Should I use Windows Update, Media Creation Tool, or Update Assistant to upgrade to Windows 10 1909?

Best answer: You should use the Windows Update to upgrade to Windows 10 version 1909 (October 2019 Update) to avoid problems and update quickly. If you use the Media Creation Tool or Update Assistant, then a full reinstallation of the OS will trigger, which will take more time and can cause more problems.

On the other hand, if you’re running the October 2018 Update, version 1809, or earlier, you can choose either option, because no matter the method a reinstallation of Windows 10 will be required. However, if you have been using the same installation for a long time, it’s best to upgrade using a clean installation of Windows 10.
