Cloud download Option in Windows 10 - What it cloud download option available in Windows 10/Insider previews builds.

Cloud download Option in Windows 10 - What it cloud download option available in Windows 10/Insider previews builds.

Cloud download option under Settings -> Update & Security -> Recovery, clicking on the option will not do anything, some of you might have seen this in the latest Windows 10 Insider preview 18963  article available on the official blog, we will explain that in this post.

So, what is this Cloud download option?

If you are Mac user, you might have noticed that there was an option to download the OS directly from servers and reinstall on the device in case we encounter some bugs, this new option was believed to work on the same way in Windows. 

Some history..

If your Windows 10 is causing some issues, the last option was to finally reinstall the OS, but for that you need USB or external media you have boot and perform the installation right?, you don't need that now. Because clicking on this new cloud download option will download and install windows automatically.


But why when reset this PC option is already available?, this was the question that arose on my mind when i first heard about this, then after researching i found that Reset this PC will reinstall the OS from the already created image, but Cloud download option will directly connect to servers and will download and install the updated OS, that was the simple difference i found but again i think this option won't solve most of the problems, particularly when the issue we are already facing was network connectivity issue.

Only the old options will help us on that time, hope Microsoft won't remove the option in future.

What do you think..?

Windows 10 insider preview 18963 is one of the insider preview that has lot of new features you can try

Windows 10 Insider preview 18963 was the all new Windows 20H1 edition released today by Microsoft. Those who feel downloading latest Windows 10 insider preview is waste of time(as Microsoft releases nearly 4GB worth insider OS everyweek, but when you installed you might find only 1 new feature with bug fixes most of the time) you can try installing this new windows 10 insider preview 18963 as it contains many new features.

1) Changing the virtual desktop Name..


We are using Windows 10 virtual desktop now and then, but there was no option to set a name for that desktop, Microsoft fixed that issue, so you can now name your virtual desktop, which might come in handy for users who use lot of virtual desktops and confuse on which virtual desktop the particular app was running.

2) Now you can GPU temperature by default.

Check this post for how to[click to view].

3) An improved Optional features page.

Microsoft has moved the Optional features page to settings window in Earlier editions, but that doesn't gave the feel like using optional features from control panel, mainly because it doesn't contain all the options migrated. Microsoft was aware of that, and has made lot of improvements to this build.


Just give it a try. 

I will post download links for Windows 10 insider preview 18963 iso once it was available in public domains.

You can read the complete post here in this official blog.

GPU temperature will now show on Windows 10 - How to view GPU temperature on Windows 10 latest version

Tracking GPU temperature was one of the painful part for many, especially you will know this if you are a gamer. Though Windows 10 has many third party tools for tracking GPU temperature, the option was not available by default. But that was history, because in the upcoming Windows 10 update, codenamed 20H1 you can easily track the temperature of your dedicated GPU right in the task manager itself.

Microsoft confirmed this, in the latest Windows 10 insider preview build 18963.


One of the longstanding requests we’ve been tracking for Task Manager is to add temperature monitoring support, and with today’s build we’re making progress on that ask. If you have a dedicated GPU card, we will now bubble up the current temperature next to its listing in the Performance Tab.
So, if you have Windows 10 insider preview build 18963, stop using the third party apps, and start using the inbuilt option. You can do that by pressing ctrl +shift +Esc keys -> Performance tab.

Remember to give feedback to Microsoft, if you face any issues..

Cortana appears on Windows Store, A rare move that might separate Cortana and Windows !

Cortana appears on Windows Store, A rare move that might separate Cortana and Windows !

Microsoft's Assistant Cortana, has appeared in Windows Store today, the rare move that rises questions whether Cortana will do everything like before or will it be a part of upcoming 19H2 build OS. 

              Starting Windows 10 May update 2019, Windows 10, Version 1903 Microsoft has separated the Cortana and Search bar. But recent spot by Verge shows,

Microsoft might have planned to allow all users to manually install Cortana in its upcoming build or it could be also because of providing instant updates only to Cortana..

We are not sure, why Microsoft decided to provide separate app on Windows Store,all of sudden as there is no official Comment as of now..

But, One thing is for sure, if Cortana was further separated then users might start installing other assistants that are better than this will be proved soon.
