    Hai,

    [h=1]The Windows 10 Creators update will launch on April 11th[/h]
    The Windows 10 Creators update will start rolling out to consumers on April 11th, finally bringing Windows 10 Game Mode to PC gamers as well support for additional mixed reality experiences and Beam streaming integration.

    It is expected that Microsoft will release the "Creators"/"Redstone 2" update in waves, which means that not everyone will be able to upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10 at the same time. This will prevent Microsoft from overloading their servers with large concurrent downloads and provide users with a smoother upgrade experience.

    The Creators update will add a lot of new features to Windows 10, from additional creativity tools for 3D content to gaming upgrades and the ability to "snooze" updates. Right now it is rumoured that Microsoft is also working on a new "Redstone 3" update for late 2017, which will add even more features to the platform.



    Today, I’m excited to share our latest update to Windows 10, the Creators Update, will begin to roll out on April 11. The Creators Update is designed to spark and unleash creativity, bringing 3D and mixed reality to everyone and enabling every gamer to be a broadcaster. Beyond creativity, it brings new features to Microsoft Edge, additional security capabilities and privacy tools, and so much more.

    Windows 10 version history - Wikipedi

    its just an update.. they are selling it with name "Creators"..
    it will be available for everyone.
    or if you are "insider" then possibly you are already using it..

    BTW update have good features.. it's good to see "universal Windows OS" aim finally coming into reality...

    Will Win 10 give a message asking whether or not I want to download the Creators Update, or will it start downloading straight away, and ask only when it is time to install?

    I have Win 10 Home Single Language version 1607 (OS Build 1433.953). The last time, when I had tried downloading Win 10 using the Media Creation Tool using the settings for Upgrade this PC, it had messed up by downloading some other version, and later during install, setup had said I need a new key to install this version (it didn't automatically take the UEFI key). So how can I be sure which version to download, especially if I want to create an ISO?

    Earlier, I had installed Kaspersky Total Security trial, which expired after 30 days. If I install the Creators Update, will my PC turn into a clean install in which I can install Kaspersky again? :D

    Download the Media Creation Tool and follow as I tell you below:

    Untick the "Use the recommended options for this PC"
    Continue Selecting the type of Windows 10 Version

    Hi, thanks for the reply. If I remember correctly, I had used the "Use the recommended options for this PC" option, and that's what had messed it up.

    In Control Panel - Clock, Language, and Region - Language, it shows the first language as "English (United States), and it cannot be removed. The other three languages are "English (United Kingdom)", Gujarati, and Hindi, all of which can be removed. So I guess that means my default or original language is English US.

    I opened the MS page on my Android mobile and got the link for the ISO, selecting language as "English" (the other option was English International). I haven't downloaded it yet, but now that you advise using the Media Creation Tool, maybe I'll do it that way. On the net, I found some people complaining that the Media Creation Tool had downloaded and created an ISO for version 1607. The download link I got through Android was clearly for the latest Creators Update.

    Will do the downloading and installing in the afternoon, and report back what happens. :)

    Clean install is recommended.. but you can upgrade with new update without loosing files and other data..

    or wait for new update, in Windows Updates < setting

    - - - Updated - - -

    or use "RUFUS", it's better.

    You can create new account and try to change language their..
    or
    right click on taskbar > setting (windows 10) > home > Time Region > Region & Language > Choose Country..
