Windows 10 Now Available for Download and Free Upgrade

We told you earlier that Microsoft will release Windows 10 final RTM build to public on July 29, 2015 and now its available for download and free upgrade. People who are using genuine Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 in their computer devices, can upgrade to Windows 10 for free. Make sure your Windows is activated, also you'll have to upgrade within 1 year i.e. before July 28, 2016 to take benefit of this free upgrade offer.

Check out following articles to learn more about free upgrade offer and its limitations, etc:

If you have reserved Windows 10 upgrade using "Get Windows 10" app, you need to do nothing. Just sit back and wait until you see a new icon in Taskbar notification area asking you to install Windows 10 or schedule the installation at later time.


"Get Windows 10" app will automatically start downloading Windows 10 setup files as soon as they become available in your region and once the download completes, you'll see a notification prompt to install Windows 10 in your computer.

If you can't see the notification in your Windows 7 or 8.1, check out following article:

To know whether "Get Windows 10" app has started downloading Windows 10 in your system, open My Computer (or This PC) and go to C:\ drive. Now enable "Show hidden files and folders" option in Folder Options and if you see a hidden folder "$Windows.~BT" or "$Windows.~WS", it means you are already receiving Windows 10. If you don't see the folder, there is no need to worry, you'll start receiving the files very soon as Microsoft is releasing Windows 10 in phases.

Or you can direct download Windows 10 ISO files and upgrade your existing Windows version or create installation media using following official Windows 10 Media Creation Tool released by Microsoft:
