Windows 10 April 2018 Update : New Features

Windows 10 April 2018 Update : New Features
Windows 10 April 2018 update is already out for the Windows 10 devices and it has got some great improvements over the previous versions of it. If you have still not received the update, open settings and check for the update manually to get the update and if the update is still not available for your PC, you may download and install it manually using Windows 10 update assistant.
I installed the update in my laptop and the installation went smooth and I didn't notice and errors or bugs during the installation. The previous windows updates, especially monthly cumulative updates caused lots of problems during installation but the Windows 10 April 2018 update (Feature update to Windows 10, version 1803) installed easily.
After it got installed, It's welcome screen opened with Edge browser and I noticed improvements in display resolution and windows graphical elements. The new Windows 10 April 2018 update has a few new features as well which I'll mention below. With this update, Microsoft has removed a few features too which you can check In This MS Document. Let's have a look on what's new in Windows 10 April 2018 Update.

1. TIMELINE
Timeline replaces the familiar "Task View" button that shows what apps are currently running. Timeline as well, shows the list of what apps are running and along with that, it shows the history of activities and apps you've used in the past 30 days. These activities and apps sync across multiple devices and you can easily pick the same activity in any device you are signed into with your Microsoft account.

2. DICTATION
This feaure of Windows 10 is like speech to text but is more accurate and easy to access. If your computer's default language is set to English-US, you can use the dictation feature by pressing Windows + H keys together. If you have a good mic, you can write a whole document just by speaking the sentences. I'm impressed with the accuracy of the dictation tool, it is amazing (you should have a clear English accent to use this feature efficiently)

3. MICROSOFT EDGE TAB MUTING
Google chrome has added this feature recently, and Microsoft also brings the feature to it's Edge browser with April 2018 update. Using this feature, you can mute loud and annoying websites (with autoplay enabled video ads). Edge certainly seems to be a better option for browsing the web with this feature, but still it couldn't compete with chrome and requires improvements.

4. FIX BLURRY APPS
In windows 10, you might have noticed that scaling some of the apps in windows 10 makes them blurry. With this update, Microsoft has fixed the issue and the apps will be auto adjusted to look sharp and clear even after scaling them or changing the monitor.

5. SEPARATE PREFERENCES FOR DIFFERENT APPS
This is a great feature that has been added in Windows 10 April 2018 update. You can now set input and output devices per application. For example, you can set your woofers for Spotify app and can set headphones for browser. In the same way, you can set your desk mic for podcasting app and studio mic for your music recording software at the same time.

6. QUICK BLUETOOTH PAIRING
Microsoft has added quick notification for pairing Bluetooth accessories. Whenever a Bluetooth peripheral would be in range, Windows will produce a notification to quickly connect to the Bluetooth peripheral (such as Bluetooth mouse).

7. LESS NOTIFICATIONS FOR WINDOWS DEFENDER
Windows defender scan notifications are really annoying sometimes and with this update, Microsoft has reduced these notifications. You can now suppress these notifications and get rid of the windows defender notifications after every successful scan.

8. NEARBY SHARING
This is a feature similar to Apple's AirDrop that allows you to share files with nearby Bluetooth enabled devices. Nearby sharing lets you easily share website, photos or documents to any nearby Windows 10 machine. This feature is disabled by default in Windows 10 and you can enable it from settings.

9. FOCUS ASSIST
Microsoft's "Quiet Hours" is now "Focus Assist". It is same as the Airplane Mode of Android. Focus Assist will mute all the notifications when you are busy and don't want to be disturbed. You still have a choice to allow particular apps of your choice to show notifications while the Focus Assist is active.

10. MANUAL GAMING PERFORMANCE
With Windows 10 April 2018 update, you can customize graphics performance per game. Using this feature, you can set games to High Performance or Power Saving. This feature is useful if you want to play a game allowing it to use limited graphics resources to save battery.

If you have installed the new Windows 10 April 2018 update, share your experience with it in the comments. If there are any issues with your PC after installing it, please let me know and I'll try to get some troubleshooting steps to fix those issues.

Fix Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB4088776 Installation Error

Fix Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB4088776 Installation Error
In recent Windows 10 cumulative updates (like, KB4088776), people are facing a lot of problem with the installation of the cumulative updates. It gets downloaded but at the time of installation, it fails with different error codes (0x800f0900, 0x800f081f, 0x80070002, 0x80240034 etc). I've checked Microsoft forums and found that the issue is still unresolved and Microsoft says that it would release the fix for it soon but still there are no fixes released for the errors. I had the same issue with my own laptop and it was really frustrating that after the installation attempt of the KB4088776, my laptop froze and it became so unstable that I had to reinstall Windows. After testing some troubleshooting steps, I finally made it and was able to install the update successfully. Here are the steps I followed and you should try them too if you had the issues with Windows 10 cumulative update installations. But before starting the troubleshooting steps, I recommend enabling DotNet 3.5 using the method I explained here: http://www.pctricksguru.com/2014/01/how-to-fix-dot-net-35-error-in-windows-8.html and It works for Windows 10 as well. I recommend you logging into Windows with microsoft account too before starting the troubleshooting. So when you are ready, follow the steps given below:

1. First of all, open cmd with admin and run the following command:
wusa /uninstall /kb:4054517
Running this command will uninstall the previous cumulative update from Feb 2018. I'm sure that Jan 2018 update also failed for most of the PCs but if you find any PC with Jan cumulative update already installed, you must uninstall that update too using the same command, just replace the KB number with the Jan 2018 update. Uninstallation will take some time so let the command uninstall the faulty KB updates, don't do anything, sit back and relax until the uninstallation of the Jan and Feb cumulative update is completed. If you are prompted to restart the computer, do it.

2. Now open cmd with admin and run the following command:
SC.exe config trustedinstaller start=auto
Now restart the computer.

3. Now the next thing to do is, open Windows group policy editor (open RUN and type the command gpedit.msc and hit enter). Now expand "Computer Configurations > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Updates". If you click on Windows Updates, at the right side of the policy editor window, set the following properties to "Disabled" by double clicking on them and choosing the Disable option.
a) Allow Automatic Updates Immediate Installation
b) Configure Automatic Updates
gpedit.msc group policy editor

4. After setting both of these properties as Disabled, open the cmd with admin rights again and run the following commands one by one:
net stop wuauserv 
net stop cryptSvc 
net stop bits 
net stop msiserver
ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old 
ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 Catroot2.old

Note: While running C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old command, you might get "Access Denied" error. "ren" command is used to rename any folder in DOS, and So don't worry if you get this error, because DataStore folder in the SystemDistribution folder is always in use by existing windows processes, so you can delete or modify it. So open C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder and delete all the contents (DataStore might not get deleted, so don't mess with that) within the folder.

4. Now in the cmd window, run the following commands one by one:
net start wuauserv 
net start cryptSvc 
net start bits 
net start msiserver

5. Now don't check for updates from the settings, because it will mess up the SoftwareDistribution folder. Download the msu installer for KB4088776 update from:
http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/secu/2018/03/windows10.0-kb4088776-x64_55756340f1e2c2090f94de6d256eafd75e1cee9c.msu

6. After finishing the download, go offline, if possible and then start the installation of the downloaded msu file.

7. The installation will take about 4 to 5 minutes (or more) and finally it will end up with the successful installation of the KB update.
Fix Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB4088776 Installation Error

8. Now restart the computer and check for the updates history, you will see that KB4088776 has been installed and you will see that there are no updates pending if you check for windows updates.

9. Now restore the changes made in step 3.

NOTE: Follow the steps exactly in the way I told to avoid any errors. In a few PCs, During restart, you might face a blank screen issue after windows boot up but no need to panic, the blank screen would be there for about 10 minutes and then it would never appear again. If you have installed any Antivirus, I recommend uninstalling it completely. After the troubleshooting, you may reinstall it. But if you don't have the key for Antivirus, you should disable it instead of uninstalling it. In my PC, I was using AVG free version and I performed all these troubleshooting steps after removing AVG completely.

That's it. I hope these steps would resolve the Windows 10 Cumulative update installation issues. Keep visiting PC Tricks Guru for more tips and tricks.

How to bring back Classic Photo Viewer in Windows 10
Windows 10 is a feature rich operating system by Microsoft and it has lots of new features and apps. "Photos" is the new photo viewer in Windows 10 that has replaced the classic photo viewer in Windows 10. Personally, I don't like the new Photos app and would prefer the old photo viewer instead, because it was fast and had simple layout. So if you are also the one who likes the old photo viewer of Windows, I'd tell you a simple way to bring the old photo viewer back in Windows 10. You need to follow the steps given below to enable the old photo viewer in Windows 10:

Get Upto Rs.180 cashback for every order you place through CashBurp

Get Upto Rs.180 cashback for every order you place through CashBurp
Cashburp is a great website that offers good cashback for your online purchases. Currently they have cashbacks available for the orders placed from MyVishal website but it is expected that they would add more online stores in the list of cashback eligible sites.
The best thing about this website is that it offers cashback upto Rs.180 to 200 per order and there is no minimum order amount required. For example, if you buy a T-Shirt of Rs.199 from MyVishal store through Cashburp, you will get Rs.180 cashback and the effective amount for your purchase would be Rs.19 only, isn't it cool?

Let's have a look about how to get started and you must follow every step I'm gonna explain here very carefully otherwise your cashback will not be listed in your cashburp account. It is personally tested by me and I've really got the cashbacks and that's the reason I'm sharing the details with you all. Let's get started:

1. First of all, open cashburp website from THIS LINK and sign up for an account.
2. After signing up, open a new tab and sign up on MyVishal website using THIS LINK.
3. After signing up on both the websites, sign into both of them.
4. Now you can close the myvishal tab. From the cashburp website's homepage, you will see the top stores' list. Click on the "MyVishal" store button and it will open the list of available offers for MyVishal store.

click myvishal store

5. Choose any of the offer and click "View Coupon" button next to it. A new tab will open with a coupon code and the previous tab will be redirected to MyVishal website. Now make sure that you place your orders from the MyVishal tab which was redirected in the cashburp's previous window. Otherwise your cashback might not be listed in the cashburp account.

list of MyVishal coupons

6. Make sure you are logged into MyVishal and Pick any product of any price you like from the MyVishal window and at the time of checkout, apply the coupon code you got in the new tab of Cashburp. As an example, you may use POSTBACK10 to get 10% instant discount on your cart value.
7. Make the payment and complete the order.
8. Now from the cashburp website, check Menu > Account > My Cashback section and you will see that your cashback will be in Pending status.

cashback status

9. The cashback will be approved after 45 days of the product delivery and then you can withdraw it in your paytm wallet.

approved cashbacks
paid in paytm

10. Make one thing clear that if you cancel or return your product, then the cashback status will be rejected, so make sure your orders are genuine.
11. I recommend placing orders one by one because for every order number, you will get the cashback, so suppose you have to by a Shirt and a Jacket, instead of buying them at once by adding them both in the single cart, order them one by one because it will create two order IDs and you will get cashback for two orders.
12. That's it. If you still have any doubts, drop your comments below and I'll reply. Happy Shopping!

Note: Always make sure to buy the products from the MyVishal tab which is redirected through Cashburp site to be eligible for the cashback.

Fix "The program can’t start because VCRUNTIME140.DLL is missing from your computer" Error

Fix "The program can’t start because VCRUNTIME140.DLL is missing from your computer" Error
While opening any app in your windows machine, if you encounter an error – "The program can’t start because VCRUNTIME140.DLL is missing from your computer" then you need to troubleshoot a few things which I'll let you know about in this post. But before troubleshooting the issue, let me tell you the reason behind this error. This error messages pops up when you try to open an application that requires VCRUNTIME140.DLL file but due to any corruption or data loss, it is not able to access the file. VCRUNTIME140.DLL is a Microsoft C Runtime Library application extension which is located in the System32 folder of the C:/Windows directory. It's size is around 86KB and it is installed by Microsoft Visual Studio. Any missing file from Microsoft Visual Studio runtime library can case such errors to be popped up. Let's see how to fix this error:
  • First of all, run the following commands in cmd with admin rights.
sfc /scannow
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    • If the problem is not fixed by running the above commands, you can try to download the missing dll file from internet and paste it in the location where it is supposed to be, usually it is C:/Windows/System32. After pasting the dll file, restart the computer and check if the application starts working.
    • The other possible solution is to install the latest from Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package from here.
    • Try to re-register the dll file. Read the process Here.
    • If the above two steps don't work, then try uninstalling the appplication completely using Revo Uninstaller Pro and delete all the remaining leftovers of the application and reinstall the application. Most of the times, new Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages get installed at the time of the installation of the application itself.
    • If none of the above steps worked, then repair your windows OS with the installation media or perform an in-place system upgrade which will repair all the corrupted files of your operating system.
    Similer Errors with same solution:
    api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing
    MSVCR110.dll is missing
    d3compiler_43.dll is missing
    MSVCP140.dll is missing.

    example :  regsvr32 /u msxml3.dll
    To go into the system 32 directory, you may type the command "cd C:/Windows/System32" and press enter in command prompt with admin and then

    Register or Re-Register a dll file

    Google has launched "Tez", it's first UPI based payment system in India. UPI is one of the best ways for cashless and cardless transactions which is fast and secure. All you need is to link your bank account with the UPI enabled app (PhonePe, Kotak 911 etc) and you will get your unique UPI payment address. If any other user sends money to your UPI address, the amount will be credited instantly in your bank account and the best thing is, there are no transaction charges like IMPS transfer. Let's see how to install and use the Google's Tez app:

    1. First of all, you need to know that to be able to use UPI, you must have a bank account and a debit card for your account because you will need to use the debit card details to generate UPI address and UPI transaction PIN. The most important thing, your mobile number which you use to sign up must be linked with the bank account becasue the app will send a one time password to link your bank account with the UPI app (Don't panic, it is safe and there won't be any unauthorized transactions from your account)

    2. After making sure you have fulfilled all the requirements, you can start creating your UPI address with Tez app. Download and install Tez app in your phone using this link : DOWNLOAD HERE

    3. After clicking the link, you will be redirected to google play store. Install the app in your phone and open it. It will ask you to select language, choose any language of your choice and click on the small arrow icon from the top right corner of the screen (see screenshots).

    4. On the next screen, Tez will ask for your mobile number. Enter your mobile number that is linked with your bank account and make sure that you are using the same mobile number in your phone in which you are installing Tez app. After entering the phone number, it will ask you to select your google account.

    5. On the next screen, it will ask you to secure Tez app. You can either use your current screen lock pattern or can set a new PIN. After setting the protection, app will open.

    7. After you select your bank, Tez will try to find and verify whether any account in that particular bank is linked with your mobile number or not. If any account is linked with your phone number in the selected bank, it will show you the account details and will ask you to set a UPI PIN. If you have not used your account with any other UPI app and it doesn't have any UPI PIN, you can set a new UPI PIN (that will require your debit card details) and if you already used your account with any UPI app, you can use your existing UPI PIN to finish the linking process. Your own UPI ID for Tez app which can be used to receive payments from others will be listed with your account, you may make a note of it, if you want.

    REFER AND EARN PROGRAM
    Google is running a refer and earn program for the Tez app. If you sign up for it and send money to another Tez user, both of you will get Rs.51 as referral reward which will be credited in your bank. To get your Rs.51 reward, you may send Rs.1 only at the upi address ashutoshkushwaha22@okhdfcbank and after the successful transaction, you will get Rs.51 back in your account. Office is valid till 1st April 2018 only.

    Here is a small explaination:

    1. If you install the Tez app from my referral link, you should see my photo in the app home screen. If you don't see, then also you can use pay using "Phone or account number option" to ashutoshkushwaha22@okhdfcbank.

    2. If you click on my pic, you should see a message "Welcome to Tez! Make your first payment and we each get Rs.51!"

    3. At the bottom, click "Pay" and transact Rs.1 to me and after the successful transaction, you will get a message "You earned a reward".

    send Rs.1

    4. Tap over "You eared a reward" and you should see that Rs.51 has been rewarded to you. In the app's homepage, you can see a rewards and offers section, you may check your rewards by clicking "Rewards" too.
