Windows 10 April 2018 Update: An insider’s guide (free PDF)

Despite a delay and a name change, the Windows 10 April 2018 Update has arrived, garnering a lot of attention from tech media. This ebook introduces some of the most significant enhancements, assesses their business value, and walks through the process necessary for getting the update right away—or not at all.

From the ebook:

Windows 10 is never finished, with Microsoft adding a bevvy of new features to the OS twice a year.

The latest bundle of improvements is almost here, with the April 2018 Update available to download from Monday 30 April. The update has arrived slightly later than anticipated, and with a different name than the expected April 2018 Update.

Windows 10 users can expect a smattering of improvements, the most interesting of which is Timeline. It allows users to easily jump back to what they were doing on a Windows 10 device at an earlier point. IT admins and developers also get some smart upgrades to command-line tools and Linux support.

Of course, not everyone will be thrilled to have a major update pushed upon them, even if it will be quicker to install than earlier releases, but there are ways to put off the upgrade.

Here’s everything you need to know about what’s in the Windows 10 April 2018 Update—whether you’re a consumer or an IT admin—how to get it, what you’ll need and, if you’re so inclined, how to put it off for as long as possible.
