While many of you are likely Windows 10 Insiders, some of you will be experiencing Windows 10 for the first time.
You can upgrade to the final build of Windows 10 starting today!
#Win10Countdown was a success. Many of you shared stories, images, and excitement around Windows 10.
Here are some images you can share on social media (click to download):
Remember you can also share videos from Windows’ YouTube page!
This is truly an exciting time to be a #WinPhan.
If you don’t see the prompt to update yet…
Make sure your “Get Windows 10” Window look like this:
And then just keep waiting.
I got the prompt to update on my Surface Pro 3 at 11:52pm on July 28th, and had Windows 10 up and running on July 29th at 12:10am.
Here’s what the process looked like for me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXBNObLQBhA
Let the #WinPhan community know if your installation has started! Let’s celebrate this day together.
Update: if you still don’t have the notification to upgrade, you can force it to here: http://venturebeat.com/2015/07/28/how-to-force-windows-to-start-downloading-the-windows-10-update-files/
Update 2: a better method is to go to the Windows 10 download page and use the Microsoft tool to get the update manually (note: make sure you download the correct version of the downloader tool. In Windows 7, right click “Computer” and go to properties, in Windows 8.1, right click the start button and select “System” to see if your system’s OS is 32 bit or 64 bit). http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
Update 3: If you have a PC with an NVIDIA graphics card, be sure you have the most recent drivers available: http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/84889/en-us
