Microsoft has started rolling out Windows 10 Anniversary Update on Tuesday, and by now, the majority of users should already have it installed on their computers. If you were a Windows Insider before installing the update, or you simply followed what’s going on at Microsoft, you probably know most of the features. However, if you’re not sure what’s new in the Anniversary Update, Microsoft got you covered.

The Anniversary Update includes a new app called ‘Get Started,’ which is installed automatically in Windows 10, along with the update. You probably already can tell by yourself what this app does, just judging by its name. And you’re right, the Get Started app for Windows 10 tells you everything you need to know about every new feature and improvement of Windows 10 version 1607. get started windows 10
