    upgrading to official Win 10 when released


    I have a desktop with Win 8.1 and I am planning to put on it Win 10 TP. When the official Win 10 is released, will I be able to just update the desktop with it without reinstalling all the applications? I presume so but I would like to verify, thank you.

    It's impossible to know for sure, but that seems to be the way it's progressing.

    Whether or not you SHOULD do that is a different story, since multiple upgrades tend to leave beta junk behind....

    Upgrades have always been iffy. Maybe you want to reconsider that. A clean install has a lot less gremlins.

    Follow the rules of Beta testing and NEVER put any Beta version of an OS on your PC, over the top of your main and legal OS.

    In most cases, there is NO reversing that move. Even Microsoft tells you NOT to do that.

    Be safe..... not sorry!

    The only safe way to go from one OS to a newer one, is to back up all your data and do a clean install of the new OS.

    Thanks for all the great answers. I will defer with the installation. Can't wait to get the official release!

    You can still test the preview builds. Put it into a virtual machine. That is really handy. Here is how.
