If you use Windows 10 there’s some big new features coming your way.
Microsoft is releasing its April 2018 update today which is aimed at making the popular software easier to use and with far less interruptions.
New features such as Focus Assists are bundled with the update which will block all notifications while users are trying to work and there’s changes to the Edge browser which should improve the user experience.
Edge now includes a new audio icon to mute and unmute a tab that is playing sound plus there’s improvements to reading documents on the web and a cleaner format when printing.
Other new features coming to Windows 10 includes Timeline which allows users to go back in time up to 30 days to find their files.
And there’s also better dictation with Microsoft boasting it will now be easier than ever to take a note or write a paper, with just your voice.

As with all updates it’s worth making sure your PC is running the very latest software to keep it running smoothly and avoid any security threats.
However, there is some good and bad news if you want to take advantage of this April upgrade.
Firstly the good news.
In the past, switching to a newer version of Windows 10 wasn’t always pain free with some updates taking hours to install.
Microsoft reckons they’ve fixed this irritation.
After listening to feedback from its customers things should be a lot faster when switching to this latest software.
In fact, rather than the 82 minute update time of the Creators release, or the 51 minute offline update time of the Fall Creators update, the April update should take just 30 minutes.
Now the bad news…
Those excited to see these new features on their PCs may face disappointment.
If Microsoft follows its usual pattern then this Windows 10 April update will be rolled out slowly across the globe.
This means that millions of users are unlikely to see the new features for weeks.
Microsoft does this to make sure the upgrade goes as smoothly as possible and also gives thme time to check for any bugs before the majority of fans download it onto their PCs.
There’s no word on how long a full release will take but some reports have suggested many won’t see the upgrade until May 8.
Express.co.uk has contacted Microsoft for more details and we will update this article when we hear back.
