Microsoft has finally announced the release date for the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators update.

The major software upgrade, its fourth update, will be offered starting October 17 to existing customers of Windows 10 running on roughly 550 million devices, the company said.

Next up, a (very creatively named) feature called "Pick Up Where You Left Off", which lets you start a task on your Windows PC, say editing a Word document, and pick it up on your phone exactly where you left off. IBT reported previously that this will allow the Photos app to be powered by an AI which allows users to search for photos just by typing keywords or descriptions of what's in the photos.

Photos and Videos: The Photos application has been redesigned, and you may tell "stories with photos, videos, music, 3D and even inking" using it.

Tottenham rival Chelsea for Llorente
Chelsea are moving closer towards signing striker Fernando Llorente , taking away another potential Everton transfer. Llorente , a World Cup victor with Spain, scored 15 goals last season as Swansea successfully avoided relegation.

Mexico is Offering to Help Houston's Hurricane Harvey Flood Victims

Mosquitoes with West Nile virus found in Leominster
Eliminate all sources of standing water on your property, including flower pots, old vehicle tires, rain gutters and pet bowls. Clothing should be light colored and made of tightly woven materials that keep mosquitoes away from the skin.

Underneath, it promises better security protection - most notably against the scourge of ransomware - but also support for OneDrive Files on Demand, which presents files on Windows Explorer without taking up local storage.

As always, there are Windows Defender improvements to keep your system more secure, and there are accessibility improvements as well. Finding the pen has been made easier with Windows Find my Pen fixes in the Fall Creators Update. And for us, those experiences begin with Windows 10, the most-popular version of Windows on the planet, with over 500 million devices in homes, businesses, and schools helping you create and play. That allows eye controllers to replace mouse and keyboard.

Unfortunately, the new release won't include one of the more exciting features that Microsoft has planned. And we can't forget that the Fall Creators Update will unlock the power of the Windows Mixed Reality platform. Microsoft also will designate a September build of Windows Server 2016's first feature update (1709) as its "launch" candidate, as the company plans to announce at its Ignite conference in late September. Acer and Dell have holiday bundles planned that include both a headset and a set of controllers. Acer's headset will cost $299, while HP's will cost $329.
