The latest Xbox One update readies the console for Windows 10 game streaming and backwards compatibility. Microsoft has released a new software update for the Xbox One, applying some subtle background changes to the system in preparation for the launch of Windows 10. The tweak is also said to enhance the backwards compatibility feature announced at E3 2015 and that is currently available to Xbox One Preview Program Members. Microsoft have confirmed that this update contains “no user-facing features” and that the company is committed to the UI overhaul that will be arriving later this year. Since the launch of the Xbox One, Microsoft has shown a committed attitude towards integrating Windows 10 with the console. This is in part so that users find it easier to access content across a range of devices: streaming games and sharing libraries on multiple platforms, for example. “We’ll treat gaming on Windows 10 with the same passion we’ve put into the Xbox Console", said Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft's Xbox division. “We have to put the gamer at the centre of every experience.” Xbox One titles such as Killer Instinct and Gears of War: Ultimate Edition are also coming to Windows 10, Spencer confirmed at E3 earlier this year.

Windows 10 Build 10166 puts bugs in its sights

 

Microsoft’s fast-and-furious round of updates continues this week with Build 10166, now available to Insiders with Windows 10 Preview and Fast Ring updates enabled. Gabe Aul, in a post on Blogging Windows, said this new update keeps up the focus on bug-fixes and stability found in those released last week. “ This build is all about bug fixing and fit-and-finish,” he wrote, while encouraging those using the build to use the Windows Feedback feature to provide information about any glitches or bugs encountered. Unlike most builds, this one is flanked by a release of the Windows 10 SDK Preview. The SDK, or System Developer’s Kit, provides tools for building Windows 10 software. The new edition of the SDK also focuses on bugs and general improvements, and includes new “getter properties” related to email applications. Build 10166 also has a special feature for those few Insiders living in the Seattle area, Microsoft’s home territory. Those users can try purchasing paid Wi-Fi access directly through the Microsoft Wi-Fi app, now available in the Windows Store. The app is meant to make it easier for anyone on-the-go to find and buy access to reliable, secure Wi-Fi. The app accepts payment from credit and debit cards, Microsoft Gift Cards, Paypal and certain wireless carriers. Gabe Aul finished his Blogging Windows post by saying “now is definitely the time to upgrade to the most current build” if you’re still using an older version. Build 10166 is the newest available from the Fast Ring, and 10162 is the newest available for the Slow Ring and .ISO download...Full detains available at windows10newsinfo forum.

 
Windows Media Player Will Live On In Windows 10 PDF Print E-mail

For now Windows 10 is ready to make its debut later this month, with Microsoft having updated several areas of the upcoming OS. Windows Media Player, though is not one of them. In fact, along with tab support for File Explorer, Windows Media Player remains one of the two big feedback requests from the community that Microsoft has ignored — users have been asking for a new version for a long time now. In the Windows Feedback app, for example, the request for a new Windows Media Player has seen in excess of 5,000 votes, with the suggestion reading: “We need a new Windows Media Player. Most people install other players like MPC and VLC because of the lack of codec support and features. WMP should have a playlist that can be detached as a separate window. There is a host of codecs it doesn’t support and although it now supports MKV, its level of support is very basic. It doesn’t support multiple audio streams and so far I’ve yet to be able to display subtitles.” Fair concerns, all of them. However, Redmond is in no mood to act on this, and design a more powerful solution for playing and managing multimedia files. The application will receive a few tweaks here and there, though none of them will be significant in any way. But for the most part, Windows Media Player will live on in Windows 10. For now.

How to Configure Windows 10 to Protect Your Privacy PDF Print E-mail

When you first get a new Windows computer (or set up an old one), you might be focused on downloading your favorite apps and transferring your files. This is also a good time to configure your machine to protect your privacy. We all need to protect our private data. Whether you’re carrying sensitive work files, sensitive pictures, or just your passwords, there’s certain information you don’t want other people to have. When you’re first setting up a computer, you’re establishing the habits you’re going to use the entire time you have that machine. Rather than wait to care about your privacy later, it’s better to get started on the right foot. First, a disclaimer: with Windows 10 coming out at the end of the month, we decided it’s best to write this guide as it pertains to Windows 10. Many of these settings, where applicable, still exist in Windows 8, but they may be in a different location or have slightly different names. In fact, even in the newest versions, settings are often duplicated in multiple places within the OS, but we’ll cover it the best we can. It’s also worth mentioning that Windows still allows you to install any app you want. Once they’re installed, those apps can do pretty much anything. Locking down your privacy in Windows won’t do much if you install other apps that can still read your data.

Windows 10 likely to land at PC makers this week PDF Print E-mail

Microsoft keeps wending its way past the mile markers en route to getting Windows 10 out to the public on time. The software titan is putting the finishing touches on the operating system software and will finalize its prerelease development by July 10, The Verge is reporting, citing people who claim to have knowledge of the company's plans. This version of Windows 10, called "release to manufacturing," will then be sent to PC makers to be bundled into their products. Windows 10, which is slated to launch on July 29, is Microsoft's big opportunity to make up for the missteps of Windows 8, which arrived three years ago. While Windows overall remains the dominant force in desktop operating systems, running on over 90 percent of computers worldwide, according to NetMarketShare, Windows 8 dramatically failed to catch on with consumers and businesses -- it has mustered just 13 percent market share worldwide, far behind the 61 percent share for Windows 7 and just barely ahead of the now ancient Windows XP. The issues with Windows 8 were numerous, ranging from Microsoft's design choice, called Metro, to a steep learning curve for those used to the old days of Windows.

Create your own Wi-Fi hotspot

 

Almost every smartphone today comes with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot that allows them to connect to other nearby devices and share content along with Internet connection. We can’t say the same about Windows laptops, and as such, that is where Baidu Wi-Fi Hotspot app comes in. It designed to perform in the same manner as a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot on smartphone and tablet devices. Once kicked into gear, the Baidu Wi-Fi Hotspot app will act as a virtual Wi-Fi network that will allow other devices such as smartphones and tablets to connect. The app should work wonders when away from home, and if the laptop is connected wirelessly to a 4G network or is tethered to a wired network. Some might say, why not just connect the smartphones and or tablets directly to the 4G connection. Well, one should bear in mind that these mobile devices tend to have less battery capacity when compared to a laptop. Furthermore, they also use less battery power when connected to Wi-Fi rather than 4G. When launching the app for the first time, it detects the Wi-Fi adapter and automatically creates a virtual network. The user will not have to set a password since it is already done. However, the option is there to change both the password and the Service Set Identifier (SSID.) Any connected device can be viewed from the panel, and they can be easily blocked or blacklisted if the user doesn’t want them on his or her network. Most interestingly, however, is the fact that Baidu Wi-Fi Hotspot allow the user to send files over the network to connected devices. These options are called, “Get The File From Phone” and “Send File To Phone.” The transfer is done by accessing a special web page via the mobile or desktop web browsers...For more turn your attention to windows10newsinfo forum.

 
Windows 10 Insider Preview build 10163 release notes have leaked PDF Print E-mail

Sunday, 05 July 2015 20:59

It's been raining Windows 10 builds lately, as Microsoft released its third PC preview in just four days followed by the surprise release of the ISO files of 10162 just a few hours ago. Now, the release notes for a newer build, 10163, have been leaked onto the internet by WZor. The leaked documents reveal a plethora of bug fixes, including issues related to app deployment and authentication problems. In some scenarios, when users tried to log in through a custom authentication tool but failed, they were barred by the system when attempting to log in again. Additionally, several graphics and display issues have been fixed, with the company also mentioning the blocking of a "specific OEM driver" which had prevented the camera from working properly. Other fixed issues mainly revolve around power and battery management. Now, if Battery Saver mode is turned on until the next charge and the PC goes into hibernation mode, Battery Saver remains in this state, whereas previously it didn't. Changes have been made to Microsoft Edge and notifications, to make the build more stable. Fixes have also been implemented to resolve problems related to device upgrade, system configuration and recovery issues.

Greeting Members, Guests, and all who see this,

For the past couple of days windows8newsinfo.com has experienced DNS resolving issues, and after hours of trying both in Europe, and the US a rapid solution was not at hand.

After numerous emails back and forth Riso and I came to the conclusion, that the time was ripe to go live with http://www.windows10newsinfo.com/smf. Many of you have known that our blog at windows10newsinfo.com has been live since October 2014. At that time the decision was made to point all posts to w8ni until there was a clearer launch date of Windows 10.

Now with a firm date of July 29, 2015 and a countdown clock to back it up, the entire staff at w10ni want to welcome you, and invite you and your friends to join in the discussion of what is building up to be another amazing iteration of the most widely used OS in the world...Windows.

Thank you all for making the Windowsnewsinfo Group a highly respected repository for not only all things Windows, but a wide array of educational and informative content as well.

Regards,

Riso, Javajolt and Team
