Windows has been one of the mobile operating systems and one of the Microsoft's mobile version is now announcing that Windows 10 Mobile is now finally coming on selected Windows Phone 8.1 devices. It is one of the most anticipated updates for Windows 10 as it is expected to pack several new features while bringing improvements to the existing ones.

Microsoft is also looking to pitch Windows 10 as a gaming environment with the long-planned Windows 10 Game Mode, which promises to dedicate more system resources to PC games.

The Windows 10 Creators Update adds plenty of cool stuff including the exciting-as-it-sounds Paint 3D - yup, the classic creative tool has had a major overhaul and it's really rather splendid.

Ford recalls grow to almost 500000 vehicles
In May 2014, Ford recalled 692,700 Escape SUVs from the 2013-2014 model years because their doors didn't latch properly. The recalled vehicles include the 2014 Escape, 2014-2015 Fiesta ST, 2013-2014 Fusion and 2013-2015 Transit Connect.

It's unclear when this loophole will be closed but, with Windows 10 Creators Update launching on 11 April, it's likely Microsoft will pull the plug then. Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, and Lenovo will ship the world's first Windows Mixed Reality-enabled headsets with the Creators Update, starting at affordable $299 United States dollars later this year.

"Among other new browser enhancements, you can personalize Edge with a variety of "extensions", including a Pinterest Pin It Button, Amazon Assistant (surfacing deals), and a Translator" extension that lets you translate Web pages in more than 50 languages.

Perhaps most interestingly, third-party app developers can now build Cortana support into their applications. Ahem - even if you never actually decide to use it. While it might seem like the Creators Update isn't as massive an update as it could be, chances are you'll be noticing new things for weeks after pulling the trigger on the upgrade (notice how the Command Prompt has been replaced with PowerShell in the Start menu context menu in the shot below?).

All participants should be at the park at least 15 minutes before their start time and bring a bag or basket to collect eggs. Children can enjoy crafts, games, swimming, inflatable bounce house and pictures with the Easter Bunny.

One of the more popular additions will be the mini-view, which will let you float windows like videos or Skype calls on your desktop while you work or browse the internet.

"With Beam, you don't just watch your favorite game streams, you can chat, interact and participate with streamers and community in entirely new ways", Microsoft says. Once you've enabled your PC to use Game Mode in System Settings, you can apply it to any game. While that already happens to a some degree on PCs, Game Mode is created to do a better job of it. Windows Insiders have already been playing with earlier versions of the Creators Update for months. Defending the free upgrade Microsoft described it as "a choice created to help people take advantage of the most secure, and most productive Windows". If you can't wait, you can join the Insider Preview program and experience the Windows 10 Creators Update right away. A quick click opens the sidebar, allowing you to restore individual tabs, or bring everything back at once.

In addition, the Creators Update will allow users to live stream the games that they're playing to Beam, a service Microsoft acquired past year. Creators Update facelifts the Settings menu by revisiting the troubleshooting options.
