Windows Security improvements

The Windows Defender section in the Settings app has been redesigned and renamed “Windows Security.” As for the Windows Defender Security Center, it has a new Account Protection pillar to help you protect your identity when signing in to Windows 10. The Settings page there has been redesigned too.

Go password-less with Windows S

If you have a Windows 10 S PC, you can now use Microsoft’s Authenticator app to set up your machine and make your experience completely password-free. That includes going through the out-of-box experience and accessing all your favorite apps and services, Microsoft explained.

Eye Control improvements

This feature introduced with the Fall Creators Update has been improved with easier controls for scrolling, quicker access to common tasks and the ability to pause (hiding the launchpad) when you need to.

Windows App Permissions

The Privacy Settings navigation pane has gained new categories, including a new section for Speech, Inking & Typing where you can clear your user dictionary if you need to.

Streamlined Bluetooth pairing

Microsoft Edge improvements

After entering the full-screen mode (F11 key), you can now access the address bar by just hovering your mouse at the top of the screen. Now you can print web pages from Microsoft Edge without ads and unnecessary clutter from the web. Enable the “Clutter-free printing” option in the print dialog and print only the content you want. Note: this option will only be visible for certain type of web pages.

Input improvements

By default, Windows 10 now supports up to 3 Latin script languages for multi-lingual text predictions, which means that you should no longer need to manually switch languages when typing in multiple languages (you can turn this feature it off in Settings > Devices > Typing > Multilingual Text Prediction).

Windows Subsystem for Linux improvements

Eye tracking gains shortcuts

In Build 17093, a series of shortcuts, from to the “Start menu” icon, to Timeline, and to Settings, are available, as is a “pause” icon. “Pause” essentially allows your eyes to wander around the screen and focus on what you wish—a character’s face during a streamed movie, for example—without making Windows think you’re trying to click.
