Windows 10

The Windows 10 release is fast approaching, and it’s time to start thinking about the upgrade. Have a Windows 7/8/8.1 machine and thinking about upgrading to Windows 10? Even though this could be a relatively easy task for many users, it may not be as easy for everyone else. There are few things you want to keep in mind.

Here are some additional information

  • Yes, your files and programs will be kept after the upgrade
  • You won’t be prompted to enter a product key during the upgrade of Windows 7 or Windows 8 to Windows 10
  • Make sure to re-enable or re-install your antivirus software and other software you need
  • Make sure to go to the Settings app, Update & security, and check for new Windows and driver updates
