  1. In early April, Microsoft launched the Windows 10 Creators Update for desktop PCs. The mobile version was delayed while Microsoft continued development to refine some features. Today, the company launched the RTM build for select devices. On the Microsoft Community forums, an article was published detailing instructions how to upgrade and which devices are supported.



    The Creators Update for Windows 10 Mobile includes additional features and improvements for your Windows 10 phone, and is now available!

    Note: Availability may vary by manufacturer, model, country or region, mobile operator or service provider, hardware limitations, and other factors.

    Windows 10 Mobile will automatically download and install the update as it is rolled out to eligible phones.  To manually check for the update, from Start, swipe over to the All apps list, then select Settings > Update & security > Phone update > Check for updates.

    These are the Windows 10 Mobile devices officially eligible for receiving the Windows 10 Creators Update:

    • HP Elite x3
    • Microsoft Lumia 550
    • Microsoft Lumia 640/640XL

    Devices not on this list will not officially receive the Windows 10 Creators Update. However, phones on earlier versions of Windows 10 Mobile (1511, 1607) will continue to receive monthly cumulative updates, such as security releases, per Microsoft's Lifecycle policy.

  2. Paul, one of our new readers on groovyPost asked a great question.


    I am new to Groovy Post but love the articles. I have a question with Microsoft Edge, how can I sort the favorites as I used to be able to with Microsoft Explorer? I.E the folders were at the top in alphabetical order then all of the other favorites listed separately were also sorted alphabetically.


    Here's a quick tip on how to adjust the Favorites Bar / Favorites on Microsoft Edge.

    <See screenshot below as walking through steps>

    Step 1 - Click 3 Bars at top Right of Edge Browser

    Step 2 - Click STAR Favorites Icon

    Step 3 - Navigate to Favorites you want to Sort

    Step 4 - Click-and-Drag links to sort them.
