Moving ahead on their earlier announcement, Microsoft has dropped more details about their plans to bring Progressive Web Apps to Microsoft Store with the release of the Redstone 4 update. This means you can get notifications or interact with various Web-powered features, without installing any app package on your system. Further, it already reviewed almost 1.5 million candidates through which a "small initial set" of PWAs have been identified that will be indexed for Windows 10 users to test the experience over the coming weeks. It's bringing Progressive Web Apps (not to be confused with Universal Windows Platform apps, many of which are glorified websites) to Windows 10 with a new version of Edge that supports the necessary web technologies. PWAs will look and function the same as any other Store app, and will be packaged as an appx in Windows 10 - running in their own sandboxed container. Microsoft says a lot of modern machines are capable of playing HDR but need to be calibrated in the factory to be able to do so.

Microsoft has introduced a fresh preview build of Windows 10 with a raft of new features on board. You can see if your laptop is included by going to Settings Apps Video playback and seeing if you can switch the toggle to on to access a new calibration tool.

If you're anxious about your privacy after Windows Insider Build 17083 installed a Diagnostic Data Viewer on your computer, then you'll love this update.

"With our commitment to transparency and control, users can now delete the Windows Diagnostic Data that Microsoft has collected from your device".

With today's build, Microsoft has renamed the settings page under Update & Security from "Windows Defender" to "Windows Security" and redesigned the page. Reactivating it is as sample as glancing at the pause button placed at the top or at the bottom of the screen. Choosing a new intensive game? It now comes with new buttons that give you quick access to your captured footage, lets you toggle your microphone and camera and allows you to quickly change the title of your stream. Today's Preview build brings one of the longest changelogs, with a number of features receiving fixes and improvements.
