With almost the entire fleet of operating systems currently offered in the landscape of technology engrossed in the development of outperforming its rivals, Microsoft has let out some glimpse of what it's gearing up for: bringing the next-level, insightful weather forecast tray of Windows 11 to its below-tier OS update, Windows 10.  

As per the company, a new Windows 10 user interface is being rolled out to some select Windows 10 users. The latest revamped version of Windows 10 is bringing along the dynamic and interactive weather update experience that was hitherto exclusive to Windows 11.

From the lockscreen interface, when the area designated for weather updates is hovered over, it will display detailed information regarding the weather for the day.

Moreover, when the user is signed in, Microsoft Edge will open with the full forecast in MSN Weather. The experience will be on by default unless your Lock Screen status is set to “None.”

Windows Central states that Windows 10 has around 1 billion active users compared to the 400 million users of Windows 11, substantiating the anticipation of the new feature being backported to Windows 10.

Besides weather updates, the latest update patch, numbered 19045.3992, of Windows 10 also has a feature for eye control system settings, enabling users to back up settings from a former device, in case they're setting up a new device, and then automatically install them on their new device. The upgrading build also includes a number of bug fixes.

Earlier in November, Microsoft claimed it finished updating Windows 10. However, now it plans to add its Copilot AI to Windows 10 as well. The support for regular Windows 10 is supposed to end on October 14, 2025. But if you want extra support after that, you might need to pay for it.
