Microsoft's Windows 10 is the best operating system for business and educational applications. Microsoft is always considered a minor player when it comes to designing and artistic purposes. But with recent onset devices like Surface Pro 4 and Surface Studio, Microsoft want to expand its OS to the area of creation. After constant development and periodic addition of new features to Windows 10, it is now aiming for artists and creators with its new update.
Windows 10 Creators Update
The Anniversary update pretty much explained how much potential windows has. It has been the playground for Microsoft in testing the area of creation. Its new features in Anniversary update Windows Ink Workspace and New Paint pretty much speaks the interest Microsoft has for design and arts.
After a pretty good response, it is now rolling a complete update called Creators Update that allows creators to utilize the OS to the fullest. Even though the update may not bring big and deep updates like the anniversary edition, it is sure adding value to the near-perfect OS Windows is.
Termed as Windows 10 version 1703, it will be out for download on April 11. This update will make the famous Surface line more productive and easy-to-use.
With a mixed bag of few major upgrades and many minor upgrades, look at all the new and revised features below
This is the next-level paint you used to know. As the name suggests, drawing in 3D is fully made easy and flexible. Not mentioning the original tools, 3D tools and Remix 3D are the newest additions. While 3D objects is self-explanatory, Remix 3D is the hub for sharing and downloading already created 3D objects. Basically Remix 3D is the community for 3D creations.
While Gaming Bar allows you to stream on the go (Windows+G), Game Mode allows you to prioritize games to get good framerate and smooth performance. A new Gaming option is added in the settings menu that controls all the aforementioned features.
- Night light settings for changing screen color based on the time
- Pick own Color for your Themes and Themes setting is made easy
- New section for Troubleshooting for finding and fixing common problems
- Improved Edge Browser with a new "Set aside: feature for controlling tabs
- Ink Workspace can now be used on Photos and Videos

In addition to these, there are ton of bug fixes and minor additions that can be revealed once we get the update.
Does Creators Update lives up its name? Definitely. The new addition Paint 3D itself is enough for Microsoft to improve its game in design. Also, Paint 3D holds an immense potential with its new social network for models and also the option to export your model to a 3D printer or games like Minecraft pretty much sums up the huge hit it will become.
But with everything said, Do not expect Creators Update to be big like the Anniversary update that added a lot of features. Instead it made Microsoft one step closer to make its devices the perfect tools for Creation. Either way, it is the update no one should miss. Who Knows? There might be an artist in you waiting to be awakened.
