OneDrive 64-bit for Windows is finally available but still in preview

The computing world has mostly moved over to 64-bit systems even though there are still plenty of 32-bit devices around. Apple has already enforced the software upgrade to 64-bit on both macOS and iOS but, due to the legacy baggage it has to support, Microsoft has been slower to cut ties with 32-bit software. Case in point is its own OneDrive sync for Windows which only gets a 64-bit version, albeit one still in preview.

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint finally supports Windows 10 on Arm

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint finally supports Windows 10 on Arm

Even before Apple introduced its first Arm-based Apple Silicon, Microsoft was already making attempts at bringing Windows to Arm, specifically Qualcomm Snapdragon, computers without much success. In addition to unimpressive performance, Windows 10 on Arm felt more like an afterthought that even Microsoft forgot over the years. The popularity of the M1 Macs, however, may have spurred Microsoft into action and, at long last, it has brought its enterprise Microsoft Defender for Endpoint solution to Windows 10 on Arm, including its own Surface Pro X.

Windows 10 Taskbar will no longer crash if Explorer.exe does

Windows 10 Taskbar will no longer crash if Explorer.exe does

One of perhaps the strangest idiosyncrasies of the Windows platform is the association of the desktop, the digital workspace that users see all the time, with explorer.exe, the program in charge of File Explorer and file management. Even if you consider that the desktop area is associated with the user's Desktop folder, other parts of that experience, like the Taskbar, don't exactly make sense. After decades, it seems that Microsoft is finally changing that and taking the Windows Taskbar out of Explorer.exe.

Windows 10X delayed but still won’t have win32 support

Microsoft is gearing up for the first major Windows 10 update this year but it's not exactly the biggest Windows release expected this year. That said, it almost seems like Microsoft has suddenly gone silent about its new Windows 10X operating system. that's still coming, according to sources, but its launch is being pushed back to the second half of the year. That, however, won't mean that Microsoft will be adding new features on what may already be a disappointing watered-down version of its original vision for it.

Windows 10 Auto HDR, Virtual Desktop customization are coming

Microsoft already declared that this year's first major Windows 10 update will be a smaller one than usual, focusing more on keeping the operating system stable and polished.

Windows 10 Out-of-Band update fixes printer BSOD bug

Windows 10 Out-of-Band update fixes printer BSOD bug

The Blue Screen of Death, more popular by its acronym BSOD, is amusingly one of Microsoft's long-lasting legacies, no matter which version of Windows it releases. The dreaded error message, which disrespectfully halts anything you may have been doing, can be triggered by almost seemingly random causes, from copying files to running some programs. The latest trigger happened to be caused by simply trying to print. Fortunately, the situation has gotten so out of hand that Microsoft decided to push out the fix way ahead of schedule.

Windows 10 insider preview 21327 brings new icons, flat look

The look and feel of Windows 10 is about to get more flat, simple, and beautiful, thanks to the latest update for Windows Insiders. Of interest, if you've never read into or about the Windows Insider system - this is slightly different from the Developer Preview programs that exist on other platforms, like Android or iOS.
