Microsoft's Windows 10 October 2018 update is out now

Windows 10 October 2018 Update Available Today

Using app mirroring, you can mirror your entire Android phone on your Windows 10 computer - apps and all. You'll also be able to send SMS texts and group messages while typing on a keyboard using Your Phone, as you can now receive texts on your device and on the PC as well. Also, you will be able to mirror your Android phone to your PC desktop without any wire or installing any third-party app.

Windows Ink is the way Windows works with pen input and now there are new features in PowerPoint and Word to design more easily.

Microsoft has released the October 2018 update for Windows 10 that adds official support for DirectX Raytracing (DXR). This even works with documents too; if you have the Office apps on your phone, you can jump directly into whatever documents you were working on with a single tap on your phone.

Meanwhile, Microsoft has also provided details on how to get the Windows 10 October 2018 Update in another blog post. DXR introduces four new features that enable game builders to implement ray tracing into their upcoming and existing games. You can add as many tiles as you can and when you expand the folder, you'll see a new option to name it. The full list of changes is pretty long, so there's a good chance that something in the Windows October 2018 Update will tickle your fancy.

For those who want to download the update before then, manually checking for updates will allow you to begin the installation process before 9 October. We don't know the how short the schedule is this time: Microsoft will eventually start shipping new builds of the next Windows 10 version, previously codenamed Redstone 6 but now called 19H1. That's why M$ labeled themselves a devices and services company years ago around the time Windows 8/TIFKAM was forced onto M$'s OS end users. It's also possible to now download this version from Microsoft's Download Windows 10 website in ISO form. It was bought by Microsoft in 2016 and finally, it's coming to Windows starting with the October 2018 Update.

The issue is with the Intel Display Audio driver for some of those chips, and Microsoft notes that it may result in excessive processor usage, along with reduced battery life (the latter presumably because of the former, at least in part). Clever stuff. You can change settings for this in Settings System Clipboard. I suppose it's nice to have, especially if you're planning on upgrading to Nvidia's latest 20-series "RTX" graphics cards.
