Microsoft is about to launch it's Spring Creators Update of its Windows 10 operating system. This will revamp many of the features on the OS. The major changes to look out for are improved HDR support, better DPI support, changes to Fluent Design and a feature called "Timeline".
HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. In a nutshell, it is a technology that improves the contrast in a picture and can make images look much better than they are on Standard Dynamic Range. Revamped HDR support on Windows 10 will include HDR video calibration; however it will only be limited to select PCs that actually support the technology on their hardware.
DPI stands for Dots per Inch. One major advantage that Mac had over Windows for some time is that Macs handle images on large high-resolution displays much better than Windows PCs do. Therefore, with the upcoming update, Microsoft decided to turn the table. Visual content on high-resolution displays is now expected to look very sharp.
Fluent Design consists of a collection of visual effects and various actions on Windows 10 graphical user interface. It evolved from Metro panels of Windows 8, but it is much more than that. Various effects, such as blur, and seamless switching between different elements on the screen, along with the abilities to drag them anywhere and draw on top of them, are the components of Fluent Design.
Timeline is a feature that will help you to pick up where you left off when you switch between devices. This applies to many Windows-based apps, especially the most widely used ones, such as Edge browser and Office. It is powered by Cortana artificial intelligence.
Spring Creators Update will be officially supported by Microsoft until the October 2019, by which time there are likely to be some other major updates released. We can probably expect an entirely new version of Windows by that time.
