It will also allow users to see the number of programs that are running on the computer. Also, the new feature can also be accessed by customers using their smartphones. Timeline is expected to work for both Microsoft Edge and Office 365 users. However, users should not expect Timeline to serve as a backup unit for previous files.

In the Windows 10 software, Microsoft will help customers find their focus again. The Focus Assist is the new incarnation of a previous feature called the "Do Not Disturb" function. Some of the purposes of this application could range from reading a book or a document on your computer to working on an assignment. Focus Assist will also turn off distractions such as social media updates at scheduled times of the day.

Diction will give users the chance to speak to their computers and provide the computer orders to type out your phrasing. Customers should use Diction in several applications such as both Microsoft Word and Google Docs.

Welcome To The Virtual World

Another element that could satisfy Windows 10 users is the Windows Mixed Reality feature. The service for StreamVR is expected to transport people in the virtual world. If customers have their Windows-powered VR headsets, they should be able to play games with the app. The software update would also allow people to take pictures of their VR games.
