Download the Windows 10 April Update ISO files

We've been expecting the Windows 10 April Update for several weeks now, and while it looked like Microsoft may miss its release window in an effort to solve some last minute bugs, the update will begin rolling out today.

Included in the April 2018 Update is the ability to delete diagnostic data uploaded by Windows to Microsoft.

Microsoft automatically rolls-out updates to those running consumer versions of Windows 10.

Microsoft has been at work on pushing a new update to Windows 10 codenamed Redstone 4. For users, the theme is "make the most of your time".

Focus Assist, which was previously named Quiet Hours, is a new feature that allows you put Windows 10 into a "Do Not Disturb" mode.

Timeline adds 30 days of rollback capability to your PC.It also works cross platform so you can pick up documents you started or edited on mobile using Microsoft Edge or Office 365 on your iOS or Android device. You can turn it on manually or set it up on a schedule, and it'll block notifications and other distractions until you're done. When you select Focus Assist, the stuff you don't want to see disappears. The company won't release the new feature update via Windows Update or other automated updating services, however, and users who would like to get their hands on the new version as soon as possible need to find other ways to grab a copy of it.

"You can now click the audio icon to mute and unmute a tab that is playing sound". Grammar tools help users deal with complex words and highlight sentence components. Users can activate this by pressing Win+H and start talking once the mic symbol appears.
