I noticed when I was being helped to fix a major problem with my desktop PC, that my laptop (which I was using to post) was offered the Anniversary update which I readily accepted (I have no phobias about Microsoft trying to steal my soul!). The update took a while, but was successful with no apparent problems.

I was wondering why my desktop PC hasn't received this offer yet? And is there a way to force the update, or do I have to wait?

To elaborate on what FreeBooter said, there is no rhyme or reason to how this update has been issued. I got it over two weeks ago and people have been getting it here and there ever since, there does not seem to be a pattern.

Just to let you know: The Anniversary update installed perfectly with no issues that I can find on my laptop and on my desktop PC.  Thanks again for your help!

 According to Andre da Costa, an MVP on the answers.microsoft.com forums, the Anniversary Update was first rolled out to PCs with UEFI, TPM, and Windows Hello.  Last week I saw where MS has now added mobile devices, meaning tablets and smart phones running Windows 10.  Andre said it'll be "at least a couple of months" before everyone has it.  But as FreeBooter says, anyone with Windows 10 can go ahead and download & install it at any time.  I did that on 8/2, and it's worked just fine for me.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.
