Windows 10 Upgrade Reservation Time!

Posted on July 27, 2015 at 7:55 AM

If you see a little Windows icon show up in your notification area, it is legitimate! Windows 10 WILL BE A FREE UPGRADE!


Microsoft added this little "Windows 10 upgrade reservation" tool through a recent Windows update. It will allow you to confirm if you want to download and install Windows 10 when it is released on July 29.


If you are not comfortable letting the computer upgrade automatically, you can just ignore it and I'd be happy to help you through the upgrade process. The Windows 10 upgrade will be free for the first year, so we have plenty of time to let them iron out the wrinkles and do the upgrade later.

The Windows 10 Upgrade Reservation utility can be accessed by clicking the Windows 10 icon as seen above.
