With the April 2018 Update, you can now enable a setting that tells Windows to try and fix any apps it detects has become blurry due to screen resolution changes.

While many things about the bi-annual update are known, last week Microsoft dropped the details about the release date.

Microsoft has made the latest version of Windows 10, called the April 2018 Update, available just in time for its name to remain accurate, with a focus on features for time and task management.

To install the April 2018 Update, all you have to do is go here, and click on the Update now button. The April 2018 Update is the fourth major update, preceded by the Fall Creators Update (Redstone 3), Creators Update (Redstone 2), and Anniversary Update (Redstone 1).

The first of a biannual set of updates, the patch brings a host of new additions to the platform, including a feature called "Timeline".

Focus Assist is aimed at helping users concentrate, and can be turned on manually or scheduled. You can use the two standards now to send files wirelessly across Windows 10 devices, you also control on which device you choose to send or accept files from. This essentially allows you to take your PC back up to 30 days in order to find missing files, documents or projects.

This feature is also a boon for those Windows users who spread their work across Android and iOS smartphones and tablets (which is to say, everyone except the dozen Windows Phone users out there), as the Edge browser and Android launcher allow you to sync activity from those devices as well. What this does is essentially mute and hide notifications and emails for a period of time.

The "Windows 10 April 2018 Update" is aimed at "giving back time" to users, and its main feature is Timeline. While Microsoft is replacing more and more old Win32 parts of the operating system with new, modern Fluent Design counterparts, Explorer is the one big holdout that's still fully Win32, looking horribly out of place among all the fast, new, and responsive Fluent Design parts of the operating system. "Much of this time is spent on social media, where the constant stream of distractions across our myriad of devices makes it hard to focus", explains Microsoft's blog.

Click on Update & Security Windows Insider Program Get Started.

If you want to install Windows 10 directly from the ISO file without using a DVD or flash drive, you can do so by mounting the ISO file. In Windows 10, version 1709 and earlier versions, the app is included in the installation image. That'll be the way most people get this update.

Phased Rollouts Availability of the updates is actually determined by Microsoft's algorithms.

As it the case with every Windows 10 update, the rollout will happen in a phased manner over the weeks.
