Windows 10 April 2018 Update
Are you ready to take charge of Windows 10 April 30th Update (Which in theory will be released May 1st for Australia or close to it lol) Lots of new changes coming to the big new update, here are a few videos to showcase whats coming.
Microsoft is aware that we’re all getting distracted by emails, messages and the endless barrage of social media notifications. In the April update, Windows 10 adds something called Focus Assist which is aimed at disabling these digital distractions. Users can either switch on Focus Assist when they feel the need or have it enabled automatically at certain times of the day. When you’re finishing with your work or important assignments, you’ll then receive a full summary of what you missed while you were in Focus mode. And don’t panic about missing an important message as Microsoft says users can set specific contacts to break through the block.
Google Chrome continues to lead the way when it comes to internet browsers but Microsoft is still working hard to make sure its Edge browser keeps up with the competition. A new update to this software is adding a range of features to help users surf the web more easily and with less interruptions. Once updated, Edge adds a new audio icon to mute and unmute a tab that is playing sound.
Books, PDFs and Reading View pages can go full-screen for a distraction-free reading experience and shopping online now gets easier as your address, payment and other information can be securely saved with the option to auto-fill on web payment forms. There’s also a nice feature when printing from the web with a new option to print with a cleaner and clutter-free format.
Microsoft wants to make it more simple for its Windows 10 users to find the things they’ve been working on. That’s why they are introducing something called Timeline. This feature allows users to go back in time up to 30 days to find their files. It even works across multiple platforms so you can search for things you’ve been working on when using a phone, tablet or laptop.
If your fingers are feeling the strain then the new Windows 10 April update will help. Microsoft is improving its dictation experience with users now able to interact more accurately with their PCs via speech. The firm says it will now be easier than ever to take a note or write a paper, with just your voice. With your cursor in any text field either in Windows 10 or in an app, simply press Win+H and start talking.
