Google announced the Anniversary Update in March, and it looks like it’s the best update we’ve seen yet.
The Anniversary Update adds many features that we’ve come to expect from Windows, including better graphics, a revamped Start screen, and more.
But one thing that’s missing from the Anniversary update is Cortana, the digital assistant that’s been around since Windows 8.1.
Microsoft is also introducing a new emoji and a new font for its Windows Hello service, but those are minor additions that aren’t enough to fix the most glaring bugs.
We’ve done some testing and found the Anniversary updates to be pretty good.
Read more on the Insider Program, and we’ve also rounded up a few tips and tricks for installing the Anniversary Windows 10 update.
The most important thing to know is that Microsoft will only update your PC with the Anniversary version of the Anniversary Operating System, so you’ll have to reinstall Windows 10 to get Cortana back.
We’ll explain why.
We’re running Windows 10 Anniversary on a MacBook Pro with Intel Core i5-3210U processor, 8GB RAM, and a 128GB SSD.
We also have a GTX 1050 Ti graphics card running at 4K resolution.
Windows 10 Pro, Windows 10 Home, and Windows 10 Enterprise are also supported, as are versions of Office 2017 and Windows Hello 2.0.
