Microsoft's latest Windows 10 preview lets you preserve battery life with throttling

User defeats Microsoft's latest bid to force W10 upgrade

The next feature update for the platform - dubbed Redstone 3 - will be pushed out in September this year. Customers have been asking Microsoft for a more predictable release schedule, one that would be simple and easy to follow, the company says. From October 13, 2020, using Office 365 will require the use of either Office 365 ProPlus, or, for organizations that are using perpetual licenses, a version that's still in mainstream support. So, the user would have to keep their systems updated to continue receiving the support. The next update following on from the current Windows 10 Creators Update will be released in September 2017.

The new feature, dubbed Power Throttling, is created to limit the amount of power used by apps running in the background.

The reverse engineered scripts have now been released to GitHub for inspection, fiddling and general jiggery-pokery, but word on the street is that they work and that after patching, all security updates are reinstated.

Under the new planned release targets of March and September there will be approximately six months between releases to work on the next feature updates development.

Long queues formed at the new bridge on Tuesday with families crossing in public buses, trucks and taxis. Islamic State seized Mosul in mid-2014.

With Windows 10 Creators Update still rolling out (it's not been offered to me yet), September seems rather soon for yet another feature update release. In the meantime, the only way to test it right now is to join Microsoft's beta program for Windows 10 and install the latest update.

This feature can allow the processor to more quickly ramp up performance, and has already delivered a limited speed boost when running select apps, such as Microsoft Edge, on Windows 10 on certain Intel CPUs.

Microsoft's plan is to change this cadence, going forward, to improve predictability and "because Office Pro Plus and Windows 10 are often deployed together", said Ron Markezich, Corporate Vice President of Office 365 Marketing. Also, "Project Neon" is also reported to part of the update and is set to bring a number of visual changes to the interface, especially to Windows Explorer.

There's no doubt that Instagram is cranking up the heat with this new update, especially if we also consider their recently announced offline mode.
