For those having problems obtaining their own copy of Windows 10 via Windows Update can opt to manually install the upgrade via Microsoft’s Windows 10 Media Creation Tool.

Then, when you’re ready, if you have more than one computer, try upgrading to Windows 10 on one of them – and trying it out for a while, before installing in all of your PCs.

Windows 10 is the latest version of Microsoft’s operating system software, combining what it describes as the “best elements” of Windows 7 and Windows 8.

On this occasion, Microsoft has once again promised that all Lumias running Windows Phone 8.1 with the Denim software will eventually get upgraded to Windows 10.

Windows 10 looks to combine classic elements of Windows 7 that users love as well as offering the touch-based interface of Windows 8 for people using it on touch-enabled devices such as laptops, convertibles and tablets.

Your computer will automatically begin to download the new updates and get you to the new OS.

Microsoft has promised in 2014 that it aims to bring the update to all Windows 8 devices and it seems that it will just be a matter of time before it does.

Check out the list of 10 Lumia smartphones that Microsoft confirmed for Windows 10 upgrade.

Microsoft started rolling out Windows 10 earlier this week in 190 countries, including India.

Whatever Microsoft says though, it would be nice to give the user the choice from the start instead of setting it by default.

On the other hand, if you stick with Windows 10 for more than 30 days, you can still use the built-in recovery tool. A ninety day trial gives them a fairly long windows to evaluate if Windows 10 Enterprise is worth the investment.

Those who do upgrade during the free period will have the OS free forever, including all subsequent updates.
