At its October Microsoft Event in NY this morning, Microsoft revealed the next update to Windows 10, the Creators Update, which will release in early 2017 for free. The feature is now live in the latest Fast ring build of the operating system and comes disabled by default.

Microsoft has been working extremely hard on the next upcoming update to its current flagship operating system, the Windows 10, ever since the announcement of previous year during the launch of Microsoft Surface Studio.

In response, Windows 10 is proactive in installing critical fixes and in rebooting to ensure that those fixes are actually active.
