You can now install the Windows 10 Creators Update using Microsoft's Update Assistant

The Windows 10 Creators Update will begin rolling out to PCs on April 11, but if you just can't wait to install the update, you don't have to. Yesterday, Microsoft made it available for users to manually install on their systems using its Media Creation Tool.

Today, Microsoft's Jason Howard confirmed that it's also been added to the Windows 10 Update Assistant, offering an alternative path for those who are ready to upgrade early. Some users reported being able to upgrade using the Assistant yesterday, although it wasn't working for everyone.

The Windows 10 Update Assistant is available to download here. It's a simple tool that will check your current installed version of Windows 10, and offer you a direct path to install the Creators Update, stating that "the latest version is 15063".

Follow the steps to upgrade, and then once the process is complete, make sure to check for the latest cumulative updates for your PC by opening the Settings app, and going to Update & Security > Windows Update.
