      If the answer is already in some obvious place, I’d appreciate being directed to it. Otherwise, my question is…

      I currently have Version 1803, and have automatic updating turned off. I’ve seen that updating to Version 1809 is now recommended. How do I do it? That is, do I just do the basic Windows manual update, or is there something I need to know in order to update only to 1809 and not do something in addition that I may regret? Thanks.

      You could use “Check for updates” to see if you get it (after turning WU back on) or go to

      Use the Microsoft Creation Tool to put it on a USB stick and run setup.exe from the USB stick.

      Hope this helps

      Don't take yourself so seriously, no one else does 🙂
