Last week was crazy busy in Orlando, Florida as Microsoft hosted 30,000 IT Professionals, managers, and executives for their massive annual tech conference – Microsoft Ignite.

Of course, we will talk about some of those key items and we catch up on the latest from the Windows Insider Program as the October 2018 update release approaches. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

This week I share some insight about how straight forward an Xbox One console reset is when you need to get back to basics and then discuss the fact that Microsoft is not starting a new monthly charge for all Windows users despite some stories which want you to think otherwise. It has also been a busy week for Windows Insiders with multiple build releases across all branches plus I share my thoughts about where we stand when it comes to the end of Redstone 5’s development cycle and release. I also share details about Microsoft’s planned deprecation of the Disk Cleanup Utility in Windows 10 and a fresh rumor about the October Microsoft hardware event in NYC. Of course there are tidbits throughout the show including news about Xbox, updated apps in Windows 10 and on the web, Chromebooks with Windows network connectivity and Microsoft’s servicing criteria for Windows. Make sure you listen from start to finish so you catch all the items we cover this week. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
