Windows 10 build 1903 has a new 'make Windows even better' setup prompt

17 January 2019 1

Microsoft is appearing to be testing a new prompt for the initial Windows 10 setup process. This new prompt is aimed at making "Windows 10 even better" for users. It basically makes users aware of different Microsoft services that can be customized and used for better user experience.

It is reported that the new prompt is visible on Windows 10 build 1903 but only to a few users. It shows that Microsoft is currently testing the change with no surety if it will be released for masses. It is said to be visible only during the first run after a successful Windows 10 installation which is standard for such prompts. The prompt reads "Let's make Windows even better - this shouldn't affect what you've already set up". This suggests that it is something of a step additional to the usual setup process but thankfully, it is an optional one. It means if you are not interested, it can be skipped with just one click.

Here are the Microsoft services that it is aimed at encouraging users to make use of:

  • Set up Windows Hello -- Sign in faster and more securely
  • Link your phone and PC -- Help your devices work in harmony
  • So more across devices -- Enjoy more seamless experiences
  • Get Office 365 ready -- Have your apps ready for launch
  • Protect your files with OneDrive -- Keep them backed up and accessible
As you can see, all of these services require the user to sign-in using their Microsoft accounts. It seems like with the projected idea of improving user experience, Microsoft is hoping to get more users to use its services. There is no doubt that such a deeper integration will surely be beneficial for users who work in a Microsoft ecosystem but for those who don't, it is something to think about. But as we said in the beginning, it is an optional step which can skippable with ease.

Lots of files and presentations I need to use - Office. And need to access them from anywhere - OneDrive. These are what I used most. Hope to get something better!
