If you are running Windows 10 May 2020 Update and you run the media installation tool, it will upgrade your OS to Build 19041.450 and this is not a clean install. An in-place upgrade leaves user files alone, retains settings and preferences, and your installed apps and data remain unchanged.
This is also useful when you’re unable to apply the August 2020 cumulative updates from Windows Update. Media Creation Tool may also help you address issues with Start Menu, Action Center, and even Windows Update, which is exactly what we want when security patches installation fail.
If you want to keep your files, apps, and other data, head to the Microsoft’s website and click on ‘Download tool now’. Navigate to the location where you downloaded the tool and double-click on the setup.exe.
You’ll be asked to either ‘Upgrade this PC’ or ‘Create installation media’. Click on the first option, which should be selected by default, and click on ‘Next’. Once done, Media Creation Tool will check for updates and install Build 19041.450.
This process could take 10 to 15 minutes depending on your connection and hardware configuration.
