Microsoft fixes Chrome crash bug caused by the Windows April Update

Microsoft's 'Your Phone' feature is possibly a BlackBerry Blend alternative

A new Insiders build of Windows 10 (labeled 17666) is beginning to roll out to those in the Fast ring, and Microsoft has noted quite a few changes users can expect to see after installing it.

A year ago, there were numerous, though cumbersome ways to transfer a file from one PC to another: email, chat, saving it to the cloud, a USB stick, and so on. If you don't recall, Sets is Microsoft's way of adding tabs to full-fledged Windows apps; the idea is that you can group together different apps for a single project the way you group tabs in your browser windows.

If you are affected, please be assured that Microsoft is working on a solution which will be "provided in a near future Windows Update". This could be because the feature will only work with Edge, it could be because Microsoft simply doesn't want to talk about other browsers, or it could just be because it's an experimental feature which other browsers will come to support in time.

Furthermore, the company is now allowing developers to manage the colors inside an app, making it flexible to set the overall theme as per the brand's color scheme. It's optional, so if you like the old way you can stick with it.

Of course, the problem for many will be that "Edge" part. This vulnerability only affects Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2, the bulletin said.

Also arriving in the preview build are some additional hints of Microsoft's Fluent Design System such as the acrylic title bar in Sets.

It is a bold, biting commentary on modern American discourse and the racial disparity, gun violence and vanity that come with it. In the video, Glover is joined by a number of schoolchildren who jive in unison with the rapper.

"Despite a Word document being the initial attack vector, the vulnerability is actually in VBScript, not in Microsoft Word", Kaspersky Lab researchers say.

This latest Windows 10 Preview also brings a partial dark mode that applies a black background to the File Explorer, general user menus within the app and the pop-up open/save dialogs. Development on the feature will continue and it is too early to tell how useful it will be in the end. Developers can cheer again, as those line breaks have arrvied.

As announced at Build 2018, Microsoft has added support for Unix/Linux line endings and Macintosh line endings to Notepad, meaning Notepad now supports CRLF, LF and CR.

Notepad has also become searchable via Bing. You can access the feature by selecting/ highlighting certain text. With Sets, a new tab search page will open.

Updates helping you support the Fluent Design System so that you can create immersive, deeply engaging experiences with Microsoft's updated design language.
