Windows 10 is such a popular operating system that it's been downloaded over 300 million times since it launched in 2015. It's fast, safe and offers browser extensions that Windows users have been requesting for a long time.

Microsoft offered Windows 10 as a free upgrade until July 29, 2016, and started rolling out the massive Anniversary Update on August 2. Now, speculation has begun on what changes are coming in its next big update.

This year's Anniversary Update was focused primarily on security improvements and reliability. However, there were also updates to Cortana, the Taskbar menu and Windows Ink that provide a better experience.

There were also some problems that occurred after the launch of the Anniversary Update. After installing the update, several users noticed that their computers would crash shortly after startup, and there were also issues with the webcam.

Back in August, Microsoft announced there would be no more updates issued for Windows 10 for quite some time unless a security patch was needed. That's what makes the latest rumors so exciting.

Now we know that the next big Windows 10 update is expected to be out in early 2017 and has the codename 'Redstone 2.' This will be the follow-up to the Anniversary Update, which was known as 'Redstone 1.'
