    Windows 10 pro

    Will Windows 10 Creators Update delete installed programs/software ?

    Currently Win 10 Pro with all updates as of today.

    If I install Windows 10 Creators Update I know that i have the option to keep Files and Apps, but will I need to re-install all my programs/software ?

    If its going to delete them then its a no go, it will take far too long and just not worth it for an update

    An in place upgrade will retain all your 3rd party stuff. I was amazed just how good the upgrade path was, even my start menu was essentially unchanged. Everything worked.
