Also known as “Windows 10 Version 1709”, this iteration of Windows 10 changed the overall design and usability of Windows 10. The company has added a number of new features to improve Microsoft’s digital assistants Cortana, Edge and Photos. The new update makes the OS more secure and includes Mixed Reality (MR) support.

Users who do not want to wait for the update to roll out automatically can check for updates on PC manually. However, this will only work if the device qualifies for the “Fall Creator Update” as part of the initial rollout episode. Alternatively, users can get updates manually via software download sites, the company added.
