Microsoft Edge lacked support for extensions when it came out about a year ago and the company recently opened up extensions for developers, which is why AdBlock and AdBlock Plus for Microsoft Edge are now available.

Let this serve as your first official warning from us here at htxt.africa that if by that date, you haven't taken Microsoft up on offer you will have to hand over a wad of cash we're sure you'd prefer used for things like fuel, or food.

Taking that average and dividing it into the number of active users still needed to reach 1 billion, that is 700 million as of last week, that means Microsoft still needs 815 days to reach 1 billion devices running Windows 10.

He says, "Today, we want to remind you that if you haven't taken advantage of the free upgrade offer, now is the time".

Microsoft had already announced that more than 300 million users are already running Windows 10 on their systems and mobile devices. The free overhaul offer will end on July 29 and we need to ensure you don't pass up a great opportunity.

With the new Update for Windows 10, Edge browser could actually become more functional for the ones that are using Chrome or Firefox.

"The ability to block access to the Windows Store is typically for organizations who want more control over corporate-owned devices", Microsoft said in a statement, adding Windows 10 Enterprise, which can be more costly, is aimed at those customers.

The adaption speed has been likely to ramped up by the Microsoft's move to make the Windows 10 available as the free upgrade through onwards from July 29.

If you are yet to avail the free upgrade to Windows 10 then you should hurry as the promotion will expire on July 29.

You can either upgrade or clean install Windows 10.

App updates are delivered through Windows Update.

In addition, some IT administrators were also blocking Windows Store for other reasons, including bandwidth consumption resulting from frequent updating of apps by employees.

Examples of assistive technologies in Windows 10 include Narrator, a screen-reader app that vocalizes text; Magnifier, a digital magnifying glass for those with poor vision; and Speech Recognition, which allows you to control your PC using your voice alone.
