The “Windows 10 Update Assistant” is a very simple tool, and you can get it from the Microsoft support website. Once you double-click the file to start the process, you’ll get a message that reads: Click the Update Now button will trigger a system check, the download process begins, and then the installation starts. After the installation completes, which should take around 20 minutes, you’ll need to go through the out-of-box-experience (OOBE) to set your privacy settings and additional options.

If you can’t wait to get the Windows 10 Creators Update automatically through Windows Update when it becomes officially available on April 11th, you can try using the Windows 10 Update Assistant.  Although this is the first official method available outside the Windows Insider Program, it’s always recommended you make a full backup of your computer before proceeding. You can also use the following resources to learn more about the Creators Update:
