Microsoft have confirmed that their new operating system will be available for a FREE Download on 29th July 2015 (earlier than the expected Autumn date). If you own Windows 7, 8 or 8.1, you are entitled to the FREE download for the next year. Afterwards, you will have to purchase Windows 10.

You will then be notified when Windows 10 is available and can pick a time to install it.

JPC advise that you install all your Microsoft updates to get to these stages. There will be high demand on the day, and could be problems downloading. We recommend waiting a few weeks before installing so avoid any problems.

Please back up all your important data before attempting any of the above. JPC cannot take any responsibility for loss of data if attempting the Windows upgrade.
