Microsoft Brings 'Placeholders' to Windows 10 for OneDrive and SharePoint

Clarence Schmidt | 12 May, 2017, 01:53

Revealed Thursday at the company's Build conference in Seattle, the next major version of the operating system fills in some of the missing pieces we lamented in March's Creators Update, and it makes it easier to work across multiple Windows devices.

Myerson added that the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will also look different, thanks to what Microsoft is calling a "Fluent Design System" that will create a common user interface across devices.

This feature will likely be welcomed by the thousands who have loudly protested to Microsoft that they would like to see this feature return to Windows 10.

Microsoft didn't say when Fall Creators Update will come out. This new feature will bridge together Windows 10, Android, and iPhone. Cortana will ask if you want to resume where you left off when you switch between products, and a new Timeline feature provides an encompassing view of what you've been working on and the apps you've been using. It uses technologies such as Timeline, which visually displays what a user was doing previously, allowing them to easily hop back into files, apps and websites as if it was real time. Details are scarce, but given that Graph works with Office 365, there's a good chance users will be able to rewind not only Windows software but also its cloud services.

"Imagine logging off your PC and having the doc you were editing pop up on your phone", Myerson said. All your files, whether offline or online, will be viewable in Windows 10's File Explorer and will work just like every other file on your device.

In a bid to lure Apple and Google customers to Microsoft also said it is adding iTunes and Apple Music to its Windows Store.

Windows Story Remix uses AI and deep learning to organize and transform photos and videos into stories.

Inspired Alves leads Juventus into Champions League final
The German midfielder is likely to be straight back into the starting lineup, with Claudio Marchisio expected to make way for him. Juventus are heading for their sixth successive Serie A title and produced an utterly clinical display in the first leg.

Microsoft has been designing in 2D for years, according to Joe Belfiore, a long-time Windows exec. Autodesk SketchBook, the de facto application for painting and drawing, was built from the ground up as a UWP app leveraging the pen and touch capability of Windows 10.

Microsoft will employ the activity data collected along the way to support Timeline, a feature for bringing up old application sessions.

Windows has a great app for creating videos again. "If a cross-platform app is available, we'll help the user get it installed", he said.

We were also told that HP ($329) and Acer ($299) will both open up pre-orders for their Mixed Reality HMDs through the Microsoft Store for developers in the USA and Canada.

As a nod to creativity, the Fall Creators Update will contain a new creative app that will let you build stories from your photos and videos, combining them with a soundtrack and transitions.

Microsoft plans to introduce a new headset and motion controller in time for the holiday season.
