How to Upgrade to Windows 10

How to upgrade to Windows 10 you ask? and Why?

Well Windows 10 is the latest Windows Operating System released by Microsoft which addresses most of the issues with Windows 8 & 8.1. The redesigned start menu was not up to everyone’s taste. There are a large percentage of users who still uses Windows 7 due to the familiarity of the OS and its ease of use. Windows 10 brings the best of both worlds with all the modern features which you would expect from a modern day OS.

Undoubtedly, there would be a lot of questions and technical know-how’s from users who are interested in upgrading to Windows 10. I have already posted a video of this for Windows 8.1 upgrade to Windows 10. See below:

How to do an upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 10?

You will not be able to do an in-place upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 10. Also, XP upgrade is not eligible for the free upgrade which Microsoft was offering for the first year. Instead, you can take an intermediary step where first upgrade to Windows 7 from XP or Vista, and do an in-place upgrade to Windows 10. That works pretty well and it restored all the files and desktop apps and some apps where not compatible.

I hope this answers all your questions and doubts about the upgrade process. If you have questions, feel free to use the comment section.

You will not be able to upgrade from a 32 Bit OS to a 64 Bit OS. The only option is to do a “Clean Install”
