Windows 10 Creators Update Now Available for Manual Upgrading

If you have absolutely zero patience and want the Windows 10 Creators Update today instead of its official release next Tuesday, you may download the Update Assistant to get the oft-discussed package straight away. Those of you who have updated already and have encountered problems should let me know, so I can laugh at you for not waiting to see if any hidden issues have made it into what should be a bug-free release. I scrolled through the comments and am already seeing complaints about Edge and HDR not working properly on some setups.

The Windows 10 Update Assistant will upgrade any Windows 10 Home or Pro system to the Creators Update; you'll need to grab the latest version of the Assistant and then run it, but it should be straightforward enough. If you're upgrading more than one machine or want to perform a clean install, the Media Creation Tool, available from the same link, is the better bet; the Media Creation Tool can fetch an ISO to burn a DVD or create a bootable USB drive, and that can be used for bare metal installs. The Creators Update itself is build 15063.0, but there will be a small Cumulative Update delivered on April 11.
