Some people are having the Windows 10 upgrade pushed to their computers without them actually accepting it, so what’s going on?
Microsoft are treating the Win 10 Upgrade as a recommended update for people who reserved a copy.
If you reserved a copy of Windows 10 and your Windows Updates are set to automatically download and install Recommended updates then Microsoft are taking that as a green light to install the upgrade – and if your computer is not ready that can be a big problem.
I thought I’d have a play with one of the new Windows 10 machines and let people know how it feels for a regular Win 7 user to be dropped into the deep end of Win 10.
Dave loves new tech (and retro tech and any kind of tech) – which is great because he enjoys keeping up with anything his clients might throw at him. I tend to prefer the comforts of familiar formats and my PC is still running Win 7. The new “tiles” that Win 8 and Win 10 use are all new to me, and I waited until Dave left the house so I could explore without too many helpful tips (he lives to help me with new tech :))
I’ve recently replaced the hard drives in my Toshiba test laptops with 120GB SSD drives. The speed of the SSD’s is fantastic, but the larger sized models are still a little pricey, so I’ve ended up with limited storage.
On the other hand I have a DVD drive that I never use.
Microsoft are offering Windows 10 as a free upgrade for anyone who’s currently using Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or Windows 8.1. The download will be available in Australia from 29th July 2015, but a lot of people are worried about whether it will be safe.
For the most part the answer is probably, maybe, with a few exceptions…
