    Purchase new laptop, updated, but no windows 10


    G'day lads,

    I just just recently purchased a laptop with Windows 8.1 as below:

    Buy ASUS 15.6" F550DP-XX178H W8 Notebook | Read Reviews | Dick Smith Online Shopping

    System Spec

    Computer type:LaptopSystem Manufacturer/Model Number:ASUS/F550DP-XX178HOS:Windows 8.1CPU:AMD Dual Core A6-5350M APU (2.9GHz)Motherboard:AMD Dual Core A6-5350M APU (2.9GHz)Memory:1TB HDDGraphics Card(s):AMD Radeon HD 8670M (Sun-XT) 2GB Graphics

    I've taken steps to do all the Windows update to the point that there's no more updates required and I am seeking to get the Windows 10 icon so that I can update from Windows 8.1. Unfortunately, nothing seems to be popping up on the bottom right of my screen. Am I missing something?

    Kind regards,

    Check out this post from one of our Administrators. It might give you some hints as to what to do. Also, make sure your updates are set to receive "updates and other products from Microsoft".

    In addition to what f14 said: Windows update must be set to Automatic to get the notification.

    Win10 is still in preview, you won't get it until 29 July.

    You can test drive it if you want:

    I have auto updates disabled in Windows 8.1 & I have the windows icon in the system tray. It took a couple of days after manually installing the update for Windows 8.1 for x64-based Systems KB3042085 before the tray icon appeared.
