Windows 10 upgrade steps

The new Windows 10 April update has also brought lots of new features including an updated Edge browser, Cortana enhancements and more.

However, it has also been reported that the Windows 10 spring update (1803) is in a small number of cases, breaking some users features such as the microphone, speakers, mice and in some cases, even browsers. It is thought that the issue stems from unsupported drivers which will mean that the developers of those drivers will need to get busy with their own updates to fix the issues!
