How to get the Windows 10 Creators Update a week early

The Windows 10 Creators update adds a ton of new features to Microsoft’s OS – you can read all about them here – but waiting until April 11 for the final version kind of sucks for the impatient among us.

Thankfully, you can get your hands on it a bit earlier. Microsoft today announced you’ll be able to get it on April 5th using a new Update Assistant tool.

This is particularly handy considering Microsoft is planning a staggered roll-out, so you might actually be waiting a bit longer than the 11th anyway.

The company warns the tool is intended only for advanced users with a licensed version of Windows 10, so proceed at your own risk.
