Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 19H1 test build to Insider testers. Today’s build, 18252, is the first 19H1 test build to go to both Skip Ahead and Fast Ring testers simultaneously. Now that the Windows 10 October 2018 Update (Redstone 5) is done and rolling out to the mainstream, Microsoft is moving its Insiders on to the next feature release.
Build 18252 includes the ability to use the Settings app to configure advanced Ethernet IP settings. There’s support now for configuring a static IP address, as well as setting up a preferred DNS server. (These settings used to be in the Control Panel; now they’re on the connection properties page under IP settings, Microsoft officials said.)
There’s a new icon for disconnected from the Internet as of this build, which replaces the individual disconnected icons for Cellular, Wi-Fi and Ethernet.
Today’s test build includes a bunch of other changes, improvements and fixes in everything from the Task Manager to Windows Hello. See Microsoft’s blog post for the full list. The October 3 blog post about the build also includes a number of known issues.
Microsoft still has yet to release any major new features as part of its 19H1 test cycle, but it’s still early days. Microsoft is expected to roll out 19H1 to the mainstream starting around April 2019.
Today’s blog post includes a couple of other tidbits. Microsoft has added support for Insider test rings to System Center Configuration Manager. And it is now releasing its Insider test documentation as open source so that Insider testers can help create and modify that documentation.
Can You Use An Xbox Controller On Nintendo Switch?
It’s worth noting that some of the Xbox controller’s functions do not work on Switch, nor are many of the Switch’s unique features supported by the controller. Specifically, it lacks support for rumble, NFC, analog triggers, trigger vibration, the audio jack, IR input, and the LED doesn’t correlate to any Switch functions, including player indicators. You also can’t wake the Switch up from sleep using the controller.
You’ll also want to keep in mind that Xbox controllers swap the positions of several face buttons in relation to Switch controllers, so the labels won’t match up perfectly. For instance, the positioning of the “A” and “B” buttons on the Xbox controller correspond to “B” and “A” on the Switch controller, respectively. The same is true for the “X” and “Y” buttons. Otherwise, the Switch’s controller scheme perfectly matches the Xbox controller’s available buttons and triggers.
None of this is the fault of the 8Bitdo adapter. These limitations are simply the byproduct of marrying two devices that were not designed to work together. If that’s a dealbreaker, then your best bet is to buy an officially licensed Nintendo Switch controller. The best alternative for Xbox fans is Nintendo’s official Pro Controller.
The Incredible Capabilities Of The US Air Force’s New Supersonic Training Jet
According to the USAF, Boeing will produce over 350 Red Hawk aircraft as part of a contract worth more than $9.2 billion. There’s also speculation that the Red Hawk’s design could be easily modified to incorporate radar systems, electronic warfare equipment, or under-wing weapon stations, making it an attractive purchase for other U.S. military branches or even international allies.
The training jet features a glass touchscreen cockpit that provides a more modern flair — as well as a more practical piloting experience, one would hope — and tiered seating, so both the instructor and the trainee have sufficient ability to pilot the aircraft without visual obstructions.
Production models of the T-7A Red Hawk sport a red tail section, a reference to the red-painted tails of the aircraft flown during World War II by the 99th Fighter Squadron, better known as the “Tuskegee Airmen.” One of the planes they flew was the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk, which influenced the design of the T-7A Red Hawk.
In the same tradition of equality that the Red Hawk’s name and design aspire to embody, the training jet is built to safely accommodate a wider variety of pilot body types and sizes than previous jets, allowing for a larger recruiting pool including more women than has historically been the case. Let’s hope similar updates make their way to the USAF’s other next-gen aircraft.
How To Transfer Digital Games To A New Nintendo Switch
Let’s say you’ve just gotten ahold of a brand-new Nintendo Switch console, but this isn’t your first. Maybe it’s an upgrade to the fancy OLED model, perhaps you’ve been sharing with family, and this one is just for you. Whatever the reason, if you already have or have had a Switch, and now you have a new one, you don’t have to start building up an entirely new games library (or even start your games over).
Thankfully there are ways to transfer your digital games from one Switch to another, along with your user accounts and saves. While the process is a bit different depending on whether you have access to that original Switch console, it’s still doable either way. Just know that it might take a little more effort without the console where all of your info was previously saved. And you’ll likely lose any game progress that wasn’t backed up using Cloud saves.
If you still have the original Switch console
Assuming you do have both the previous Switch and the new one you want to transfer everything over to, here’s what you do:
- From the original Switch, open System Settings (the icon looks like a gear) on the Home menu.
- Select Users, then select Transfer Your User Data.
- Select Next twice, and then choose Source Console to mark this Switch as the transferrer.
- Select Continue, then grab the new Switch console to which you want to move everything.
- From the new Switch, open System Settings and select Users, then Transfer Your User Data.
- Select Next, Next again, then choose Target Console to designate this Switch as the transferee.
- Select Sign-in, then sign into your Nintendo Account using either the associated email or sign-in ID.
- Select Sign-in, then Next, then go back to the original Switch.
- Wait for the systems to find each other, then select Transfer.
- Wait until the transfer is complete (this may take several minutes), then select End to finish.
If you no longer have the original Switch console
Things are a little more time-consuming without access to the original Switch console on which your account was created or primarily used. Also, note that any saved data that hasn’t been backed up via Cloud storage will not be able to carry over.
- First, ensure the original Switch console has been deactivated (via Nintendo), which can be done remotely through your Nintendo Account via the official website.
- Next, if you haven’t done it yet, link your Nintendo Account (via Nintendo) to the new Switch console.
- Log into the eShop on the Switch using your Nintendo Account, which will designate it as the primary console.
- You can download cloud backups of your game saves — if you have a Switch Online subscription and have been using the feature.
- You can also access your account’s download history through the eShop and begin installing any of the digital games you’ve previously purchased. This will, of course, take longer when dealing with more or larger games and will require an adequate amount of storage space.
