Windows 10 version 21H1 is officially the May 2021 Update; arrives in Release Preview

Today, Microsoft christened Windows 10 version 21H1 as the Windows 10 May 2021 Update. As of now, it’s available for Windows Insiders in the Release Preview channel. Right now, it’s only available for “seekers”, meaning that if you check for updates, you’ll be presented with the option to download the feature update.

Paint 3D removed from the Windows 10 context menu

A decision that makes sense. Not that long ago, Redmond announced that it would no longer preinstall the Paint 3D app in Windows 10, moving it instead to the Microsoft Store.

Makes sense, as the company is deep into development of a new flavor of the OS. One that goes by as Windows 10X. As per this silent shift to this new approach, Microsoft now ships two different feature updates for Windows 10 every year. The first of this is a notably more substantial release in...

Windows 10 Build 20185 Says Hello From The Dev Channel

Microsoft has just released Windows 10 build 20185 to the Dev channel, as it the norm for Wednesdays. And as is typical of the last few releases, there’s nothing new or exciting in this build. But we’ll take what comes our way. As the company notes, the main highlight is better DNS configuration in Settings and ADMX Backed Policies in MDM. In other words, nothing to write home about if you are looking for new features and...

Download ISOs For The First Windows 10 Iron Build

Perfect, if you want to do a clean installation on your system or...
