    UPDATE 10/17/2017: How to get the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update - Windows 10 Forums

    Starting today, the Windows 10 Creators Update is rolling out to Windows 10 PCs across the world in phases, starting with newer machines first.

    A key part of our phased approach is to listen closely to all available feedback and make the appropriate product updates during the rollout. This allows us to provide high-quality experiences for the broadest set of users, while also continually increasing the quality and security of Windows 10. Just today we released a cumulative update based on insider and early adopter feedback that includes fixes for such issues as driver compatibility for connecting to specific printers. Please continue to give us feedback about your experience via the Feedback Hub app.

    For the optimal experience, we recommend you wait until Windows 10 is automatically offered to you on your device. But If you don’t want to wait, you can manually get the update now by following the steps below via the Software Download Site. This option is recommended for advanced users on devices running a licensed version of Windows 10.

    There are two ways to get the Windows 10 Creators Update

    1. Automatically get the update via the phased rollout

    As we announced previously, when your device becomes eligible for the Creators Update rollout, you’ll be prompted to make some important choices on your privacy settings before the Creators Update can install.



    Based on customer feedback you will have expanded options for when you complete the installation. You will have the ability to specify a time that is convenient for you, snooze pending updates for a few days, and expand the “active hours” time window during which you don’t want to be disturbed by an update.



    2. Manually update via the Software Download Site

    As an advanced user, you have two manual installation options. The recommended method is to utilize the Update Assistant. To do so, click the Update Now button on the Software Download Site. Alternatively, you can download and run the Media Creation Tool which will help you perform a clean installation, or reinstall Windows 10. During a manual update, the privacy settings experience will be shown to you as part of your first-run experience on the Creators Update.

    The Creators Update for Windows Phone will follow the same phased approach, with rollout scheduled to begin in late April. Note that update availability may vary by manufacturer, model, country or region, mobile operator or service provider, specific installed software, hardware limitations and other factors such as feedback from customers.

    We hope you enjoy the Windows 10 Creators Update and the many new features it brings. If you have feedback about your experience, please use the Feedback Hub app to share it with us. We’ll have more to share on the roll out of the Creators Update in the coming weeks. Thank you!

    The ISOs are available through MSDN now, including Enterprise, Home and Pro, Education and other localized versions. It does indeed require a subscription for access, but they are available to those who have one.

    Just got the update. It looks like Windows Update must first download and install a privacy setting update (KB4013214). Once you restart the PC it will prompt a box telling you to look over some privacy settings. When that's done you should be able to "check for updates" in Windows Update and the Creators Update should be there. Hope this helps some of you who are frantically pressing the update button without the Creators Update showing up - you need to restart the PC - or turn off/on - for that box to appear -- assuming you got the privacy update.

    I might have to use the ISO I have to get the job done.
