Microsoft appears to be in a fit and finish mode with a frenzy of app updates and OS upgrades being released to users within the last few days. Over the past week, Windows users on both the public release of Windows 10 and Insider programs have seen updates to apps such as the Outlook Calendar and Mail, Movies & TV, and Photos.
