Following months of speculations, Microsoft has finally rolled out the Windows 10 upgrade to the public, which users are able to download now. As expected, the update boasts an array of brand new services, tools and a bunch of other additions, many of which have already been revealed.

The Windows 10 Creators Update brings in a slew of improvements to Windows 10 elements such as Edge, Cortana, a new Game Mode, a Night Light feature just to name a few. The latest update is slated to roll out in batches to 400 million users, meaning, some users might have to wait longer to get the update on their Windows 10 laptop or PC.

Windows 10 Creators Update: Here's How To Install

Those unwilling to wait can head straight to Microsoft Window's website and join Insider Preview program and experience Windows 10 Creators Update right off the bat. Users with licensed Windows 10 operating system, on the other hand, can manually download the Creators Update (version 1703) here via Update Assistant.

It's worth noting that Microsoft has decided to restrict its forceful approach by allowing users to control when the Windows 10 Creators Update will occur. Customers will be able to specify their preferred time for an update, pause it and as if that weren't enough, users can even stretch out the "active hours" time frame during which, he/she doesn't want to be interrupted by an update. Let's take a gander at what is included within the lauded Windows 10 Creators Update:

Windows 10 Creators Update Features

Tab Preview: With the Windows 10 Creators Update, users will get access to better tab management for the operating system's Edge browser, thanks to a new feature dubbed 'tab previews.' With this feature, users do not have to go through all tabs just to track down the one they're looking for. Aside from that, a user can 'set aside' tabs to be accessed later and thus avoid cluttering the browser with too many tabs.

Night Light: The recently rolled out update also brings in the new 'Night Light' feature that is quite similar to f.lux, according to Gadgets 360. This feature allows the PC display to shift colors in order to avoid straining a user's eye. There are improvements introduced to Windows Ink as well.

Cortana improvements: Cortana will now have a new feature that enables it to recommend reminders on the basis of promises a user makes in an email. It's worth noting that this feature, known as 'Suggested Reminders,' is currently supported for Outlook and Office 365 accounts only. Another feature dubbed as 'Pick up Where I Left Off' allows Cortana to remind a user of his/her most recent documents and Edge browser history from an earlier work session.

Paint 3D: With the Windows 10 Creators Update, anyone can create, share and experience in 3D and mixed reality. With the new Paint 3D, users will be able to create 3D objects from square one, change colors, stamp textures or simply turn a 2D picture in a 3D artwork.

Broadcast Live Via Beam

The new Creators Update comes with built-in game broadcasting that allows users to stream their gameplay with the help of the Game Bar. To start streaming on Beam-all, simply hit Windows+G, click Broadcast.

PIP (Picture-in-Picture) Mode

Dubbed as 'mini view,' the new feature lets users keep a tiny window on top of what he/she is doing.

Game Mode

The Game Mode that comes with the Windows 10 Creators Update gives prioritizes gaming when dishing out PC's resources. This keeps things such as Windows or Google Chrome update at bay.

More tweaks are likely to be unveiled as Windows 10 Creators Update gradually starts rolling out to more and more PCs across the globe. Have you received your Windows 10 Creators Update? Let us know in the comments section below!
