This is exciting. If you're one of the nearly half-billion people who use this computer operating system, you'll be thrilled to hear how it now works with your smartphone.

You'll soon be able to share a link from your phone to your PC. If you're browsing a website on your phone and you want to continue reading it on your laptop, you can simply click a link to share it.

This is one of several improvements Microsoft is making to its Windows 10 operating system. We've told you that Windows 10, unlike previous versions, is not a one-and-done OS. Instead, it's a continually improving operating system.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is the next major upgrade since Windows 10 was first released in 2015. This is version 16251 of Windows 10.

Yesterday, Microsoft released an Insider Preview of the Fall Creators Update. It will be widely released this fall.

This new version has several new features and fixes for old problems. But these three features are among the most exciting.

1. Link your laptop to your Android smartphone

Microsoft's Windows 10 is an operating system for laptops and PCs. Windows has never been a great OS for smartphones. Microsoft has openly acknowledged that it needs to do a better job of working on your smartphone.

This new feature, called Cross-Device Web Browsing, is a step in the right direction. To share a link from your Android device to your Windows 10 laptop or PC: From your computer, go to Settings >> Phone and link your phone >> from your Android phone, open the text message link called Microsoft Apps.
