    Announcement: When will I get the Windows 10 Anniversary Update?

    The Windows 10 Anniversary Update has been released starting on August 2nd.  It will automatically download and install when available. If you want to check for the update now, select the Start button, then select Settings > Update & security >Windows Update > Check for updates.

    Some Windows 10 editions have a defer upgrades setting that will prevent the update from installing immediately.  When deferring upgrades, it puts the device into the Current Branch for Business, which delays new feature updates from installing for four months.   To toggle this setting OFF, select the Start button, then select Settings > Update & security > Windows Update >Advanced options, and clear the checkbox for Defer upgrades.

    If you don’t want to wait for Windows Update to install the Anniversary Update, and you want to install it now, you can do so by going to Get Windows 10 and clicking Update now.

    After the Anniversary Update is installed, your PC will be running Windows 10 Version 1607. To see what version your PC is running, select the Start button, then select Settings > System >About.

Yesterday our engineering team published some updates for Surface Book and Surface Pro 4. These updates offer refinements to improve battery charging and thermal tuning, wireless and Bluetooth performance, and to the detach-reattach experience on Surface Book. We know some of you are still experiencing issues, including issues related to power management, and we are working to address those as quickly as possible. We’ll publish additional updates as soon as they are ready. In the meantime, the Surface customer forums and the Surface support site remain the best resources if you have questions about your Surface.
