How to download Windows 10 April Update right now

Microsoft

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.

Tech giant Microsoft announced the Windows 10 April 2018 update, which will begin to become available for download on April 30 and start to roll out to Windows 10 PCs worldwide on May 8. 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.

Today the April 2018 Windows 10 update was released by Microsoft, squeaking in under the wire, just barely. On the business side, the April 2018 Update will offer some major improvements around IT manageability, Microsoft said. They are expected to launch the next batch of Windows 10 devices running on Snapdragon 845 in the latter half of this year and by that time the next major Windows 10 Update aka Redstone 5 update will be ready to be shipped.

Users can also white-list particular people who can break through the Focus Assist if they are waiting for a specific call or email. Formerly known as the "Spring Creators Update", the April Update will be available for manual download later today, complete with a new update system called "delivery optimisation". The new Timeline view allows users to scroll back in time, up to 30 days into the past, to pick up that old assignment or story.

I suggest you create a backup of your entire system partition before you run the update as the past has shown that users may run into all kinds of issues when they try to upgrade a system to a new feature update release. 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. Windows 10 S mode has arrived, as promised, but Microsoft has mentioned it in the context of kiosks and remote workers rather than the mass mainstream adoption it has forecast.

And finally, there's the dictation feature which allows the user to dictate content to the computer. While this isn't going to "wow" most people, it's surely useful, especially if your company has adopted Slack or a similar tool that's meant to make communications easier but mostly just leads to constant distractions.

Edge now also has the mute option on tabs, and users can go full screen with stuff like PDF files and books. At the time of writing it was a few minutes to midnight on Sunday the 29th in Microsoft's Seattle HQ, but close to 07:00 in London on the 30th, and we can detect no evidence downloads have started.

A new Dictation feature that's accessed by pressing the Windows and H keys simultaneously is also new in Windows 10.

And update they should.
