Windows 10 Fall Creators Update reaches final rollout phase

Microsoft today released Windows 10 Build 17074 for PC to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring and Skip Ahead ring.

All compatible devices running Windows 10 should get the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update offered to them through Windows Update as of yesterday. This is the first build of 2018, and it comes with a lot of new features. Using the data Microsoft and its partners have obtained from testing and feedback on this initial wave of upgrades, the company has further optimised its software to provide a smooth experience for all.

The announcement came slightly short of three months after the October 17, 2017, debut of Fall Creators Update, better known to corporate customers as 1709 in Microsoft's yymm nomenclature.

Microsoft has made another bunch of improvements to the Edge browser, including an overhauled Hub view that displays more content, and is more intuitive to use. The company also claimed the update had the highest customer satisfaction ratings of all Windows 10 updates to date. The full availability milestone is the final rollout phase that Microsoft puts Windows releases through.

Microsoft overhauled labeling of the various stages in its Windows 10 servicing plan previous year, changing both the initial push and the subsequent delivery to enterprises - dubbed "Current Branch" and "Current Branch for Business", respectively - to "Semi-Annual Channel".

We're thrilled to be offering the Fall Creators Update to all our customers, and we expect commercial customers to have the same level of confidence based on quality from their own broad deployments. You no longer need to wait for our signal - deployment control and choice is yours.* IT admins can leverage Windows Analytics tools that help you plan, test and deploy Windows 10 to your organization, and help accelerate Windows 10 migration.

The update was released to home users in October past year, and after several months of testing and further patches, Microsoft has certified the major feature update as ready for release via a Windows update channel used by enterprise.

I suggest that you create a full system backup before you install the update. Lastly, ensuring your antivirus products are up-to-date (for example, Windows Defender is available in-box for free and updates automatically) and that you are backing up critical files to the cloud remain best practices.

Most Windows 10 users who don't have the Fall Creators Update will soon start to receive messages telling them to upgrade.
