Windows 10 Creators Update

If you are using Windows 10 on a newer PC, you may have noticed some new changes recently.  The Windows 10 Creators Update was released on April 11th and contains a series of updates and enhancements to the Windows 10 operating system.

What is it?

This update contains a series of user-based interface changes to the Windows operating system.  Most of the enhancements in the Windows 10 Creators Update are focused on 3D sketching, remixing and viewing, new gaming features, more expansive immersive headset support, better tab handling in Microsoft Edge, improvements to Cortana (Microsoft’s voice assistant), and several other privacy, security, and usability features.

 Newer Windows devices with touch-screen interfaces and VR headsets will likely get the most benefit from this operating system update.

To see a complete overview of the features, visit Microsoft’s blog post on Windows 10 Creators Update.  A short video describing the changes is also available on YouTube:

How do I get it?

This update will be automatically rolled out in a phased approach as a normal Windows update, starting with newer Windows 10 devices first, and then eventually pushed to everyone. You can manually download the update now, however, if you wish.  You can read more about getting the update at Microsoft’s blog.

How much does it cost?

The Windows 10 Creators Update is free for existing Windows 10 users.  Microsoft has previously made Windows 10 free for everyone, but that’s not the case now.  Windows 7 users have to pay to upgrade to Windows 10.

What impacts are there with Win2PDF or PDF?

There are no specific new features, but there were some changes needed for our installation program. We’ve updated our Win2PDF software to version 10.0.17 for full support and these are available now at our Win2PDF download page.

This is a free Win2PDF update for users of Win2PDF version 7 users and higher.  If you have any questions about this 10.0.17 update or observe any issues or problems, please let us know at support@win2pdf.com.

Since we first introduced Win2PDF on Windows NT over 16 years ago, we have been committed to supporting new Windows operating system releases as soon as they are released.
