Windows 10 Fall Creators Update: 10 key enterprise features

Microsoft will release the next major update for Windows 10 on October 17, six months after the last one, the Creators Update. The company has been offering sneak peeks at the upcoming release, named the Fall Creators Update, through its Windows Insider program. We’ve been keeping track of the Insider preview builds for the fall release as they’ve rolled out.

Most of what the Fall Creators update will add to the OS will be under-the-hood features — some new, some revised, and many related to security. Here are some improvements that enterprise users and IT pros should know about.

Better OneDrive file management

In current versions of Windows 10, OneDrive appears as a folder in File Explorer. When you put files into the OneDrive folder while signed into Windows 10 with a business or personal Microsoft account, they’re uploaded to the cloud. If you sign into another Windows 10 computer with this same account, the files in your OneDrive folder will be downloaded to that computer. Having access to your files from any Windows 10 device is handy, but this automatic syncing behavior may not be convenient if your device is connected to a spotty Wi-Fi signal or is low on storage space. That said, you can limit syncing to certain folders within your OneDrive, but anything within those folders is synced.

What’s more, if you have folders and files stored online only, they don’t appear in your OneDrive folder in File Explorer. To see them, you have to right-click the OneDrive icon in the notifications area of the taskbar and choose “View online” from the pop-up menu; your default browser will open to your cloud OneDrive.
