New tools for update delivery optimisation, device management and reducing user distractions are among the features included in Microsoft's Windows 10 April 2018 Update. The most obvious manifestation of that is the new Timeline feature, which is the highlight of the release.
Called Redstone 4, it is the fifth big update to arrive after Microsoft's decision to switch to change its product upgrade cycle to and deliver updates every six months. In December 2017, Microsoft had unveiled the first batch of devices from OEMs like HP, Lenovo, and Asus running Windows 10 on Snapdragon 835 chips.
You can check to see if the Windows 10 April 2018 Update is available for you to download via Windows Update by heading to Settings - Update and Security- Check for Updates. "I think people were really craving a lot more simplicity", Aaron Woodman, a director at Microsoft, told The Verge.
Microsoft's trying to excite end-users with a new feature called "Focus Assist" created to help you "get things done without distractions, like social media or other notifications". If you need the Windows symbols, connect to the Microsoft Symbol Server to cache your symbols locally or use a manifest file with SymChk.exe on a computer with internet access.
The marquee feature of the update is called Timeline. Microsoft says, "Timeline can help you get back this wasted time", spent on trying to locate documents or photos.
