Windows 10 Timeline Feature Won't Arrive with Fall Creators Update

Windows 10

When Microsoft officially announced the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update back in early May, one of the most highly anticipated features was Timeline. The new process will mimic the way Microsoft staggers its Windows updates to consumers to better address bugs afflicting specific devices and systems configurations.

One has to ask whether this can be attributed to the rapid release cycle of Windows 10. It seems the Redmond company is once again trying to encourage users to update their systems, but this time the situation is slightly different.

As part of this push, Microsoft is reminding people that the original version of Windows 10 (build 1507) is now at end-of-service and no longer supported.

This version has reached End Of Life (EOL) on May 9, 2017, and Microsoft has stopped shipping monthly security updates as a result. Microsoft supplies updates to keep the OS secure but if users aren't updating, then they will remain compromised.




"Click on Update now on the notification to update your device".

(Thanks for sticking with us.) Microsoft hasn't revealed when the Fall Creators Update will debut, but members of the Windows Insider Program have gained access to more and more features over the last few months.

That said, at least a complete clean installation will actually work to clear out problems and bugs, unless you're running particularly nasty state-actor level malware, but for most people, such drastic action won't be needed, and nor will such high-level malware be part of the problem. It was expected to arrive with the Fall Creators Update but Microsoft today announced that it would be delayed. These users will also see a subsequent prompt to review their privacy settings.

He adds that "Once your machine is ready to update to the Creators Update, you still have choice over when that update happens as I described earlier in my April blog". Knowing that Microsoft will release an update in the spring, you can expect Timeline to arrive around March instead of September. Users are now able to audit, configure and manage their Windows system and application exploit mitigation settings from the Windows Defender Security Center (WDSC). We will continue to evolve our approach in providing a great Windows experience.
