Microsoft Unveils First Update to Windows 10

Microsoft has released its first major release for Windows 10.

The new version of Windows 10 is said to "offer better performance and compatibility with third party hardware".

Microsoft, Windows and Devices executive vice president, Terry Myerson, said: "With this update, there are improvements in all aspects of the platform and experience, including thousands of partners updating their device drivers and applications for greater Windows 10 compatibility.

"Windows 10 also starts rolling out to Xbox One today, and select mobile phones soon."

Along with the update Microsoft will bring two new services aimed at IT departments. One of which, known as The Windows Store for Business, will help them manage how updates and profiles are sent to end users and when patches will be applied to different groups.

The update will add a new Azure Active Directory and settings for multiple Windows 10 devices and a mobile device management tool which will allow IT and management to remotely control and wipe data on Windows 10 devices.

The latest release comes as Microsoft continues its campaign to migrate those running Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. onto the latest version.

Research by netmarketshare revealed Windows 10 currently has less than 8 per cent of the total PC market.
