Microsoft Updates Windows 10 With a Top iOS Feature

Microsoft is still doing its best to convince us that Windows 10 is the best operating system, and they could even succeed in their endeavor. There might never be a Windows 11 or 20, as all hints point to the possibility of Microsoft forever updating its latest operating system.

Windows Latest reports that a new exciting feature is on its way to Windows 10. It’s a new and efficient way of handling apps, and Microsoft might have inspired themselves from iOS on this one.

Beware of the ‘Archive apps’ setting

This new setting works by allowing the user to delete apps while still keeping the related files and settings. If you choose to reinstall the app at some point in the future, it will work as it did before with all of your desired settings in their place. The new feature was spotted in some preview builds of Windows 10 that are offered to Windows Insiders.

Microsoft explains the feature by saying:

To save storage space and Internet bandwidth, apps you don’t use frequently will be archived automatically. Your files and other data will be saved. The next time you use an archived app, it’ll connect to the internet to restore the full version (if it’s still available).

This method will grant a great way of disposing of unnecessary apps much easily. Knowing that you can restore the old settings anytime you wish, you won’t be reluctant anymore when it comes to hitting the uninstall option.

Windows 10 is installed on over one billion devices worldwide, with the vast majority of them being PCs. Oddly enough, more users are still clinging to the good old Windows 7: more than 1.5 billion people. Microsoft ended the technical support for the older operating system this year in January, but it seems that most people are still trusting it more than they do in the case of Windows 10.
