A lot of people are being prompted on their Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 systems to reserve a free upgrade to Windows 10 which is suppose to be released July 29, 2015. We are suggesting to reserve this upgrade in case it is more complicated in getting the upgrade after it is released. You only have one year to get it free and hold on to it while the the bugs/glitches are worked out before installing it. Those that have not been prompted to reserve their upgrade can still get theirs. You ask how? By using a compatible PC at any time and clicking on the Get Windows 10 app or the Windows Update control panel. There’s no obligation and you can cancel your reservation at any time.
