In case you were wondering if the Windows 10 Creators Update is doing well during its slow rollout phase, Microsoft has today provided an update for you. According to the Redmond giant, the first few weeks of the Creators Update rollout phase has gone really well, and they've received lots of useful feedback from customers.
What's more, Microsoft says there are now "millions" of users running the Creators Update already, which means the update is already on a large amount of machines. Microsoft hasn't given us an exact number of people running the Creators Update, but somewhere in the "millions" is impressive nonetheless.
Microsoft has also detailed how it's currently choosing who gets the Creators Update first. Based on feedback, if users are reporting issues on a certain device model, Microsoft can "block" the Creators Update until that issue is resolved, whether that be via the hardware maker releasing driver updates, or Microsoft issuing patches.
Of course, if a user wants to bypass said block, they can manually install the Creators Update with the Microsoft-provided Software Download Tool. Keep in mind however that installing the Creators Update this way bypasses all the checks Microsoft receives to help determine whether a particular machine is good to go with the Creators Update.
Microsoft appears to be very pleased with the rollout of the Creators Update so far, with more devices scheduled to start receiving the update over the next several weeks and months. Starting today, the Creators Update for Mobile will begin its rollout too for eligible handsets, so stay tuned for that!
