The official launch of the Creator’s update starts this week. But don’t worry if you don’t receive the update immediately, Microsoft will be slowly releasing it over time.
Windows 10 Creators Update
Probably the biggest patching news (outside of the Office zero day below) is the release of the next feature release to Windows 10 called the creator’s release. I’ll be personally calling it 1703 (the March 2017 feature release) to keep it straight from the 1607, 1511 and 1507 releases that came before it. While Microsoft is stating that this isn’t as big of a release as the Anniversary (1607) that came before it, like any major update there can be issues.
That said, I want to preface my posting of these links about issues with a caveat: Too often, the echo chamber of the Internet makes it seem like billions of people are having issues when it might be a mere few dozen. The hard part of assessing user problems is digging through the issues to determine what are real, endemic issues and what are corner cases.
So far I’ve seen several reports and blog posts of issues with Internet access, missing Power options and issues with Logitech webcams, especially the Brio line of webcams.
I like to also keep an eye on the Reddit forums to see what others are reporting on post install issues. If you have not already installed the Creators Update, I would still recommend holding back a bit and not jumping on installing it right away.
