Windows 10 Creators Upgrade with Microsoft SCCM

The Windows 10 Creators Update includes new innovations, features, and security capabilities. It is an exciting release, but upgrading all your workstations can be a challenge. Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) can help to control and automate the upgrade process called Windows 10 Servicing.

What’s new with Windows 10 Creators Update

  • Microsoft Edge Improvements – now faster than Chrome with better battery life, new tab management, and additional extensions
  • Security – Dynamic Lock is a feature that works with smartphones, fitness bands, or any device that’s paired to your PC or tablet which detects when you step away from your PC or tablet, automatically locking it for an extra security and privacy.
  • New Privacy Settings – the new privacy settings screens includes an explanation of what happens when you turn privacy settings on or off
  • UEFI Conversion – MBR2GPT is a new tool which lets you convert an MBR disk to a GPT disk. With the Creators update we can now convert an existing MBR disk to a GPT disk without deleting it.
  • Night Light – a feature that restricts blue light emanating from your display by changing its hue. Why restrict blue light? Excessive blue light can disrupt your natural sleep pattern
