On 29th July when Microsoft came with their final version of the Windows, people were very excited to upgrade their PCs to the latest version of the Windows which was reserved for them officially by Microsoft. Statistics do say that there are over 40-50 upgrades going on per second which have made this upgrade as one of the biggest upgrade event so far. A few who had a blind trust on Window’s latest operating system just went on downloading it on the very first day and other are still waiting either for their notification for an upgrade or for other people to try it and then think to upgrade based on the reviews given by the other users. We recently came up with a review about the latest Windows 10 where we shared the differences between the Pro version and the basic version. And after some great response from the readers, we also received a lot of questions and doubts regarding the upgrade. And in this article we will be answering some very important questions in this article.
Q: I have reserved my Windows 10 upgrade but still I am not getting the notifications even after 10 days after its launch. What should I do?
A: Its one of the biggest online software upgrade event and there are chances that it may take a time to bring you the notifications, but rather than that there are also some other reasons which may have restricted you to get the transfer even after there was a notification for you. And the factor is the installations of the latest updates for your current version of Windows.
You will never get the notification for your upgrade if the latest updates are not installed on your 8/ 8.1 version or you don’t have the Service pack 1 on your Windows 7. And the reason for this is that those updates are the basic requirements for the upgrade.
The solution is simple, you need to get the latest updates installed on your PC. Just follow the simple steps to get it done:
- Go to Control Panel.
- Click on View by: Category.
- Go to System and Security > Windows Update > Check for Updates.
- Do check you have an internet connection and let the System Update itself.
Alternatively you can also use the Media Creation tool by downloading it from the official Microsoft Website.
Q: Microsoft wants Windows 7 and higher users to get Windows 10 free in the near future. Is this a good idea or not?
A: I am of two minds about this Windows 10 upgrade. On the one hand, Microsoft is making it available for free, so that makes this a good time to get it. On the other hand, it is quite a bit different from Windows 7, so there may be a cumbersome learning curve for many computer users.
If you have a computer running Windows 7 and it’s working well, there is no compelling reason to rush out and upgrade. It may be worth waiting to see how Windows 10 is received in the marketplace before pulling the trigger.
If you are using Windows 8.1, I think Windows 10 might be a good idea as it addresses some user frustrations with that version of the operating system.
Keep in mind that all new Windows computers being sold today have Windows 8.1 installed, and soon that will change to Windows 10. Depending on how long your computer keeps going, you may find yourself having to upgrade, like it or not.
Q: I had attempted to attach a short video clip to an email and when I sent it, it just kept working and never finished. I exited the program, but now every time I try to get out of Outlook I get a message that says, “There are unsent messages in your outbox. In order to send the message, Outlook needs to keep running. Do you want to exit without sending?” Is there any way I can get rid of this?

A: A video file, even a short one, could be difficult for your email system to handle. It’s possible that if you let Outlook run, the message will eventually go.
But it’s also possible that it’s just stuck.
To get rid of this error, you should only need to open your Outbox in Outlook, find the message and then delete it.
If you can’t delete the message using that method, you may have to take a few more steps as outlined in Microsoft KB article 2663435 here.

Then you can just email the link instead of the whole video file.
Services like YouTube offer the ability to restrict access to video so that they are not out in the public eye but can be viewed by having the direct link.
