Similar to how Windows 8 users were given the option to opt-in to an early Windows 10 update before it was pushed out to everyone in preferential waves, those who have installed today’s new public Windows 10 update now have the option to opt-in to be one of the first to get the new Windows 10 Creators Update which is looming on the horizon and promises to bring a variety of operating system fixes and improvements in addition to introducing several new features.
To get today’s Windows 10 update, simply open up Settings and click on ‘Update & security’. Then click the ‘Check for updates’ button and follow the instructions. This update will require a restart.
Once the update is installed, or if it’s already been installed, open up the ‘Update & security’ page in Settings once again and there should be a message under the highlighted ‘Update history’ title. It reads, “Good news! The Windows 10 Creators Update is on its way. Want to be one of the first to get it?” and is followed by a link that says, “Yes, show me how”. Clicking on the link will open up a thank you page in Microsoft Edge and that’s all there is to it, the device will be opted-in. Here’s the confirmation message:
Thank you for your interest in being one of the first to experience the Windows 10 Creators Update! We’re finalizing the update and will be ready to share it with you soon. When the update is ready for your device, you’ll receive a notification asking you to review your privacy settings before downloading the update.
Are you going to opt-in for an early update or will you wait for it to roll out naturally? Let us know in the comments below.Further reading: Microsoft, Windows 10, Windows 10 Creators Update
