Microsoft has just released the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, the next major update to Windows 10.
The Fall Creators Update introduces a number of new features, as well a new cleaner look and design which Microsoft says “will deliver intuitive, harmonious, responsive and inclusive cross-device experiences and interactions.”
While the new update is available for free to all users running legitimate versions of Windows 10, Microsoft is rolling it out in phases, with newer devices being prioritised.
This means that it could be months before you receive it.
However, there is a way you can download it right now.
Microsoft recommends that all Windows 10 users enable automatic updates and wait until the Fall Creators Update is automatically rolled out to your device.
“As with the Creators Update, the key to our phased approach is actively listening to all available feedback mechanisms and making the appropriate product updates during the rollout,” Microsoft said.
“This allows us to provide a high-quality experience for the broadest set of users at an accelerated rate, while also continually increasing the quality and security of Windows 10.”
The minimum system requirements for the Fall Creators Update are:
Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor or SoC
RAM: 1GB for 32-bit and 2GB for 64-bit
Hard disk space: 16GB for 32-bit OS or 20GB for 64-bit OS
Graphics card: DirectX 9 or later with WDDM 1.0 driver
Display: 800-by-600 resolution
You can check if the update is available to your device by going to:
Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Check for Updates
If the update is ready, it will start to download immediately.
However, if the update hasn’t been pushed to your PC yet but you can’t wait to try out the new update, you can download it manually right now by going to Microsoft’s Software Download site and following the instructions.
