The Manual Method

If you are adamant that you want WIndows 10's Creators Update right now, you can use Microsoft's manual update utility to upgrade your system to the latest version of Windows 10.  

To use this method Windows 10 users can go to Microsoft's official "Download Windows 10" page to either download their official update utility or create new installation media for Windows 10's Fall Creators version.

Those who want to update their systems should click the "Update now" button to download Microsoft's Windows 10 Upgrade utility, whereas those who would prefer to do a clean install on their systems should use Microsoft's Installation Media creation tool. In this guide we will only cover the use of Microsoft's Update Utility. 

Users who create new installation media will be able to do a fresh install of Windows with Microsoft's Fall Creators Update pre-installed, though this will be a fresh install and will require a completely fresh start. Files will be wiped on your install drive using this method.

After downloading Microsoft's Windows 10 Upgrade utility users can use it to check if there are any new versions of Windows 10 available. The image below shows a PC with Windows 10 version 15053 (Creators) with an indication that a new version called 16299 (Fall Creators) is available. 

Clicking on the "Update Now" button will allow users to check if their PC meets Microsoft's requirements for Windows 10's Fall Creators Update, allowing Microsoft to prevent the update from installing on unsuitable systems.

When the update is installing users will be greeted with the following page, which shows how close the update is to completion. This will take some time, though thankfully your PC can still be used during this part of the update process. 

After this users will be told that they have half an hour to restart their systems, as otherwise, Windows 10 will do so automatically. Users can choose to "Restart Later", which differs the update to when they decide to reboot their system next.

Yeah, there is no option to enable or disable it on my system. It could be toggled when I enter a game but I need to check this.Quote

Yeah, it can be disabled, it has to be done using the game bar though. This should mean that it is turned on/off on a game by game basis.

I used Hearthstone and it was turned off by default.Quote
