Windows 10 Timeline won't be done in time for Fall Creators Update

It's definitely shaping up to be a good looking addition to Windows 10, so here's hoping it delivers when we get to see it for the first time later this year.

The update Microsoft released this week, labeled KB4022716, follows shortly after a June 13 cumulative update for the shipping version of Windows 10.

And finally we come to the ransomware protection in the form of controlled folder access in Windows Defender Antivirus which helps users protect personal data malicious apps and threats. Unfortunately though, it seems that the new Timeline feature that Joe Belfiore introduced during the annual developer conference won't be ready for the upcoming Fall Creators Update.

On Friday, Microsoft announced details about two new types of nagging popups that Windows 10 users are going to be seeing starting this week.

Still, the company is urging users to install the Windows 10 Creators Update as soon as possible for obvious security reasons given the recent ransomware outbreaks, which hit un-patched systems and Windows 7 but left Windows 10 systems unscathed.

Did Iran's Ahvaz record the hottest temperature on earth at 54°C?

The company has called on users to ensure they are running the latest "feature" version of Windows 10 - these are the major updates the firm puts out twice a year. Cable notes that monthly quality updates include another layer of security that "tracks emerging and changing trends in malware" to protect systems from newer threats. This group of users will get a notification and prompt to "update now".

"We will start sending a notification if your device needs to be updated to the latest feature update".

That "choice" ultimately extends to letting you "snooze" the update for a few days, and eventually postponing it to some after hours time when you're not using your computer - presumably so you're not forced to update in the middle of an important presentation - but you will eventually be forced to update so your Windows 10 stays updated - and keeps you safe.

Fans of Windows want to know what Microsoft plans to release in the next feature update. Users are now able to audit, configure and manage their Windows system and application exploit mitigation settings from the Windows Defender Security Center (WDSC).
