Microsoft will let users manually download the Creators Update on April 5th
You can download the Creators Update a week early
For everyone else, the Creators Update is being pushed out on April 11th, first to newer PCs and onward to other devices over the course of a few months. Windows Phone users will have to wait until April 25th for Microsoft to start rolling out the update.
Microsoft is making an effort to ensure the update process allows for more customization options on the user end. "These include the ability to specify a time that is convenient for you, pause updates for a week, and expand the 'active hours' time window during which you don't want to be disturbed by an update," writes John Cable, the company's director of program management, in today's blog post. "If you're running a Windows 10 PC at work, check with your IT administrator for details regarding your organization's rollout plans."
The update is mainly focused on smaller, more art- and entertainment-focused features like a new settings optimization feature called Game Mode for Windows 10 PCs and a new 3D Paint app expected to integrate with Windows Mixed Reality-enabled headsets down the line.
