New Windows 10 update


latest major release – the Windows 10 April 2018 Update – Microsoft wants to give you back some of your greatest currency, your time. Their hope is that you’ll have more time to do what matters most to you – create, play, work or simply do what you love.

What is new?

The service operates on the basis of the “History of tabs” in browsers and stores information about previously opened sites and files. It also displays data about tabs from the Edge browser and files from Office 365, with which the user works on Android and iOS devices.

Focus Assist
The function will help keep the concentration, disabling notifications from social networks, email clients and other services at the right time. Upon completion of the work, the user will receive all emails and notifications. To receive important calls or messages, the user is encouraged to use the list of exceptions.

Microsoft Edge
In the browser, you can turn off sound on separate tabs and save data to fill out payment forms. People who have difficulty reading will benefit from the Grammar Tools button. It will break the words on the page into syllables.

Voice control
The Dictation function will make it possible to create notes or a document using only the voice. Control devices for the “smart home” can be through the assistant Cortana.

Delivery Optimization
The service allows you to download the update to one device, and then transfer it to the rest using a local network. This will reduce the amount of traffic consumed by 90%. Delivery Optimization statistics will be available in Windows Analytics. In particular, it will show how many devices are updated and how much bandwidth is saved.

The Readiness Toolkit for Office helps to check the compatibility of VBA macros and various Office add-ins. Application Health Analyzer identifies dependencies in user-developed applications and ensures that they are compatible with Windows 10 updates.

In the recently released version of ConfigMgr 1802, it was possible to perform step-by-step deployment cycles. This is the next step in automating the maintenance of workplaces based on Windows 10 and Office 365 ProPlus. If the update is deployed to the target group computers without errors, it is automatically launched for the next group of employees.

The tool allows you to deploy and manage software on the service terminals. With the help of the new Microsoft Kiosk browser, created on the basis of Microsoft Edge, one or several terminals can safely and without crashing view web pages in full screen mode.

    Now the function includes a page with the status of the installation. It makes sure that the necessary agreements, settings and applications appear on the device during the initial installation before the end user is at the screen and starts interacting with the device.
