Microsoft has opted to roll out the update for the newer devices first as compared to the old ones.
Microsoft has been gathering feedback of the users for some time now in order to provide high-quality update experience to the users. Its main target is the improvement of the Windows 10 security and quality. Lately, Microsoft has released an accumulative update that will fix the issues related to the driver compatibility of printer connectivity and there are more features in store, yet to come.
Although Microsoft has requested users to stay patient until it offers the update automatically for all the devices but those who can’t wait for they can manually get the update from the Software Download Site by following the below given steps. However, this offer is only recommended for the licensed Windows 10 holder of advanced devices, for the time being.

- Download the Automated update through the phased rollout
Microsoft will notify you through an update notification when your device will be authorized for the Creators Update. You will have to make some changes in your privacy settings before installing the Windows 10 Creators Update.
You’ll get a number of options for your ease once the installation is complete. You will be able to specify your convenient time, increase the “active hours” windows time so that no update disturbs you and snooze any updates in the pipeline for some days. Moreover, you will be able to choose the time in which you would be notified about an update or you could always click the snooze button.
- Get the updates from the Software Download Site
