Windows 10 is here!

For those of us who loathed Windows 8/8.1 you can now rejoice as Windows 10 is now available, and it welcomes back the Start Menu. Without getting into too much detail, you could say that it is a little like the good things from Windows 7 and the good things from Windows 8 combined. You can find more about the features on the Windows 10 website.


For the observant PC users, you may have noticed the ‘Get Windows 10’ icon that appeared in the task tray a few months back. This allows you to registered for your free download of Windows 10. The download is now available for Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 users for free so long as you download within the next 12 months.

If you have registered, the setup files will now begin to download in the background while your computer is running and prompt you when it is ready to install. If you would like to download and install Windows 10 a little bit quicker you can do so by downloading the Media Creation tool from here.

The Windows 10 installation upgrades your previous Windows version without removing your software and files, but sometimes things can go wrong so ensure you backup important files before leaping into Windows 10.
