Windows 10 April 2018 Update

by | Apr 30, 2018 | Wharncliffe News

Windows 10 has seen two major updates since its initial release. The next, the catchy-named ‘Windows 10 April 2018 Update’ will be available from April 30 (for some, note the update will not be available to everyone right away), and includes a selection of features designed to make your screen time more efficient. Below is a summary of what to expect:

The most notable change is the Timeline, this can be accessed by pressing Win+Tab, it replaces the old Task View with a mode that lets you see the apps and documents you’ve used in Chronological order. It will make it easy to resume work on older projects by resuming a previous array of Windows without having to recall the file name. But if you don’t like the idea of your computer remembering your activity, there are a few ways of disabling it altogether.

Focus Assist will be replacing the old ‘Quiet Mode,’ muting notifications temporarily. It is possible to turn this feature on and off automatically during certain times of the day. Following a period in Focus Assistant, you’ll see a summary of all the notifications you missed. You will however have the ability to allow selected notifications to pass through – say a call from your partner.

Microsoft Edge is getting a lot of new features, you will finally have the ability to mute tabs. PDFs, books, Reading view will now work in full screen, and in the browser you can now save your payment information for autofill purposes, saving you time on future purchases.

One of our favourite features in the update is Dictation, this makes it super easy to enter text without the need for typing. Just press Win+H and off you go…

Some other additions include simplified IT management tools for enterprise customers, new photo, 3D and Mixed Reality experiences, gaming enhancements, and of course safety improvements.
