On July 29th, 2015, the long awaited operating system of Microsoft, Windows 10 was released. However, a lot of people haven’t still got the opportunity of getting the taste of Windows 10 since they haven’t still received the update.

Today, I’ll let you know about a special trick that will help you to get the Windows 10 upgrade on your PC running Windows 7 or above. This trick will force Windows to start the download of Windows 10 update files no matter if you’re still in the pending list for the update.

So, here are the procedures:

  1. Firstly, go to “C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download“. (Here, ‘C:’ is the system drive where the current version of Windows is installed.) After going to the path given above, delete all the files and folders in that path. windows10_1
  2. Then, open ‘Windows Update’ either by going to the ‘Control Panel’ or by hitting the Windows key and typing ‘Windows Update’ and clicking on it.
  3. After that, we will have to start Command Prompt with administrator rights. To do so in Windows 8 or above, you can press ‘Windows key + X’ and click on ‘Command Prompt (Admin)’. If you are in Windows 7, you can go to Start Menu and open up ‘All Programs’ where you will find ‘Accessories’. There you will see ‘Command Prompt’ which should be right-clicked to get the options. Then, click on ‘Run as administrator’.
  4. Now, in Command Prompt, type (but don’t press ‘Enter’) ‘wuauclt.exe /updatenow‘ (without the inverted commas). That is the command which will enforce Windows to get the update through Windows Update.windows10_2
  5. After hitting that command, you can switch to Windows Update window and  click on ‘Check for updates’ on the left hand side of the window. Then you will see ‘Checking for updates….’ in that window.windows10_3
  6. Come back to Command Prompt and press ‘Enter’ to execute that command you had typed in step 4.windows10_4
  7. You will see Windows Update window displaying that it is downloading Windows 10. Then your PC is on the way to Windows 10 update.window10_5

Windows is a kind of of operating system which is created by Microsoft Corporation of United States of America (USA). It has launched different versions of Windows such as Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows 7 and now Microsoft Windows 8. Windows got its name to the fact that it runs each program, document or file in its own separate Window (a box or frame on the screen). Windows is an upgraded version of Microsoft’s older operating system Disk Operating System (DOS). Disk Operating System (DOS) lacks in many ways in supporting the Graphical User Interface (GUI) software. So in order to meet with the demands of Graphical User Interface (GUI) based software, Microsoft Corporation, USA launched Windows. Windows is not complete version of Operating System (OS) since it works on top of DOS. Different windows can be seen on the screen of the computer at a time, in which every window contains its own document or program. Users can easily swap between the programs just by clicking on the different windows with the help of mouse. Microsoft Windows series is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) based software program that makes our Personal Computer (PC) easy to use.

One of the important and distinguished feature of Windows is the Clipboard feature. Clipboard is a feature in Windows that lets copy material between dissimilar document types, making it easy and fast to copy or cut and paste data and information from a spreadsheet to a report or put a scanned picture of a house into a real state brochure. Moreover, Microsoft Windows provides the means for joining the capabilities of different application programs seamlessly. We can not only paste the portions of one document into another, but also we can utilize the more advanced document-linking features called Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) and Object Linking and Embedding (OLE to keep those elements live. It means that if there are modifications in the source document, the results will also be modified in the secondary document which contains the pasted data.
