Windows 10 S Will Let You Skip Passwords Forever

Windows 10 S Approve Sign-in

Windows 10 S Approve Sign-in

Tune into the keynote by Kevin Gallo, Vice President of the Windows Developer Platform, and live Q&A session to be the first to hear about the newest features and updates.

"Just download the Authenticator App and use it to set up your Windows 10 S PC", instructed Dona Sarkar, head of the Windows Insider Program, and Brandon LeBlanc, senior program manager at Microsoft, in February 7 blog post.

The update will give Insiders early access to Windows 10's HDR features. Microsoft sees UWP and PWA running in tandem, and any talk of a battle between the two is a "false dichotomy" according to the company.

Microsoft this week announced it is readying its app marketplace for progressive Web apps (PWAs), which are Web pages created to work like applications, with the ability to work offline. Possibly, they'll be available at the preview level.

This feature could be rolled out to all Windows 10 users in the upcoming release of the Redstone 4 build.

Microsoft Office is, for many people, the only place to turn to when they're looking for a good word processor, spreadseet programme or e-mail manager.

"With our commitment to transparency and control, users can now delete the Windows Diagnostic Data that Microsoft has collected from your device". The engineering team at Microsoft has apparently been using the Bing Crawler to identify PWAs on the Web for almost a year.

Microsoft is promising developers some benefits to housing their PWAs in the Microsoft Store. They get feedback and reviews, plus the ability to monetize their PWAs. The browser will be adding some of the requisite Web technologies in a production release next year.

To support PWAs the company has enabled different required technologies through EdgeHTML 17, including Service workers, push notifications, Fetch networking, Cache API, etc., in the latest Windows 10 Insider builds.

In the meantime, Microsoft is aiming to bring support for accessing PWAs right from its Edge browser. Which apps developers choose to build - UWP or PWA - will depend on the particular dev team, and whether or not "immediate app updates" are critical, Microsoft claimed.
