5 best features from the Windows 10 Spring Update

Computing
Windows 10 just got some new features as part of the Spring Creator's Update. I'll take you through five of my favorite features and show you how to use them. So to see if you have the new update you need to press Windows key and R, and type winver. Press enter and if you see version [UNKNOWN] you are good to go. There is now a way to mute individual tabs in the Microsoft edge browser, so all you have to do, is that if you have a bunch of tabs open, look for this speaker icon on the top left. Click it once and it will automatically mute it nice and easy. If you're familiar with how Airdrop works on Apple devices, then you'll know exactly how nearby sharing works. You can share files and links between PCs, as long as they have spring creator's update and Bluetooth turned on. So to turn on nearby sharing, you need to go to settings. System and shared experiences and turn it on. You can also set your share and receive privacy settings here as well. Now, if you go to share a file from the explorer or edge, for example, you'll see this interface with nearby devices you can send to. Focus assist is the new name for quiet hours, which is basically another way of saying a do not disturb mode. In settings, go to system and choose focus assist. You can set up some rules like turning on the do not disturb mode during evening hours or while you are playing a game. When it's set up to your liking you can open the notification center and tap on focus assist to turn it on or off. Priority only disables notifications except for the people or apps on your list, while alarms only does exactly what the name suggests. Timeline lets you go back in time to resume working on something that you opened in the past 30 days, like a photo or a document. When you hit the Windows key and tab or the task icon next to Cortana, this screen pops up and you'll see the apps you have open at the moment and a history underneath. Just click on one to open it up and resume where you left off. Timeline is on by default, but you can turn it off by going to Settings, Privacy and then Activity history. diagnostic isn't very sexy, but it is important and it helps you choose what is sent back to Microsoft. Go to settings, privacy, diagnostics and feedback. You can choose to send back basic or full information. These are only grayed out because I'm using the Insiders' Program. Then further down you'll see an option to delete all of the data that's being collected. I've just started to scratch the surface with some of the new Windows 10 features. But for a full update, go to CNET.com. [MUSIC]
