You may remember a few days ago that we published information on how to get the latest Windows 10 update before it was officially downloaded to your machine. The story is at http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/want-windows-10-creators-update-... if you need to refresh your memory.
Microsoft has now backtracked somewhat on its advice, and no longer recommends that you use the promoted shortcut to get the latest build. It's best, they say, to wait until your PC officially tells you that it's ready to be downloaded and installed, instead of fetching it directly yourself.
This is because of some instances where your PC, especially if it's a few years old, might contain devices which don't work with the new version of Windows 10. While the official updater checks for such instances, and won't offer you the upgrade until all the relevant shortcomings on your PC have been fixed, grabbing the update directly will bypass the checks.
So, unless you're prepared for possible "issues", as Microsoft likes to call them, best wait until your PC tells you that it's time for the Creators' Update.
