    Windows 3.1 to Windows 10

    First off Davidparis - only has 5 posts and shows very little knowledge about windows...

    Running setup.exe from within your current OS - is how you upgrade the current OS...

    Booting from the media - is how you clean install the OS - overwriting your current OS..

    Since your are updating - then run the setup.exe from within your current OS

    I had this build, as I'm in the "insider program, and it boots as fast as any other version for me.

    I just did the update on my personal system yesterday and it was smooth with no problems to report, I still have 4 others to do and I fully expect them to update without issue as well.

    I clicked on the first link you provided, but did not get a "setup.exe" file. This is what I got: GetWindows10-sds_____________.exe.

    Is that the correct file to run?

    you need to "download tool now" from that link
    then run the "Mediacreationtool.exe"
    To download the ISO setup media..

    then you run the setup.exe within the ISO

    Hmm...still no "setup.exe" file with this approach. It gives me the option to "Upgrade this PC" or to create installation media. The first option downloads a new version of Windows and finally ends up at a license agreement. The second option leads to a "Windows.iso" file.

    The second option is what others are suggesting to you.
    Use that 2nd option and the ISO file will begin downloading to your computer.
    After that, go to the location where the downloaded ISO is, right click at it > click Mount > click Setup.exe.
    Installation will begin.
    You will be given a choice to keep your files, settings and most of the apps, or keep nothing.
    No product key is required.
    Activation is automatic.

    Windows 7 & 10

    I'm a bit confused, even with the explanations here. My laptop upgraded to the fall issue (took a little time), but my desktop shows there is no update or upgrade to be done. The message says I am updated as of 11/12/15. What am I missing?
