The April 2018 Update to Windows 10 to be available next week

On Monday, Microsoft will start to push out the April 2018 Update to Windows 10, a free upgrade to the operating system adds a bunch of new features.

One of them is „Timeline”, a way to keep track of what files you were working on, when you were working on them, and from what devices. It will also keep a history of websites you've visited. Timeline goes back a total of 30 days, and it incorporates a number of Windows 10 apps. The April 2018 Update is also known as Version 1803 (it was codenamed Redstone 4, and it was informally called the Spring Creators Update). “With our latest major release – the Windows 10 April 2018 Update – we want to give you back some of your greatest currency, your time,” Yusuf Mehdi, the corporate vice president of the Windows and Devices Group, wrote in a blog post on Friday.

Windows 10 will start bugging you to upgrade beginning on May 8 and pushing it out as part of the regular update process.
