How to get the Windows 10 Anniversary Update

The first major update to Windows 10 – the Windows 10 Anniversary Update – is now available as a free download for anyone running Microsoft's latest operating system. While Microsoft is gradually rolling out the update to Windows 10 PCs through its automatic update program (starting with newer machines first), impatient users can also request the update manually.

The easiest way to do so is through Windows Update. To find this, open the start menu, select Settings, Updates & Security, and then Windows Update. When you're in the Windows Update pane, click Check for Updates. The Anniversary update is listed as "Feature update to Windows 10, version 1607".

Windows 10 Anniversary Update is a modest bundle of new features, including extension support in Edge, improved stylus functionality, and a more powerful Cortana. The Update will also pave the way for new functionality such as Xbox Play Anywhere, and web-based and in-app biometric authentication.
