Updating windows offline
So, is there any way to get Windows updates for your computer without it being connected to fast or no internet connection? Microsoft has a tool specifically built for this purpose and it’s known as the Media Creation Tool.
The concept of the Media Creation Tool is very simple – you can download a legitimate copy of Windows 10 with the latest update on another PC with internet connection and install it on your PC through a removable media like a DVD or a USB flash drive.
For example, on October 11th, Microsoft released Windows 10 build 14393.321, which Knowledge Base reference was KB3194798.
You can find the references when we publish a new article about a new update, or when you visit the Windows 10 Update History website.
Microsoft focused on the point that Windows 10 is not an OS but a service.It is 2017 now and Microsoft has released the Creators Update for Windows 10.The updates on Windows 10 are always released in phases, with the flagship laptops receiving it first followed by less capable devices.If there’s any other flash drive attached to the computer, you will get an option to choose your desired flash drive. Download the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft’s website. You will also need to accept the terms and conditions of the Media Creation Tool before progressing. After installation, you will be asked to either “Upgrade this PC now” or “Create installation media for another PC”. You will be given an option to choose the media for downloading the files.Choose the “Create installation media for another PC” and click “Next”. You will have to select the language, edition and architecture of the Windows 10 you want to download. If you use a USB flash drive, ensure that it has a capacity of at least 8 GB. Once finished, you will be greeted with a message – “Your USB Flash Drive is ready”.
It's important to note that the Microsoft Update Catalog doesn't list anything, instead it's a search page, where you must know exactly the update you want to download.
