Windows 10 April Update available April 30th

28 April 2018

While there are consumer features in this release, for the enterprise, there are a number of reasons why you should start testing this update and move to it in the near future. If you're an early adopter with a Windows 10 on ARM PC like the HP Envy x2, it will install the 32-bit version. But at least it did have some degree of personality and conveyed what Microsoft was aiming for, even if the whole "creator" thing never quite made all that much sense to me given Windows' mainstream focus.

A little back story: On April 4, Microsoft posted to one of the company's blogs that Windows Server 1803 was generally available. Likely, the "phone" API will be built into Redstone 5 - major update of Windows 10, scheduled for release during the month.

Now, Microsoft is confident that it has stamped out the bugs and that the update is ready for primetime.

Facebook's secret content guidelines now available to public
Facebook says it has detailed local information to help moderators handle the nuances of different locations and languages. A 1996 federal law shelters most technology companies from legal liability for the content users post on their services.

The flagship new feature is Timeline. It is made available via Desktop Bridge - a way of packaging desktop apps to make them compatible with Microsoft Store. For instance, Google Chrome shows up in Timeline, but it's kind of a mess.

If there's one Microsoft product you should care about more than Windows 10, it's the company's Office suite.

The Edge browser gets some new features as well, including a button to mute or unmute sound playing from a specific tab. Perhaps the most notable of them is a full-screen reading view that, continuing the theme of the update, aim to create a more distraction-free environment for viewing documents.

• For online shopping, Edge can save your address to quickly fill out forms.

NFL Draft: Lamar Jackson would like to be mentored by Tom Brady
Since he was selected in the first round, the Patriots might believe that he can be close to an every-down back in the NFL. There isn't a more polarizing player in the 2018 NFL Draft than Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson .

Users also can optionally activate a new Grammar Tools feature, which will break the words on a Web page into syllables and highlight the parts of speech (nouns, adjectives and verbs).

Focus Assist is another April 2018 Update feature, giving Windows users a do-not-disturb mode that's activated from a tile in the Action Center. We'll let you know when we learn more about those. If not, you can perform a quick scan by clicking the Check for updates button. Microsoft reduces requirements of storage, removing components, that is usually not needed in such devices, for example, Internet Explorer and other legacy desktop applications.
