and there is even a feature to show audio alerts visually.

Starting with this new version, the Notifications page has been renamed to Cortana across my devices, and there are two additional options:

Help me pick up where I left off on other devices — Allows Cortana to surface activities you can resume from other devices.

Get list suggestions — Allows the assistant to make suggestions and surface related updates about your lists.

Speech, inking, & typing 

The Speech, inking, & Typing page gets a new an addition page to view and clear the custom user dictionary, but the page doesn’t offer a way to add or remove words.

Diagnostics & feedback

The Diagnostics & feedback page now includes an option to review and delete the data that your device sends to Microsoft to improve the overall experience on Windows 10.

If you don’t have the app already installed, you’ll be directed to the Microsoft Store to get it. Once in the app, you’ll find all your telemetry data broken down in events using an JSON format.

Microsoft also collects typing data to improve next word prediction, spelling collection, and auto correction. However, if you don’t want the company collecting your typing data, you can now disable this option turning off the new Improve inking & typing recognition toggle switch.

Activity history

The Activity history page is new to Windows 10 April 2023 Update, and it’s the place to configure most of the options for Timeline. The page includes options to filter account activities in your timeline. You can prevent Windows from collecting activities on your device or syncing your activities to the cloud. And if something isn’t working correctly or you want to remove all the current activities, there’s a button to clear your activity history.

It’s worth noting that new users will have the “Let Windows sync my activities from this PC to the cloud” option cleared by default. If you don’t enable this option, you’ll only see four days of activities in your timeline — rather than 30 days.

Additional Privacy settings

The Privacy section in the Settings app divides settings into two groups called “Windows permissions” and “App permissions.”

The Documents, Pictures, and Videos pages have been incorporated to let you control which apps can access your files. Also, moving forward, if an app needs access to your files, you’ll be prompted to allow or deny this permission. In addition, there’s a new File System page to allow or deny apps access to all your files, including those in the Documents, Pictures, Videos, and OneDrive folders.

Windows Update Windows Security

The Windows Defender page is being renamed to Windows Security, and now, it provides access to the different areas of security guarded by Windows Defender.

What’s new on input experience

Windows 10 is also improving the way you use input devices, whether you use natural handwriting using a pen or typing using the touch keyboard.

Touch keyboard

Starting with version 1803, the touch keyboard experience is getting Acrylic — the new transparent element part of the Fluent Design System. It now supports the standard keyboard layout for all languages.

It expands the shape-writing feature previously available only with the one-handed keyboard to the wide keyboard.

Also, the touch keyboard now supports split layout, and there’s a new animation when launching or dismissing the keyboard.

Handwriting panel

The handwriting experience is also receiving a number of tweaks, including improved correction recognition and insertion gesture (to add space between words or letters).

Windows 10 incorporates a new gesture so you can automatically commit your text and clear out the text in the handwriting panel. In addition, the gesture to insert space between characters and words has been changed to a caret, and the handwriting panel commits writing at a 90-degree angle.

When using a digital stylus, you’ll find a new embedded handwriting panel designed to handle writing in text boxes. The new experience will appear automatically when tapping a supported text field, including on search and other text boxes. Also, because this panel is based on the main handwriting panel, you can use the same functionalities.

Emoji panel

Windows 10 updates the design of its emojis, and brings emojis to 150 more languages, including English (Great Britain), French (France), German (Germany), Spanish (Spain), and more. This will help you get the emoji you want easily and quickly. 

What’s new on the system experience Microsoft Fluent Design system

Windows 10 softens the light press effect based on feedback, and enables Reveal by default in CalendarView (Clock and Calendar flyout).

The Volume, Input, Share, My People, and taskbar now uses Acrylic material.

Boot experience

In the April 2023 Update, the Lock screen will now show you your screen personalization (e.g., Windows Spotlight, Cortana, Calendar, and Mail) if you don’t sign and wait for a few seconds.

Windows Shell improvements

The new update also continues to improve the Windows Shell experience on mixed-PDI monitor setups, language, Start menu, and People feature.

Eye Control Additional changes with Windows 10

Apps registered to restart on restart or after a shutdown will only occur if “Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting my device after an update or restart” option is enabled in the Sign-in options settings page.

Starting with Windows 10 version 1803, HomeGroup is getting deprecated, as Microsoft wants users to use modern sharing tools like OneDrive, Share, and Nearby Sharing.

Windows 10 S users can now finish setting up their device without entering their password using the Authenticator mobile app. Furthermore, if the user also configures Windows Hello, password will no longer be an option throughout the Windows 10 experience — no in the Lock screen, nor in the Settings app.

Windows 10 Pro for Workstations only: In order to provide the absolute maximum performance, Windows 10 is introducing a new power policy in Control Panel called Ultimate Performance, which is based on the current High-Performance policy, but it goes a step further to eliminate micro-latencies associated with fine grained power management techniques. (The Ultimate Performance power policy is currently not available on battery powered systems.)

On Windows 10 version 1803, you will see for Windows 10 Pro for Workstations productivity and enterprise focused applications in place of consumer applications and games.

Windows 10 Enterprise: Starting with the spring update, there is a new feature that will enable enterprises to run their custom actions/scripts synchronously with setup. The setup will execute custom actions during two update phases controlled by using chúng tôi or chúng tôi In addition, Windows 10 can now run post rollback scripts in system context, and Microsoft is enabling /postrollback scripts to run in admin context or system context.

Even further, starting with this new version, you’ll see an updated experience to choose your privacy settings during the installation process. These new changes are aimed to make it easier to select the privacy settings that best suits your needs, and it also offers two new options, including Inking & Typing and Find my device to prevent Microsoft from collecting these data.

However, not everyone will see the same layout during setup. Some users will have to review their settings on a single screen (above image), while others will get independent screens, and some people will have up to seven individual screens to review each setting.

Microsoft Edge’s Windows Defender Application Guard introduces a few new changes, including performance improvements, and now it’s possible to download files from a WDAG session, but this option must be enable manually, and it’s only available for Windows 10 Enterprise.

When a process in Task Manager is suspended, or has suspended child processes, you’ll see an icon in the “Status” column of the “Processes” tab.

The April 2023 Update also introduces the High Efficiency Image File Format (HEIF), which is an image container that uses modern codecs like HEVC to improve quality, compression, and capabilities compared to earlier formats like JPEG, GIF, and PNG. In addition, this file format supports encoding image sequences, image collections, auxiliary images like alpha or depth maps, live images, video, audio, and HDR for improved contrast.  

Microsoft Edge

April 2023 Update also delivers an improved version of Microsoft Edge with an updated dark theme that offers improved contrast, darker blacks, icons, and text.

Starting with the Redstone 4 update, Microsoft Edge is debuting with a new reading experience for EPUB, PDF, and Reading View.

Furthermore, when reading EPUB books or using Reading View, you can use the new “Grammar Tools” with tools aimed to help you better comprehend text by breaking down words into syllables, and highlight verbs, nouns, and adjectives.

The Microsoft Edge InPrivate experience now support extensions (but you need to allow extensions manually), and autofill for saved passwords.

Microsoft Edge finally brings support for Service Workers, and Push and Cache APIs to allow new experiences, such as the ability to view websites and access services offline, refresh data in the background even if Edge is closed, and send notifications. In addition, the browser now includes its Web Media Extensions plug-in by default to allow support for open formats (for example, Theora and OGG Vorbis).

The navigation, tab, and actions buttons and across the experience you’ll now find the Reveal highlight effect. Using a precision touchpad, you can now pinch-to-zoom or panning websites with two fingers. The EPUBs and PDFs experiences include improvements to help users open, load, and navigate books with assistive technology. And the browser also supports EPUB Media Overlays allowing better customization, such as custom audio and highlight styles.

Finally, developers can now dock the DevTools vertically, and make use of the CSS extensions support for OpenType Font Variations.

You can also check the official Microsoft Edge support website for extra and more technical details on the changes coming to the web browser.

Windows Defender

The default antivirus on Windows 10 is now getting Windows Defender Application Guard, which is a security feature that isolates pages you’re viewing on Microsoft Edge from each other and from Windows to provide an extra layer of security against zero-day attacks and malware.

Windows 10 April 2023 Update also introduces changes to the Windows Defender Security Center app. In this new version, the app has an updated Home page that removes antivirus information and adds status and alerts for two new areas of protection, including “Account protection” and “Device security.”

In the Virus & threat protection page, you won’t find new features, but the app moves its “Controlled folder access” settings to a new page called Ransomware protection, which should help to make clear the function of the feature.

The Account protection page encourages password users to set up Windows Hello Face, fingerprint, or PIN for a more secure and faster sign-in experience. In addition, devices with Dynamic lock will generate alerts to inform users if the feature stops working. (If you don’t want to get Dynamic lock alerts, you can disable notifications in the app’s settings page.)

In the Device security page, you’ll find security status and additional security features you can configure on your device depending on its hardware.

Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL)

WSL on Windows 10 version 1803d can now run mixed instances (elevated and not elevated) of Linux, and it’s possible for process to run in the background even after the console is closed.

The Windows Subsystem for Linux introduces support when connected using Enter-PSSession, OpenSSH, VPN, or other remote access tools. There’s a new chúng tôi file that you can edit to load additional functionalities when you start the console. Windows apps can now talk you the Linux layer using Unix sockets. And NTFS includes a new option for folders to makes its content case sensitive to allow Windows apps properly open files with the same name where the only difference is the case.

Editor’s note: This guide includes features and improvements that appeared until Windows 10 build 17134. It should be noted that this guide focuses on features for consumers, as Microsoft is also adding other features aimed for enterprises, which aren’t included here.

Thursday’s Best Deals: Airpods Max Fall To New All

All of today’s best deals kick off with a new all-time low on AirPods Max, which are joined by some post-Prime Day AirPods Pro deals from $170. That’s alongside quite the notable price cut on Apple’s official MagSafe charger at $20. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

AirPods Max deal delivers a new all-time low

Amazon is currently offering Apple’s AirPods Max for $489 in several styles. While you’ll typically pay $549, today’s offer delivers $60 in savings while undercutting our previous mentions by $10 to mark a new all-time low. Not only is this discount under our Prime Day mention, but it’s still a rare chance to score the hi-fi cans for less than retail. 

Apple’s new AirPods Max bring many of the features that have been staples in its true wireless earbuds to an over-ear design that’s backed by the H1 chip. Alongside stellar active noise cancellation and support for spatial audio, you’re also looking at 20-hour playback, Hey Siri support, and a premium design comprised of aluminum, a knit-mesh canopy, and memory foam ear cushions. We found them to be a compelling, yet pricey offering in our hands-on review, though today’s deal certainly helps with the latter.

Go with AirPods Pro instead

But if the more premium price tag and over-ear fit aren’t doing much for you, post-Prime Day discounts have also arrived on AirPods Pro for those who missed out earlier in the week. Right now at Woot, you can score the flagship Apple earbuds for $190. Those who don’t mind going the certified refurbished route can pocket even more savings with the price dropping to $170 at Best Buy. In either case, these are down from the original $249 going rate to mark some of the best prices of the year. 

AirPods Pro provide many of the same features noted above like ANC, Hey Siri, and Spatial Audio, but with an in-ear, true wireless design that’s backed by Apple’s H1 chip. The audio fidelity isn’t going to be nearly as good as with AirPods Max, but the portability will be convenient for students or commuters.

Apple’s official MagSafe charger drops to $20

Trusted eBay seller A4C is currently offering Apple’s official MagSafe Charger in open-box condition for $20. Normally you’d pay $39 with today’s offer beating Amazon’s competing discount by $14 to mark the best price we’ve seen to date. For comparison, the lowest we’ve seen on a new condition model is $30. If you picked up one of Apple’s latest handsets last fall or anytime since, the new MagSafe Charger is certainly worth bringing into your kit.

As the brand’s take on wireless charging, this accessory elevates the experience by providing all of the perks of a cable with the convenience of not having to plug anything in. It magnetically snaps onto the back of your device in order to provide 15W of power to an iPhone 12 series handset.

Apple’s Smart Folio for prev-gen iPad Pro hits lowest prices yet from $59

Those rocking Apple’s latest iPad Air or previous-generation 11-inch iPad Pro can also save on the compatible Apple Smart Folio, with Amazon dropping the price to $50. Down from the usual $79 going rate, today’s offer is $4 under our previous mention and marking a new all-time low. You’ll find a nearly identical feature set here as on the lead deal, just with support for the 11-inch models in Apple’s iPad lineup.

Arlo Pro 3 HomeKit Floodlight Camera returns to low at $179

Amazon is offering the Arlo Pro 3 HomeKit 2K Floodlight Camera for $179 in both black and white. Normally $249, today’s discount matches the all-time low we’ve tracked only a few times before, including on Prime Day. You’ll find that this camera doesn’t just boast 2K video recording capabilities, but also features a built-in floodlight to illuminate an area. When using battery power, it shines up to 2,000-lumens into your yard. However, should you plug it in, then it can offer up to 3,000-lumens of brightness. It ties into Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant, and more for a well-rounded smart home experience, as well. You can learn more in our hands-on review.

Google To Launch New Doorway Pages Webspam Update

Will this be Google’s biggest algorithm update of the year so far?

Importance: [rating=4]

Recommended link: Google’s official announcement – ‘An update on Doorway pages’

Wow, this seems a strange one! It feels like back to the 1990s when Doorway pages were a common SEO technique to get ranked in Altavista which was popular before Google even launched. When Google launched in 1998, their push to create more relevant results soon saw them outlaw Doorway pages and issue webmasters guidance to avoid them. So a definite sense of Déjà vu for me and many other search marketers I’m sure!

I’ve rated this alert as 4 out of 5 since although this webspam penalty is clearly aimed at targeting SEO spammers, there is always the risk of false positives from companies who are looking to practice ethical SEO. Google has issued a warning on their Webmasters Tools blog and updated their definition of doorway pages, so it’s worth getting familiar with their definition of a doorway page to see whether your business could be a ‘false positive’ and keeping a careful eye on organic traffic levels to different types of pages across your site in analytics in the weeks ahead.

What marketers need to know about The Doorway page update

“Doorways are sites or pages created to rank highly for specific search queries. They are bad for users because they can lead to multiple similar pages in user search results, where each result ends up taking the user to essentially the same destination. They can also lead users to intermediate pages that are not as useful as the final destination”.

For false positives, I’m concerned about this part of the definition .

“…sites or pages created to rank highly for specific search queries”. The question here is how does this type of page differ from a category page deliberately optimised for SEO which aims to get visitors on to other product or content pages?

Here are some examples of doorway page practices given by Google to help explain it:

Having multiple domain names or pages targeted at specific regions or cities that funnel users to one page

Pages generated to funnel visitors into the actual usable or relevant portion of your sites

 Substantially similar pages that are closer to search results than a clearly defined, browseable hierarchy”

So, reading between the lines, pages which could get a penalty are: Pages that link to other parts of the site using a list, with little other content to add value through additional content;  Pages that are not part of a hierarchy – which can be the case with AdWords landing pages.

Google seems likely to use similar signals to Panda for ‘thin content’ that show that users are not engaging with these pages including low dwell time or even low levels of links or social shares. Indeed Google specifically mentions Doorway pages in its update page discussing manual penalties for pages with thin content or no added value.

2. The doorway page approach may be part of other sites. The announcement specifically mentions affiliates and separate domains, so it seems this could be targeted specifically at affiliates (who of course indirectly compete with Google AdWords).

3. Landing pages targeting local search results may be at risk. The new definition of doorway pages specifically calls these out. It’s quite common still to see boilerplate pages with auto-generated keywords which are ‘doorway pages’ for local businesses with a national network, e.g. car rental, however, they usually provide relevant content on the page, so should be legit. As has been pointed out in Local Search Forum, Google uses a similar approach in their ‘Get Your Business Online’ campaign.

4. Update Coming real soon now’. This is likely a change to watch for over the next few weeks rather than days judging by the long warning about Google SEO Google’s official turn of phrase is “we’ll soon launch a ranking adjustment. which doesn’t give much to go on/

5. There is no ‘cool’ name for this update (yet) – I think it will probably remain the “Doorway Page update’ – no other name necessary surely – works better than Pigeon or Hummingbird.

How do you see this update – do you think there is a risk of false positives? Which other types of legit pages could be harmed, e.g. on Ecommerce sites?

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Announced With New Features

It’s official, Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is the name for the next major update of Windows, and it’s expected to arrive in September. You read it correctly, instead of using a different name, Microsoft is using “Creators Update” again as part of the new name.

The Fall Creators Update is the fourth feature update Windows 10 is receiving since it was first released two years ago, and it’s focus on adding new experiences and expanding functionalities to iOS and Android devices.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update new features

Here are the new features that Microsoft announced during the conference:

Fluent Design System

Starting with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, Microsoft is introducing a new design language officially known as “Microsoft Fluent Design System” (formerly known as Project Neon). This new design language will be integrated into the OS and apps, and according to Microsoft, it’ll deliver a more intuitive, responsive, and inclusive cross-device experiences and interactions.

In other words, Windows 10 and apps will just look prettier with new translucent, blur, and animation effects.

Microsoft Graph

Microsoft has finally realized that most Windows 10 users will use many devices from different platforms, and the Fall Creators Update will make sure Windows 10 plays well with those devices. You’ll see this approach with new features like Timeline, pick up where I left off, OneDrive Files on Demand, and Clipboard that will leverage Microsoft Graph to bring devices together.


The Taskbar Task View is now evolving and becoming Timeline. This is a new feature that displays tasks you’re doing previously, and quickly pick up on that file, app, or website in real-time.


Pick up where you left off was first introduced with the Windows 10 Creators Update, and now it’ll be available across devices, including Windows, Android, and iOS devices.


Microsoft has teasing a cloud-powered clipboard for a long time, and now it’ll be coming with the Fall Creators Update. Clipboard is just an easy way to copy and paste anything across devices. For example, you can copy a piece of text on your desktop and paste it on your phone.

OneDrive File on Demand

On the next feature update, Windows 10 will finally bring placeholders back to OneDrive, but under the “OneDrive File on Demand” name. Just like before, this feature allows you to access files in the cloud without having to download them to your computer. OneDrive will also be smart enough to predict which files you’re going to need, and it’ll download them automatically on your computer.

Story Remix

Story Remix is a new experience part of the Photos app that will be available in the Windows Store, and it’ll allow users to quickly and easily create videos of photos and other videos, just like it was possible with Windows Movie Maker.

The new app using artificial intelligence and machine learning to automatically find relevant content on your collections to create video stories with soundtrack, theme, and transitions. You’ll be able to keep the suggested videos, delete, or edit them to your liking.

You’ll also be able to use Remix 3D and Paint 3D in your Story Remix project to add 3D, animations, and effect to your movies. It’s even possible to pin objects or draw into scenes, similar to how Snapchat’s new augmented reality lenses work.

Windows Store

Microsoft has also announced that the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will bring a number of new apps to the Windows Store, including iTunes with complete support for iPhone and other Apple devices on any Windows 10 and Windows 10 S devices.

Autodesk will expand support Windows Mixed Reality bringing its 3D game engine and real-time rendering software, Stingray to the Store. And SAP will be bringing its SAP Digital Boardroom app to the Store as well.

Linux on Windows

While you can already use Bash on Ubuntu on Windows 10, the Fall Creators Update will bring SUSE Linux, and Fedora Linux, which you’ll be able to download from the Store.

Mixed Reality

In addition, the company will be shipping a set of new motion controllers to use with new experience with no markers required. This means that the controllers are standalone devices, and you won’t need to install sensors around the wall to use Windows Mixed Reality.

Wrapping things up

As you can see there is a lot that Microsoft is planning to deliver with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Although the company hasn’t specify the exact release day, we’re expecting the next feature update to arrive some time in September.
