Microsoft's latest Windows 10 update is hurting game performance

Microsoft confirms that Windows 10 KB4482887 update can degrade graphics & mouse performance in certain games

Windows 10 is now on 800 million devices – should hit a billion in 2020

It recently announced that Windows 10 now runs on a whopping 800 million devices.

"With record customer engagement and satisfaction and more than 350M monthly active users, Windows 10 is off to the hottest start in history". We could see Windows 10 receive a big boost from gamers this year though, as the Halo Master Chief Collection and Gears of War 5 are both set to launch this year.

And hitting a billion devices is one of the major goals for Microsoft.

Microsoft has strong plans to release Windows 10 1903 to the Windows users after making all the necessary changes.

Microsoft had originally expected to attain the goal of having Windows 10 installed on 1 billion devices globally in three years after its release, but it missed the target last year.

Net Applications' measurements include only personal computers; Microsoft's count also covers Xbox consoles, tablets and what few Windows-powered smartphones remain running.

As DSOGaming reports, on March 1 Microsoft released Windows 10 update KB4482887, which is classed as a "quality improvements" update. The announcement comes only six months after the USA technology major reached the 700 million milestone.

If you use your Windows 10 PC or laptop for gaming, then depending on the games you play the performance of the graphics and the mouse may have degraded somewhat this week. Using the 12-month average change in user share, Computerworld recently forecast that almost 41% of all Windows PCs will be running Windows 7 at the moment it falls off Microsoft's support list.

However, there's a good chance Windows 7 would just become the new Windows XP, and many customers might just continue running it even after the end of support is reached.
