Microsoft's Latest Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Now Available

IT

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will be released today, bringing with it Microsoft's new Fluent Design system.

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.

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).

Microsoft has created the Windows 10 ISO files page so that folks who don't have a Windows device, and therefore can't use the Media Creation Tool, can still get the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update ISO files. You can use the ISOs to clean install or upgrade your PC to the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and it's a pretty straightforward way of installing Windows if you are familiar with the process. It should be noted that while the update is being downloaded, you can cancel the installation.

Microsoft showed off new apps at Build that would've made the Fall Creators Update seem like a much bigger deal. "The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update can be experienced on a wide variety of Windows 10 PCs and on a range of Windows Mixed Reality headsets available for the first time today".

You can find a full list of the changes coming in the Fall Creators Update in Microsoft's blog post about its release.

The company's older Windows 7 software remains the industry's most popular operating system. If you are, it will start to download immediately.
