    Windows 10 21H2 comes with new controls for human presence feature


    A few years ago, Microsoft added APIs for a feature called “Human presence”, which is currently used by companies like Lenovo and Dell on their flagship laptops. As the name suggests, Human presence allows the operating system and hardware to detect user presence, and enhance security while maintaining ease of use.

    With Windows 10 Sun Valley update, Microsoft is introducing native controls for Human Presence. Currently, you can only manage this feature using the app bundled by OEM, but this will change with the Sun Valley update, which will include Group Policy and Settings to manage Human Presence.

    As shown in the screenshot below, Microsoft is working on three new settings for Windows 10 – Force instant lock, Force instant wake and Lock timeout.

    When the first option “Force instant lock” is enabled, Windows will automatically lock your computer when you’re away from the screen. If you have the supported camera sensors, Windows 10 can sense when you’re sitting or standing in front of it, and detect when you walk away from the computer.

    The automatic lock is triggered when you’re away from the computer for the specified timeout, such as 2 minutes, 30 seconds and 10 seconds. It can also detect distance – 1.2 meters, 2.5 feet, 0.6 meters or 1 foot – and lack your device automatically.

    The second feature “instant wake” will enable touch-free logins when you sit down at your laptop.

    As mentioned at the outset, human presence is not a new technology and settings are already offered with OEM software. With the Sun Valley update, Microsoft is bringing these options to the built-in Settings app and Group Policy editor, but the end effect remains the same.

    In addition to these new features, Microsoft is also testing improvements for the taskbar and Action Center in the preview builds. The big user interface changes are currently expected to show up in June/July when the Sun Valley update will be finalized.

    New features and improvements coming to Windows 10

    You've gotta be kiddin' me. There must be some way to disable this "Get the App" notification or else I'm staying away from Windows 10 for good. Total nonsense. This feature won't be available to Enterprise users, will it?

    Five good reasons for me to stick with W7

    "For discovery and engagement, Microsoft will add a "Suggested" list, which will deliver smart suggestions of apps from the Windows Store if after a while you haven't installed any apps. You can also notice that the app tile also provides star rating and pricing information for a particular app."

    "As the system learns your behavior using and installing apps, the Suggested list will become the "Recently added" list of apps. And when the users use the app enough, the apps will then get listed in the "Most used" list."


    "Microsoft's Belfiore also noted that with these new tweaks, the Start menu is pretty much a final product. As such, we don't expect any more significant changes beyond what we see today."


    "Cortana will also feature app discoverability from the Windows Store as users use search."


    "Future updates of Microsoft Edge will include a new "New Tab" window with the most recent links users have visited in the form of tiles. If the site they visited has an app available in the Windows Store, you will see "Get the app" notification in the link tile as well."

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
