Microsoft says that the Windows 10 Creators Update will begin its official roll out on April 11 to more than 400 million Windows 10 users worldwide. Similar to the Anniversary Update, this Creators Update will roll out in waves. First for the Anniversary Updated devices and after that for all genuine Windows 10 users.

What is Windows 10 Creators Update?

The focus of this update is on “creators” as the name implies. It brings improved support for Windows-centric mixed reality and virtual reality headsets, performance optimizations for games with Game Mode and integrated Beam streaming.

This new update will feature a 3D version of Microsoft Paint, major improvements to Edge Browser, Windows e-book store and the ability to draw an annotate on everything.

The new Windows Defender Security Center will provide system assessments and the overall security status of your system at a glance. It also brings the Dynamic Lock feature, which locks your PC whenever a paired Bluetooth device is too far away. Earlier this function was only available through third-party apps.

Other features include Cortana support to the installer so it can be controlled by voice, much easier privacy settings and the Night Light mode which gives a warmer hue at night to reduce the Blue Light, that affects your sleep patterns.

Finally, users get the ability to snooze automatic updates for several days, and set active hours during which it shouldn’t reboot, to stop them from shutting down your machine at inconvenient times.
