How to Manually Install Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Oyetoke Tobi - Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Microsoft has already rolled out the Anniversary Update to all eligible Windows 10 users. But because there are huge number of computers that needs the update, then they decided to roll it out slowly, so not every will get the Anniversary Update immediately.

This could even take some days for some users to finally receive the update through the Windows Update. But, in case you can’t wait anymore, there’s really a method to upgrade your Windows 10 to the Anniversary Update manually.

Upgrading your Windows 10 to the Windows 10 Anniversary Update manually is a very simple task. So here’s how to upgrade your computer to the Anniversary Update, even if you still haven’t receive it from Windows Update.

We’ve outlined two methods you can use to do this which are

Method 1 : Using the Media Creation Tool

So as I mentioned earlier, this is a very simple process you can carry out easily. You just have to create a bootable image, and then upgrade your system the same way you re-install or reset Windows. And of course, none of your files will be lost during this process, so don’t worry about your crucial files. So here’s what you need to do:

The first thing is to download the Media Creation tool from here, and then install it as you would install app normally.

Then open the Media Creation tool, select Upgrade this PC now, and then click on “Next”.



Then the download process will begin, so from there your computer will be upgraded manually. So you just have to follow the on-screen instructions, and you’ll be good to go.

The above guide is just one of the methods of installing the Anniversary Update manually only on a computer you’re currently using. But, in case you want to create a bootable media, and then install it on another computer, you can go and check this article:

Making use of this tool is actually easier than using the Media Creation tool; thus you might choose to use it. So here’s how to install the Anniversary Update with the Upgrade Assistant:

So the first thing is to download the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant from here.

Just open it, and then select Update now.



Then follow the on-screen instructions, and wait for the Anniversary Update to get installed on your computer.
