    Windows 10 Discussion / Help Thread

    Sup people.

    Posting this if anyone requires help with the latest iteration of Windows, or just wants to chat about it

    Having put it on a few VM's, I'm loving it.

    Discuss!

    I have windows 7 and I still dont understand how I get the free upgrade. Do you understand the process more?

    Google is failing and forums are failing me too as people are acting all like "oh yeah, just go to windows registry site." and I'm all like "WTF IS THAT FUCK YOU!" and they be like "WTF man, I'm just trying to help!" and I be like "FUck you! That's like someone asking how you get to the nearest wal*mart and you tell them 'drive on the road' ass hole!" and they be like "man, your the ass hole man, I'm not helping you man." and I be all like "Thats fine, CAUSE YOU DIDNT ANYWAY!"

    yeah... all like that and stuff.

    Talking to Cortana is literally the only thing I have done with Windows 10 so far. I have not noticed any real change in performance, other than purely aesthetic ones (which is really the only reason that I upgraded (plus it was free xD)).

    Also Machete, I am sure this isn't the only way to know, but do you have a windows notification on the bottom right part of your taskbar that looks like this? That notification should walk you through the process of reserving and getting your copy of Windows 10. If not, then I am not sure how else to go about it, since that is how I did it. I am sure @Goshawk can probably answer your question better than me anyways.

    Just in case, make sure that your PC is up to date with all the latest important updates and optional updates because there are certain updates that prevent the Windows 10 icon from appearing.
    If your PC is up to date and you still do not see the icon go to this site and it will tell you how to make the icon appear. If this doesn't work then it might be because you have a certain copy of windows that is not allowed to reserve a free copy of windows 10, or it's just a general PC error and you should ask Goshawk like fluffy suggested.
    I take things too seriously.

    Updated and got it! Thanks guys! Why was that so hard to answer by everyone else in the windows community. Is that feature new? I asked about 4 or 5 months ago.

    It was a somewhat messy release. Glad to see you figured it out

    Now, should I switch to windows 10? I have windows 7 and it's fine for me but I'm wondering if 10 is smoother and stuff.

    I've found boot times to be faster / fps to be better / overall experience to be smoother than Windows 7. And well, it's free.

    Up to you
