It’s April and the Windows 10 Creators Update is taking place. Microsoft formally announced the release date for the Creators Update and shed a bit of light on how the rollout will take place. As with the Anniversary Update, the rollout will be slow. Users of newer devices will receive the update first. You can choose to wait for the update to roll out, but that could take up to two months. The good news if you’re already running Windows 10, you can force the upgrade with Upgrade Assistant or you can get the ISO. That is how.

some precautions

Make sure that all available updates have been installed on your system. To be safe, start the download and update process from your administrator account and not from a local or non-administrator account. Update Assistant will download and install the Windows 10 Creators Update. If you use a local account to update. the application will request administrative rights before starting to download files and before installing the update. That being said, it is still possible for the update to fail. It is better to use the administrator account.

If you’ve had problems with Windows Updates in the past, particularly the Anniversary Update, it’s a good idea to back up your system and/or create a restore point in case things go wrong.
