Microsoft is set to roll out its next major Windows 10 update on 11 April, but it is also getting ready to stagger the rollout. The Creators Update can be manually downloaded using the Windows Update assistant on 5 April.
This option is intended for advanced Windows users to get ahead of the inevitable swarm of machines trying to download the update. Interestingly, the Windows Update assistant already notes the Creators Update. There’s a hyperlink asking if people want to learn how to download the update immediately.
Of course, all this does is link to the update page on the Microsoft store. Presumably, this will change on 5 April when the update is made available for download.
The Creators Update is set to bring with it a new suite of creative tools. These are geared towards the creation of 3D content, which plays into the Windows Holographic interface and Microsoft’s overall push towards practical applications for AR and VR.
The Windows 10 Creators Update is likely going to be a rather large update, which means that people should expect their computers to take a while to start up on 11 April. Which might convince people to update their computers over the weekend save some time instead.
