Microsoft has officially launched the Windows 10 November Update, with build 10586 now rolling out to all PC users of the operating system. The update includes a number of improvements, with many of them targeting business and enterprise customers.
The update also has the version number of 1511, to show it was released in November of 2015. In a blog post, Microsoft's Windows and Devices head Terry Myerson stated that this update now allows the company to "confidently recommend Windows 10 deployment to whole organizations." Here are some of the improvements he lists that are included in the November update:
- Performance in everyday tasks, such as boot time now nearly 30% faster than Windows 7 on the same device.
- With Cortana, you can use your device's pen to just scribble a note in the Cortana Notebook and Cortana will recognize the phone number, email address, and even physical address to help you set reminders. Cortana can also now keep track of your event and movie bookings too, sending you helpful reminders to know where to go and get there on time, plus the option to book and track an Uber. We're excited to make Cortana available in Japan, Australia, and Canada and India (in English) with features and experiences customized for each market.
- Microsoft Edge offers improved performance and security, along with tab preview, which allows you to hover over your open tabs and get a preview of what's on those websites without leaving the page you're on. Microsoft Edge now syncs your Favorites and Reading list items across devices so you can easily get back to the content you're interested in most. And, Cortana will now notify you of the best coupons from your favorite retailers such as Staples, Macys and Best Buy when shopping in Microsoft Edge.
