To ensure devices in enterprise environments are running the most current and secure version of Windows with the latest security updates, any device on Windows 10 Enterprise edition or Windows 10 Pro edition that is configured to receive updates automatically from Windows Update will be automatically offered Windows 10, version 1709 after January 18, 2018.

The most likely explanation for the new emphasis is that Microsoft is pushing customers to pick up the upgrade pace because enterprises have been so slow that the company has been forced to extend support timelines beyond their stated 18-month spans. The update comes along with the Windows 10 build 17074 on the Fast ring. Another improvement that the company brings to our notice is blocking and saving passwords for each site. As an IT administrator, you decide when to broadly deploy once you have validated the apps, devices, and infrastructure in your organization work well with this release.

On supported books, you can now hear the book read aloud with custom narration, with the publisher's chosen style applied to the highlight as the book is read. You can also update your device or personalize your settings including your active hours, restart options and other advanced options in the Windows Update settings menu.

Option to never save passwords for domains: Microsoft based on the user feedback has introduced a new never save passwords option for certain sites. When you choose to never save passwords, you shall never be prompted with a save password notification for that site.

The announcement came slightly short of three months after the Oct. 17, 2017, debut of Fall Creators Update, better known to corporate customers as 1709 in Microsoft's yymm nomenclature.
