Windows 10 Update Assistant is a tool that helps you force the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update to your Windows 10 powered machine. I tested the Update Assistant on my Microsoft Surface Pro 3 so I could use the Microsoft OneDrive Files On-Demand feature.
In this article I will briefly describe the Windows 10 Update Assistant steps that will bring the Fall Creators Update to your machine.
Windows 10 Update Assistant – Overview
The Windows 10 Update Assistant is a tool that forces the download and installation of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. The tool provides you with a set-up wizard like approach, which is user-friendly and step-by-step.
So how do you get this update assistant ?
Download Windows 10 Update Assistant
You simply go to the software download page for Windows 10, which looks like the screenshot above. You click on the blue update now button to download the Windows 10 Update Assistant to your download folder, or you can run the installer straight away.
Windows 10 Fall Creators Update installation
The preferred and advised mechanism to install the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is Windows Update. However with the Windows 10 Update Assistant it is a five step process.
- Download and run Windows 10 Update Assistant, Click the update now button
- Pass the PC compatibility check and click on the next button
- Download the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update files (minimize if you prefer to)
- Update ready, restart now to complete (Installation of Fall Creators Update)
- Completed installation and what’s new Edge screen;
The actual installation took me less than 90 minutes, and went smooth.
Concluding thoughts and wrap-up
I’ve successfully installed the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update on my Microsoft Surface Pro 3 with the Windows 10 Update Assistant.
In an extensive blog-post on the Windows Blog you can read What’s New in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Also check out the blog-post that covers the announcement of mixed reality headsets and the Surface Book 2.
As mentioned in the introduction I’m happy with the Fall Creators Update and had no issues so far. I really love the Microsoft OneDrive Files On-Demand feature as stated in the introduction.
The structured step by step approach somehow reminds me of the Windows USB DVD Download tool that I reviewed a couple of years back. Interested in more Windows applications review, check out this page.
