how to upgrade the latest Windows 10 version problem fix

If you could not upgrade your window 10 latest version and you got error again and again then you could fix it in easy steps. Windows 10 received a significant update (the Windows 10 Fall update) in November and there’s already been another released at the time of updating this article (1st December 2017). Still, a large proportion of Windows 10 devices have missed out because it’s not being rolled out automatically – you have to choose to upgrade.

It’s easy to find out which version you’re running and then upgrading to the most up to date version, which should read 16299.xx. If you’re running 10240 though, you’ve missed out.

To install the most up to date version of Windows 10, you can try troubleshooting using the Windows Update tool (see below), but we would recommend using the Media Creation Tool instead. Download it and use it to manually upgrade your PC to the latest version.

It’s important (and rather confusing) to note that the Ready to Install screen (pictured below) doesn’t actually mention upgrading to the latest version of Windows 10, or indeed, which version it will upgrade your system to at all. Instead it refers to whether it’s the Home or Business version you’re trying to install and as long as this is the version you’re running, you can hopefully be rest assured the newest build will be installed.

Also, make sure you’ve opted to keep the personal files and apps and click Install to keep your data, apps and the majority of your settings untouched. Now, when you hit install, it should start installing the most up-to-date version of the operating system.
