Can’t wait to get your hands on Windows 10? Here’s how to skip the wait


Many have been stuck staring idly waiting for the prompt to upgrade their operating systems, as if one was watching paint dry. But not many know there is actually a way to bypass all that jazz and get Windows 10 without waiting, with the exception of downloading and installing it of course.

This run-around only works for those who want to upgrade their PCs; but not to those wanting a clean reformat.

Important notes:

  • Back up your data before doing any of this, just in case.
  • If any of you have an issue that states a “Something happened” error, fret not. Simply follow these instructions before trying again.
  • On Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 head over to – Control panel > Region and Language > Administrative (the tab) > Change System Locale, then set it to “English (United States)”.



Now just follow these simple steps:

  1. Ready to upgrade? Great! First click this page to get Microsoft’s own Media Creation Tool. Simply open the exe file, following the download.
  2. Upon launch, you’ll be prompted with a “upgrade this PC” option and click “Next”.
  3. Let the program do its thing, make a cup of coffee or continue whatever work you have going-on.
  4. Once in a while you’ll have to click the “Next” button, and also accept the standard T&Cs.
  5. Once you’re done, enjoy!
