In addition, the Windows Update display now offers detailed information about the status of individual updates, so you don't have to wonder whether anything's happening in the background.

Remote Desktop settings, which were scattered in several locations in earlier versions, now get a single home: Settings System Remote Desktop. Microsoft turns Windows 10 Fall Creators Update focus to'stabilization' as of Build 16273
