Microsoft's Next Windows 10 Update Arrives Monday”

That means that the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, which was released in August 2016 is no longer supported and will not receive further bug fixes and security updates.

Business and enterprise customers get the Delivery Optimisation feature that sets up a peer-to-peer distribution system for updates.

Windows 10 users should brace themselves from Monday, 30 April as Microsoft starts nagging them to update their computers. If you have XPS Viewer and you update to Windows 10, version 1803, there's no action required.

Microsoft's April 2018 update to its Windows 10 operating system has now been released, over a week after it was initially slated to appear.

Last year's Creators Update left PCs offline for a whopping 82 minutes, and the subsequent Fall Creators Update left you twiddling your thumbs for 51 minutes.

Windows 10 April 2018 Update will also include a Near Share feature which works a lot like Apple's AirDrop as well as quick pairing for Bluetooth Devices.

The Windows Mixed Reality for SteamVR makes it easier for people to play and access virtual reality games from the Steam video game distribution service via their Windows-powered VR headsets.

Lazio beats Sampdoria 2-0 ahead of Juventus vs. Napoli

Nearby sharing lets you share websites, photos, or documents to nearby Windows 10 machines while Focus assist mutes introduces the real do-not-disturb mode to the creative types that don't want to be bothered. It also works for resuming Microsoft Edge and Office 365 activities - allowing users to resume their work when they switch from a smartphone to a PC - including if they're using those applications on an iOS or Android device.

Focus Assist is just that - assists the user with staying focused on the task at hand, blocking all notifications until the feature is turned off, or a specific point in time is reached.

Microsoft's used all sorts of grand language to describe this tool's productivity-enhancing powers and this release of Windows' focus on saving you time.

And you're off! If you encounter any issues installing, check out the April update Reddit megathread where there are already hundreds of comments discussing the update and what's changed.

If the Update Assistant is not working out, you can also try using the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool. Now click the button called "Check for Updates" and this should force the update to begin downloading.

This update makes communication better with a new feature called My People. When reading a book or a PDF on Microsoft Edge, the Reading View mode will ensure that pages can go full-screen. It will also allow for printing web pages in a cleaner format with the new clutter-free printing option.

Both of these programs are found in the C:\Windows\System32 folder, so they will automatically be available from a command line prompt without adding them to your PATH.
