Here is another shortcut that can be used in the new version of windows 10 v. 1803.
Start dictating anything that you want to  type. All you need to do is to hit the key combination of the Windows Key and the H Key.
It's a quick way to type very easily and not have to worry about 10 finger touch typing has never been my favorite
(I tried this in both Edge and Chrome.)

If you had watched the video, you would have known. (That's a quiz for you.) :)

Once you've upgraded to Windows 10 April 2018 release and you're happy,
It's time to do a cleanup:
[ SNIP]
You have 10 days to go back to your old version. Once you do this, there is no going back.
For me, this resulted in quite a bit of regained drive space:

Well the 2 updates so close together is confusing for the folks I've talked too.

Why??? One was an update, the other is an upgrade.

Don't know why, they simply found it confusing.
People uninformed(not technically inclined) often find things confusing.

May 8, 2018—KB4103721 (OS Build 17134.48)
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4103721/windows-10-update-kb4103721
This addresses quite a few bugs so if you're on the latest Windows release (1803), update

An interesting Shortcut Key Combination:
WindowsKey+ShiftKey+S
Once you press that combination, you'll see this:

You can drag that + (Plus) sign to outline a capture area.
Once selected, you can paste that captured image into any
Photo editing tool like Paint, save it and share it.
Like the photo I attached.

Toshiba laptop updated to the latest version listed above by bob3160.  Build 17134.48.

Appears Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Beta will not run if the new Ransomware feature in Windows Defender Anti-virus is enabled.  The service for MAEB does not start unless this feature is disabled (it is disabled by default, user must turn on).  No warnings or reports of conflicts were ever reported by Windows Defender when MAEB attempted to start on user login.  Only error report window was a Windows error box reporting MAEB service was taking too long to start and would be terminated.

Took the precaution of uninstalling AIS first before running the feature update for version 1803.  Other than the issue above, installation proceeded smoothly and took less than an hour once the installation process in Windows Update completed.

Just a hunch:  Possible users experiencing problems with avast UI crashes and installation failures have left this Ransomware feature enabled and on when trying to install avast. 

Windows 10 Home 64-bit 20H2 Avast Premier Security version 21.3.2459 (build 21.3.6164.652) UI version 1.0.612.

I believe Avast turns that feature off.
