Microsoft may offer some Windows 10 patch notes to enterprises

IT administrators may get more information than originally planned about Windows 10 patches, as Microsoft ponders how much to tell business customers about modifications to the new OS.

"We've heard that feedback from enterprise customers so we're actively working on how we provide them with information about what's changing and what new capabilities and new value they're getting," Jim Alkove, a vice president in the Windows group, said during a press briefing. 

It's a change in tone for the company, which previously said that it wouldn't provide detailed information about most Windows 10 patches. That original plan was bad news for IT managers and users who want to know what an update does before they install it. This is more of an issue now that Microsoft is supposed to release more frequent updates over the lifetime of Windows 10, as part of its "Windows as a service" plans, than it did for previous editions of Windows.

Windows 10 Home patch lets you turn off automatic app updates

As originally released, the option to disable automatic app updates in Windows 10 Home was, for whatever reason, grayed out. But as of the newly released Windows 10 Cumulative Update 5, WInSuperSite notes, you can now toggle this setting and install updates manually.

Cumulative Update 5 (KB3081448) is one of three updates Microsoft released on Thursday: The other two address specific issues involving Windows 10?s ?out-of-box experience? and  the Windows 10 upgrading process.

Homefront: The Revolution hands-on: The revolution might be sanitized

It?s been over a year since I?ve seen Homefront: The Revolution, and the game?s been through hell since then.

Last year this was a Crytek game. Then Crytek, who bought the rights from a bankrupt THQ a few years back, started having similar money issues and after losing some key creatives, Deep Silver basically bought out both the Homefront rights and the entirety of Crytek?s UK studio. And now here we are.

All for a sequel to a game that?s legendarily mediocre. The video game industry is strange.

How to make the cursor or mouse pointer bigger

Eston Burciaga asked if ?there?s a way to drastically increase the size of the standard Windows pointer??

If you move your mouse, and can?t find the pointer, it?s time to change the way that the pointer looks and behaves. You can make that adjustment through Control Panel?s Mouse tool. The easiest way to get to that tool varies depending on your version of Windows.

[Have a tech question? Ask PCWorld Contributing Editor Lincoln Spector. Send your query to answer@pcworld.com.]

Windows 7: Click Start, type mouse and select Mouse in the Control Panel section.

Teen jailed for supporting ISIS on Twitter

A 17-year-old Virginia resident has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison by a U.S. federal court after he used Twitter to provide financial and recruiting support to the extremist Islamic group known as ISIS.

The sentence handed down Friday shows how wide a net officials have cast in prosecuting online activities related to ISIS, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

While this case focused on the defendant's use of Twitter, he also used messaging apps like WhatsApp and Tox for ISIS-related communications, one of his attorneys said in an interview.

The defendant, Ali Shukri Amin, also provided instructions on how to use Bitcoin to contribute funds to ISIS.

Razer's tournament-grade Wildcat wants to replace your Xbox One controller

I don?t know who buys third-party controllers nowadays?I feel like the Xbox 360 controller is still the gold standard for PCs, with the Xbox One and DualShock 4 following close behind. But if you are in the market, Razer?s just unveiled a new ?pro-gamer validated, tournament-grade? gamepad, the Razer Wildcat.

In a lot of ways the Wildcat is similar to the modular Xbox One Elite controller that Microsoft unveiled at E3. Like the Elite, the Wildcat adds four buttons to the standard Xbox One layout.

The main difference is placement?the Elite throws all four paddle switches on the back of the controller, while the Wildcat has two on top next to the LB and RB buttons and two (I swear this came from the press release) ?removable aircraft-grade aluminum triggers? on the back. Aircraft-grade. In case the world ends and you?re forced to melt down your Wildcat and use the scrap metal to build a Mad Max-esque gyrocopter.
