Windows 10's April 2018 Update is now generally available, and these are steps to get it as soon as possible.
Providing nothing goes wrong, Microsoft is officially beginning the rollout of the Windows 10 April 2018 Update (version 1803) on April 30, 2018. This is the fifth major release for compatible devices with new features and changes to improve security, privacy, performance, and productivity.
In version 1803, you'll find new features like Timeline, Nearby Sharing, and Graphics settings. Windows 10 continues the gradual rollout of Fluent Design in the Start menu, taskbar, Settings, and throughout the experience. Users get more control over their privacy, such as options to view and delete telemetry data and deny file access to apps. The Settings app receives a lot of tweaks, including a new section to manage fonts, Microsoft Edge gets updated, and a lot more.
As usual, Microsoft is expected to push the new version gradually, meaning that the feature update won't be available on every PC on day one. On April 30, the update will be available for those who want to get it manually, and then on May 8, it'll start rolling out through Windows Update. However, bear in mind that some devices may take up to several months before they get it automatically. However, if you don't want to wait, there's more than one way to force the April 2018 Update onto your computer.
