Microsoft’s Latest Windows 10 Build Pushes For A Password-less Future

07 January 2019

But new Windows 10 installs have continued growing at a strong and steady pace and reached nearly 700 million devices back in May.

However, if you're someone like an IT pro (or a friendly neighbourhood tech reviewer) who regularly has to wipe and configure a bunch of machines, Cortana's persistent blathering can drive you and everyone in your vicinity bonkers.

Clean installs of Windows 10 Home will continue to have Cortana's narration on by default.

Microsoft first introduced this feature last month as part of preview build 18305, but at the time it was limited to Windows 10 Home.

In the end, though, Tulowitzki represents a low-risk, high-reward move by a team with strong designs on the World Series. On Instagram, Machado's official account just started following the YES Network, which is the Yankees' flagship station.

Beyond the changes involving Cortana and passwords, the latest build introduces a host of general changes, improvements, and bug fixes. At that point, they can use Windows Hello Face, Fingerprint, or a PIN to sign in to Windows 10, with no password required. This is handy, because right now Windows 10 19H1 is somewhat light on whizzbang features and heavy on fit and finish. After that, Windows 10 will be the only supported operating system Microsoft manufacturers - assuming, of course, that the company doesn't change its mind and release a Windows 11 at some point between now and then. The feature sends a one-time code to your phone number via SMS, which you can use to log-in.

In the meantime, it will ask you not to upgrade to the latest Windows 10 update if you have one built-in account with admin privileges as it might block all the admin functions.

Earlier the driver had steered his vehicle at another pedestrian, who managed to escape unharmed, according to the statement. Police fatally shot the 48-year-old man, who they said was mentally ill and had wanted to commit suicide.

Microsoft is investigating an issue where clicking your account in Cortana Permissions isn't bringing up the UI to sign out from Cortana (if you were already signed in) for some users in this build.

Compounding the frustration is that while Microsoft is using Cortana to improve the accessibility of Windows setup, it hasn't actually done a very good job.

Build 18309 also includes some Narrator improvements, including the ability to download additional voices in other languages without having to download language packs. According to the analysis of the provider Net Applications it replaces the longtime leader Windows 7.
