Software giant Microsoft is offering solutions and fixes to early bugs detected in its latest Windows 10 operating system after several users have reported issues on display driver projections, windows update and a particular issue about wi-fi Sense.
Microsoft also posted on its web site, a step-by-step procedure on how to upgrade to Windows 10. A Windows 10 icon can be found in the lower right side of the system tray, clicking on the icon will start the upgrade process.
If you don't see any Windows 10 icon, Microsoft is advising to run Windows Update and install any available required and recommended updates for your existing Windows 7 or Windows 8 PC. If you still don't see the icon, you can click this link to guide you on how to fix the problem.
From the Get Windows 10 app, click Reserve your free upgrade" in the app window, and provide your email information to confirm your reservation. Microsoft will then download Windows 10 to your device and notify you when the upgrade is ready. You can cancel your reservation anytime, said Microsoft.
After you have reserved, you are in the queue for your upgrade. Watch for your notification from the Get Windows 10 app to arrive in the coming days or weeks. At that point, you can upgrade immediately or pick a time that works for you.
You can also have the option to create a USB drive or DVD to download once and upgrade multiple PCs.
Microsoft added that the free Windows 10 upgrade will be available for PCs and tablets, while the free Windows 10 Mobile upgrade will be available for most phones starting later this year.
Users Are Uneasy of Wi-Fi Sense
Meanwhile, some users are feeling uneasy with Windows 10 Wi-Fi Sense features because it allows you to automatically connect your Windows 10 PC to your friends' Wi-Fi networks without knowing their passwords, reported KSL.com.
Wi-Fi Sense is a unique feature of Windows 10 that allows users to automatically log your contacts onto your Wi-Fi network even if you did not provide then your password. This feature removes the sometimes awkward question from your friends "asking for your Wi-Fi password" when they are visiting.
However, Microsoft insists Wi-Fi Sense is a safe feature because it does not share networks by default. Users still have to actively choose to share their Wi-Fi networks by activating the "Share network with my contact" box when logging in to your network.
