Microsoft rolls out Windows 10 Creators Update: Here’s how to get it

Global software giant Microsoft has rolled out Windows 10 Creators Update to Windows 10 customers around the world. After installing this update, windows 10 users will have a superior experience of 3D. It promises to bring mixed reality to everyone and to enable every gamer to become broadcaster.
“Microsoft’s mission has always been to lead new innovations that let people create their own path and bring their dreams and aspirations to life,” said Vineet Durani, Country Head, Microsoft India.
According to Microsoft blog, here’s how you can get it.
1. Automatically get the update via the phased rollout
When your device becomes eligible for the Creators Update rollout, you’ll be prompted to make some important choices on your privacy settings before the Creators Update can install.
Based on customer feedback you will have expanded options for when you complete the installation. You will have the ability to specify a time that is convenient for you, snooze pending updates for a few days, and expand the “active hours” time window during which you don’t want to be disturbed by an update.
With the Creators Update you will have several new options for scheduling the timing of when updates install. For example, you can specify exactly when you want an update to occur (including the ability to reschedule an update if your original choice ends up being less convenient than expected), or “hit the snooze button.”
2. Manually update via the Software Download Site
As an advanced user, you have two manual installation options. The recommended method is to utilize the Update Assistant. To do so, click the Update Now button on the Software Download Site. Alternatively, you can download and run the Media Creation Tool which will help you perform a clean installation, or reinstall Windows 10. During a manual update, the privacy settings experience will be shown to you as part of your first-run experience on the Creators Update.
The same update will be rolled out for Windows Phone in a phased manner from late April. The update availability is likely to ‘vary by manufacturer, model, country or region, mobile operator or service provider, specific installed software, hardware limitations and other factors such as feedback from customers’.
