What's This?

Microsoft is still trying its best to make people switch to “Windows 10.” Even though a huge number of people around the world have upgraded their systems to the latest operating system, some Windows 7 and 8.1 users are not yet convinced.


Microsoft is now rolling out new updates for old operating systems Windows 7 and 8.1 so switching to Windows 10 becomes easier. Here are the specific updates:

  1. KB3112343 for Windows 7

  2. KB3112336 for Windows 8.1

Right now, Microsoft has termed the upgrade “optional,” but by early 2016, they will classify it as “recommended.” The update description says, “This update enables support for additional upgrade scenarios from Windows 7 [or 8.1] to Windows 10, and provides a smoother experience when you have to retry an operating system upgrade because of certain failure conditions. This update also improves the ability of Microsoft to monitor the quality of the upgrade experience.”

If you want to upgrade your machine, you can go to the “Windows Update” feature on your desktop, and select the update available for your system. Install the available update, then upgrade Windows 10. You can do this via listings or pop-up messages Microsoft is frequently sending out as reminders.

If you belong to the tech world, Microsoft has something in store for you as well. This new update supports Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2012 R2 (Release 2). Please note that these versions are not designed for common users or systems used at home. These are meant for organizations.

Hopefully, this step will finally convince Windows 7 and 8.1 users to at least give Windows 10 a try.
