As we move out of summer, Windows 10 users will be bracing themselves for the second feature update of the year. If all goes to plan, this should be along in the next month or two. We take our now traditional early peek at what new features we can expect to see on our desktops in a few weeks time.

We thought it might be useful to provide a brief overview of the mobile world in our how to section this month.
