If you're running Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system, you need to know about a major update that will affect the way you use your computer and the internet. There's a good chance you already have Windows 10.

It's been downloaded to about 400 million PCs and laptops. Microsoft first introduced it almost two years ago. Many users have embraced it for being faster and more secure than previous versions of Windows, and some competing operating systems.

In less than two weeks, Microsoft will start to roll out a major update called Creators Update. That name reflects some of its most notable features. That includes a 3D version of the Paint program you've probably been using for years to crop photos and draw images.

Some new features for Microsoft's virtual reality platform, Windows Mixed Reality (formerly Microsoft Holographic), have been pushed back to later this year.

But for most of us, the Creators Update will affect the way we use computers every day. Note: If you have Windows 10, the Creators Update is free.

One of its new features is for gamers. With the Creators Update, you'll be able to use a Windows 10 mode specifically for gaming. It's designed to maximize frame rates and other features for smoother gameplay.
