Not all cameras work with Windows' Eye Control, however, and Tobii's own Eye Tracker 4C will be the first one to support the new feature.

Microsoft has announced it will add the ability to control Windows with your eyes to an upcoming mainstream version of the OS, and a Windows Insider build containing the capability is already available. The next Creators Update coming this fall may bring some or all of the changes found in this Insider Preview build.

A spokesperson said Microsoft had "no more to share". This is an eye tracking technology that is aimed at making life a lot easier for persons with disabilities using Windows 10.

Windows 10 is a service, meaning it was built in a very different way from its predecessors so it can be regularly updated with not just fixes, but new features, too.

Eye Control displays a launchpad on the screen that you can interact with.

Eye Control supports text to speech on top of that for communication purposes. The first result was an application that allowed Gleason to control his motorized wheelchair using an eye-tracking device in conjunction with a Microsoft Surface tablet. The company has stated that specialized hardware will be required, and adds that Eye Control will work with majority of tracking solutions, which also includes the Tobii 4C. Check out the blog post on the Windows Command Line Tools for Developers blog for more information on the change.

The Windows 10 Insider Preview was introduced as a service, setting it aside from its predecessors in terms of built. It now supports 24-bit RGB color while there is also an improvement in the legibility of darker color on the modern screens. Microsoft has also the adjusted the design of the address bar and there are several other fixes.

The issue where the Japanese IME prediction candidates shifted position and overlapped with the text on the screen when the page zoom level is set to anything other than 100 percent, has been fixed too.

Here is what I have labelled as the "Halo" effect when launching items in Windows Settings. WDAG has also received performance upgrades, specific to container launch times.

Q. With all the concern about Microsoft Paint going away in the next Windows 10 update, I nearly missed that there's yet another update to Windows 10 coming out this year.
