Windows' importance declines, Microsoft adapts

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

And good news! After initially going with "Windows 10 Spring Creators Update", Microsoft has made a decision to jettison its name branding strategy and adopt a more neutral numerical designation.

This obviously taps into the Timeline feature to pop up the info.

Microsoft is now rolling out a new update for its Windows 10 operating system.

This means updates are delivered to desktops and laptops via one device over a local area network rather than being fetched by each individual system over the internet, or through a remote management server.

In Windows 10, the People app shows mail from Office 365 contacts and contacts from your school or work organization under Conversations.

Some Windows 10 users in Thailand for example have only just received the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, which was released in October 2017.

The idea is to make it easier for people to get back to what they were working on before.

Microsoft's trying to excite end-users with a new feature called "Focus Assist" created to help you "get things done without distractions, like social media or other notifications". You can use the two standards now to send files wirelessly across Windows 10 devices, you also control on which device you choose to send or accept files from.

Apple Reportedly Working on AR/ VR Wireless Headset With Dual 8K Displays
Moreover, the future VR/AR gadget will render in 8K resolution per each eye, summing a 16K resolution in total. The headset which will not require any external sensor will also feature built-in location tracking sensors.

Better yet, Microsoft is also updating its apps across iOS and Android to take advantage of Timeline, starting with Microsoft Edge for mobile. "How do we help customers really get things complete and save time and be more efficient on Windows than on any other operating system".

Timeline lets users go back in time up to 30 days on their Widows 10 PC. Fluent Design adds some much-needed depth and distinctiveness to the otherwise flat user interface, and has nice, unobtrusive animations and highlighting effects that make using such a flat UI a lot less.

If you can't wait, there always an option to download April 2018 Update manually. 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.

HomeGroup. Once called out in Windows 7 Setup, the HomeGroup feature, finally, is dead.

Microsoft Edge tabs can now be muted (hooray!) Edge performance has also been tweaked and updated. Windows Update ensures that your PC passes all of Microsoft's checks and won't run into any problems once the update is installed. Just visit Microsoft's download page to get the Media Creation Tool.

Cortana, the digital assistant by Microsoft, has been updated to leverage the new Dictation feature.

Users that press the Windows key and H will now be able to dictate to their device instead of typing, although this is only currently available in US English.
