Microsoft Windows 10 free upgrade: the last roundup.

John A We’re all assuming that Microsoft will make installation media available in some way: probably an iso file that you can download and burn to DVD (as for the test version), and perhaps in a USB-friendly format. Note that if you have used the GWX app to reserve a copy of Windows 10, then you have given Windows Update permission to download the Windows 10 code in the background. In Windows 7, run Windows Update, click “Change settings” and select “Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them”.

If, for any reason I don’t like the upgrade to Windows 10, will I be able to restore my laptop back to the factory (Windows 8.1 operating system) condition? However, Windows 10 does not use a recovery partition – it “rebuilds the operating system in place using runtime system files” – so it may leave it intact. MPF In the old days, the Windows operating system was fixed when a version shipped, at least until Microsoft rolled up the security patches into Service Pack 1, or whatever.

In future, Windows Update will install both security patches and – in a break with tradition – extra features for as long as your device (display screen, desktop, laptop, tablet, phone, games console etc) keeps working. The drawback, for some people, is that you must keep auto-updating Windows 10. (See Windows 10: updates will be mandatory for home users.) If you don’t, your PC will become unsupported.
