To many people’s happiness, Microsoft made the Windows 10 Creators Update available for download just ahead of the official release that should take place next week. Whoever has registered in the Windows Insider Program now has access to the new features of the OS ahead of regular users. However, you don’t need to join the testing team if you want to see the update as soon as possible.
How to do it?
The easy way to do it is to download the Windows 10 Update Assistant and to follow the instructions you see. If you are already part of the Insider Program and want to enjoy the Windows 10 Creators Update, but you don’t want to receive any more builds in the Insider Preview, than you can choose to do so if you go to the Settings menu and choose this option.
The official date for rolling out the Creators Update is April 11, but according to recent history, some users may actually have to wait even months in a row in order to have it. For example, the Anniversary Update released last year reached 90% of the users that were eligible in seven months.
According to Microsoft, the company will roll the update out gradually, but they hope to complete the process in approximately three months. And it’s highly likely for Microsoft to stagger the update, since they will want to get rid of the bugs and at the same time not overwhelm the servers. As such, it is a sensible move if you want to download it now or during the weekend.
The best news are the fact that the Creators Update will bring lots of new features, such as Paint 3D, braille support, game streaming options, together with improvements in performance and security.
