Microsoft who now hold vast amounts of personal data from consumers who have installed Windows 10 is now moving to upgrade the Microsoft OS in an effort to increase boot times.

There's also boosts for Cortana, allowing those devices with styluses and pens to write a note in Cortana Notebook and have email addresses, phone numbers and physical addresses recognised. 

Cortana will then help turn the text into reminders if necessary.

What's not known is just how much personal data Microsoft is actually capturing. 

The November update is available to all PC and tablet owners already running Windows 10.

For all those who have not upgraded Microsoft is claiming a boot time now 30 per cent faster than Windows 7 as an inducement to upgrade to their new free at this stage Windows 10 OS. 

You'll also be able to use Cortana to book Uber cabs and keep track of event/movie bookings made through various portals.

Microsoft has also moved to upgrade their Edge browser in an effort to get consumers to actually use the browser. Most Windows users now use either Firefox or Chrome as their browser of choice. 

Microsoft has also delivered an improved  tab preview mode, which allows users to hover over open tabs and see what's lurking without having to leave the current page. 

Microsoft says there's also little improvements for the Mail, Calendar, Photos, Groove, Xbox, Store, OneNote and Solitaire among others.

In a post on the Windows blog, Terry Myerson said Windows 10 had now reached "the point in the platform's maturity where we can confidently recommend deployment to whole organisations."

The November update comes on the same day Microsoft began rolling the Windows 10 update out to Xbox One owners, bringing a brand new, re-imagined dashboard and the long-awaited Xbox 360 backwards compatibility.
