New York [USA], Dec 20 (ANI): Technology giant Microsoft has started testing its much-awaited Windows 10's 'Timeline' feature and is expected to roll out an update to testers, later in the day.

According to The Verge, the software giant is expected to launch Windows 10 build 17063 to Fast Ring testers, which will be complete with the 'Timeline' feature and the new window tabs, that the company revealed earlier last month.

'Timeline' will let one effectively pick up where they left off if one is switching between Windows 10 devices. It is a quick way to move from one machine to another, much like Apple's continuity feature in iOS and macOS.

The update will also extend to some Microsoft apps on iOS and Android eventually, owing to Microsoft's virtual assistant, Cortana.

In the present, 'Timeline' can be accessed through the usual Task View area in Windows 10.

Moreover, Microsoft is also testing out 'Sets', its tabbed window feature.

'Sets' add tabs to windows so that activities can be grouped into a single interface.

This latest Windows 10 test build also includes more DPI improvements.

The company has for some years now been battling to fix DPI scaling issues in Windows, and the tech giant is now finally introducing a new setting in the display area to let Windows automatically fix scaling for apps. (ANI)
