    Taking full control of Win 10 upgrades on 29th July ... ?


    Hello

    I have used the tray app to register for Win 10 upgrade on a number of PCs / laptops (Win 7 & Win 8).

    However I am now a bit concerned that come "D-Day", the app will automatically download the installation files (or at least a significant amount of them) on 29th July - but I would like to take complete control over the upgrades as some of my computers require some preparation & research prior to upgrade.

    Can someone clarify for me ?

    Thanks

    It will download the files but you get to choose when to install them.

    Thanks

    So if I want to hold off any Win 10 activity on a machine I would best cancelling the upgrade for that machine ?

    If so, and subsequently I then want to re-register to upgrade that machine, how would I do this ? With the same app or is there an alternative method ?

    You do not have to cancel, you will have one year from the 29th to install it.

    Sorry, should have made myself clearer.

    I don't want any form of automated downloading of Win 10 installation files to some of these machines, but would prefer to download large single installation manually & save to media (USB / DVD) sometime after 29th. How would I do this for the relevant machines ?

    From that tutorial said:
    If you cancel your reservation for a free upgrade to Windows 10 and change your mind later, you can always reserve again until July 29th 2016.
