Microsoft says the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update has reached full availability

Google Shares High Performing Solutions to Spectre and Meltdown

Microsoft has pushed out a new preview build of Windows 10 to fast ring testers containing quite a number of changes, including work on the operating system's do-not-disturb feature, and further tinkering with the Edge browser.

The update comes along with the Windows 10 build 17074 on the Fast ring. Until today, consumers have comprised the bulk of those running Windows 10 version 1709.

Microsoft expands the list of devices and hardware configurations after the initial phase before distribution enters full availability, the final rollout phase. Recent reports about "Meltdown" and "Spectre", a new class of critical vulnerabilities disclosed last week, underscore how rapidly the global security landscape is evolving. If you found this feature too flaky before, Microsoft is urging you to try it again in this new build.

The company spends over $1 billion every year on cyber safety and security-related research and development.

Revised media with the latest security- and non-security updates included in 1709 will be made available to administrators through Windows Update (WU), Windows Update for Business (WUfB), Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and the Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC) the week of January 22, Cable added.


Microsoft also touted the relatively quick adoption rate of the Fall Creators Update, which has now reached more than 100 million devices.

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". To enable automatic updates, go to Windows Update Advanced options Choose how updates are installed to make sure they are turned on for you. Users with Windows 7 or 8.1 product keys may still upgrade to Windows 10 for free.

I suggest that you create a full system backup before you install the update.

To ensure devices in enterprise environments are running the most current and secure version of Windows with the latest security updates, any device on Windows 10 Enterprise edition or Windows 10 Pro edition that is configured to receive updates automatically from Windows Update will be automatically offered Windows 10, version 1709 after January 18, 2018. If you haven't yet updated, simply click the Update Now button on the Software Download Site to manually update your device.
