The Windows 10 Creators Update is now generally available, ahead of the official rollout!

To get started with the installation process, you first need to head to this official Microsoft web page and download the latest version of Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant. After you do so by clicking on the blue “Update Now” button, you should navigate to the folder where the download was saved and click to run the assistant. If all goes well, you should be greeted with this message:


Then, once the assistant begins running, it will perform compatibility checks on your CPU and for disk space, then it will ping Microsoft servers and begin the download processes of the Windows 10 Creators Update. You should be aware that by going this route your files will be right where you left them, and you can go back to a prior version of Windows 10 if you don’t like it. It’s also worth noting the download and install might take a while, so it’s best to minimize, and sit back and relax.
