Windows 10 April 2018 Update (version 1803) is still rolling out worldwide as a free update for compatible desktops, laptops, and tablets. Windows 10 April update is the fifth major update that tech giant Microsoft is releasing and it offers a new set of features and modifications to enhance productiveness, overall performance, and protection. This update is the first of two updates coming out this year.
We all know whenever a new update is released, a set of new issues arise amongst users because feature updates are totally different from the regular updates we get every month. This occurs majorly due to the reconstruction of the Windows 10 OS which often introduces compatibility problems and new bugs that may impact the Windows experience negatively.
When you’re performing a fresh installation of Windows, you’re most likely not face any issue with any new update. But of course, we don’t want to clean install Windows each time there’s a new update since we can update directly via Windows update.
However, Windows update installation could fail sometimes due to outdated/incompatible drivers, conflicts amongst programs, and some personalization you may have applied may prevent an update from installing.
