Microsoft is making it easier than ever to automate testing in
Microsoft Edge using WebDriver. Microsoft explains that the
WebDriver is now a Feature on Demand in Windows, it will be
kept up-to-date to automatically match the build/branch/etc.
Previously, it was necessary to manually update WebDriver
separately from Windows.
You need to turn on Developer Mode or you can also install it
from “optional features” Settings page.
Microsoft is also making improvements to the Game Bar. You can
now change your default audio output device, see your game’s
CPU usage, GPU VRAM usage, and more.
And last but not the least, Microsoft also added
an ability to increase text size across the system to the
Settings app. You’ll find a new option called “Make everything
bigger” in Settings > Ease of Access > Display.
“This slider will adjust text across the system, win32 apps,
and UWP apps,” the company explains.
Microsoft announced that the company is working on a new
feature for Edge that will allow you to control whether media
can play automatically. The feature will give you more control
over autoplay videos. Kyle Pflug from Microsoft Edge team
explains that the feature will be added to Edge soon, and
you’ll find it under Advanced Settings.
The aforementioned features will be shipped to the general
public with Windows 10 Redstone 5 update, scheduled to arrive
