How to get Windows 10 if it won't install

Windows 10 is finally out in the wild, but most users are finding it incredibly easy to download and then install the new OS.

Some PC owners, for one reason or another, haven't been enjoying the automatic update in all its glory and there's no need to fret if you're in this camp as it's very easy to get Windows 10 in your life right now.

Before anything else, you should check whether Windows Update has the ability to download and install update automatically. This takes a few simple steps:

  1. Open Windows Update by positioning the mouse pointer in the bottom right corner of the screen and then moving it up. After this click Settings > Change PC settings > Update and recovery.
  2. Next, click on "choose how updates get installed" and on the next page choose the relevant option under Important updates.
  3. From there choose "give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates" check box from under the Recommended updates section
  4. Under Microsoft Update then choose the "give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows" check box and click "Apply."

When you've done all that, launch the Command Prompt in Administrator mode and type in: wuauclt.exe/updatenow. With any luck your download should then begin and you'll be able to enjoy Windows 10.
