RUN the Media Creation Tool and use it to: Create an ISO image... save it to your desktop. This will be the latest version of the ISO image.
Right-click the ISO image and choose: MOUNT Open File Explorer and you will see a new drive letter. It will look like a DVD optical drive. Double click the new drive letter to open it. Find setup.exe and double click it to start the in-place upgrade.
Choose the Keep personal files and apps option.
After it's all done... to UNmount the ISO image: right click the new drive letter and choose: EJECT.
The only thing you will lose is some of your personalizations. Your programs and data will be intact.
