Microsoft wants a world without passwords, starting with Windows 10

Windows 10 surpasses Windows 7 to become most popular desktop OS

With Microsoft's new solution, users can simply provide their phone number and receive a text message containing a code, similar to how 2 step verification works on other platforms. To fix these problems, Microsoft had re-released the Windows 10 version 1809 in November past year. The new Windows 10 build also enhances the experience for resetting your PIN on Windows 10 devices.

If you don't already have a password-less phone number account, you can create one in a mobile app like Word on your iOS or Android device to try it out. Today, that support is extending to all Windows editions!

However, to reset your code, you just have to click the "I forgot my PIN" link.

Build 18309 took a bow overnight for fast ring testers and we can confirm that the Windows Sandbox is up and running once again.

The point here is that Microsoft really needs to learn to streamline the Windows 10 setup experience going forward. This makes the first run experience of the device so much easier - it automatically connects to your WiFi, for example, downloads all of the apps you have downloaded from the app store, etc. Users can also name tile folders on Windows 10 devices.

Apple’s iPhone XS Max allegedly catches fire in man’s pocket
The employee resurfaced with the phone already packaged and told me that they were going to send it back to the engineering team. Finally, he was offered a new phone but by this time, Hillard was too dissatisfied with Apple's response to accept the offer.

I mean, sure, these numbers could flip again, but with new Windows PCs/laptops being nearly exclusively sold with 10 pre-installed, software sellers generally pushing 10 over 7, and Microsoft due to finally end official support for 7 in 2020, it doesn't look good for The Resistance.

Actually getting a passwordless phone number account is a bit convoluted at present. During subsequent log-ins, you will be using Windows Hello to access your account. Users can now download additional voices in other languages without having to download entire language packs.

Microsoft has announced that it is disabling its assistant's voice-over during the Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise, and Education setup processes.

According to a blog post from Microsoft's Japanese 'Ask the Network & AD Support Team, ' the built-in Windows 10 administrator account may be invalidated while upgrading to the version 1809. Businesses and enterprises will have the option to pay for Extended Security Updates, but OS security updates for Windows 7 will cease for everyone else on January 14, 2020.
