While no solution is totally safe, Microsoft now has a free, specialized version of its Edge browser specifically designed to protect you online: Windows Device Application Guard, or WDAG. WDAG was originally developed for Windows ... Read More »

Soon you’ll be able to pay bills inside Outlook

Just days after notifying users that bill-pay reminders are coming to Outlook.com, Microsoft took the extra step and said that you’ll be able to soon actually be able to pay those bills via email, too. Outlook.com users will “soon” be able to click a button and trigger payments right from within the Web service’s interface, Microsoft announced at its Build ... Read More »

Microsoft’s mobile strategy: Create Windows-like app ‘experiences’ for smartphones

Windows watchers worried what would become of Microsoft after a sweeping reorganization that emphasized “experiences,” rather than Windows.

How Microsoft’s Windows ML machine learning could help apps anticipate your needs

Microsoft is using machine learning to make its Windows apps a lot smarter.

Microsoft lets you gift digital PC games now, but the Xbox experience still sucks on computers

Over five years after the Microsoft Store launched in Windows 8, it’s finally adding a feature that Steam has offered since the Windows 7 era: the ability to gift digital games. Microsoft enabled digital game gifting for select Xbox One titles last fall. Today, the company announced that PC games and DLC in the Microsoft Store can now be gifted, ... Read More »

What still isn’t clear about the future of Windows after Build 2018

We leave Microsoft’s Build developer conference with more questions than answers about the state of Windows, and that’s not a good thing. We wrote rather optimistically about a March reorganization that erased “Windows” from the roles of senior management. Microsoft never answered the underlying questions that reshuffling posed: Is Microsoft Windows as important as it once was? Is the PC? ... Read More »
