Microsoft Windows 10 April 2018 Update: How to install, new features and more

If you are a Windows 10 user, you will be able to download the free April 2018 Update starting today. Microsoft will be officially rolling out the update to PCs around the world starting May 8, 2018. As part of the latest update, Microsoft is offering a bunch of new features that are said to streamline your Windows experience, and help you cut down on time while working.

How to install/delay the update

The update was initially referred to as the ‘Windows 10 Spring Creators Update’. However, Microsoft has changed the moniker to call it simply ‘Windows 10 April 2018 Update’. If you don’t wish to wait till the global rollout, you can manually install the update by heading to the Settings -> Update and Security to check for the latest update, and install it. It is always advisable to ensure you have your data backed up in an external drive or the cloud before major OS updates.

If you don’t want to participate in the rollout, you can also delay the update by heading to the Settings -> Update and Security, and click on Advanced Options. Here, you will be able to pause updates. This will buy you a month’s time before it prompts you again. You can choose to delay it further by changing the settings to semi-annual (Targeted) to semi-annual.

However, by deferring the update, it is likely that your device will no longer receive security updates and new features which the latest OS version promises. With the latest update, the devices are protected against malware and also aid in performance.

Windows 10 April 2018 update features

Some of the features which are part of the update include a new Timeline feature. This essentially allows you to take your PC back up to 30 days in order to find missing files, documents or projects. It is like an instant way to access what you had been doing weeks ago via automatic save or by search. This feature will be supported on iOS or Android devices while using Microsoft Edge or Office 365.

A new Focus Assist feature provides you with a detailed summary of your missed emails, notifications or updates. You can enable the feature when necessary or set up for specific times when you want to particularly keep the constant notifications at bay, and revisit them later.

With the new update, Microsoft Edge has also been improved. Similar to Google Chrome, you can now mute or unmute tabs on the browser by simply clicking on the audio icon. The browser has also been added with the ability to view books, PDFs, and reading pages in full-scree, option for autofill on web payment forms has also been added. A built-in Grammar Tools button has been added to the browser for reading comprehension.

Cortana, the digital assistant by Microsoft, has been updated to leverage the new Dictation feature. You can now easily start the Dictation mode, set your cursor in a text field and press Win+H, and start talking. What you speak will be converted to on-screen text. This nifty feature has tons of use cases, including applications for those with disabilities.
