Should I Update to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1/8/XP/Vista? Normally, we advise you to follow new updates each time when there is a big release. However, this time things do not go as we have expected. To be or not to be (to update to the Windows 10 or not), that’s a question. And the key answer to this question lies in whether the new Windows 10 is right for you. Here are the answers. You will get ideas.
We will update you accordingly if there is any new update about Windows 10.
Windows 10 has got the Windows 10 Technical Preview available through its Windows Insider Program, and it has so many bugs. The finial version, Windows 10, also gets lots of bugs. We've received reports from users about the Windows 10 update issues, including no sound after update, no Wi-Fi available, black screen or blue screen during update, graphics issues, Bluetooth not available, reboot loop, etc. Since we've dedicated to the solutions to fix these issues, you can check to see: top Windows 10 update issues and solutions to fix.
Other risks of updating Windows 10 are: the unexpected PC crashes can damage or even deleted your computer files, errors or failure during Windows 10 installation may ruin and spoil your computer and it won’t work.
If your experience with the current Windows OS, such as Windows 8.1, Windows 8, or Windows 7, is pretty good, there is absolutely no need to install Windows 10 right now.
Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 are not entirely successful for Microsoft to make tablets part of a continuum as it expected. Therefore, there must be more features and big changes in the next version Windows 10 which makes you in a different wonderful experience. See Windows 10 key features.
If you are using Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1, you can upgrade to Windows 10 for free for the first year, but after that period of time, you have to pay for it. Therefore, it’s much better to update to the Windows 10 within its limited free time.
Microsoft will gradually abandon the lower Windows OS, by stopping offering new updates and patches, such as the lower Windows 7, Windows XP, and Windows Vista. It’s normal. Therefore, it’s much better to upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7, Windows XP, and Windows Vista.
If you have decided to upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1/8/7/XP/Vista, you should pay attention to these cautions.
1. Backup everything on your computer. Since crashes, errors or failure of Windows 10 update could damage or delete your files, you’d better back up all the important data.
2. Install Windows 10 drivers using Driver Talent (formerly called DriveTheLife). Windows 10 update will delete the drivers of previous OS, so you need to install new drivers for Windows 10, which allow the new OS to communicate with hardware and devices.
Editor's Note: DriveTheLife has been updated to the new version called Driver Talent with a fresh new look.
3. Downgrade to your previous Windows OS if Windows 10 update fails. Ask experienced computer experts for help if there is any problem.
