Just as the previous updates, Microsoft will be rolling out a release for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, meaning you may have to wait until this update is available for your device. But you can actually take matters into your own hands; just read on as we show you how you can download and install Windows 10 Fall Creator Update.
How to download and install Windows 10 Fall Creators Update with the use of Update Assistant
If you are yet to receive that pop-up update on your PC, you can download the official final version of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update with the use of Microsoft’s Update Assistant.
If you are ready to do this, go to the Windows 10 Update Assistant page and click ‘Update now’.
After the tool is downloaded, check for the Windows 10 latest version, which includes the Fall Creators Update.
Once it is downloaded, run it and then select ‘Update Now’. You can then leave the rest to the tool. Ensure you save any unsaved work before you start the update because your PC will restart a few times and then it will be updated with the Fall Creator Update. Don’t panic; your saved files and settings will remain intact after the installation.
How to download and install the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update with the use of a fresh install
To install the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update as a fresh install on your PC, you will have to download the ISO file with the Windows Fall Creator Update included.
Ensure you back up your important documents and information before you do this. The downloading and installation process of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update using a fresh install is made easy by Microsoft. Just visit Download Windows 10 page and look at where there is ‘Create Windows 10 installation media’, then click the ‘download tool now’ button.
You will need a blank USB stick or DVD to add the installation file. You need to know that this process wipes anything on the drives, so do not leave any important data on your drive. Also, make sure your USB stick has 5GB available space on it.
You will need to check the processor of your machine whether it is 32-bit or 64-bit so that you can install the right version. If your machine is a recent one, it is most likely going to have a 64-bit processor.
Download and install the tool and then open it up and agree to the terms. On ‘What do you want to do?’ page, select the ‘Create installation media for another PC’ and click ‘Next’. Choose the language, edition and the processor (32-bit or 64-bit) version, then select either ‘ISO file’ or ‘USB flash drive’ depending on whether you are installing from a DVD (select ISO file for this) or a USB drive.
Once the tool has formatted and created installation drive, it is time to restart your PC, boot from the drive and install the Windows 10 Fall Creator Update from scratch.
Boom! You now have Windows 10 Fall Creator Updates installed on your machine, and you can start enjoying it.
