Although the easiest way to upgrade to the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is using Windows Update, Microsoft also supports upgrading using the Media Creation Tool.
The Media Creation Tool is available for download from the Microsoft support website, and it allows you to download the installation files for the latest version of Windows 10 to either do a clean install, do an in-place upgrade, or to create an ISO file.
If the Media Creation Tool isn’t working for you, you can also download the Windows 10 Update Assistant (when available). The Update Assistant is a tool similar to the Media Creation Tool, but it’s only possible do an in-place upgrade.
Microsoft is rolling out the version starting October 17, but keep in mind that this will be a slow rollout as usual, and it’ll take months until every device gets the update. The company will be pushing the update to newer computers that are known to work with the Fall Creators Update, and then then update will continue to rollout to other devices.
After the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is manually installed on your device using the Media Creation Tool, you’ll be able to start using the new set of features and changes, such as the new Fluent Design improvements, OneDrive File On-Demand, My People, Emoji, and the slew of new changes in the Settings app.
If you’re looking to download the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update ISO file directly, you can skip the Media Creation Tool using this tip.
