when you search for "show recent sales forecasts ", for example, Cortana present search results related to input keywords (such as a list of Excel tables/ PowerPoint presentations).

Cortana on Windows 10 is also supported by a feature previously available in Microsoft Outlook, such as allowing users to query specific jobs, instructions, and quickly schedule e-mail via a digital assistant.


Second is the Web application in the Microsoft Store: Microsoft today confirms that WebView2 on the Windows 10 will be supported by Chromium -based Microsoft Edge.

For web app developers, this means they can take advantage of the chromium rendering engine. It is believed that in the near future, web apps will usher in WebView 2 support based on Windows App Store (such as twitter or Uber), with better performance, novel features and endless new opportunities.

With regard to incremental Web applications (PWA), Microsoft pointed out at the Ignite 2020 conference that it had contributed more than 3,700 separate code submissions for Chromium projects.

According to chromium Gerrit, Microsoft has made considerable contributions in the areas of core functions, basic knowledge, accessibility, and developer tools.


Lastly, there are new improvements to Windows Linux subsystems (WSL) and end applications: for advanced users and developers, Microsoft has announced WSL major improvements to Linux and Windows Terminal.

As part of the update, it indicates that wsl2 support will be enabled in Windows 10 1903 and above.

In addition, the "windows install" and the "windows install" channel are currently being tested for these new features.

As for the Windows terminal, it will allow users to access command-line tools in one place, and the next update will bring support for hyperlinks, jump lists, and new command panels.
