Microsoft Begins Hitting Mute on Cortana's Annoying Home windows 10 Setup Voiceover

Windows 10- Do great things

Back in 2017, Microsoft updated the experience users go through when setting up a new Windows 10 PC.

It was introduced last month for Windows 10 Home to all editions of the operating system. While we're talking security, the same is true of the Windows Hello PIN reset process, which was tweaked and streamlined in the last build, and is now also available across all versions of Windows 10 (and not just testers with Windows 10 Home).

If you don't yet have a Microsoft phone number account, you can download any of its apps on your Android or iOS device and sign up with your phone number under "Sign in or Sing up for free".

The CERT Coordination Center (CERT/CC) today issued CVE-2018-8626 for a Windows DNS server heap overflow vulnerability. The company introduced the ability to sign in with a phone number account and not having to create yet another password.

In the meantime, it will ask you not to upgrade to the latest Windows 10 update if you have one built-in account with admin privileges as it might block all the admin functions.

This feature is available now in Insider build 18309.

The point here is that Microsoft really needs to learn to streamline the Windows 10 setup experience going forward. This was also originally only for Windows 10 Home, but is now offered in all editions. When you start setting up the new device, it asks you whether you want to carry over the data from your other, existing devices - and you can then transfer the content from your existing device and use it to set up your new iPhone or iPad. The feature sends a one-time code to your phone number via SMS, which you can use to log-in.

Since your account doesn't have a password, select "Sign in options", click the alternative "PIN" tile, and click "Sign in".

Read Current character phonetics: Added Narrator + 5 twice Narrator command to render current character phonetics. At that point, they can use Windows Hello Face, Fingerprint, or a PIN to sign in to Windows 10, with no password required.

Cursor and Pointers: Building on our mouse work announced with 18298, we've added 11 additional mouse pointer sizes in the Cursor and Pointers settings.

Of course, as it the case with all early Insider preview builds, this one includes a healthy list of known issues for both user and developers.
