Microsoft's 10 April Update for Windows 10 is arriving today

Microsoft's 10 April Update for Windows 10 is arriving today

That means that the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, which was released in August 2016 is no longer supported and will not receive further bug fixes and security updates.

Most people will probably get the update after April as it gradually rolls out.

That's because the April 2018 Update (otherwise known as Redstone 4 and previously referred to as the Spring Creators Update) is being pushed out to Windows 10 PCs starting later today, and perhaps already, depending on when you read this.

Users may access the latest Windows 10 through the Windows Insider program.

Unless something pops up at the last minute, the Windows 10 April update will be available for manual download today, with automatic update users getting it a little later. On the business side, the April 2018 Update will offer some major improvements around IT manageability, Microsoft said.

The first of a biannual set of updates, the patch brings a host of new additions to the platform, including a feature called "Timeline". If this is the case, you can instead try "forcing" the update to your PC early by heading to Microsoft's Windows 10 Download page and pressing "Update Now" to download the installer. This search tool allows you to look back through 30 days' worth of searches, documents, files and folders to find the information you need.

Keys to Rockets' Game 1 against Utah Jazz
The Jazz, who are leading their series 3-2, were unable to close it out as the Thunder avoided elimination with a 107-99 victory. He averaged 34.3 points with a true shooting percentage of.737 in the four games, with the last being played on February 26.

Timeline also works on devices running Apple's iOS and Google's Android operating system, via Windows 10 PCs, provided Microsoft's Edge web browser or the Office 365 productivity suite is used, and people are signed into their Microsoft accounts. With the new Windows 10 release, "we want to give you back some of your greatest currency, your time", wrote Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president for the Windows and Devices Group at Microsoft, in a blog post.

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

Administrators also get a new Microsoft 365 console that can also manage Office 365. 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 improved Dictation feature in Windows 10 will capture your thoughts quickly and accurately so that brilliant idea you just riffed on with your colleagues or the speech you're practicing for your best friend's wedding isn't lost forever. And finally, "Diagnostics & Feedback" now lets users view the data Windows 10 has collected, and it can quickly and easily be deleted. There will be a new audio icon to mute and unmute a tab that is playing sound.

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

Alternatively, users can potentially trigger the update to arrive, if it's deemed ready for them, by checking the Settings menu in Windows.
