Do I need to upgrade?
This really is down to your personal preference. If you are happy with your current setup, then no, you may not need or want to upgrade. Be aware though that should you choose to upgrade after the 1st August 2016 you will be charged. A lot of people struggle to use Windows 8 so may like to upgrade to Windows 10, for if no other reason than to get the trusted start menu back!
How do I Get the Upgrade?
You cannot upgrade to Windows 10 until the 29th July. For now Microsoft would like you to reserve for the update (please follow the process below) and once Windows 10 is released it will automatically download onto your machine and then prompt to upgrade. Be aware this is a big download, about 3.6GB so if you are on a capped broadband service this may take you over your allowance.
If you would like to reserve to download you will need to click on the Windows icon that will be down the bottom right of the screen, with the system clock (known as the Taskbar)
You will then be presented with the Reserve process.
Click on the “Reserve your free upgrade” box, enter your email address – and your all done!
