Now that Microsoft has re-released their October 2018 Update for Windows 10 — and hopefully, this version sticks — it is time to take a closer look at some of the new features. This sixth feature update for Microsoft’s operating system is still on a limited number of systems and only available through manual update checks or by using the Media Creation Tool (MCT) or Update Assistant.
We’ll be spending this week looking at the most pertinent tweaks, upgrades and improvements.
The Display Feature
High Dynamic Range (HDR) – With more monitors supporting this technology, Microsoft has incorporated settings to help you tweak the appearance of HDR based content on a by display basis. Included in these new settings is an option for maximizing battery life when running HDR content on your device and calibration tools.
Wide Color Gamut (WCG) – If your monitor supports this display technology, you will also find settings alongside the HDR options for managing this display option.
