Windows 10 Creators Update will become version 1704, set to be released in April 2017

New information has become available about the upcoming feature update for Windows 10. Currently known as Windows 10 version 1703 "Windows 10 Creators Update", it seems it will be released officially in April 2017. So, Windows 10 Creators Update may become version 1704.

According to what we know so far, Microsoft will be releasing the Windows 10 Creators Update this April. Earlier, Windows enthusiasts had observed several mentions of the name "version 1703" in build 14946. This led many to believe that this would be the final name of the upcoming release. But now Microsoft has changed the date of the release.

This is not the first time that Microsoft has changed version numbers in Insider Preview releases, the firm previously changed the Xbox’s Anniversary Update release number from 1607 to 1608 last year.

Update on March 21, 2017: Microsoft decided to use 1703 as the version number for Windows 10 Creators Update.

Windows 10 Creators Update is expected to bring a lot of changes to the stable branch of Windows 10. It is getting a new Game mode, a number of new features in Edge, Live Folders in the Start menu, new appearance options, a Clean Up PC feature and an updated Action Center pane.

That's it. Via MSPoweruser.

    I hope the Control Panel gets completely removed soon before Creators Update is released.

        Nothing is wrong with Control Panel, I wish there was a ability to find our WiFi passwords on the Settings app.

        When all else fails, I know I can go to Control Panel across all versions (7, 8.1, 10). Gawd forbid they ever take that away from users on multiple platforms.
        So, I agree, CP is well-loved.

      Who forced you to read it? At least it has some sense, because Creators Update IS RELEASED in April.
      Pointless comment.

    Installed Windows creators update today… but now have my clock display corrupted on the task bar using the Calibri 11-point font. For example, instead of displaying the time as 9:30, its displayed as 9[]30 using Calibri font.

    Not sure what other font may be affected…

    When I switch it back to windows default font (Segue), clock displays correctly.
