New Windows 10 build silences Cortana, brings passwordless accounts

New Windows 10 build silences Cortana, brings passwordless accounts

I mean, sure, these numbers could flip again, but with new Windows PCs/laptops being nearly exclusively sold with 10 pre-installed, software sellers generally pushing 10 over 7, and Microsoft due to finally end official support for 7 in 2020, it doesn't look good for The Resistance. Yet despite the free upgrade offers and Microsoft's pushy, occasionally malware-like tactics to get people to move to its newest OS, Windows 7 retained the larger market share, mostly due to its popularity among enterprise users.

You can create one password-less account through Microsoft apps such as Word on your smartphone.

Once set up, Windows Hello (or a PIN, if you lack the compatible camera or fingerprint hardware) can be used to sign in without need for a password.

The Narrator app that reads out text is also getting some improvements. Then go to Accounts Family & other Users "Add someone else to this PC". This is facilitated in Narrator Settings, using the Add More Voices option.

For easier navigation, you can now tab between all the main actions on Narrator Home, such as Quick Start and Settings.

There are also improvement in the reading of controls while navigating and editing, table reading in PowerPoint, reading and navigating with Chrome, and interacting with Chrome menus.

However, the fix hasn't been brought to the October 2018 Update and has not been listed as a known issue.

If you were seeing Windows Defender Application Guard and Windows Sandbox fail to launch on Build 18305 with KB4483214 installed, that will be fixed once you upgrade to this build.

Microsoft continues to push toward its vision of a passwordless future.

The report also claims that more than 700 million devices now run on Windows 10. With Build 18305, we announced support for setting up and signing in to Windows with a phone number account, without having to create, or deal with the hassle of a password for Insiders using Home edition.

Windows Hello biometric login could soon be the key to all your favorite websites.

For you, it means that the Administrator account will deactivate if it has been previously activated.

The other important factor here is that Microsoft's extended support window for Windows 7 closes on January 14th, 2020 - just over a year from now.

It was introduced last month for Windows 10 Home to all editions of the operating system.
