Although it’s recommended to wait until Windows Update offers the new feature update automatically to make sure you don’t run into problems, there are at least a couple of ways to upgrade manually using the Windows Update settings and Media Creation Tool.  If you have a device already running version 2004, the best way to install version 20H2 is using Windows Update. The reason is that both versions of Windows 10 are virtually the same, and you only need an enablement package to switch versions without reinstallation. On the other hand, if you have a computer with version 1909 or an older version, you can also use the Windows Update settings, but it might take a while until you receive the new version. If you want to force the upgrade, you can use the Microsoft Media Creation Tool to perform an in-place upgrade, which is virtually the same as using Windows Update or Update Assistant. During the process, your files, apps, and settings will not be affected. In this guide, you’ll learn the steps to upgrade version 2004, 1909, or an older version to the Windows 10 October 2020 Update.
