    I wouldn't use any of them. I would use the Media Creation Tool:

    To answer your question "which one do I use?? "
    The current Win 10 version is 101586. So, it's obvious which one you'll pick..

    Bear in mind that you will be choosing to do the upgrade through Windows Update.

    There is another way to do the upgrade, and that is to go to Microsoft websites and download the most current iso file and do an in-place upgrade.
    There are 2 websites you can use to download the ISO file, one of which has already been mentioned to you.
    1. MCT ( Media Creation Tool ) : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

    2. TechBench : http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/techbench

    You might want to ask " which is better? Windows Update or MCT ?"
    Pundits probably will say the latter.
    I used both methods, one to each laptop. To me, there is no difference. They both installed ok and working fine.
