    This would only be if you've chosen to be on the Fast track for Technical Preview build updates, in PC Settings>Update and Recovery>Preview Builds.

    You can set it to Fast and Download the latest build if it makes it available to you this soon after install. You can do this on your own time or set the time at the link on the page there. I am Downloading it now and will Install it myself tomorrow when the Downloading button turns to Install.

    I'd recommend monitoring Windows Update by typing that its name in the Start Search box, open it to Check for Updates, install all Important and Optional to make sure you have needed drivers and patches.

    Thank you so much for the additional information and instructions. I truly appreciate it.

    Ravenwing. Congrats on your install. You do know that it will update it's build at 2am if you are not already on build 9879.
    Hi Charlie....what if my laptop is not on at 2:00a. I just got the first download installed, so I am likely due for the update, but, I don't leave my laptop on all night. Will it update when I start the laptop in the morning?
    Ravenwing No. I guess not. Spose that would be the way to stop that. I wish I would have thought about that a couple of nights ago:) Enjoy and good luck Charlie
