    Your Windows 10 Update May Actually Be Ready


    This morning (update Tuesday) I was checking my systems to launch the updates and as I always do, I checked the Windows 10 Update App and it said my update was 'almost' there.

    Well after all of today's updates were done, I went into the Windows 8 Update status in the Windows 8 Settings. It said there were no updates. But then I click on view and sure enough all the updates were done.

    But I noticed that there was a greyed-out entry for Windows 10 Pro Update. Out of curiosity, I clicked on the 'More Details' and up popped a screen saying it can only be installed from the desktop. So I clicked on it and up came the desktop Control Panel with Windows 10 Pro Upgrade ready for installation!!!!

    I checked this on three different machines, a Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 8.1 Pro and a Lenovo Tablet Windows 8.1 Home. All are now ready for updates even though the App says it's still coming.

    Well true, but for the general user who doesn't want to go through the hassle of creating a media stick, they can use the in-place upgrade if they follow the instructions in the video.

    I already used the stick to do a clean install, but the in-place upgrade for my Lenovo Yoga was clean and easy. No stick required.

    It does come out in waves, but some people are getting the message from the app that it's still coming. Instead if they go to the PC Settings, Update and Recovery, they'll see that it is greyed out. If they click on Details, it brings up the desktop Control Panel. And on 3 of my systems, they were all ready instead of still waiting.

    I used the Media Creation Tool and did not go through the hassle of creating a media stick. I clicked on "Upgrade this PC now" and off it went. Much easier than messing with Windows Update - especially for the average user.
