Microsoft releases Windows Defender Application Guard extensions for Chrome and Firefox

The way it works is the same way it does in Edge, but checking the URL you navigate to against a list of trusted websites. If it's found that you're navigating to an untrusted site, it will open in a sandboxed Microsoft Edge browser. From there, you can navigate to any website, whether it's trusted or not, as it won't be able to harm your system.

Microsoft is removing the Books category from the Microsoft Store as of today, April 2. This means users will no longer be able to buy, rent or pre-order books via the Store beginning now.

Previously purchased books and rentals will be accessible until early July, but after this, books will no longer be accessible, officials said in a customer-support article today. The company is promising full refunds for all content purchased from the Books category

How Microsoft learned from the past to redesign its future
A new open design challenge for a 44-year-old company

One room at Microsoft’s headquarters represents everything that’s changed about its design philosophy. Inside, there are four rows of tables. In the first row is everything the company makes that’s already in stores. In the second is the next-generation of products, and in the third and fourth are the really conceptual things that Microsoft wants to try to make in the future. “If you spend enough time in this room, you see the gaps, certain light bulbs go off,” says Ralf Groene, head of Microsoft’s hardware design.
