I will recap the entirety of Windows 10 version 1809 for windows pc. Starting off with the Windows 10 Autopilot self-deploying mode which was introduced in Windows 1803, where it was made to allow any new Windows 10 device to be user ready without any manual set up. The autopilot serves as a way to power the Windows device, connect the device to the internet, and to automatically set up new devices into the system. It can enroll devices, policies, applications, certificates, and users with little to no interaction making it fast and efficient. In order to start self-deploying mode, you have to create an autopilot profile with your configuration in mind, and you want to create a device group in Azure directory to assign profiles to that group. After those steps are completed then it’s time to boot the device while making sure you have Wi-fi to complete the process. Another feature added to 1809 is the new features on security virus and threat protection. Which prevents ransomware while making sure to block suspicious apps that might cause harm to your pc. The new feature added to security is Device performance and health which lets you know how well your pc, and can check Windows updates, storage, device drivers, along with battery life. Improvements were made to Windows Defender this update which has improved on giving the standalone user an install option to configure windows defender in settings without using register keys. In this update they let anyone configure their preferences when it comes down to apps and browser along with the behavior of Windows security centers and Antivirus. Also they added a new and improved UI, which makes it easier to navigate through and overall better in design. In their new update for windows defender they have improved on Thread analytics, Custom detection, Integrations with security centers, and servers available for Windows 10 client machines. The next feature is the kiosk setup, the kiosk setup allows any administrators device to be easily set up or digitally signed. By creating a kiosk account it will automatically sign in along with any device you have. You can access Microsoft edge kiosk mode using settings or you can run it in settings or you can run it on a browser. It supports multiple-tab browsing and you can even use it in incognito mode with limited features, otherwise using it normal without private browsing it gives you all the features with no restriction. There is now a new faster sign-in to Windows 10 pc’s where it signs you into a shared pc in a flash. The way to set this up is to set up a shared or guest device with windows 10, then after that you want to set the policy, authentication, and lastly Enable Fast First Sign In policy to enable it. For web sign-in to Windows 10 you can just click on the web sign-in option and you will automatically be signing in. Microsoft also added the inclusion of using your phone with you pc for example, android users can get instant access to most recent photos on pc by dragging and dropping from pc to phone. You can also copy and edit, but you need to have a wi-fi network active for compatibility between phone and pc. Your phone can also send web pages share screens, browse, watch, and you can access the phone app anytime and it will pop up as your phone when you search for it on Windows search bar. The last feature on this overview is Wireless projection experience. Wireless projection experience which is supposed to project screens to another device like a laptop, phone, or another pc. It can be enabled using Settings and optimized on both screens, along with the latency and modes your given such as game mode, video mode, and productivity mode. Game mode minimizes the screen latency to make gaming possible. Video mode increases the latency to make sure videos are smooth. And Productivity mode is a balance between both video and game mode, but it’s possible it might glitch or lag. I would recommend video for projecting videos screen to screen, game mode to screen share games, and productivity for a mix of video and gaming. Overall this update gave many new features that are quick and efficient for IT community.
