Windows 10 support extended again: September releases now get 30 months

Credit Microsoft

We recently flighted version 10.1807.2286.0 of Snip & Sketch (née Screen Sketch) to Skip Ahead, which included the highly requested delay snip feature.

The options for deferring updates are also different in Windows 10 Enterprise and Pro editions than in the Home edition.

While mainstream support for Windows 7 was axed in 2015, the end of extended support is fast approaching for the 9-year-old operating system. The new version of Exchange Server is now available for download on the company's website, including new features aimed at delivering improved administration and management capabilities along with the security and performance you've come to expect from other Exchange Server builds.

"You've been talking, and we've been listening", says Jared Spataro, corporate vice president of Microsoft 365. The Windows Analytics service, which provides an overview of device health, compatibility issues, update compliance, and upgrade readiness, is being expanded to a new Desktop Analytics service. With Windows XP, Microsoft eventually forced business users to show that they were making the effort to migrate, but no such signs have been shown with Windows 7's end of life. "Today's announcements are created to respond to your feedback and make it easier, faster, and cheaper to deploy a modern desktop". So for example when Redstone 5 arrives next month, it'll be supported until Spring 2022, but 19U1, six months later, will only have 18 months so it will bork from Autumn, erm 2021.

Today's announcement adds an extra six months of support, with all now supported Windows 10 versions (1607 through 1803) supported for 30 months from their original release date.

We fixed an issue for people with multiple monitors where if the Open or Save Dialog was moved between monitors some elements might become unexpectedly tiny. And also an engineer is appointed to a company to fix anything that breaks. Microsoft has mounted this.Shatter events mounted in this preview embody one precipitated by a pen writing on Edge web notes, as neatly as Activity Manager crashes, Settings crashes for multi-video display setups, and a shatter that occurred when clicking the Verify link on the Accounts Environment page. "Based on your feedback, some of the things we're focusing on include improvements to the visual design and continuing to integrate Office and Microsoft Edge into Sets better to enhance workflow".

Please try it out and let us know what you think by tweeting at @MicrosoftToDo on Twitter! It also noted that the Windows 7 ESU will be sold on a per-device basis and the price will increase each year. Instead, Microsoft says it is now giving IT admins more time to prepare their systems for updates.
