Today “developer” will take a look at some new features of win10 1803 in April 2018.
Win10 1803 (updated in April) mainly adds seven new functions, such as timeline, focus assistant, etc. Let’s learn about it with Xiaobian.
1. Timeline: easy to find important content on the computer
Nowadays, almost all the time is closely related to the screen. Personal information is distributed on multiple devices, which makes it more and more difficult to find information.
We’ve all had the experience of remembering to write some documents, but looking through emails and folders, we found nothing. Or remember to see some favorite photos and videos, but can’t find them.The new timeline function of win10 April system can help us avoid wasting these time。
Click windows + tab to quickly open the timeline
With the help of the timeline function, the activity content within 30 days can be retrieved on the win10 computer in time, whether it is the content used earlier today, last week, or a few weeks ago.
Remember to clean up the activity records that you don’t want others to see in time.
2. Focus assistant: help you work more focused
Today, most of us spend 3-6 hours a day in front of the screen of electronic devices, most of which is spent on social media, and the continuous interference information from various devices makes it difficult for us to focus.
In many ways, our attention is being distracted, and all kinds of miscellaneous information continue to attract our attention, leading to our inability to focus on those important things. It’s a war of concentration.

Through win10 April system update, we have launched the focus assistant function, which helps us focus on the business we are dealing with. We can turn on the focus assistant at any time, so that we can deal with the business in hand without interference from social media or other notifications.
You can also choose to turn it on automatically at a specific time. When the task is completed, a summary will be received, which contains all the information received during the focused work, including notifications, emails, updates, etc.
3. Share nearby: easily share data with nearby equipment
It’s always inconvenient to transfer data between mobile phone and computer or between computers. Now win10 April system update brings us the function of “sharing nearby” to transfer data easily.

4. Forgot the password of the local account? Easy recovery now
When using win10, I occasionally encounter an awkward problem: I forget my account password, and my computer does not log in to Microsoft account. I only set a local account, and I can’t reset the password through Microsoft Server. It seems that there is no other way but to reinstall the system.
Now, in the win10 April system update, you can set three security issues for your local account in advance. If there is an embarrassing problem of password forgetting, you can retrieve your password at any time through these issues.

6. Is privacy data collected by Microsoft? Now centralized management

In the system update of win10 April edition, the “diagnostic data viewer” will be integrated in the system settings. You can manage the customized service content provided by Microsoft according to the privacy information by yourself, view the privacy data collected by Microsoft, and jump to the webpage to manage these data.

Shopping will also be easier, with secure storage of addresses, payments and other information, optionally filled in automatically when using web payment.
