Windows-10-Anniversary-UpdateShort Bytes: Microsoft’s Windows 10 Anniversary Update has been released on August 2. The update is now available via the Windows Update and as ISO using the Windows Media Creation tool.

Microsoft’s year-long free Windows 10 upgrade push ended last week. It was a mixture of troughs and crests. Redmond faced various lawsuits and they managed to get Windows 10 installed on around 350 million computers before the campaign ended on July 29.

Anyways, all’s well that ends well. Now, it is time to focus on the Windows 10 Anniversary Update by Microsoft. Launch on August 2, the Windows 10 Anniversary Upgrade has brought some visible changes to the operating system.

Windows Ink Workspace is a new sight on the Windows 10 OS along with a new job assigned to the voice assistant Cortana. It replaces the traditional search after the Anniversary Update. Also, the Anniversary Upgrade offers enhanced security features for home and enterprise customers and a better Microsoft Edge browser. Microsoft’s Windows Hello is also introduced for apps and some improvements will be made to Windows Defender.
