The list includes Groove Music Maker, support of the digital pen in Word documents, a new Edge Tab browser, a refreshed design for the Action Center, a new personalisation tab in the app store and a lot more.

Windows 10 Creators Update Features

Groove Music Maker

A new music creation tool has been added named as Groove Music Maker that allows a user to access to basic tools for editing sound files. This app will be free and therefore, high-level editing with professional touch should not be expected.

Now this feature is something that might take us to the conventional times but, with a modern touch. Microsoft Word is now supported by a digital pen and as seen in the video, if a user cuts a line, it gets deleted from the document.

Action Center

The large block design has been now skipped and logos are placed instead. Audio and brightness setting have also been changed with the introduction of slider post-update, which has taken the place of pre-adjustment. With this, the Action Center will have a completely refreshed design.

Tab Browser For Edge

Through new Tab Browser, a user will be able to see a brief preview of the tabs that are open. A new feature called Session Manager has been also added which gives more control while restoring the old tabs.
