How to upgrade from pirated Windows to legitimate Windows 10.

Starting next year, the Windows 10 upgrade will be categorized as a “Recommended Update.” As Microsoft explains in a a blog post, “depending upon your Windows Update settings, this may cause the upgrade process to automatically initiate on your device.” Those running Windows 7 or 8.1 “will be clearly prompted to choose whether or not to continue,” Microsoft says. Microsoft’s efforts to entice users to upgrade to Windows 10 will soon see it automatically downloaded on to users computers without their knowledge. With over 110 million devices currently running the OS and OEM partners launching new devices, is getting aggressive about getting its OS to existing PC users running older Windows. is dropping its reserve and upgrade mechanism to favour automatic downloads as soon as you reserve your upgrades. Users will be able to decline the update, once the installer has started, or prevent the update from being downloaded by manually blocking it in Windows update.

But the propensity of users to simply hit “OK” or accept when faced with a prompt in the middle of doing something else, will likely see users just blindly hit OK and unknowingly installing Windows 10, preventing access to the computer while the instalment completes. Since most users update drivers and other Microsoft related services from Windows update, this will allow Redmond to reach out to even wider audience.

Myerson notes in his blog,”Microsoft will offer a one-click upgrade opportunity to get genuine Windows licenses from the Windows Store or through code purchased elsewhere.” Microsoft still doesn’t plan to offer free upgrade to users running pirated copy of Windows. Should the user decline the installation of Windows 10 after it has been downloaded the update will not be automatically deleted, meaning it will sit on a user’s computer taking up storage space. Windows 10, which is free when upgrading, had been installed on 75m computers by the end of August, accounting for 4.9% of desktop internet users according to data from web analytics firm StatCounter.

Still, Redmond really wants all Windows users to take the plunge. “We would encourage everyone to upgrade because Windows 10 is the best Windows ever—familiar, safer, faster, and full of innovations,” wrote Terry Myerson, Microsoft executive vice president. “Our aspiration is for customers to choose Windows, and to love Windows.” The latest OS adds things like support for Cortana and the new Microsoft Edge browser—the latter which just got a boost from this week’s Preview Build. Testers can now use Edge to cast video, photo, and audio content from the browser to any Miracast and DLNA-enable device on your network, showcasing YouTube clips, Facebook images, and Pandora music on a second screen. The Xbox beta app for Windows was also updated, with the ability to find and add Facebook friends on Xbox Live, as well as voice over recording functionality in Game DVR, and a searchable Store.
