Microsoft is working on a fix for Windows 10 Chrome bug

The Windows 10 April 2018 Update is finally here following months of beta testing. The update won’t come with significant changes, but there are a lot of exciting things that are worth your time, ranging from Timeline to nearby sharing. However, like any other updates, the April Update has its own issues that may ruin your experience.

A number of users have recently reported that Google Chrome crashes after updating to the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, thus forcing them to reboot the device several times. Some reports also claim that users cannot use Cortana when updating their device. Microsoft is fully aware of that and the company is working on a fix.

Microsoft announced that the fix will come to all Windows 10 users worldwide, but the company has not specified the release date for the update. However, it offers some workarounds for dealing with the issue. The company recommends Windows 10 users simultaneously press the Windows key, Ctrl, Shift, and B to see if the problem is fixed. If you now own a Windows 10-based tablet, you can press the Volume Up and Down buttons together three times. On a laptop, try closing and opening the lid to see if the problem is fixed.

Microsoft confirms that the company will push back the May Update to ensure that everything runs smoothly. The May Update won’t come with new features and changes, instead focusing on bug fixes and system enhancements. Sources say that Microsoft will launch a beta testing for the May Update next week ahead of the final public release.

The Windows 10 April 2018 Update brings a number of changes to the operating system. One of the biggest additions to the Update lies in Timeline, allowing you to quickly access your open apps. Besides, the feature allows you to see what you are browsing on Microsoft Edge. Another big feature lies in the ability to mute tabs in Edge.

The Update also introduces a feature named nearby sharing. As the name implies, the feature allows you to share files and links with nearby PCs. In reality, the feature works similar to Apple’s AirDrop feature.

In Windows 10 April 2018 Update, the Do Not Disturb mode gets a new name (Focus Assist). The feature lets you prevent notifications from popping up when you are busy. This is a great feature that has been around since the day one of Windows 10. However, it had not received updates for a long time.
