    As a keyboarder this works out great for me. WinKey/Tab saves me a lot of time selecting the files/programs/web pages I often use instead of navigating Start search, tiles, or tiles’ context menu. Open programs are listed in top portion as always with the usual Task View (Alt/Tab), then a Tab key gets me to the Timeline (lower portion) of items I opened and used in the past. Page Up/Down and Arrow keys work for homing in on an item, then Enter. Esc key rids of it.

    An app must have a high-quality activity cards for Timeline inclusion. Watch the video “Adaptive Cards for Timeline, Bots, and Beyond” here: Adaptive Cards for Timeline, Bots, and Beyond Channel 9

    More info here: Adaptive Cards

    Not a developer, but I see them as a sophisticated link.

    So far for me this works with all Office apps, Edge (pages), Paint, Photos, Maps, etc. Most MS apps for now since it’s a new feature I would guess. I don’t use the MSN News app. It’s fake news.

    Edit:

    I should mention that Edge and pages are not listed upon boot, which IMO should be included. Also, when I boot up my Acer with 17063 I get the Timeline on my Asus.

    Isn't 'timeline' just browser and synchronised (telemetry) history regurgitated and only worthwhile if 'sets' is available?

    Not sure what you mean. Timeline and Sets are completely different features. Timeline keeps a history of any app or file one uses across all devices to be seen and used on any different device. e.g. I open some apps and/or files on my tower and I need to finish up my session and leave, so I power off the tower PC. I then grab my laptop and head to a café. There I boot up my laptop and what I had open and used on my tower appears on my laptop desktop in the form of Timeline. Of course any app I used has to be installed on the laptop and any file I worked on has to be saved in the OneDrive folder.

    Sets is similar to a browser using tabs of different programs which can be closed out and is saved as seen here: Windows 'Sets' feature keeps tabs on side-by-side apps and websites | ZDNet

    @HippsieGypsieI can't see sets working without timeline. Timeline 'syncs' but you could do that anyway. So you start work on your Windows tablet (forget what it's called as it's so expensive) and leave the surfacexpensive at work. Never mind you have a Windows desktop at home with timeline. Hope you do as 'sets' can't work without the old fashioned synch, which is now called timeline. Hopefully timeline works with OneDrive that you have a subscription with that will get the info to 'sets' that will save your bacon.

    Either these new and 'exiting features', as Microsoft keeps calling them, are exiting for them (cash cows), or useful or somewhat necessary to the users.

    Of course I might have missed the point completely and that would be nothing new

    I had to completely do a clean install of the retail Windows 10 because this build was too problematic on my PC. I have never had problems before with any insider build but this build made my system to buggy to perform my daily tasks. Oh well, it is beta software.

    Looking at what you just wrote, yes, I think you have missed the point. Most of it anyway. I don’t know you at all, but perhaps you haven’t performed a lot of work on a PC or across multiple devices. Overall, this is not intended for the ones that boot up their devices to surf the net or play a game. This is meant more for enterprise and students. Those that do a lot of work and/or research with their devices.

    I can't see sets working without timeline.
    Timeline has nothing to do with Sets other than one may use Timeline on their device’s Desktops to open an app or file for a tab in Sets.

    Timeline 'syncs' but you could do that anyway.
    Perhaps you can show us how to perform that.

    So you start work on your Windows tablet (forget what it's called as it's so expensive) and leave the surfacexpensive at work. Never mind you have a Windows desktop at home with timeline.

Hopefully timeline works with OneDrive that you have a subscription with that will get the info to 'sets' that will save your bacon.
    “Sync” across all devices via one’s MSA has been around since 8/8.1. Of course Timeline and Sets need to sync to retrieve it on another device.

    Either these new and 'exiting features', as Microsoft keeps calling them, are exiting for them (cash cows), or useful or somewhat necessary to the users.
    Of course they’re “cash cows”. That’s what companies are in business for. To develop a product or service to sell for a profit. It may not be ‘exiting features' or useful to you, but others may find them to be.

    Thanks for the link. Forgot that Brink had that posted.

    From that article:

    Add tabs to apps: To help fuel Sets, most apps will be able to add app and web tabs. When you select a link in something like an e-mail, it’ll open in a new tab next to the app you were using.
    That pretty much explains the Sets feature. When one is finished with the session, close it out and it’s automatically saved and synced to one’s MSA ready to be opened on another device. Nothing really complicated about the process really.

    @HippsieGypsie Thanks for the reply. I haven't done a lot of work across multiple devices and the old sync only did Windows settings . The company I work for still use an older version of Office and still on Windows 7. I don't know what the incentives are for a business to change to rented space and software.

    I see. LOL! Your company is one step ahead. Some are still using XP.

    Depends on the company and if it's worth the investment I'd say. Being in business before, if there was a quicker, more efficient way of performing a task with the least amount of investment that would be the way I'd go.

    Just to let you know; I have six W10s (two 17063s) on 3 PCs and a Windows 950XL phone all synced via my MSA. I look forward to the day I can get Timeline and sets on all of them.

    BTW, thanks, but you need not @ me all the time. I read my threads.

    Timeline appears to be quite limited at the moment and sets haven't made it to me yet. It looks interesting but we'll see.
