Microsoft recently released Windows 10 Build 17134.1 to the Slow and Release Preview rings. The official release date of version 1803 is still not announced, and even its official name is not revealed. However, Microsoft Edge on Build 17134.1 shows Windows 10 April Update on the homepage.
In Windows 8, Microsoft changed the look of the good old Explorer application completely. It got the Ribbon UI instead of the menu and a toolbar which is hard to disable. Windows 10 includes the same app, along with a new Store app, File Explorer UWP, which is not ready for daily use yet. In recent Windows 10 builds, the classic File Explorer app has got support for a dark theme.

As you may already know , Windows 10 Redstone 4 Build 17133 was highly expected to be the final release for version 1803 after it rolled out to Insiders on the Fast, Slow, and Release Preview rings in a short period of time. However, Microsoft had discovered a bug and the release was postponed. Instead, a new build, Windows 10 Build 17134, was released to Fast ring insiders. Unfortunately, there is a new bug in the OS which can delay its release again.
In Windows 10, most of the network options were moved to Settings. The Setting app and the new Network flyout are completely different from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.
