Windows 10 Fall Creators Update now “fully available”

Laurent Giret

A little less than three months after it started rolling out to Windows 10 PCs worldwide, the Fall Creators Update is now “fully available for all compatible devices, Microsoft announced today. Despite the gradual rollout, the company also said today that the Fall Creators Update was “the fastest Windows 10 release to reach 100M devices, all while achieving higher customer satisfaction ratings compared to prior updates.”

If you’re still running the Anniversary Update or the Creators Update on your PC, you should soon see a reminder telling you that the latest major Windows 10 update is now ready to install. If you don’t want to proceed it immediately, the notification will provide you options for scheduling it a later time.

The situation is a bit different for enterprise users. “To ensure devices in enterprise environments are running the most current and secure version of Windows with the latest security updates, any device on Windows 10 Enterprise edition or Windows 10 Pro edition that is configured to receive updates automatically from Windows Update will be automatically offered Windows 10, version 1709 after January 18, 2018,” Microsoft noted today. This policy won’t apply to PCs running long-term servicing editions of Windows 10.
