Upgrading to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

Usually, when we update Windows 10, the wizard itself is in charge of everything as it was just before we started the upgrade process. However, it is possible that during the process of the same occur some problems that may cause some functions, features or applications not to function correctly after updating.

What to do after upgrading to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update?

The first thing you should check after upgrading to this new version of Windows is that your security applications are up and running . Already using third-party anti-virus software such as Windows Defender itself, we must open it and verify that all modules are active and working properly, as well as that we have the latest versions of the database and antivirus engine.

Once you have verified that your antivirus is working properly, the next thing is to check that all the programs and applications, at least those that you use more often, are correctly installed and working . Windows reserves the possibility of uninstalling an application in the event that it thinks that it can give problems in the update, and for that reason it is possible that, once you have the new version installed, you are missing some application.

Then the third step is to check Windows Update for updates to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update . Since its launch, Microsoft has already released some patches with which to fix some bugs in this operating system, so it is of vital importance to install them when you update to make sure that the system is as free of failures as possible. Also, since you are updating, it is also advisable to install the latest updates of your programs.

If you have all the applications installed and running, and your entire operating system works completely normal, the next thing you must do is remove the previous version of Windows 10 to be able to free up to 30 GB of space on your disk hard.

Fifth, it is recommended that update the drivers of your computer to the latest versions . It is true that Windows has a large number of default drivers to save you this task, but it is always advisable to update by hand the most critical drivers, such as the graphics, the chipset (if provided by the manufacturer) or the peripheral controllers. In addition to the drivers, if you use your computer to play games, you must also update the most important components, such as DirectX.
