Windows 10 To See Big Changes With Its Free 'Anniversary Update'

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) is giving away a Windows 10 upgrade starting August 2. The free "anniversary update" of the company’s most popular OS version ever will include a suit of revamped browsing, gaming and security tools and apps.

However, users who have not installed Windows 10 on their devices will have to hurry up, as the free upgrade from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 will only be available until July 29. And, readers should take into account that installing Windows 10 is kind of a must for OS users, as this will be the last version Microsoft will launch. Instead of moving on to a Windows 11, the company will start releasing periodic updates for Windows 10.

  • Xbox One will allow sharing game processes between computers and consoles running Windows 10.
  • The Cortana virtual assistant will be smarter, the company assured, adding better device sync features.
  • Windows Defender will get smarter and more automated.
