How to install the Fall Creators Update
1 Windows Update
The easiest way to download and install the Fall Creators Update is to use the Windows Update tool. Type ‘Windows Update’ in the Search box on the Taskbar, then select ‘Check for updates’. If The Fall Creators Update is ready to be installed on your machine, it will appear here. Click to install the update, and follow the onscreen instructions. Your PC will need to restart, so make sure any open documents are saved before you begin.
2 Update Assistant
If the Fall Creators Update doesn’t appear in Windows Update, then it means Microsoft hasn’t rolled out the update to your device yet. Don’t worry as Microsoft provides a tool for starting the upgrade manually, called the Update Assistant. Go to http://bit.ly/2iWVGEV and click ‘Update now’ to download it, then check for the latest version of Windows 10. Once downloaded, run it, then select Update Now. The tool will do the rest.
3 A fresh install
If you want a fresh install of the Fall Creators Update, you’ll need to download an ISO file with it included. This will wipe all your files and settings, so make sure they are backed up first. Go to the Download Windows 10 web page (http://bit.ly/2A3zV9B), and where it says ‘Create Windows 10 installation media’, click the ‘Download tool now’ button. You’ll need a blank DVD or a USB flash drive with 5GB of free space for the files.
