Windows 10’s own browser has suffered in the past few years, not least from its unfortunate association with Microsoft’s awful Internet Explorer.
However the new Microsoft Edge is faster and more secure than ever before, the company says, apparently trouncing rivals such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
The browser now comes with a new tab preview bar which gives you a quick glance on every tab you have open, without leaving your current page.
These can then be scrolled through using your mouse wheel, touchpad, or your finger.

Microsoft Edge can now display previews of all your tabs in one go
Microsoft Edge has also been given an overhaul in how it stores your favourites and bookmarks.
Users are no longer limited to a long list or a bar in their browser, as Edge now lets you manage your favourite sites easily.
The new ‘set your tabs aside’ feature allows you to sweep away whatever pass you currently have open, and then quickly restore them later.
These can also now be previewed in thumbnail form thanks to ‘tabs you’ve set aside’, where you can restore a collection of closed tabs, or just the one.
Microsoft’s voice-activated assistant has grown to become one of the key apps in Windows 10, and Cortana gets a number of new features in Creators Update.
The tool now offers a new full-screen experience that can be used when your PC has been left idle – so if you’ve left your desk to go check something, you can still quickly consult your PC by saying “Hey Cortana”.
If you have more than one Windows 10 device, Cortana can help you pick up where you left off, displaying quick links in the Action Centre to get you back up to speed.
This includes links to websites you most recently visited using Microsoft edge, or documents you created via Sharepoint, meaning there’s no need to scrabble around for the last items you used.
Cortana can now help you work across multiple Windows 10 devices
We all love our smart devices, but it’s no secret that staring into a screen all day is not good for your health.
Windows 10 Creators Update aims to improve this however with a new mode that it says cuts down on the harmful light radiation coming from your device.
The Night light setting reduces the amount of blue light emitted by your device, making it less stressful on your eyes, especially when viewing in low light conditions.
To turn it on, simply head to Settings > System > Display.

Biometric security is becoming an increasingly popular way to secure devices these days, with manufacturers expanding from traditional fingerprint scans to include eye and facial scanning.
Microsoft helped popularise the latter system with its Windows Hello tool, which allows users to unlock their device with a face scan.
Now, the service has been given a major expansion with the new Dynamic Lock feature, which links to your smartphone to secure your device when you’re away from the PC.
You can use any paired iPhone, Android, or Windows Phone to detect when you step away from your PC or tablet, which will be automatically locked – and then unlocked when you come back again.
