Windows 10 after two years: Was the upgrade worth it? After a little more than two years, Microsoft has finally settled into a rhythm with its new, fast-paced development cadence for Windows 10. Check Settings System About to see full details about the current Windows 10 installation. What Microsoft's marketers are calling the Fall Creators Update (officially version 1709) begins arriving on desktop PCs today via Windows Update and will soon be available for download at all the usual places. The final build number for this release is 16299.
In addition, the Windows Update display now offers detailed information about the status of individual updates, so you don't have to wonder whether anything's happening in the background. One of my favorite classic Windows features, Volume Mixer, has finally been updated to include Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps, including Microsoft Edge and Groove Music. Remote Desktop settings, which were scattered in several locations in earlier versions, now get a single home: Settings System Remote Desktop. Microsoft turns Windows 10 Fall Creators Update focus to'stabilization' as of Build 16273
