Windows 10 Update Assistant


To help keep all Windows 10 systems secure and provide the latest features and improvements, the Windows 10 Update Assistant downloads and starts the setup for Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607). The Windows 10 Update Assistant will be deployed to Windows 10 PCs that have not yet had the latest update installed.

Note This tool does not support Enterprise and Education editions. 

If you are an IT Professional looking for information about deferring upgrades, see Windows 10 servicing options.

You can run the tool yourself by going to the Windows 10 software download website and following the instructions on the site for installing Windows 10 version 1607.
