Microsoft Windows 10’s five upcoming features you must know

Published

on

Microsoft released the Windows 10 update 19H2 back in November 2019. It was the smallest and quickest Windows 10 update and included select performance improvements, enterprise features, and quality enhancements. Now, the Windows 10 20H1 update, which is slated for a May 2020 roll-out, will be the ninth major refresh since the original release back in July 2015.

It is a part of Microsoft’s decision to split the major Windows 10 feature releases into two parts, a full-fledged update and a secondary update. The May 2020 update will be 2020’s major update following 19H1 in 2019.

Here are 5 features one can expect from the next Windows 10 major update:

New Cortana experience

Cortana has evolved. Users will be able to type queries to Cortana rather than say them out loud. One can resize and move around the Cortana panel on their desktop by dragging the title bar as well. Cortana supports both Windows 10’s light and dark themes as well. Microsoft has also said that it has “updated Cortana with new speech and language models” as well as “significantly improved performance” of the voice assistant.

Faster Windows search

To help users find information, Microsoft has added four quick web searches, including weather, top news, today in history and new movies. To preview the web answers, one has to select the search box to open search home, followed by quick search buttons. Just enter a query into the search box for quick results.

Improved disk usage for Windows Search

Following the inclusion of enhanced search mode in the 19H1 update, Windows 10 20H1 update will find key improvements in areas related to excessive disk and CPU usage, general performance issues, and low perceived value of the indexer.

Microsoft is introducing an algorithm that detects high disk usage and activity to better identify peak usage times and manage the indexer accordingly. They further revealed in their blog that they are making changes for developers to prevent searches of certain repositories and project folders to improve disk usage.

Virtual desktop renaming

Users may get the option to be able to rename their virtual desktops. To get started, one has to open task view by selecting the task view icon in the taskbar or pressings WIN+Tab. Once there, they need to select new desktop followed by desktop name, which will make it editable. One can also right click the desktop thumbnail and a content menu will appear with a rename entry. Write the name you would like and press enter for the change to take effect.

Event creation from taskbar

Users will be able to create an event straight from the calender flyout on the taskbar following the 20H1 update. Select the date and time at the lower right corner of the taskbar to open the calendar flyout and pick their desired date and start typing in the text box. This will see inline options to set time and location.

A Surgeon by Day & a Poet by Night, Here is All You Need to Know About Dr. Shadab Ahmed

Published

on

Our team had been in touch with Dr. Shadab Ahmed for some time. We had always seen him smiling and in a positive mode. His books are well admired and he has a great persona, for which we decided to cover his story. Today we present you with a true gem of a person, Dr. Shadab Ahmed.

Dr. Shadab Ahmed hails from Bihar, India. He has spent good segments of his life in North-East India, New Delhi, Gujarat, and Tamil Nadu. True-Blood Bihari by thinking and living, his mantra is “Carpe Diem”, or to seize the day.

Dr. Shadab Ahmed was born and brought up in the resilient and magical North-East India, growing up between guns and roses. He moved pan-India at various ages, finishing his schooling in Manipur and Delhi. His voracious appetite for knowledge and wisdom led him into books, refining his perception and understanding of the good, bad, and wicked in life. He is a scholar of literature and poetry, and his interests are diverse in Norse, Hebrew, European, Mughal, Russian, Iberian, Latin-Modernism, Metaphysical, Alhambra, Mandarin, Turkish, Persian, Indian, Baltic, Celtic, and Castilian poetry and literature. He retains an inner child and has a very combustible imagination.

Dr. Shadab Ahmed is an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon by profession, and he is also an Associate Professor (Reader) in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Vinayaka Mission’s Sankarachariyar Dental College, Vinayaka Mission’s Research Foundation (VMRF-DU), Salem, Tamil Nadu. He completed his UG from Buddha Institute of Dental Sciences and Hospital, Bihar, and his PG from Meenakshi Ammal Dental College & Hospital, Tamil Nadu. For pre-destiny, he altered his academic path and took the bold risk of jumping into college management and administration, and has never looked back since. He is distinctive in methodically drafting policies for NABH, NAAC, NIRF, and AISHE and implementing protocols of the Dental Council of India. He focuses on qualitative and quantitative institutional growth. He has previously served as Joint Coordinator and Administration Advisor to dental institutions and has worked as a dental surgeon with the North-East Frontier Railways, Assam. His interest in OMFS goes into Head and Neck Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Cleft and Craniofacial Disorders, and Maxillofacial Trauma.

Inspiration to write a book: Dr. Shadab Ahmed has always been fascinated by books and wanted to write since he was a child. But for his chosen and formidable academic path. He never managed to complete his books, which were left on the shelves and acquired dust over time. His inspiration to write books came from his father, who proudly declared one day that he would never be able to write a book. Today, Dr. Ahmed is the author of 3 published non-pedagogical books related to World Poetry, with several others in the press and under progress. He devotes his free time maniacally to reading, understanding, and translating various canonical poetry texts and their interpretations, along with their “Pre-Text” in history and “Con-Text” in contemporary times and ages. His extra-academic interest bridges across Bards, Rhymes, Hymns, Epics, Odes, Elegies, Zajals, Poesies, Ballads, Sonnets, Quatrains, Verses, Couplets, Qasidehs, Muwashshahs, Masnawis, Haikus, Limericks, and Runes. His distinctive interest lies in European Literature and Poetry (covering the Jacobean Era, Elizabethan Era, Edwardian Era, Georgian Era, Stuart and Caroline Eras, Renaissance and Post-Renaissance Eras) and Mandarin Poetry, encompassing the Ming, Yuan, Song, and Tang dynasties.

Dr. Shadab Ahmed has several books in progress and manages to write in what little time he gets after his professional duties. Two more of his books are in press and slated to be released in the coming months this year. He aspires to open a bookstore someday, thereby completing the trinity of visions he envisioned as a child (Doctor-Author-Businessman). He prays he gets the time and chance to see his pre-science conceptualizing in the coming months and years. He believes in taking decisive risks and lives for the day.
