How to upgrade from Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10 via Windows Update

Community Chronicle 25/01/15.

A new build of Windows 10 preview is available for download, Microsoft announced Friday morning. On January 21, Microsoft unveiled the Windows 10 platform worldwide and also announced that the new build would be available within a week, though not equipped with all features.After crashing our way through to the final boss battle of Crota’s End hard mode in a single night, my group of intrepid raiders – myself, Ash, Miffi, Baconsarnie, Commissioner_Dave and Geofduke – got stuck.

Bungie changed the rules to nullify all of the existing and legitimate tactics, while simultaneously taking away certain crutches that we’d relied on, making this a particularly challenging and frustrating final boss fight. The build will download automatically for Windows Insiders overnight, or you can get it now by going to PC Settings > Update and recovery > Preview builds and clicking the Check Now button. According to the blog by Windows, in order to gain access to the preview builds, you have to join the Windows Insider programme, which is free of cost.

If you need to start from the very beginning—in other words, you’ve never installed Windows 10 at all—check out our tutorial on how to install Windows 10 from scratch. The blog added that they are pushing out the Build 9926 out widely, flighting simultaneously to both ‘Fast’ and ‘Slow’ rings as well as available on ISOs. You can also obtain the ISO for a clean install or virtual machine download here. “Some of the new features that Joe demoed on Wednesday will be available for our Windows Insiders starting today with our newest build – 9926,” Aul wrote. “However, not everything you saw on Wednesday is included in this new build. As such, as per Thurrott, the apparent conclusion from Microsoft’s projected move is that “Windows RT is dead.” Windows RT OS was launched by Microsoft in 2012, together with the Windows 8 launch. Skipping a version number creates the perception that Windows 10 is a radical, not just an incremental improvement on Windows 7 and 8.1, according to Prophet: We’re trying to create one platform, one eco-system that unites as many of the devices from the small embedded Internet of Things, through tablets, through phones, through PCs and, ultimately, into the Xbox.

However, Windows RT soon became irrelevant because it suffered from significant performance and incompatibility issues with non-bundled desktop apps. In a nutshell, here’s what you should expect in the new 9926 build: Cortana: Microsoft’s digital assistant has been ported over from Windows Phone, and makes an appearance in Windows 10.

Windows 10 will ensure that desktops, mobiles, laptops, tablets, 2-in-1 devices will all run the same Windows 10 OS, which will be optimised based on the platform. Also really excited to see how DirectX 12 turns out and if it will be integrated into Windows 10 on the Xbox One properly.” Similarly, Eldave0 thought it “Sounds great. The core is the foundation of a computing environment, or “eco-system” that is open enough to allow Microsoft to introduce new hardware and software elements to its product range in future versions of Windows. We think that Cortana should interact with your Windows Phone, sending reminders to your desktop and taking over as a general search interface, to boot. They get a lot of [hassle] but MS are really doing it right at the moment.” With this being a free upgrade within the first year – though there was confusion about what exactly that meant – beeje13 thought this was a particularly clever move: So many people will be rushing to get the free update, and suddenly Microsoft have a windows 7 level of marketshare, with unification across all platforms and all the other things win10 brings.

From adding the logical moves within Windows 10, Microsoft then took a turn for the more adventurous and bizarre, with the pie in the sky vision for their HoloLens augmented reality headset. Rather than blocking out the rest of the world, as Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus will do, this will overlay interactive 3D graphics onto the world around you by way of projecting images onto the lenses of your headset.

Windows Holographic is a suite of Augmented Reality (AR) applications that run on a powerful, standalone computer housed in a set of AR glasses called HoloLens. The new Project Spartan browser added will allow users to annotate a webpage using a stylus or touch interface, click on any section of a webpage to type out a comment and then share this page with friends or co-workers. Tony Cawley was similarly sceptical of its plausibility in the near future, saying, ” That kind of tech, working properly, won’t exist in my lifetime sadly. The apps, which include the Office suite, use Microsoft’s cloud-based OneDrive for ubiquitous storage of documents, spreadsheets, powerpoint presentations, mail, photos, videos, maps, messaging and calendar.

Looks awesome, shame I’ll never see it.” And of course, then there’s the name, which The Lone Steven rightly stated “is a bit of a misleading name. I mean, it’s not really offering holograms.” Dragging us back to the here and now and the real issues which a number of developers are struggling with day in, day out, Microsoft and 343 Industries have opened up a new closed beta for Halo: The Master Chief Collection, in a bid to alleviate the matchmaking issues which continue to plague the online multiplayer game.

Bennibop felt that not enough was being made of the game’s issues, as he said, “Seems shocking that this has not had the negative news stories like some other games. It has been unplayable for lots of people since launch, Driveclub and Assassins Creed Unity were not anywhere near as broken as this and this beta is acknowledgement by 343 how bad it is.” Turning to Kennykazey again, he had a relatively level headed outlook, saying, “And let’s be reasonable, it’s a beta for a larger update, not the game. It means that everyone won’t have to download a couple gigabytes until it’s proven useful.” Finally, Starman snarkily remarked, “I think Halo 5 will be out by the time this is 100% working.” Though on the plus side, any fixes here should roll forward to Halo 5. IE will continue to ship with Windows for a time to ensure that some enterprise applications that are designed to work with IE continue to work as they should. It’s been relatively subdued on the achievements side of things this week, as people have been hammering away at games without too many trophies in sight.

Youles reminded me that I’d finished a run through the final Call of Duty: Ghosts Extinction map with him, Wick and Commisar_Dave, saving humanity in the process (I think), while Hornet1990 said that he’d finished a normal difficulty run through of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and The Swapper. Equipped with advanced sensors, pen input support, cameras and microphones, Surface Hub allows brainstorming teams (virtual or co-located) to create text and 3D drawings that can be manipulated and shared. Xbox integration with Windows 10 becomes possible with a new application that allows games being played on Xbox One to be streamed live to the linked computer. There were also some platinum trophy records to tally, as Lyts1985 staked a claim to Murdered: Soul Suspect, Tony Cawley did the same for Peggle 2 and Crazy_ Del got a little help from Camdaz to beat a flaky trophy or two and platinum The Crew. And finally, a big congratulations to Steelhead, whose gaming this week was curtailed by the arrival into this world of his second son, and not of the inFamous kind.

A inferior race has been busily tapping your latest trophies into his tables, and you can head over to page 2 to view the first trophy leaderboard of 2015. With an extended technical review period that has solicited feedback from millions of participating users, Microsoft has put in the hard-yards to know what it is that people want and have made the effort to give it to them. Windows XP and 7 currently account for around 74% of PC operating systems globally, while the later, supposedly improved Windows 8.x has languished at around 13%.
