To better protect your valuable data from malicious apps and threats like Ransomware, Microsoft introduces a new feature called Controlled folder access in the upcoming Windows 10 Falls Creators Update.

Microsoft made a drastic change to its Task Manager in Windows 10, as a developer and pro consumer this is a very welcome change. As Windows 10 receives new major updates on a regular basis, the Task Manager also welcomes new features as well. For instance, upcoming major Windows 10 update this Fall will include the GPU usage in the Task Manager. It’s a welcome addition to the gamers, graphic/video designer and cryptocurrency miner to monitor their system load.
Microsoft updated the Windows Console to support full 24-bit RGB true color in Windows 10 build 14931 last September. Back then, they didn’t modify the default Windows color mappings for the console to reflect this change. But now, in Windows 10 build 16257, the Windows Console’s default colors got their first overhaul in more than 20 years.
It’s frustrating when you are trying to delete a file but only get a warning message telling you that the file is in use and cannot be deleted, isn’t it? Turns out, Microsoft already has a command line built-in Windows that lets you quickly check to find out which process is holding up your file. It’s called OpenFiles and it’s been around since Windows Vista.
