John Cable, Director of Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery, revealed that the Fall Creators Update is the fastest release of Windows 10 to reach 100 million devices and that it achieved higher customer satisfaction ratings compared to previous updates.

New reading experience for EPUB, PDF, and Reading View: We've overhauled the look and feel of the reading and Books experiences in Microsoft Edge, bringing a new, consistent, more powerful experience across all your documents, whether they're EPUB or PDF books, documents, or web pages in Reading View.

We're thrilled to be offering the Fall Creators Update to all our customers, and we expect commercial customers to have the same level of confidence based on quality from their own broad deployments.

Use Extensions when InPrivate: We've heard your feedback and have added the ability to load extensions when Microsoft Edge is in an InPrivate window.

Windows 10 users can also manually install the Fall Creators Update by heading to Microsoft's software download site and clicking Update Now.

Revised media with the latest security- and non-security updates included in 1709 will be made available to administrators through Windows Update (WU), Windows Update for Business (WUfB), Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and the Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC) the week of Jan. 22, Cable added. Today the company has introduced a long list of new features especially for its default web browser Microsoft Edge along with improvements to Settings, Camera App, Quiet Hours and more.

Microsoft expands the list of devices and hardware configurations after the initial phase before distribution enters full availability, the final rollout phase.

Microsoft released the Fall Creators Update on October 17, 2017 officially after months of testing on the Windows Insider channel. While announcing the update, Terry Myerson, Microsoft's Executive Vice President for Windows and Devices, had said that the free update will also include a new photo app and many tweaks to the overall design and usability of Windows 10.

For those with automatic updates enabled, Windows 10 will continue to provide the latest monthly security updates to help keep your information and your device protected.

Improved Library experience: With Improvements to the Library, users will now be able to see recommendations for new books. When you're reading a book, we now show a Books icon and the title, rather than the URI, for a clearer and less cluttered presentation. The upgrade will arrive like any other update, but may take a little longer to install.

Click on check for updates to run a manual check for updates. Only now has the upgrade been declared okay for business. Windows Update should pick up the Fall Creators Update automatically.

Autofill cards on web forms: Microsoft Edge can now save and automatically fill your card information on payment web forms.

That have-cake-and-eat-it-too attitude - Microsoft increasingly stresses that customers are in charge, even as it automatically feeds upgrades to them - has been almost as puzzling as the original process. You may still choose to always show the favorites bar if you wish, via a context menu on the favorites bar "Show bar", or via settings "Show the favorites bar".
