    I didn't upgrade Windows 10 on my HP Envy 8 Note prior to the end of the period during which it was given free from Microsoft. Now I'm surprised that it looks like it is available in Windows Update now. It doesn't say AE, I don't think, and I don't recall the number on it (sorry, it's updating the tablet now, although it's been on 1% for the upgrade for some time now - not the download, but applying the update). My question is, is this the AE? It's something like 5-6GB. I had to clear a lot of space and use a microSD card for it.

    Yes, it is 1607. Now that it's installed, I see that Windows Update is downloading it again. Why? 5-6GB over my network twice. Oh, wait, this is a "cumulative update for" 1607. Wow, it must be big. It's taking a long time.
