Get the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update right now

For those on a home or small business connection P2P updating can eat through your data allowance and kill performance; luckily, Microsoft saw fit to include some controls that limit download and upload bandwidth, as well as put a cap on the maximum data you'll use in a month, in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Finally integrated is the long-promised desktop chat integration for contacts from LinkedIn and Skype, as well as a new Android and iPhone linking feature.

The new version of the OS comes with support for Windows Mixed Reality headsets that go on sale today, contacts in the taskbar, and some tweaks in the looks department as Microsoft is starting to implement its new Fluent Design language in Windows. Users can check whether or not the update is available for them by heading over to Windows Update. Launching in parallel is a host of affordable AR headsets, courtesy of collaboration between Microsoft and several major tech companies.

The easiest way to install Fall Creators Update is to just use Windows Update. "While Windows 7 still has a almost 50% share on the desktop market at the time of this writing, Microsoft is known for introducing a number of structural security improvements and sometimes even ordinary bugfixes only to the most recent Windows platform". Although most of the features were showcased in the video, Microsoft is expecting to release more in the coming months. Perhaps the coolest was Story Remix, an app that lets you combine photos, videos, music, and 3D objects into one AI-generated video. Installing with the Update Assistant is probably the better choice as it is easier to use, but you can also get a fresh start by downloading the ISO using the Media Creation Tool and clean installing using the ISO. Given that the update is free, there is no reason for you not to get it as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, researchers with Google's Project Zero have warned that users of Windows 7 and 8 face potential hacking risks because they receive software updates less frequently than do Windows 10 users. The Fall Creators Update is set to arrive on October 17.

But waiting is for squares.

Once you download and open up the Update Assistant, all you need to do is click on a few "Next" buttons to upgrade to Fall Creators Update (screenshot carries wrong build no; the latest build is 16299 or version 1709). If you are interested in getting the Creators Update using the Update Assistant, you can download it from this link - do keep in mind that the link will automatically start downloading the tool.
