Windows 10 was released Today for the world to download to update/upgrade :mariopower: from Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 to Windows 10, but sadly windows made

the update to be downloaded in batches some people like myself do not want to wait and wanted to download it NOW :luffylaugh: and I found a way via redmondpie, the steps are simple and easy I tested this on 3 devices running on  Windows 8.1 

  1. Be Sure you have already reserved your Windows 10 Update / Upgrade
  2. Go to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download ( Delete everything inside that folder )
  3. Go to Windows update settings, and change it to install updates automatically ( You can reach Windows update by click  Windows key + Q, Then type windows update then click on change settings on the left bar ) or by going to control panel and choosing Windows Update.
  4. Open/Run CMD in Administrator mode ( To get to CMD, Click on Windows key + Q, Then type CMD and right click and select run as Admin.
  5. Type in CMD this: wuauclt.exe /updatenow
  6. Wait a few minutes, then go to to Windows Update and click check for updates and then you will see Downloading  Windows 10.

Note : I am still downloading it, it's a slow download :sleepy:.
