The Windows 10 update Microsoft has been promising will finally be out on Monday, April 30. Only, it won’t be called the Spring’s Creators Update, as many people expected. Microsoft has instead opted to name it Windows 10 April 2018 Update. Here’s what you can expect.
Among the big new features included is Timeline, a feature that allows Windows 10 PC users to “go back in time up to 30 days to find your stuff.” The feature will allow people to find what they were working on a few weeks ago and pick up right where they left off, whether it’s on a PC or mobile device. This video provides a helpful explanation of what Timeline can do.
The second notable feature is Focus Assist, which is designed to “help you stay in the zone.”
Turn on Focus Assist whenever you want to get things done without distractions, like social media or other notifications. Or set it to turn on automatically at certain times during the day when you want focused time. When you finished, you receive a summary of what came through, whether notifications, emails, or updates, while you were heads down.
The final update is coming to Microsoft Edge, which allows users to quickly mute and unmute tabs. Edge users will also get a more feature-rich experience while reading books and viewing PDFs, and there’s a new autofill function for online shopping.
The April 2018 Update will begin rolling out as a free download on Monday, April 30.
