How To Download Windows 10 Creators Update

Windows 10 Creators Update release date: April 11th

Device compatibility: All Windows 10 devices (Ink features for Ink-enabled devices only)

Key features: Paint 3D, Ink enhancements, new Edge features

Microsoft has made it very easy to download the latest version of Windows 10 manually, and the latest version available contains all the key features of the Creators Update

Simply head to the Windows 10 Media Creation tool page on Microsoft’s website. You should see a grey bar that states “We noticed you are running Windows 10. If you would like to update to the latest version, click Update now.”

Click on the ‘Update Now’ button and follow the steps in the window that opens, and that should do the trick! The download will run in the background (and is around 3.5GB) and will then ask you to restart to finalise the installation.

There are fewer risks involved with downloading the update this way compared to signing up to the Insider scheme that Microsoft runs for Windows 10, but it’s always worth making a failsafe recovery backup of Windows if you have stuff you don’t want to lose. Search for ‘recovery’ in the Start Menu to get one set up before you download the Creators Update.
