The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is here.

As in the past, Microsoft is slowly rolling out the update to Windows 10 devices over the coming weeks. Finally, Edge will open up and greet you with a "Welcome to the Fall Creators Update" message. Currently, the Fall Creators Update is being rolled out in phases, with some areas having it delivered via Windows Update before others.

Doom Nintendo Switch Release Date Announced in New Developer Video
As to more Bethesda games coming to the Switch, they only repeated that Skyrim and Wolfenstein will be arriving soon. If people want to slay demons or kill Nazis on Switch, they'll have to open their wallet as a sign of encouragement.

The Windows 10 update became available Tuesday. That changes with the availability of Windows Mixed Reality headsets. The problem stems from "patch diffing", in which hackers noting security fixes for Windows 10 have time to exploit those vulnerabilities on older versions of the OS that have not yet been updated.

How can I tell if Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is installed?

"Windows 10 was designed as a service, whereby feature updates are required a couple times a year". But, after that's done, you will be able to access the Windows 10 ISO files page and download the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update files directly from Microsoft's website. The Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant is a Microsoft program that checks if your computer has the hardware requirements necessary to install the latest feature update and then downloads and installs it for you. The base platform isn't all that taxing-you can get away with a modern CPU with integrated graphics-but Windows Mixed Reality Ultra requires more powerful processors and dedicated graphics. Samsung is also releasing one early next month. "While Windows 7 still has a almost 50% share on the desktop market at the time of this writing, Microsoft is known for introducing a number of structural security improvements and sometimes even ordinary bugfixes only to the most recent Windows platform". Otherwise, you will have to wait for Windows Update to serve the Fall Creators Update to you - which, by the way, Microsoft recommends.

If Fall Creators Update is installed, your Version number will be 1709 and your Build number will be 16299.19 as shown below.
