Microsoft begins rolling out the Windows 10 April Update

Windows 10 April 2018 Update Will Be Rolled Out On April 30th And Will Bring New Features And Improvements

Head to Settings Update & security Windows Security and click the Open Windows Defender Security Center button to disable Windows Defender's built-in security tools. Redmond has been quiet about the arrival date until Friday, when it announced that the latest Windows 10 Update will debut Monday. Also, the new feature can also be accessed by customers using their smartphones.

Timeline is the much awaited top-of-the-line feature in April 2018 Update that allows users to resume their past work and apps on their PC and across different devices. Many of these features focus on enabling you to use Windows 10 in a more efficient manner so that you can get your tasks done quicker and easier. It works across devices too, so you can pick up what you were doing on your phone and pick it up on your desktop machine at a later date. It's called Focus Assist and you will find it in the system settings under Notifications and actions. Without a printer, scanner, external drive or what have you attached to your PC, the update can proceed without going out and trying to locate updated drivers for these devices.

The blog adds that the average person needs about 23 minutes to regroup after being interrupted. The Focus Assist is the new incarnation of a previous feature called the "Do Not Disturb" function. So social media alerts, be whether your favourite YouTuber has uploaded a new video, or the fact that your friend checked into a new location on Facebook, will be turned off when "Focus Assist" is activated. Created to boost productivity, it stops you being distracted by things like social media, email notifications, breaking news stories and more, blocking anything unrelated to the task at hand from going through.

Microsoft has also made several improvements to security in this update. It also helps in simplifying their modern workplace and empowering end users. When reading a book or a PDF on Microsoft Edge, the Reading View mode will ensure that pages can go full-screen.

The new Windows 10 Timeline lets users go back over the last 30 days to easily find their files.

There's also a handy update to Microsoft's Edge browser that will allow users to mute a tab that is playing sounds, as well as a new feature that makes it easy to read documents on the web.

Administrators also get a new Microsoft 365 console that can also manage Office 365. Grammar tools help users deal with complex words and highlight sentence components. Windows 10 now supports voice dictation in any text window, just press the Windows Key + H shortcut and start speaking.

The update was initially referred to as the "Windows 10 Spring Creators Update". As with other Windows 10 feature rollouts, this one will be staged.
