Microsoft Windows 10’s five upcoming features you must know



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.

Anuj has been both the versatile form of human and a talented kind of professional worker who has released over 30+ books by now and all of them, have delivered their required motive.
He has recently came up with a book “Assassinating Modi”. The premise is both scandalous and rather bold. It takes a significant amount of courage to write about something like this. The author has combined political drama with action and adventure. The books enfolds mystery and conspiracy, creating intrigue in the mind of a reader.

Being an actor who was an alleged murder convict of his own father has come so ahead in life, becoming an author of 30+ published books, a renowned blogger and so renowned. He was a prime of suspect of his father’s murder and his life took a huge turn away from bollywood and put his mind to travelling in order to attain peace of mind and that’s the story of his blog TikkusTravelton. If one reads his blogs, he/ she will find out how beautifully he has written about his travel experiences, from his spiritual experiences at Kumb to the very calming Kailash Yatra. He has channelled the things he likes to do, his hobbies into his profession, his main revenue earning means.

After being detained in a false crime of his dad’s murder in April 2012, life’s been more than just a challenging game to Mr. Anuj as it took a while longer than expected for the real killer to be identified which did cost Anuj a fortune of loss in his goodwill and peace of mind but once a fighter is always a fighter and that’s how his journey of being unstoppable started.
Apart from his new books, he has dared to jot down his own life’s saddening and mysterious tales in form of books which are namely; Yes Sir, I killed my dad: A son’s grief, then there’s Unholy tales from Banaras which somehow created a buzz in the reader’s community. His book Yeh! Hai India was displayed on several blogs as a milestone read and such work of success was still somehow unnoticed by people. There’s also a reality based work of research from the author under the title “Chal Nangi Hoja”, where the author has performed a skilled and marvelous work of research on how a porn app is developed beneath the nose of the nation’s judicial system by a known personality and the work witnessed in the book is beyond explainable terms.

*His book, Nineteen* : A Pandemic’s Tale, has the Covid-19 pandemic in the background and is the story of the people of Mumbai and across and India are struggling in the pandemic with many lives at stakes. And he also talks about the importance to keep aside our differences and stand up together as one unit, keeping in mind the saying “We are in this together”.

There’s one thing common in his writings that he writes in a swift flow and makes use of simple expressions which can vividly understood by an average reader. His English is not too complex and his books lay focus on the narration rather than the language. In his journey as an author he has written on topics in a wide spectrum – real events, his travel diaries, memoirs, soft erotica and much more. He has an enlightening effect on people and bring to the fore, things that are talked about a lot but people don’t know them in bits and crucks.

Photos | Delhi’s crystal clear view amid lockdown



The nationwide lockdown imposed in the country to contain the deadly coronavirus has brought some good news for the air quality across the country.

Amid all other states and cities, Delhi – which has always been in bad light due to pollution, has come up with a crystal clear view and improved air quality on Friday.

According to Centre-run System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research (SAFAR), Delhi breaths ‘satisfactory’ for the fifth consecutive day with the overall Air Quality Index (AQI) docking at 62.

Here are some of the pictures giving glimpses of New Delhi amid the lockdown:


It is not just India but worldwide that the impact of multiple lockdowns can be observed. Quarantining and lockdowns have forced many countries’ industries to shut down, with many factories closing their doors. The World Economic Forum reports, images from the Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air (CREA), as well as satellite footage from NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA), show a drastic decline in NO? emissions over recent months, particularly across Italy and China.

According to NASA scientists, the reduction in NO2 pollution was first apparent near Wuhan, but eventually spread across the world. Millions of people have been quarantined in one of the largest such actions in human history. “This is the first time I have seen such a dramatic drop-off over such a wide area for a specific event,” said Fei Liu, an air quality researcher at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. Liu recalls seeing a drop in NO2 over several countries during the economic recession that began in 2008, but the decrease was gradual.

Apple HomePod smart speaker confirmed for India launch; price revealed



Apple’s first ever smart speaker, Homepod, has been a subject to several delays and slow sales in the past. But now, months after making it available in select countries, Apple is all set to launch its Siri-based smart speaker in India. The indirect confirmation comes from the HomePod listing page on the Apple India website. Although it still says ‘Check back later for availability’, the price of the device has been revealed as Rs 19,900.

Considering the price tag of the speaker, it will be safe to assume that this Siri-enabled accessory will be going up against Bose Home Speaker 300, Amazon Echo Studio and even the Echo Plus (2nd-gen), all of which are in the same range.

HomePod saw the light of the day three years ago at WWDC 2017 and went on sale in Australia, the US and the UK in early 2018 at US$349 (roughly Rs 24,860). You can also buy the smart speaker from Germany, France, Canada and select other regions. Last year it went on sale in China, Japan and Taiwan.

Apple India mentions the price of HomePod.

Sporting six microphone arrays, Apple HomePod is said to recognise the physics of a room (or what Apple calls as Spatial Awareness) and play audio accordingly so the user gets the best experience. There’s also seven beamforming speakers, each with its own amplifier. Powering the speaker is Apple’s A8 chip. You can also setup a multi-room audio system using AirPlay 2 connectivity. On the outside, you can see Apple HomePods in two colour variants – Black and White. There’s a mesh fabric coating on the outside with all the controls on the top.

What’s more is that if the user is in the middle of a phone call or listening to a song, you can easily hand it off to HomePod. All you need to do is to hold the iOS or iPadOS device next to the speaker.
