We've already explained a lot of the new features coming in the Windows 10 Creators update, but maybe you don't want to wait until April 11th. Starting today, the new Game Mode, Paint 3D and friendlier auto-update scheduling are easily obtainable before it's released through Windows Update. Just download Microsoft's Update Assistant located here, and it will begin the process of downloading and installing Windows 10's newest major addition.
