Windows 10 S Build 17093 Helps Users Ditch Passwords

Windows 10 S Build 17093 Helps Users Ditch Passwords

Windows 10 Progressive web apps

Now, the company is enlisting Windows 10 S users to the cause.

Microsoft is releasing an early preview of the February 2018 feature update for Word Mobile, Excel Mobile, and PowerPoint Mobile. But now Microsoft is declaring it's "all in" for supporting PWAs in Windows 10, too.

PWAs are basically web apps that behave like native apps, able to work offline, send notifications and be installed on PCs.

Diagnostic Data Viewer was introduced by Microsoft on the Data Privacy Day last week, which was followed by this new page appearing in the Settings app. DDV lets users review the diagnostic data your device is sending to Microsoft, and now this data can also be deleted by users. However, there are plans to enable Service Worker and various technologies to enable features such as push notifications through PWAs with the release of EdgeHTML17 on stable Windows 10 builds in the coming future.

Aimed at students, Windows 10 S is a streamlined version of the operating system that is restricted to running apps from the Microsoft Store.

Microsoft Office is, for many people, the only place to turn to when they're looking for a good word processor, spreadseet programme or e-mail manager.

Wade gets Miami homecoming as Cavs clean house
He appeared in 46 games (three starts) for Cleveland, averaging 11.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 23.2 minutes. The former Miami player was traded back to the Heat from the Cavs as a part of a trading deal on Thursday.


The browsers' huge combined userbase gives developers an incentive to build PWAs, so could potentially bring apps to the Microsoft Store that would otherwise not be ported across - addressing one of the longstanding criticisms of the store.

Developers will also be able to submit their Progressive Web Apps to the Store.

These apps will run in a sandboxed AppX container in Windows 10 and won't carry any browser window.

For a list of known issues and the full fix list, check out Microsoft's blog post about 17093. Make sure it uses the discrete GPU.

The support for PWAs within Windows 10 is being made possible by Microsoft adding support for newer web technologies to the OS' forthcoming EdgeHTML 17 engine.

Microsoft says it is already experimenting with crawling and indexing PWAs from the web to pick out the quality offerings, which it will draft into the Microsoft Store. The proprietary tool mainly helps to generate a manifest file, build a Service Worker, and then directly publish a PWA in the Microsoft Store. The engineering team at Microsoft has apparently been using the Bing Crawler to identify PWAs on the Web for almost a year. The tech giant is testing the ability to unlock the security-focused Windows flavor through an Authenticator App you can install on your phone.
