How to Download the Windows 10 October 2018 Update Now

Microsoft Launcher 5.0 for Android brings new Feed UI, Timeline support, and more Windows 10 app mirroring brings your Android apps to your desktop

They also announced the availability of the big October Windows 10 update that prepares the OS for what could be a really important new feature: Android app mirroring. You can pair your smartphone to the app and gets instant access to your photos or send and receive text messages directly from your desktop. However, it isn't yet clear if Microsoft will be adding more features for iOS users.

At Microsoft's Surface event today, the company revealed a new service called Windows 10 app mirroring. The new feature will let you jump from your PC's edge browser to the scroll through the same content on your phone and vice versa and also works with documents. There's an updated screen snipping tool based on the already built-in Win+Shift+S command from Windows 10, but you can customize where the clips go and what you do with them.

"You don't have to do anything to get the update; it will roll out automatically to you through Windows Update", the company said in a blog post.

Samsung also has a Continuum-like feature DeX, allowing the phone to act as an ersatz PC once a keyboard and display are attached. Using your digital pen and a touch-enabled Windows device, you can now add a task to your list using ink, and then strike out when complete. The updated game bar will offer better audio customization, easier-to-use capture tools, and the ability to block Windows Update from interrupting your gaming session (maybe there is a god after all?). You can do this by searching for and launching the "Check for updates" section of System Settings from the Search box.

You should see the Windows 10 October Update hitting your PC right now, or very soon - check now and it should even be there, ready. Continuum died when Microsoft deprecated Windows 10 Mobile. Microsoft says now we will get a consistent user experience across all platforms. It's also coming to Android phones, too via Microsoft Launcher. This would be a worthwhile service for certain types of programs which aren't now available on Microsoft's Windows Store. I suppose it's nice to have, especially if you're planning on upgrading to Nvidia's latest 20-series "RTX" graphics cards. That patch is usually rolled out in stages, but you can speed up the process by installing it forcibly here. Using your digital pen you can quickly snip and share a screenshot using a new toolbar: Windows+Shift+S brings it up.
