TechTeam Blog: Spring Creators Update for Windows 10 is on the way

Microsoft is now finalizing and preparing to release the next big update to Windows 10. Known as the “Spring Creators Update” it includes app improvements, UI changes and security enhancements.

The update should begin rolling out in May. The Windows 10 Spring Creators Update packs lots of new changes and features, including updates to Microsoft Edge, the Action Centre, Task View and more.

Microsoft is slowly making steps to eradicate the traditional Windows Control Panel. Several elements such as Sounds, Fonts, and Languages have been migrated to the redesigned Settings app.

Other changes include overall design improvements to Windows 10, a new Notebook and Lists app, a new feature called Nearby Share that lets you send links, documents, photos and more across Bluetooth to devices that are near you, and a brand new reading mode experience in Microsoft Edge.

The update will begin its rollout in May, subject to any last minute delays, but not everyone will get it straight away. Microsoft likes to roll out updates in waves to minimise any issues. Once it determines that the initial update wave went smoothly, it will slowly broaden availability of the update out to more people over time. This can take a few months to fully complete.

The update will show up in Windows Update under the name “Feature update to Windows 10, version 1803”. You can postpone the update for 7 days if you wish, but the update will eventually need to install.

Our Tech Team say, “Once downloaded, it can take anywhere between 20 to 50 minutes to fully install depending on your device, so make sure you set some time aside to apply the update so that you aren’t interrupted when working on something important.
