    If I download the latest Windows 10 media creation tool, will this give me the new Creators update ISO?
    Yes. The MCT was updated last week. Download a copy of the MCT now and it will make media for the Creators Update.

    I have spent hours trying to find an answer to this question regarding the new update. I want to do a clean install of the Creators update. If I download the latest Windows 10 media creation tool, will this give me the new Creators update ISO? Thanks in advance.
    This has been stated quite a few times... yes. Yes the Media Creation Tool will give you the ISO file.

    Bree beat me by a split second

    Thanks guys, I had already downloaded the ISO moments ago but was hesitant to install unless I was sure it was the new update.
    I much appreciate the quick responses

    For confirmation, check the Properties for the MCT you downloaded. It should say version 15063, the build for the Creators Update.

    I think my general point was made. Didn't realize I had to write step per step procedure down. I thought that was understood

    Thank you

    it also chooses to install the RealTek audio driver by default so if you're not happy with that you have to go through the routine of getting rid of it - not too easy for beginners...
    Tell me about it. Makes my $100 creative speakers sound like a cheap pair of name name $10 speakers.
    To really stop it from ever installing again go into device manager.

    Right click on RealTek audio driver.
    Click Driver and click on update driver. Yes update driver not roll back that does not work.
    Click Browse my computer for driver software.
    Click the let me pick from the list.
    Choose High definition audio device and ignore the bogus warning.
    Right away you will get better sound no reboot required.

    Then you should use a program like Autoruns to disable all the Realtek audio junk as it still loads in the background using resources but does nothing.

    Doing this it did not even reinstall that POS old 2015 Realtek driver even after installing the Creator's update.

    Bit of a quirk but on 2 of my machines opening the Action Centre from the taskbar and then pressing expand causes the location icon to pop up and become stuck on the taskbar. Obviously location has to be enabled. Anyone else seeing this behaviour.

    No I'm not seeing that. I only had 4 icons there so no expand option. I went and added location to it which then gave me the expand option. So after expanding it - it does not put the location icon on the taskbar for me.

    I do use quick launch on the taskbar on the left side near the start button. Don't know if that could change behavior.

    All these computer experts around here scared of a little ole Windows upgrade
    Hi there

    Running fine now as a VM and on 3 physical machines

    Other than the niggle of the long file name limitation which is a flaw in Windows itself rather than a defect with this update - all working perfectly.

    The only strange issue I had was with Networking (mind you when has Windows Networking ever worked 100% perfectly !!!) was when bringing up a W10 VM with the CU update --the VM connected to the Internet but killed all HOST internet communications !!!!! --Had to go into the VM configuration, reset the networking adapter card to default again and then it worked.

    No issues since.

    Seems the easiest and most seamless Windows upgrade / update yet -- but then I don't run any of these 3rd party "mickey Mouse" type applications such as registry cleaners, un-installers etc or any 3rd party Anti Virus software -- WD and Human Brain does all I need. !!!


    Cheers

    Yes it only seems to occur when the expand button is pressed really weird.
