Microsoft Corporation: Older Nokia Lumia Windows Phone Devices Get Windows 10…

Microsoft has announced that the long-awaited Windows 10 Mobile over-the-air update for some older Lumia phones with Windows Phone 8.1 has officially started its rollout.

The company has released a new cumulative update 10586.420 for both the Windows 10 PC and Windows 10 Mobile. Microsoft intends to bring the tool to the general Windows user audience with the Anniversary Update.

The Start Fresh utility is here after first being tipped in May. While upgrading does take a little bit of time and patience, the upgrade itself to Windows 10 is free, or rather it has been up to this point.

This tool is now available from the Settings app and installs a clean copy of the most recent version of Windows 10, as well as removing apps that were installed on the PC. Not only do we get an easy option to nuke all the junk on new PCs, we have a way to wipe a Win10 PC clean without going through the Media creation tool step and figuring out how to boot from a USB drive.

In the latest build, issues with Microsoft Edge have been fixed, where the browser would crash when scrolling through a certain webpage, and the smartphone's switch to vibration mode is also addressed when disconnecting from Bluetooth speakers.

Windows 10 has been the center of countless controversies over the past year. The tool actually hit the Internet on Wednesday after leak-a-holic Walking Cat found the download link for the tool on Microsoft's download site. The tech giant added more color to the File Explorer icon, fixed small and blurry Taskbar icons, and even updated Blu-Ray and Wi-Fi icons a week ago.

Windows users have always been able to reach the same result by downloading a clean disk image of Windows, then installing that on a crapware-filled PC. There's a Windows Store update will let you use Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Sway Online without needing Office installed. Moreover, the users are requested to look into that product feature and provide feedback on the same.
