Do not download Windows Movie Maker from any source

Do not download Windows Movie Maker from any source

The start of 2017 was a bittersweet one for many fans of Microsoft’s built-in Windows software like Live Mail and Movie Maker. The company has permanently retired the Windows Essential 2012 bundle from both download and support. But while many of the apps in that pack had counterparts in Windows 10, Windows Movie Maker didn’t, forcing users to look for alternative download sources. Naturally, those illegitimate sources are the perfect breeding ground for scammers looking for a way to make a quick buck out of people’s desperation.

Windows 10 to get wireless file sharing, Edge mute tab

One of the good things about Microsoft’s new “Windows as a Service” thrust is that you don’t have to wait for ages before you can get your hands on significant new features. Sure, you might have to wait a year or even just half for the next Windows 10 update, but that’s still lots faster than previous Windows versions. The Fall Creators Update was just released a month ago and fans will probably already be looking forward to the next one, which brings offline file sharing and more functionality to the Edge web browser.

Free Windows 10 upgrades end this year

Free Windows 10 upgrades end this year

At one point in time, Microsoft was criticized for being too aggressive and too desperate to get users on Windows 10 immediately. It seems that the desperation has died down and Microsoft is confident enough in the numbers to close the doors on those who still refuse to go from 7 or 8 to 10. Microsoft has just made it clear that its abused extension of free upgrades to Windows 10 is going to end December 31 this year, giving users about 2 months to make up their minds.

DxOMark buys Nik Collection from Google to continue development

Google released the software suite for free last year, so that may have already been an omen of its doom. Luckily for fans, DxO, the company behind DxOMark, has swooped in to buy the collection from Google in order to continue the software’s development.
