Finally, the day is here. We have reached the paramount step to be able to get our hands on next big update for Windows 10. Microsoft should literally be buckling up for pushing out the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to over 350 million Windows 10 devices all over the world. As evident as it could be, Windows 10 Users throughout the planet are excited for upgrading their computers. In this post, we will walk you through the steps using which you can download the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
As per usual, Microsoft will roll out the update moderately in form of systematic waves. Users should see a notification for update when its available for respective region and timezone. You can manually check your system for update under Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update. If it is available for you, you should be able to download it.
Another conventional method to download the Anniversary Update is to use nifty little Media Creation Tool. You can use this tool for upgrading your PC to the next version of Windows 10 or create a bootable media device to install it fresh on any PC you want. When you choose to upgrade the existing version of Windows 10 on your computer, your apps, programs, files and settings will not be affected and are preserved when you migrate to the next version. On the contrary, upgrading Windows using bootable media device performs a clean install, removing your installed apps, programs and settings.
Once you select your preferred method, Windows 10 setup files will be downloaded from Microsoft servers and you will be able to install it thereafter. Whenever a new update of Windows 10 arrives, Media Creation Tool fetches the latest version. On the top of this, Microsoft should soon release the ISO files for Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607).
On a side note, sometimes you might face errors while trying to download and install the Anniversary Update such as insufficient space on your drive. To deal with this, you need to fix the issue by cleaning up the apps and files that you no longer use or use the Disk Cleanup utility to free up the space occupied by temporary system files. Additionally, you can choose to download the update in an attached external device with at least 14 GB space available.
Once you have ample amount of space available, you should be all set to sit back and enjoy your coffee while Windows 10 Anniversary Update is being downloaded.
