If your fingers are feeling the strain then the new Windows 10 April update will help.

This new software will bring all the usual security patches and fixes but there's also some new features aimed at helping users get a better experience when using their PCs.

The company confirmed that Windows 10 April 2018 will be available for manual download from official website starting from April 30 and the Over-The-Air (OTA) will be available from the same day, but the roll-out will be carried out in phases across the world.

If you can't wait, there always an option to download April 2018 Update manually.

Named Focus Assist, users can switch off notiications from - for example - email programs and social media apps during working hours to minimise the amount of distractions they might encounter.

At the end of the session "you receive a summary of what came through, whether notifications, emails or updates, while you were heads down".

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. Dark theme, icons, the color contrast has been updated along with the ability to mute tabs, new auto-fill payment APIs, integration with Timeline and more.

The headline feature of Microsoft's incoming update is Timeline, a long-promised feature that lets Windows users view recent activity from the past 30 days.

In fact, the April 2018 Update brings a variety of new features to Microsoft Edge, including full-screen reading, clutter-free printing, grammar tools and autofill on web forms, as well as the new mute option.

Administrators also get a new Microsoft 365 console that can also manage Office 365.

The improved Dictation feature makes it easier than ever for users to take a note, or write a paper, with just their voice.

To start Dictation mode, set your cursor in a text field, then press Win+H and start talking, then watch your words appear on screen.
