Microsoft is gearing up for the Windows 10 Creators Update launch will deliver plenty of new features including 3D to everyone, game broadcasting, Microsoft Edge improvements and new privacy settings.

The Creators Update will also give customers more choice and control for installing updates, with customers experiencing fewer reboots and have new options, including a "snooze button," for scheduling when updates are installed, writes Michael Fortin. "Downloads will also have less impact on device performance while they're in progress."

The new privacy-centric functionality makes it easier to choose best of privacy and diagnostic data collection settings.

Microsoft also notes, that Windows 10 is running on 400M devices and growing.

With the Creators Update you will have several new options for scheduling the timing of when updates install. For example, you can specify exactly when you want an update to occur (including the ability to reschedule an update if your original choice ends up being less convenient than expected), or "hit the snooze button."

The "snooze" capability allows you to pause the update process completely for three days when you need uninterrupted time on your device.

"Active Hours" time widens, so Windows doesn't install an update at times when device is set to be in use.

A new icon added to Windows Update Settings page help to verify "at a glance," if the device is up to date.
