    How to Update to Latest Version of Windows 10 using Windows 10 Update Assistant

    information   Information
    If you have an older version of Windows 10 installed, you can use the Windows 10 Update Assistant to directly update to the latest version of Windows 10 instead of slowly updating via Windows Update.

    The Windows 10 Update Assistant tool does not support Enterprise and Education editions.

    This tutorial will show you step by step on how to directly update to the latest version of Windows 10 using the Windows 10 Update Assistant.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to run the Windows 10 Update Assistant.

    Note   Note
    You can check which version of Windows 10 your device is currently running to see whether you have the latest version or not.

    For how, see: How to Find Windows 10 Version Number

    See also: Windows 10 release information - current branch version, build history

    If you have the latest version number of Windows 10 currently installed, then the Windows 10 Update Assistant will only show you Thank you for updating to the latest version of Windows 10.

    If you don't have the latest version number of Windows 10 currently installed, then the Windows 10 Update Assistant will show you Update to the latest version of Windows 10 with the option to Update Now.

    Tip   Tip
    For the those of you who are eager to get the Windows 10 Creators Update version 1703 (build 15063) right away, you will be able to initiate the update manually using the Windows 10 Update Assistant in this tutorial.

    Total time is under 1 hour and you may lose several items from the desktop. I lost the Icon for Solitaire but everything else was properly located. Also the Search box is now a Magnifying glass.

    can we guarantee sharing of update without other local pc on my lan, so we don't need to download same update for each pc?

    If you download the ISO file using the Media Creation Tool then, yes, you can guarantee sharing of the update and not need to download it more than once. It's about 4.4 GB.

    Is this the proper iso name?
    -Windows10_InsiderPreview_Client_x64_en-us_15063.iso

    What about if you use the upgrade assistant?
    How big is it to download the update?


    Is there a way to block the internet access for other pcs, so it is forced to use the downloaded update from one pc?

    ===
    I downloaded this
    Windows10_InsiderPreview_Client_x64_en-us_15063.iso

    and created a bootable usb and ran it within windows 10, and it seems to want to do a new installation rather than an update.

    Is this normal?

    You can use that one, yes. It is the same as the Media Creation Tool creates, build 15063 is the final build.

    What about if you use the upgrade assistant?
    How big is it to download the update?
    About the same download size, maybe 100-200 MB less.

    Not that I know of

    Yes. As long as you run setup.exe from within the existing Windows. One of the first questions you will get is what you want to keep, and the default answer is to keep everything.

    thanks.

    Just updated to creator edition.

    Not sure how to force using the local updates though.
    I already enable it in update settings, but not sure if it was using a local copy or downloading a new update..

    so I just cancelled and used the bootable usb instead.
