Fortunately, it is easy to change the user agent so that the browser identifies your Windows PC as, say, an Android device.

Paint received a major upgrade today as part of the Windows 10 Creators update (Read Story Below).

Microsoft has created the Windows 10 ISO files page so that folks who don't have a Windows device, and therefore can't use the Media Creation Tool, can still get the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update ISO files.

"Since version 1511 was released in November 2015, Microsoft has released additional feature updates that build upon each other, delivering the newest features and more comprehensive security", the note stated.

Microsoft's Windows has been one of the platforms in which users can practically customize everything, and recent reports have revealed that the tech giant would like to take it a step further with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. It was detailed several months ago and members of the Insiders program have been able to try out the new features included in this update. Otherwise, you will have to wait for Windows Update to serve the Fall Creators Update to you - which, by the way, Microsoft recommends. But, strangely enough, it has decided that Windows users shouldn't be able to access it as well.

To download the Windows 10 Update Assistant, go to the https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 URL and click on the Update now button. All you have to do is download the tool from here, and follow the on-screen instructions. If they're running version 1511 or earlier, they should manually update their devices to the current version, which is the Windows 10 Creators Update rolled out earlier this year. These won't lead to monumental shifts in how you use Windows; they're simply quality-of-life improvements meant to refine Windows 10's base experience.

How can I tell if Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is installed?

The Fall Creators Update is the fourth major upgrade offered to the operating system, which first launched in 2015.

If Fall Creators Update is installed, your Version number will be 1709 and your Build number will be 16299.19 as shown below.
