What to expect in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update?

Microsoft has released the Insider Preview Build 16241, as Windows 10's next big release date draws near, giving a sneak peek at what the Fall Creators Update will bring. And with Build 16241, much emphasizes is placed on nuts-and-bolts improvements over new capabilities.

For instance, the Task Manager now includes deeper insights into what’s going on with your GPU, and Windows 10 offers a great deal more granularity into how Windows updates will be delivered.

Also, there are more descriptive labels to the tab processes used by Microsoft Edge, allowing users to see whether a particular Web page is slowing the system down, or a more generic problem.

While the revamped OS is slatted for September debut, the Windows 10 team has shown it's seriousness as Microsoft opens its final “bug bash” challenge.

As the final lap in the race to the Fall Creators Update, Build 16241 shows off some significant new features, including Ubuntu support, update delivery options, and improved Task Manager visibility.

Linux crowd should at least be happy to know that the Bash shell now supports Ubuntu, and available for downloaded from the Windows Store.

The most significant improvements remains ability to view the active GPU’s name and see which of its functions (including 3D, video decoding and video processing) are currently active.

Microsoft also planned for the launch of mixed-reality headsets with several updates to its VR capabilities. Albeit, it’s still unclear whether headsets like Acer’s mixed-reality devices, will be ready in time for the Fall Creators Update.
