If you reserved a slot for Windows 10 upgrade, you are probably wondering why you have not gotten the upgrade notification yet. Here I will make four guesses why.
Where to Buy Original Windows OS
Its not your turn yet
Because of the great excitement around the new operating system, there are millions of users who like you reserved a Windows 10 upgrade. So, there is a wait-list and you will eventually get it when it gets to your turn.
According to Microsoft, Windows 10 upgrade notification will gradually be pushed to PCs that reserved the upgrade in the next couple of days and weeks. So, if you haven’t got it yet, it is still too early to worry.
Once its your turn to get Windows 10, your PC will automatically start downloading Windows 10 files in the background. It is only after all the files have been downloaded that you get the notification.
With Windows 10 being about 3GB in size, it will take awhile to completely download all the files, especially on a slow network.
Click on the icon of the Get Windows 10 app on your taskbar to check the status of your Windows 10 reservation. If the download have started, it will be a good idea to connect your PC or tablet to a superfast 4G LTE, HSPA+, or Wi-Fi network to make the download faster.
How long or how often you use your PC
Also since Windows 10 downloads in the background, your PC needs to be on and connected to the internet for the download to happen. So, if you don’t use your PC often enough for the Windows 10 files to completely download to your PC, your notification will take awhile.
Click on the icon of the Get Windows 10 app on your taskbar to check the status of your Windows 10 reservation. If the download have started, it will be a good idea to keep your PC or tablet on and connected to the web to make the download faster.
It is also possible that Microsoft is prioritising upgrade for hardware that are most compatible, while they work to extend compatibility on more hardware.
Now you know why you are yet to get the notification, though it is most likely the first one, don’t rule out the other three.
