Windows 10 Creators Update (1703) Available for Download!

The Windows 10 Creators Update has hit current branch but will not be available via Windows Update until April 11, 2017. What this means for customers/enthusiasts that want to start using this release of Windows 10 they need to go out to the Windows 10 download site to get the latest release. This installation is driven by the upgrade assistant where you can create media or perform the in-place upgrade to Windows 10 1703.

For enterprise customers and developers, the ISO media for Windows 10 1703 can be found on your volume licensing site or MSDN. If you are building Windows images for deployment be sure to update your ADK environment to 1703 as well hosted over in the hardware developer center. There has been some news about potential issues with the new ADK so review the following blog articles by MVP Mikael Nystrom:

  1. I downloaded and install windows 10 creator update, But I did not like it. After installation Microsoft shows downgrade option early after upgrading to Windows 10 and remove it after one month. I recently upgrade my windows 8.1 Professional operating system to windows 10 Professional being getting a license from ODosta Store
    But I did not like its overall structure. I think Its not Windows 10, Its version should be windows 6 as it has many faults.
    I tried to downgrade back to my existing win 8.1 os and I saw as Microsoft was giving me option to downgrade. I thought that I'll downgrade after two month But after two month when I tried again, Microsoft removed that option. Now what to do. I searched and found your post, Which is very helpful for me. Thanks for sharing these details here.
