Force upgrade to Windows 10

Are you in a position where the prompt to upgrade your Windows 7 or Windows 8 operating system to Windows 10 hasn’t shown? Perhaps you have reserved a copy but nothing has happened? Or have you bought a new system on Windows 8 but want to update to Windows 10 immediately? If you fall into any of these categories, this post is for you.

For the upgrade prompt to show a number of existing Windows Updates have to be installed – this allows for the automatic download and preperation of the upgrade in the background without disturbing you.

If you are in a position you don’t want to update the old system and want to install Windows 10 straight away – great news, it’s easy to do!


Click the link below and download either the 32-Bit or 64-Bit version of the Operating System based on whatever you use now. When provided with an option, select Upgrade this PC now.


This will then download the necessary files and perform the upgrade. Note that I always recommend doing a clean install of Windows for the best experience and performance, full details of that are on my blog post here.
