It feels like forever since we first mentioned that the Windows 10 Anniversary Update was on its way - but it's finally here!

If you've missed our previous coverage, here's a quick recap of the new user-friendly features you're going to love. The update features a number of upgrades to Microsoft's PC software, including selfie login for websites and apps, and an unlocked Cortana.

1. Microsoft Edge

To get more people using its new web browser, Microsoft is also opening support for extensions and improving the tabs. Add-ons already available include LastPass, 1Password and EverNote, and Microsoft is reportedly working on a tool that can convert Chrome extensions to Edge ones.

The update also means Edge syncs with the cloud, works with Cortana and with Hello. Minor new features in the Edge browser, which Microsoft claims is 70 percent more battery efficient than competitors, make it more intuitive, including right-clicking the back button to see the history of pages visited on it and "paste and go" or "paste and search" for copied text. It also has an option to clear all browsing data every time you close Edge.

The Edge browser also includes a number of handy features like Read Mode and Web Note, allowing users to read and interact with web pages in the way they want.
