  1. OK, but I have strange occasion about this. My friend have pirate version of win 7 ultimate and he recieved this upgrade option and I with legal and genuine win 8.1. pro 64 haven’t, but recently had update KB 3035583

  2. Once I have downloaded and reserved my Win 10 upgrade — can I remove the app — or must I stare at it every friggin’ moment until July 29th??

  3. The W10 reservation procedure TWC refers to has not not worked for me (and many others) with a Windows 8.1 Tablet (with all updates and other conditions listed in the MS FAQ) —- nor did the various fixes I have tried, including what I believe may be the latest suggestion involving a Batch File download via DropBox and a Registry edit. So what do I do now? I want the Upgrade Assistant to confirm for certain that my Tablet and software are compatible and I want to reserve my copy so that it will be (I understand) downloaded in stages. How else can I do this, apart from the no-show taskbar icon and upgrade app?

  4. Recently had the update KB3035583 on my Windows 8.1 laptop but still can’t find the ‘Get Windows 10’ window. Clicking on Windows icon open the same apps window nd nthng new :-

  5. But, What about my files & folders, my bookmarks, my desktop icons, ms office & other softwares downloaded on my Win 7 Home Premium, win icon is appearing in my tray, its asking me to reserve this upgrade, I keep my laptop fully updated, do let me know what I need to do before I apply this upgrade ?????

  6. Your files & bookmarks will no be affected due to the upgrade. They will remain as they are Nevertheless, it might be a good idea to back your important files to another location.

  7. Thanks, actually this Win 7 Home Premium came pre-installed with my Dell Laptop, but, over the years, too many files, folders & softwares have taken lot of space on this Laptop, but, will take your advise & take backup of all files on Seagate External Hard Drive of around 2 TB. If anything goes wrong, there is nothing to loose, THANKS A LOT !!!!!
