Beginning today at 10 a.m. P.T., Microsoft will start rolling out the new Windows 10 Fall Creators Update to Windows 10 PCs across the world in phases, starting with newer machines first.
The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update also joins the Xbox One Fall Update both of which bring new features, enhancements and tweaks to both the Windows operating system and the Xbox platform. If you are wondering how to get the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update follow the instructions below :
To manually find out if your device is part of the first phase rollout, check for updates on the Windows Update settings page. In the Search tab, type “Settings”. On the Settings page, navigate to Update & security > Windows Update
On the Windows Update page, simply click Check for updates. This will also check if your device is up to date with the latest monthly security updates. If your device is part of the first phase of roll out, the feature update may begin downloading immediately to your PC. You can still use your PC as you normally would while the update downloads in the background.
Microsoft explains more :
As with the Creators Update, the key to our phased approach is actively listening to all available feedback mechanisms and making the appropriate product updates during the rollout. This allows us to provide a high-quality experience for the broadest set of users at an accelerated rate, while also continually increasing the quality and security of Windows 10. This was our approach with the Creators Update released in April and user feedback on this approach was very positive.
For the best experience, we recommend you wait until Windows 10 is automatically offered to your device. You don’t have to do anything to get the update; it will roll out automatically to you through Windows Update if you’ve chosen to have updates installed automatically on your device. Once the download is complete and the update is ready to install, we’ll check with you, so you can pick the right time to finish the installation and reboot. We do this so we can ensure the update does not disrupt you, and we use active hours to help suggest a good time.
