Windows 10 was released just yesterday — follow these steps to avoid waiting in line if you still haven’t received your upgrade confirmation — but there’s already an update available for the new OS. In fact, Microsoft’s first Windows 10 update is a pretty massive one, and you should download it right away.

DON’T MISS: Windows 10: The first 5 things you need to do immediately after you install it

Sure, Windows 10 is designed to give you automatic updates as long as you’re connected to the Internet — though you can disable them if you so desire — so some users might have already received the 10240.16405.150725-1815.th1 update without lifting a finger.

However, people who have disabled automatic updates, or who haven’t received this new update automatically don’t have to wait another minute. Just follow the links below in our source section to grab this big update.

How big is “big?” The two update files weigh in at more than 1GB in size, so you may want to plug in your laptop so the battery doesn’t die.

Those of you who haven’t installed Windows 10 yet but are waiting in queue will probably receive this update automatically bundled with the OS. Just go to Control Panel to check whether you have the latest Windows Updates installed as soon as the Windows 10 installation is complete. You should be looking for these files: KB3074683 (X86) and KB3074683 (X64).
