Though it is not a massive overhaul to the old version, but there are couple of changes that would tweak the nearly 4-year old OS to make it so fresh. These also include a new light theme, and changes to your search experience, a new feature of Cortana, and many more. Here is what you need to know about the most recent update to the Windows 10.
THE PRICE AND RELEASE DATE
Windows 10 updates are always free and will be in this update. You will sure be able to download the new update via all Windows Update at no extra cost once Microsoft determines it has compatibility with your computer. Rolling out of major Windows 10 updates are steady to ensure the best quality experience for the product, so you might not see it on your computer just right away.
As the name of the update does suggests, a release would be any time in April 2019, but there is no confirmed date as of yet.
THE LIGHT THEME AND IMPROVED START MENU
Microsoft group introduced a dark mode to the known Windows 10 in 2018, and a very new light theme is now coming to add some overall contrast to the windows operating system. This is just the first noticeable change with this new update. The theme makes both the Taskbar, Start Menu and Action Center a very brighter and lighter white background color. Some icons in it’s system tray and Taskbar have also recently changed to match the very new theme. This also includes both OneDrive and File Explorer.
THE CORTANA AND SEARCH
Another very big change is the separation of the Cortana Search in the Windows 10 Taskbar. In the previous releases, both were integrated together. Now, with the new release, the search box in the Taskbar will exclusively be able to launch searches for files and documents, and the circular Cortana icon will trigger the digital assistant.
MORE RESERVED SPACE FOR WINDOWS UPDATE
Sometimes all Windows Update can cause a lot of bug, some data loss, and more failures. With the new April 2019 Update, Microsoft would be enabling customers running Windows 10 Home package to pause updates for up to seven days. This option was only previously available for Windows 10 Enterprise or Professional users, but with just 35-day limit.
Every other Windows 10 release always brings smaller changes in tu and in other areas of the operating system. There is quite a few of these in the new update called, April 2019 Update.
