How to Install Windows Anniversary Update for Windows 10 Manually?


The most awaited Windows anniversary update is rolling out. Not all Windows 10 PCs are getting it at a time. Many interesting features are introduced to Windows with this anniversary update. Taking from the UI to the added functionalities, the Windows 10 with this update is quite interesting to use.

 

If you cannot wait till it shows up in your regular update notifications, you can install the anniversary update manually. It is a simple process and need no advanced knowledge. I will walk you through the process step by step. Follow on.

 

Things you must remember before upgrading Windows 10

 

Windows 10’s anniversary update is the second major update that is released in the one year of its release. The first one was released in November 2015 with some minor updates and stability fixes. This update adds more features to the operating system and brings major changes to the user interface and functionality.

  • You should have a fully activated Windows 10 installed on your PC. If your Windows is not yet activated, check these possible solutions
  • Check if you have disabled the automatic updates. This will not show you pop-up notifications of any updates to be received.
  • The New Windows 10 after upgrading would be totally new with re-shuffled options. Only upgrade if you are okay to adapt the changes. If asked, I would suggest to upgrade.
  • All the features that are promised to bring to Windows 10 might not work on your PC due to hardware availability and incompatibility. So, do not expect the most the new features if yours is a older PC.
  • You may revert back to older version (10586) if you don’t like the anniversary update (version 14393). I always recommend to have the latest updates installed unless you face any software or hardware problems while working.
  • After the update is downloaded as shown in the Step 4, it might take up to 90 minutes to update the PC. If you are in some serious work and cannot afford that much time, better restart it later.
