The Windows 10 Anniversary Update has been rolling out to computers around the world for a little bit now, and while Windows 10 has gotten much better over the last year, this update is boasted as making it even better with even more features. Is that true?
Below you will find out about some of the new things in the Anniversary Update, as well as things that are breaking people’s machines and some words of warning.
New Features in the Anniversary Update
Sticky Notes – these are also synced between your devices, which honestly could be pretty handy
New Emoji Keyboard – this could save a little bit of time instead of having to search for them in the WikiEmoji.com site
Dark mode theme – this wasn’t part of Windows before?
Lock screen music controls – this could be kind of handy if you play a lot of music and lock the screen (can see it being even more handy for parents with teens who love to blast their music… LOL)
* You can mess up a lot of things manually editing your registry – even make your system unusable. Always make sure to back-up the registry first. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this yourself, hire a trained professional.
What’s broken in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update
Sometimes, you have to wonder if Microsoft even tests these updates before just rolling them out…
Webcams crash after the Update, and require a manual registry edit to fix*. This crash was due to Microsoft “blacklisting” two video compression formats that many popular webcams use
Plug-in your Amazon Kindle, and you get the Blue Screen of Death
Some people are reporting that their computers “freeze” when they go to log-in… but that only happens if you have a solid-state drive, and have your apps/data on a different drive.
Other users have reported that after the update, their machines won’t boot and only gives a blank screen
So, over all… should you update? Honestly, it’s up to you… and our word of advice — BACK UP EVERYTHING!
