So you have finally upgraded to Windows 10, how does the future feel like ? Great i believe anyways there's something i figured out after i upgraded my Windows 8.1 to 10.

I discovered during the upgrade, Windows did alot and left alot without cleaning up its mess. 

First of all i had 43GB before the upgrade, after the upgrade i had 39.8GB which i wasn't pleased with so i clicked on DISK CLEAN.

How To Do Disk Clean Task ? Goto This PC, Right Click On Your Main Disk! Usually Disk (C:)


It took awhile but the result was too small so i clicked on CLEAN UP SYSTEM FILES, this took longer than expected.. See the result below!


From above screenshot, you'll notice Windows created a previous windows installation folder(which its folder is Windows.old) i guess just incase the upgrade fails it'll automagically revert to it's earlier version which i think is good but bad again coz for those who don't use System utilities like this would just wonder what the heck is Windows.old and why has their storage reduced!

Also Temporary Windows Installations Files was about 3.67GB, in total i'll be freeing up 22.6GB! isn't that awesome ?

So if you've upgraded don't hesitate to do a disk clean up.

WARNING: If you delete the previous windows files, if anything goes wrong with your current windows you won't be able to roll back to the previous installation.





Don't want to wait for Windows to push you a notification before downloading/upgrading to the New Windows 10 ? Then follow the direction below to skip the wait.

For about 3 weeks now, i've been seeing the icon "Get Windows 10" in my taskbar but i refused to take action because i am sometimes not the type of person that tries new softwares as soon as they arrive because you learn from the past. 

Remember when Apple iOS 8 came out ? everybody jumped on it few days later security bug was detected and people had to update again to 8.0.2 and so on till we got stuck to 8.4 which is the most recent update released June 30 - 2015. 

Anyways that's another story i'm not a storyteller, today i want to show you how i upgraded my Windows 8.1 to 10 within an hour of downloading from Microsoft directly.

Like i said earlier, I saw the notification to download the new windows 10 but unknowing to me it's just a step one of perhaps 10 steps before you finally get the upgrade.

After clicking on the Get Windows 10, Window popped up telling me to reserve my space, so i did and nothing happend, Then i clicked on it again i was told to "Chill" and that my Windows 10 is on the way(could take days or weeks).

I'm impatient so i found on CNET how to skip the waiting process. Here are the steps below.

STEP 1: Goto Microsoft Official Website by clicking here
STEP 2: Choose which bit your system runs with i.e 64bit or 32bit.
STEP 3: Click Download
STEP 4: Open the installer you just downloaded which is named MediaCreationToolx64 or MediaCreationToolx32 (depending on the bit you're installing)
STEP 5: Select the first option which instructs you to Upgrade This PC and the image below should be what you're seeing...



STEP 6: Go get yourself some coffee or better still if your PC is rugged you can continue doing your work while windows does its thing in the background.

Note: Try not to do much because Windows will always reboot at some point and if you're in the middle of something, Sorry might be the case.

Download Size for Windows 10 is 2699MB (2.7GB approx)

STEP 7: Welcome On Board! The Windows 10 Elites!
