One of the noticeable differences is a new colored title bar for desktop apps. All apps now feel a little more similar to the ones designed specifically for Windows 10, and Microsoft has also improved the context menus throughout the OS to make them a little bigger and darker to match the general theme. Another big change is the introduction of Skype integration with dedicated Messaging and Skype Video apps. They're both available from the Windows Store, and they're designed to offer basic access to messaging, audio, and video calls without having to download the full version of Skype.
Most other changes are fairly minor, including improved system icons. Microsoft is allowing Windows 10 users to now install apps to external storage, and some tablet mode improvements allow you to swipe down to close apps and snap apps more easily. Microsoft is also improving its Edge browser and Cortana in the Windows 10 Fall Update. Edge now syncs favorites, settings, and the reading list, alongside a new tab preview feature. Cortana will now work without a Microsoft Account, and the digital assistant can now understand inked notes in the Windows 10 Fall Update. The update is rolling out today from Windows Update.
