5 Useful Information on Microsoft Windows 10 Upgrade

By December 21, 2015Article

PCMAN – Reportedly, more than 75 million people have now upgraded to Windows 10, the most used Windows update service. However, some of the users may still have some questions about installations, product keys, downgrading, and more. Below are some of the useful information to minimize the confusions:

Download the Upgrade

Users can download the upgrade from the Download Windows 10 page, store the files, and install it whenever it is the most convenient for them. Microsoft provides a media creation tool, which allows the users to install the download file on a blank USB memory stick, or burn it into a DVD. This feature enables the user to download the file on one PC to upgrade a different PC. Since Windows 10 is continuously updated, it would be wise to download the upgrade at the time one has planned to use it. Users have until July 2016 to install the free upgrade.

Third-party Upgraders

One may not have access to a Microsoft store, thus resulting in independent specialist to installing their Windows 10 update. There is no restriction on who have the right to upgrade the operating system; however, one should always do data back up before upgrading their device. A good installer will make sure that non-Microsoft anti-malware software that might cause problems with the upgrade will be uninstalled, and guarantee that Windows 10 upgrade will be activated and run smoothly.

Product Key  

When the user took the free upgrade via Windows Update, the product key will most likely be YTMG3-N6DKC-DKB77-7M9GH-8HVX7 for the Home version, or VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T for Pro. The way Windows 10 upgrade works is it creates a hash number based on the user’s hardware and stores it against the user’s Microsoft Account (MSA) when being installed. Once it has done that, users are able to do a re-installation, and their PC will authenticate automatically. If the user is asked for a product key, they may click on “Skip” and it should be able to authenticate itself.

Files, Movies and Programs

Many users are worried that their files on the Windows 7 disk drive will be deleted or lost during the update. However, if they do an “in place” upgrade via Windows Update, everything should stay safely in their own place. Any missing files should be stored on the hard drive in a folder called “windows.old”. Nonetheless, it is always safer to backup your files to anticipate when things go wrong during the installation.

Downgrade

It’s quite common for users to have complications after they just upgraded their PC. If you need to do so, with Windows 10 upgrade, users can upgrade and downgrade as often as they like, with a 30 days time limit to do so. Simply run the Settings app, go to Update and Security, and click on Recovery.
