To access the new features in Windows 10, shown Thursday at Microsoft's Build conference for developers in Seattle, users will need a Microsoft account to sign in on those devices and share information.
The Microsoft Fluent Design System will deliver a better cross-device experience, making jumping from platform to platform, or device to device, much easier. On Thursday, the company unveiled a series of apps and services, including one that's created to let Windows-based developers test iOS apps from their PCs. Microsoft has updated the Volume Mixer, and it includes apps such as Microsoft Edge, Groove Music. Microsoft's operating system will now include elements of transparency and animation that it previously lacked. Windows Insiders will be the first to try out numerous new features demonstrated today - with more to come!
Microsoft hasn't rolled out all of the new features at Build 2017 so we can expect more features to be unveiled during the summer. Both Lenovo and HP should launch new all-in-one Windows 10 PCs for the holiday season and the hardware should support features such as the new home screen or waking via Cortana voice commands. Microsoft also announced it is working with SUSE Linux and Fedora Linux running on the Windows Subsystem for Linux - to bring them to the Windows Store.
Your files, activities, and other content will seamlessly travel across devices and just be there - if the system works as Microsoft promises.

Microsoft is releasing a bunch of other improvements and fixes for Windows 10 with build 16193.
"We designed Windows 10 to empower the creator in all of us", said Terry Myerson, executive vice president, Windows and Devices Group, Microsoft. "Few people, if any, lock into one ecosystem and they want to easily move across those devices and pickup where they left off". "But they don't, and they've moved to a higher level", he said.
Myerson highlighted several new features coming to the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. The most notable addition is Xamarin Live Player, which provides the ability to pair an Apple Inc. iOS or Google Inc. Visual Studio will wait until a developer stops typing for a couple seconds, and then push an updated view to the device so that they can see how it looks, Friedman said. This integration will enable programmers to quickly check how an app changes after an update.
