Is Android getting multi-window support in time for Google I/O?

Is Android getting multi-window support in time for Google I/O?
Android 5.1 is now out in the wild, but it might be holding a few secrets.
The diligent folks at Phandroid have dug up something interesting in the code: references to apps running in multiple windows. The change could be announced at Google I/O in May.
There’s not much detail to go on here — it’s essentially just a couple of lines referring to “multiwindows” hidden inside the software — and as yet Google hasn’t said anything about what’s going to be on show at its developer conference in a couple of months.
With smartphone screens getting bigger all the time, it would make sense for Android to offer support for side-by-side apps. It’s a feature already available on some Samsung devices and would be another key differentiator when comparing Android against iOS.
On smaller screens, multi-window support could quickly become a confusing mess, particularly when trying to drag and resize panels to get everything important in view.
On the other hand, many of today’s smartphones and tablets are easily big enough to support two apps on screen at the same time — and with Office for Android now available it could be a useful feature for those who are looking to stay productive away from the desk.
Google I/O is going to be held in San Francisco from May 28–29. We’re hoping to hear more about Project Ara (Google’s modular phone), Android Auto and Google’s efforts in virtual reality — get the latest from our I/O hub page.

Major BitLocker encryption security fail caused by new Windows 10 update?

It seems that Microsoft has dropped the ball on the security front, as the new autumn update for Windows 10, while introducing lots of juicy new features, unfortunately also messes up BitLocker encryption – at least for some folks.
It's not unheard of for updates to break things as well as fix stuff, of course, although this is a surprisingly major Windows 10 hitch when it comes to the security of user data.
Apparently, according to some users posting on the TechNet forum (spotted by Neowin), if you do a clean install of Windows 10 build 10586 (the new November update), you can't enable BitLocker encryption.
BitLocker encryption still works just fine in the build of Windows 10 previous to the November update.
And if you had BitLocker encryption enabled previously before applying the November update, it won't cause any problems with the system – unless you later turn encryption off, and then try to enable it again, in which case you could get the same error message and failure as those applying a fresh install (something about a parameter being incorrect, by all accounts).
So be warned – if you've updated Windows and are using BitLocker encryption, it might be an idea just to leave it well alone until Microsoft manages to look into this issue.
Users have said that this affects the hardware encryption mode of BitLocker, and it could depend on the exact hardware configuration you're running whether or not you encounter problems.
The new Windows 10 update applies a variety of stability and performance tweaks, new features for the Edge browser, tweaks to Cortana and business features to make the deployment of the OS easier for IT admins.

Windows 10 update might FINALLY convince you to uninstall Google Chrome

MICROSOFT has taken aim at Google Chrome with a slew of new web browser features added to its latest Windows 10 update.
The Redmond-based firm have released a brand new Windows 10 Insider Preview Build, which features big improvements to the Microsoft Edge browser.
One of the headline new features is designed to make it easier for Chrome users to transition from Google's popular internet browser to Microsoft Edge.

Chrome users will now be able to import their settings and cookies to Edge for the first time ever.
Microsoft said this will make it easier for Windows 10 users to “make the move to Microsoft Edge” and turn it into “their primary browser”.
The Windows 10 update also makes it quicker for Microsoft Edge users to close tabs - with the X close button always visible and not obscured by anything.

This option is also available on Google Chrome, which data shows is currently the market leading internet browser by far.
Data from Netmarketshare claims 47.71 per cent of people use different versions of Google Chrome, compared to 4.89 per cent who use Microsoft Edge.
However the stats, from May 2017, show 13.71 per cent are still using the almost four year-old Internet Explorer version 11.
If those users were to make the jump to Microsoft Edge, then the Redmond-based firm could take a big chunk out of Chrome’s market share.
The Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16226 was released to those inside the Fast ring yesterday.
The update features a great new addition to the calculator – a time-saving currency converter function, which can also be accessed offline.
The feature was outlined in a Microsoft blog, which said: “Since the launch of Windows 10, one of the top customer feedback requests we get is to include a Currency Converter function in Calculator.  Wait no longer!
“As of desktop version 10.1706.1602.0 (included with the Fall Creators Update, available for update via store as we speak), you’ll find “Currency” as the top item under the “Converters” menu.
“It does most everything you’d expect from a Currency Converter, all expressed within the fresh and shiny Fluent Design System we rolled out last month.
“One aspect of the feature that we think is interesting is an offline mode…so if you’re roaming internationally and want to see how much that train ticket or souvenir is going to cost without rolling up extra data charges, we’ve got you covered.”
The Windows 10 update also includes a whole host of new emojis with Emoji 5.0 .
Brand new emojis include a zombie, a mermaid, a vampire, a wizard or a fairy.

Revealed: Microsoft’s high-tech plan to stop laptop thieves

Microsoft is looking into new ways to guard laptops against theft, with plans to allow the remote wiping or disabling of a stolen notebook, at least according to a new patent that has been uncovered.
We are, of course, used to this sort of technology with our smartphones these days, but a patent spotted by MS Power User shows that Microsoft is mulling over extending this type of anti-theft coverage to notebooks, or rather more specifically its ‘always connected’ laptops powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips.
Because these notebooks – which we heard a lot more about at Computex – use Snapdragon SoCs (System-on-a-Chip), they have LTE mobile data built-in, hence the always connected moniker, and the possibility of allowing for a remote signal to be sent to disable the device, no matter where it is, or what has been done to it (at least theoretically).
According to the patent, the disable command would be actionable even if the stolen machine has had its SIM card removed, or cellular connectivity has been switched off. That would obviously be necessary to stop the thief from easily circumventing disablement defenses.
In the patent, Microsoft states: “[Even] if the device is not capable of general use of the cellular network (e.g., due to a physical authentication module, such as a subscriber identity module, being absent and/or due to a software restriction on cellular network access), disablement communications are still permitted across the cellular network.
“Thus, efforts by an unauthorized possessor of the device to prevent disablement by removing the physical authentication module are thwarted. Likewise, turning the cellular service off using software settings at the device also does not prevent the device from being disabled via cellular network communication.”
Always protected?
So, this could be another major security boon for Microsoft’s Snapdragon-powered always-connected notebooks, doubling up on the fact that the incorporation of LTE mobile broadband also avoids the need to use potentially insecure public Wi-Fi hotspots when out and about.
But on the other hand, it does raise potential privacy issues in terms of the laptops being open to tracking no matter what precautions the user might take to try and shake off those chains. In other words, in the same way that this avenue of remote access can’t be disabled by a thief, it can’t be disabled by the laptop owner either.
And naturally, this news has already caused some concern and chatter online about the potential of hackers abusing the system to maliciously wipe a device.
At this point, we have to throw in the usual caveat that this is just a patent, and so it’s potentially something which will never see the light of day. However, it’s certainly an interesting avenue which Microsoft is exploring, and the potential benefits are likely to outweigh any downsides from our perspective.
Of course, there are anti-theft systems already out there for laptops, such as LoJack software which provides a third-party location tracking and theft recovery system, and is used on some laptops from vendors such as Dell.

Install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

The recommended (and easiest) way to get SP1 is to turn on automatic updating in Windows Update in Control Panel and wait for Windows 7 to notify you that SP1 is ready to install. It takes about 30 minutes to install, and you'll need to restart your computer about halfway through the installation.
To check if Windows 7 SP1 is already installed on your PC, select the Start button, right-click Computer, and then select Properties.

If Service Pack 1 is listed under Windows edition, SP1 is already installed on your PC.

Before you begin

Check if your PC is 32-bit or 64-bit

You’ll need to know if your PC is running a 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) version of Windows 7. Select the Start button, right-click Computer, and then select Properties. The version of Windows 7 is displayed next to System type.

Disk space requirements

Check to make sure your PC has enough free disk space to install SP1.
Installation methodEstimated amount of free disk space needed
Windows update
x86-based (32-bit): 750 MB
x64-based (64-bit): 1050 MB
Downloading SP1 from the Microsoft website
x86-based (32-bit): 4100 MB
x64-based (64-bit): 7400 MB

Back up important files

It’s a good idea to back up your important files, photos, and videos to an external hard disk, USB flash drive, or the cloud before installing the update.

Plug in and connect to the Internet

Make sure your PC is plugged in to power and you’re connected to the Internet.

Disable antivirus software

Some antivirus software might prevent SP1 from installing or slow down the installation. You can temporarily disable your antivirus software before the installation. If you do so, make sure you’re aware of the risks that might be involved and re-enable the antivirus software as soon as SP1 is done installing. 

Installing Windows 7 SP1 using Windows Update (recommended)

If your PC is set to automatically install updates, you’ll be prompted by Windows Update to install SP1. Follow the instructions to install the update.
To manually install SP1 from Windows Update:
  1. Select the Start button > All programs > Windows Update.
  2. In the left pane, select Check for updates.
  3. If any important updates are found, select the link to view available updates. In the list of updates, select Service Pack for Microsoft Windows (KB976932) and then select OK.

  4. Select Install updates. 
    Picture of security shield icon
     You might be asked for an admin password or to confirm your choice.
  5. Follow the instructions to install SP1.
  6. After SP1 is installed, sign in to your PC. You might see a notification indicating whether the update was successful. If you disabled your antivirus software before the installation, make sure you turn it back on.

Downloading and installing Windows SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center

If you’re unable to install SP1 from Windows Update, you can download the installation package from the Microsoft Download Center and then install SP1 manually.
  1. Go to the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 download page on the Microsoft website.
  2. Select Install Instructions to see which packages are available for download, and make note of the one that you need.
  3. Select the appropriate language from the drop-down list, and then select Download.
  4. Select the packages you need to install, select Next, and then follow the instructions to install SP1. Your PC might restart a few times during the installation.
  5. After SP1 is installed, sign in to your PC. You might see a notification indicating whether the update was successful. If you disabled your antivirus software before the installation, make sure you turn it back on.

Troubleshoot problems installing Windows SP1

If you try to install SP1 and see an error message that the installation wasn’t successful, this might be because there’s a problem with the Windows Servicing Store that is used to install updates or because your antivirus software is preventing the update from being installed.
To try and fix the problem, follow these steps and then try to install SP1 again.

Download and run the System Update Readiness Tool

  1. Select the link in the table that corresponds with the version of Windows running on your PC.

    Windows versionLink to Microsoft Download Center
    Windows 7 32-bit (x86)Download
    Windows 7 64-bit (x64)Download
    On the Microsoft Download Center page, select your language and then select Download. It might take a few minutes for the tool to download and install.
  2. To install the tool immediately, select Open or Run and then follow the instructions. To use the tool later, select Save and download the installation files to your PC.
  3. On the Windows Update Standalone Installer screen, select Yes or OK.
  4. On the Installation complete screen, select Close.
  5. Try installing the service pack again.

Run the Windows Update troubleshooter

If your PC isn’t able to find or install updates, the Windows Update troubleshooter might be able to fix the problem.
  1. Select the Start button, and then select Control Panel.
  2. In the search box, enter troubleshooter and then select Troubleshooting from the list of results.
  3. Under System and Security, select Fix problems with Windows Update and then follow the instructions.
After the troubleshooter is done, try installing the service pack again.

Not upgraded to Windows 10? This latest shock news may prove why that's a bad idea

The world has just been hit by one of the worst cyber attacks in history.WannaCry managed to infected millions of PCs across the globe and even brought some of the UK’s hospitals to their knees.The deadly virus, which was able to spread in hours, infected computers with malicious software which then blocked access to systems and files.Whoever was behind the bug then demanded that users pay a ransom to unlock their devices.Victims were even warned that their files would be destroyed within days if they did not pay up using Bitcoin, the world’s biggest virtual currency.

At first it was first thought that PC owners using Windows XP were most likely to be hit by the terrifying bug but new data has come to light which could disprove this.Cyber security firm, Kaspersky, has just released some new data which suggests that it was actually Windows 7 that was hit hardest by the attack.To make matters worse, Windows 7 still runs on around 45% of all machines making it a hugely popular operating system.Microsoft say that had released a patch for Windows 7 back in March but it seems many users hadn’t updated to the latest version.The US technology giant also says that its latest Windows 10 software is the only OS completely safe from WannaCry.

Windows 10 Creators Update - Microsoft reveals when more new features will be released

WINDOWS 10 Creators update may have just been pushed-out but Microsoft appears to be getting ready to reveal another set of new features.

After months of waiting, Microsoft finally released it Creators Update earlier this month.
This latest version of Windows 10 brings a host of improvements to the popular operating system including major updates to virtual reality support and social media.
It also includes an all-new Paint 3D app which makes it easier than ever to build and create 3D models and items.
Paint 3D offers a simple way to get in to 3D modelling, with a number of pre-set models alongside customised options, all of which can be shared online and even printed in to real-life.
Microsoft's Windows 10 has proven extremely popular with the US technology firm revealing that there are over 400 million active devices across the world.
This figure makes the software the fastest-adopted version of Windows ever.
Now it seems Microsoft wants its ever-growing number of users to know exactly when they will get the next update.
To do this Microsoft has just announced that it's committing to a predictable twice-per-year feature release schedule.
This means updates will arrive on users' PCs every March and September with Microsoft already confirming an update is coming in the Autumn 2017.
Each Windows 10 feature release will be serviced and supported for 18 months. This is consistent with Microsoft's current Windows 10 approach, but adds further clarity and predictability to organisations by aligning with Office 365 ProPlus.
In addition, System Center Configuration Manager will support this new aligned update model for Office 365 ProPlus and Windows 10, making both easier to deploy and keep up to date.
Speaking about the new updates Microsoft said on in a blog: "We’re thrilled that Windows 10 continues to be the fastest-adopted version of Windows ever, with more than 400 million monthly active devices and ever growing adoption in the enterprise.
"Our customers tell us a big part of that is because Windows 10 is the most secure version of Windows ever released and they see greater economic impact of their investment.
"A key part of that economic impact is staying current with Windows 10 with feature and security updates.
"This approach has made large-scale, costly wipe-and-replace Windows deployments every few years a thing of the past."
Along with the news of regular updates, Microsoft has just revealed why it believed users should switch to its Edge browser.
The latest head-to-head video pits the latest version of Edge, which is included as part of the new Windows 10 Creators Update, against Chrome and Firefox running on three identical Surface Book laptops.
According to Microsoft, Firefox managed to get seven hours of video-looping before it flatlined, Chrome passed the nine hour mark, and Microsoft Edge lasted for an impressive 12-and-a-half hours.
Using an open-source test called BrowserEfficiencyTest, which Microsoft built in-house, the company discovered that its own Edge web browser uses some 31 per cent less power than Google Chrome.

Microsoft unveils new Surface laptop

Microsoft unveils new Surface laptop

Microsoft has unveiled a new Surface laptop to compete with the Macbook Air.
The device will go on sale on 15 June with a starting price of $999 (£770). It has a 34cm (13.5 inch) screen and 14 hours of battery life, the firm said.
The tech giant also revealed a new edition of its Windows 10 operating system aimed at schools and designed to run on low-cost computers.
Experts said the move was intended to help Microsoft compete with Google in the schools market.
Microsoft Surface boss Panos Panay said the new laptop weighed 1.25kg (2.76lb) — lighter than the Macbook Air.
He also said it would run the new Windows 10S operating system and, despite the price, had been designed with students who were about to leave school in mind.
Classic BlackBerry gets Android revival
Samsung Galaxy S8 hides home button and gains Bixby AI
Carolina Milanesi, an analyst at Creative Strategies, said: “Apple’s Macbook Air is also popular with students and it hasn’t produced a new model for a while.
“So this is all about Microsoft trying to steal a march on its old rival.”
Windows 10S promises stronger virus protection and better battery life, and will be available on third party PCs with a starting price of $189.
Microsoft and Apple have long dominated the school computing market, but they have struggled with the recent rise of Chromebooks — low-cost PCs running Google’s Chrome operating system (OS).
According to consulting firm Futuresource, 58% of devices sold to US schools in 2016 were Chromebooks, while 22% ran Windows operating systems and 19% ran Apple ones.
Microsoft said devices using Windows 10S would only run apps provided through the Windows Store, which would help maintain their security and speed.
It also said the OS would be easier for teachers to set up and manage.
Ms Milanesi said: “I think it’s a compelling proposition for schools — but the first question is how easy will it be for schools who have already invested in Chromebooks to make the transition?
She added: “Third party hardware suppliers will be asking what is in this for them, especially if they are making hardware for the Chrome operating system too.
“Microsoft has already convinced some suppliers such as Acer to come on board, but it may have to offer incentives to keep them engaged.

Microsoft patched 'NSA hack' Windows flaws before leak

Microsoft says it had already fixed software flaws linked to an alleged breach of the global banking system before they were exposed last week.
On Friday, a group called the Shadow Brokers published details of several hacking tools, indicating they had been used by the US National Security Agency (NSA) to spy on money transfers.
Reports suggested Microsoft's Windows operating system remained vulnerable.
But the firm revealed it had in fact addressed the problem in March.
"Customers have expressed concerns around the risk [Shadow Brokers'] disclosure potentially creates," it said in a security update.
"Our engineers have investigated the disclosed exploits, and most of the exploits are already patched."
The company has not, however, revealed how it became aware of the flaws.
Microsoft normally acknowledges third parties who tip it off to problems, but has not done so in this case.
The Reuters news agency reported that the company had told it that neither the NSA nor any other part of the US government had informed it of the hacking tools' existence.
That calls into question how Microsoft learned of the issue - tech blog Ars Technica commented it was "highly unlikely" that the patch and leak would both have occurred so close together by coincidence.
'God's eye'
Whisteblower Edward Snowden had previously leaked documents in 2013 that alleged the NSA had carried surveillance of the Brussels-based Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (Swift) for several years, but did not specify how.
Swift allows the world's banks to send payment orders and other messages about large financial transactions in a "secure and reliable" manner.
It is used by about 11,000 financial institutions. The allegation is that third parties - known as Swift Service Bureaus - that provide access to Swift's network were targeted by the NSA, rather than Swift itself.
"If Shadow Brokers' claims are indeed verified, it seems that the NSA sought to totally capture the backbone of [the] international financial system to have a God's eye [view] into a Swift Service Bureau - and potentially the entire Swift network," blogged security researcher Matt Suiche after the latest leak.
"If the US had a specific target in the region's financial system, NSA penetration offers [an alternative to] merely relying upon good faith compliance procedures, standard diplomatic requests, or collaborating with Swift."
Swift has not confirmed it was compromised.
"We have no evidence to suggest that there has ever been any unauthorised access to our network or messaging services," it said in a statement on Friday.

Microsoft Warns Windows 10 Update Has A Serious Problem

The ‘Anniversary Update’ is the largest and most important Windows 10 upgrade so far. It is also compulsory, but as it began rolling out reports followed that the mega update is causing PCs to freeze. Now Microsoft MSFT +0.82% has confirmed one major issue and admitted it currently does not have a fix...
Taking to its Microsoft Answers support site, the company has posted a new and self explanatory topic titled: ‘Windows 10 may freeze after installing the Anniversary Update’ and states there have been:
"Microsoft has received a small number of reports of Windows 10 freezing after installing the Anniversary Update on systems with the operating system stored on a solid-state drive (SSD) and apps and data stored on a separate drive. This issue does not occur when starting Windows 10 in Safe Mode. If you are experiencing this issue, we will be providing updates to this thread...We ask for your patience while we continue our investigation and please check back on this thread for an update."'The reference to “a small number” remains to be seen. The Reddit thread where these problems were first discussed has close to 1,000 comments from affected users and the Microsoft Answers page already has 35 pages of comments from distressed users at the time of publication. I have also been contacted by a number of affected users since writing about this last week.
Of course with a user base in the hundreds of millions, scale is impossible to tell but certainly even a small proportion can result in several million users being hit. I remain in discussions with Microsoft about the problem.
The good news is that while a fix is not ready, Microsoft does offer a workaround.
The company tells affected users to open the Recovery Console and rollback to a previous Windows 10 build or even Windows 7 or Windows 8 if their entitlement still exists. Given the problem stops many users’ PCs from booting correctly, Microsoft offers a solution to do this from Safe Mode:

Microsoft's Windows 10 'CShell' adaptable UI in images and video (exclusive)

At the beginning of this year, I exclusively revealed that Microsoft is working on a brand new Windows Shell, called "Composable Shell," or "CShell," that's goal is to bring an adaptive, scalable UI across all types of device form factors, including PCs, tablets, phones, Xbox and HoloLens. Up until now, we haven't actually seen CShell in action. Thanks to Microsoft's recent accidental release of internal pre-release builds, that all changes today.
Here's a quick recap before we dive in. CShell is Microsoft's new Windows Shell that will eventually replace the existing Windows Shell in future releases of Windows 10. It's an adaptable shell that can scale in real time, adapting to different screen sizes and orientations on the fly. CShell is a shell modularized into sub-components, which can transition between those components when required, making for a far more flexible user experience on devices that have multiple form factors.
Shared UI and Continuum
CShell is a big deal. It allows Microsoft to build one shell that scales across form factors, and in this article you will see exactly what that means. Let's start with the Start screen, which with Windows 10 Mobile differs slightly from the Start experience found on desktop. For example, Windows 10 desktop has large tile sizes, context menus and a few additional options that Windows 10 Mobile doesn't.
