It has been a full year since Microsoft released the Windows 10 operating system for everyone. The update to Windows 10 was offered as a free upgrade for all the users of Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1 computers. Now at the first anniversary of Windows 10, Microsoft has decided to release a major update to the Windows 10 operating system. This new anniversary update is being called the Redstone 1 Edition or the First Anniversary Edition. There are many ways of upgrading your Windows 10 system to this new Windows 10 anniversary edition –
1. Through Windows Automatic Updates
This is perhaps the easiest way to upgrade to Windows 10 Redstone Build 1607. All you have to do is turn on the automatic updates and stay connected online. When the updates are released, your Windows PC will download the update and install it. But for this to go smoothly, you should first install all the other Windows updates as soon as possible because once the Windows Build 1607 update is released Microsoft servers will be put under a lot of stress by all the users worldwide and your PC will get stuck on downloading the older updates. Another thing to do to prepare your PC for the update is to keep at least 5-6GB of the space free on the system disk drive – you can do this by removing unneeded programs from your PC.
2. Download Windows 10 Redstone 1 ISO from Techbench
If you want to install a fresh copy of Windows 10 Redstone, then the best and easiest way is to visit the Microsoft Techbench website and download a copy of the Windows 10 with all the latest updates. You can read more about this on : Downloading Windows 10 ISO from Techbench. You should use a download manager for downloading files from Techbench because the files are as large as 3.8 GB.
3. Download Windows 10 Redstone 1 ISO using Windows ISO Downloader
The Windows ISO Downloader is a third party tool that makes downloading ISO images from Microsoft servers very easy. It can help you download all the available variants of Windows 10, Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 to your PC. You can read more about this here : Easily Download Windows 10 ISO Images Legally.
