What is Windows Update assistant?

Should I download Windows 10 Update Assistant?

Windows 10 Update Assistant can help you configure Windows 10 Feature Update on your PC. Besides installing the updates, it will keep your system secure and provide the latest features and improvements. The program can be easily deployed to Windows 10 PCs that have not yet had the latest update installed.

Is Windows Update Assistant necessary?

The Windows 10 Update Assistant enables users to upgrade Windows 10 to the latest builds. Thus, you can update Windows to the latest version with that utility without waiting for an automatic update. However, the Update Assistant is hardly essential as the updates will eventually roll out to you without it.

How much time does Windows Update Assistant take?

This part of the update process can take up to 80 minutes to finish. Unfortunately, a clean Windows 10 installation of the latest update is somewhat faster. However, you don’t get to keep all your apps, files, and settings, as you do with the update.
