Timeline helps users find the important files they need, whether they are on the hard drive of their PC, in email accounts, file archives, or other device's storage.
With Timeline in Windows 10, users can "go back in time" to find the files they want, whether they have accessed that day or one or more weeks ago. Timeline allows users to even resume projects started in Microsoft Edge or Office 365 on your iOS or Android device when you come back to a computer running Windows 10. For example, if the user is searching for a product in an online store on your phone, finalizes the purchase when he returns to his computer or working on a document on a mobile device started on the way to the office, can be resumed without problems when the user reaches the office in front of the computer.

Focus Assist function
Thought to help users keep focus, Focus Assist can be activated whenever the user wants to perform tasks without being distracted by social media, for example, or other notifications. This function can be programmed to start automatically at certain times during the day when the user wants to work quietly. Finally, the user receives a summary of what's up-to-date news, notifications, emails, or updates. Also, Focus Assist can be configured to give priority and not block emails or calls from specific people
New capabilities for Microsoft Edge
Microsoft Edge helps users to focus better when they browse the internet. If there is an open audio or video file in one of the browser's tabs, it displays an audio icon that with the new Microsoft Edge capabilities can be accessed to turn off and turn on the sound from that tab. Books, PDFs and Reading View pages can be displayed in full screen for a read-away reading experience
Online shopping is made easier because the address, payment method and other information can be saved in the browser with the option to automatically fill in online payment forms. The user can print their web pages in a cleaner format using the clutter-free print option. Grammar Tools can separate words from the page in syllables and highlight different parts of speech, such as nouns, verbs, and adjectives.
Voice function for natural data input
The Dictation feature makes it easy for users to make notes or write a work using just the voice. By placing the cursor in any text field in Windows 10 or an application, the user must press the Win + H keys and simply start talking. The Dictation function in Windows 10 will capture the words of the user so that spontaneous ideas or speeches can be transposed in writing
