Despite the hype and anticipation which preceded it, it appears that the latest Windows Creators Update is off to a bad start. While it may not affect the mainstream users directly, it appears that people who install the updates manually (read: advanced users) are reportedly getting issues.
Unsurprisingly, Microsoft is recommending users to wait for the final release that is available through Windows Update itself. This is to iron out any kinks in the Creator’s update before it rolls out. According to an official statement,
We continue to recommend (unless you’re an advanced user who is prepared to work through some issues) that you wait until the Windows 10 Creators Update is automatically offered to you.
Bugs and Instability Issues
Microsoft for its part has acknowledged the presence of bugs and instability issues (such as connectivity with Bluetooth LE devices), citing it as the reason why the update is taking longer than usual to reach most users.
While newer systems are already getting updated for the most part (starting with the Surface lineup), the older users are flocking to install the update by themselves on their PCs, which quite often is leading to bricked systems.
How to Fix
Not all hope is lost for users who are in a limbo; those who face these issues can navigate to the Start Menu and choose ‘Update & security’ under Settings. The recovery link will help you roll back to the previous version as long as you haven’t cleared the storage used by the feature or have it turned off by default.
The update, which was made available weeks back is available on just 10% of all Windows 10 computers worldwide, a number which is slowly but surely growing. A majority of Windows 10 users are likely to wait and get the stable build instead of jumping the gun.
