Microsoft's Recent Windows Patch Has Caused Start Menu Problems

If you do not wish to answer the call, you can decline these phone calls via the PC and even send a custom text when you decline.

You can also fire up a phone call using the in-app dialer or direct from your contacts list.

One useful update for busy people is to the on-system calendar which now lets you add events and reminders that syncs with your Calendar app, so you don't have to open a separate window for that anymore.

Microsoft further noted that the app will also keep a log of recent calls - at this point, privacy activists' hackles may well be starting to bristle - and you can access that call history and make calls to folks directly from there as an extra convenience.

Build 18999 makes the ability to move and resize Cortana's window available to all Insiders, and calling is now available in the Your Phone app.

The new Windows 10-to-Android calling feature that leaked last month is finally here for Windows 10 Insiders to test if they're on the Fast Ring. The PC should have minimum Windows 10 build 18362.356. We'd have thought that this was perhaps a typo, and that it should be 19H2 perhaps, except for the mention of the specific build afterwards.

Angelina Jolie to grace red carpet at Maleficent: Mistress of Evil premiere
Following suit with every Maleficent premiere thus far, Jolie brought a couple members of her brood to the red carpet in Rome. Brad recently did a press tour of his own, leading up to the September 20 premiere of his new space movie, Ad Astra .

Fixed an issue where certain 2D apps (like Feedback Hub, Microsoft Store, 3D Viewer) were incorrectly being treated as having protected content within Windows Mixed Reality and were blocking their content from being recorded.

Calls is actually available to all Windows 10 Insiders on the 19H1 build, version 1903, or newer, while the Android phone must be on version 7.0 Nougat or higher.

Initially, I believed that the Your Phone app is part of Microsoft's effort to get in a stronghold in the smartphone market after it lost on the hardware side. Again. Microsoft said that the printer issue that some devices suffered from after the earlier update was fixed in KB4524147 update that released out-of-band on October 3rd.

Microsoft fixed a deadlock in the Network and Sharing Center Control Panel, that could result in it not loading.

Fixed an issue where, when capturing a repro video while filing a bug via Feedback Hub in Windows Mixed Reality, you couldn't select Stop video. Microsoft are working with partners on getting their software updated with a fix, and most games have released patches to prevent PCs from experiencing this issue.
