Don’t install the new Windows 10 update yourself, warns Microsoft


Microsoft has pleaded with impatient users not to manually install its new bumper Windows 10 update themselves and instead urged them to wait until a more stable version of the update is roll out to their device.

The Windows 10 Creators Update was officially launched on April 11 but users have been able to manually download it from the Microsoft website since April 5 via the firm’s Update Assistant tool.

However, users that jumped the gun and downloaded the update themselves, rather than waiting for Microsoft to roll it out to their device, have found (perhaps unsurprisingly) that it is full of bugs and has been playing havoc with older machines.

Microsoft has now asked users to stop manually installing the update and wait until the bugs are ironed out and for the update to automatically rollout out to their computer.

“We continue to recommend (unless you’re an advanced user who is prepared to work through some issues) that you wait until the Windows 10 Creators Update is automatically offered to you,” Microsoft said in a blog post.

“When your device becomes eligible for the Creators Update rollout, you’ll be prompted to make some important choices on your privacy settings before the Creators Update can install.”

The news comes after data released earlier this week revealed that the Creators Update is currently running on about 10 percent of Windows 10 machines worldwide.

Meanwhile, Microsoft has also confirmed that it has started rolling out the Windows 10 Creators Update to mobile users.
