Microsoft asked and received feedback from a large group of users. Seems like they listened. Windows 10 is the evidence they took complaints about Windows 8 very seriously.

Not a fan of waiting on queues? Neither are we. This is how to take the Windows 10 update into your hands. Don’t worry. This “How to guide” is pretty simple. Alright lets jump into how to skip the queue and install the Windows update now in three easy steps.

  1. Download Windows 10 installation file as an ISO image from the Microsoft’s website and select the Windows 10 edition you’d like to download.
  2. Pick a language for your Windows 10 installation.
  3. Select 32-bit or the 64-bit version of Windows 10. Seeing as its 2015, you will want to go with 64-bit.
  4. Windows will walk you through either burning a Windows 10 installation DVD or creating a bootable USB flash drive. Its your choice. That’s it. Your done.
