Windows 10 Creators Update has an official release date of April 11, but in reality it will roll out in waves. Here’s how it will work.
How most users will get Windows 10
April 11 marks the day automatic downloads begin. Do not expect all 400 million Windows 10 users to get the Creators Update at once. I can almost hear the servers beg for mercy. Instead, Microsoft will prioritize: Newer PCs that have the optimal specs for Windows 10 will get the Update first.
To get the Creators Update sooner, you can download the update manually from Microsoft's Download Windows 10 page. This download assumes you already have a license to install Windows 10. You can download the update directly to your PC or create installation media.
