    How to get the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

    Beginning today at 10 a.m. P.T., the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update version 1709 build 16299.15 will start rolling out to Windows 10 PCs across the world in phases, starting with newer machines first.

    As with the Creators Update, the key to our phased approach is actively listening to all available feedback mechanisms and making the appropriate product updates during the rollout. This allows us to provide a high-quality experience for the broadest set of users at an accelerated rate, while also continually increasing the quality and security of Windows 10. This was our approach with the Creators Update released in April and user feedback on this approach was very positive.

    For the best experience, we recommend you wait until Windows 10 is automatically offered to your device. You don’t have to do anything to get the update; it will roll out automatically to you through Windows Update if you’ve chosen to have updates installed automatically on your device. Once the download is complete and the update is ready to install, we’ll check with you, so you can pick the right time to finish the installation and reboot. We do this so we can ensure the update does not disrupt you, and we use active hours to help suggest a good time.

    If you don’t want to wait for the update to roll out to you, you can manually check for updates on your personal PC using the steps below. This will only work if your device is eligible to get the Fall Creators Update as part of the initial roll out phase. Alternatively, you can manually get the update today via the Software Download Site. This option is only recommended for advanced users on devices running a licensed version of Windows 10. If you’re using a Windows 10 PC at work, you will need to check with your IT administrator for details on your organization’s specific plans to update.

    Ways to get the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

    1. To manually find out if your device is part of the first phase rollout, check for updates on the Windows Update settings page.

    How to Check for and Install Windows Update in Windows 10

    In the Search tab, type “Settings”. On the Settings page, navigate to Update & security > Windows Update

    On the Windows Update page, simply click Check for updates. This will also check if your device is up to date with the latest monthly security updates.

    If your device is part of the first phase of roll out, the feature update may begin downloading immediately to your PC. You can still use your PC as you normally would while the update downloads in the background.

    Once the download is complete you’ll be prompted to select the best time to complete installation so as not to disrupt what you are doing.

    If the update doesn’t begin downloading after you click “Check for Updates” on the Windows Update page, you’ll see a message stating “Your device is up to date.” This means your device has all the updates available for it based on your device’s eligibility at this time. At this point we recommend waiting until the Fall Creators Update is rolled out to your device automatically.

    2. Manually update for advanced users

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

    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. You’ll need a licensed version of Windows 10 to use this method to get the feature update. Alternatively, you can download and run the Media Creation Tool on the same site, which will help you perform a clean installation or reinstall of Windows 10.

    We hope you enjoy the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and the many new features it brings. Click here to learn about all the new features in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. If you have feedback about your experience, please use the Feedback Hub app to share it with us. We’ll share more on how we roll out the Fall Creators Update shortly!

    Fix Missing Apps Bug in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update:

    1. Repair or Reset the missing apps:
    • Open Settings, and select Apps.
    • On the Apps & features tab, find the name of the missing app. Click the app and select Advanced options (if available).
    • If a Repair option is available, click Repair. If this option is not available, or if Repair does not resolve the issue, you may also try the Reset option, though you might lose any app data that was saved.
    • Once the repair or reset is completed, the app should again appear in the app list and can be pinned to the Start Menu.

    2. Uninstall and reinstall the missing apps:

    3. Re-register the missing apps using PowerShell
    If you have a lot missing apps, advanced users can instead attempt to restore all of them at once using the following PowerShell commands. Note, however, that if Steps 1 and 2 were already attempted and did not restore your missing apps, this PowerShell solution will also likely not succeed.

    • In the Powershell window type the following commands. These steps may take a few minutes to complete.

      reg delete “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\TileDataModel\Migration\TileStore” /va /f

      get-appxpackage -packageType bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + "\appxmetadata\appxbundlemanifest.xml")}

      $bundlefamilies = (get-appxpackage -packagetype Bundle).packagefamilyname

      get-appxpackage -packagetype main |? {-not ($bundlefamilies -contains $_.packagefamilyname)} |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + "\appxmanifest.xml")}
    • Once the PowerShell commands are completed, the apps should appear in the app list, and can be pinned to the Start Menu.
