Should you carry out a Windows 10 upgrade?

by | Apr 20, 2016 | Archived Articles

Windows 10 has been available for 9 months, and has become Microsoft’s most popular operating system release yet. So should you be making the move?

The short answer is ‘yes’ – and here are our top three reasons for making that recommendation.

1. Windows 7 is no longer supported

Loved by technical and non-technical users alike, Windows 7 has been the Windows operating system of choice for years – even after the release of its successor Windows 8. However, Microsoft withdrew mainstream support for Windows 7 in January 2015, with security patches and updates only available until 2020.

Upgrade to Windows 10 now to avoid these problems.

2. It’s free

Windows 10 is a free upgrade for any PCs currently running Windows 7 or 8. In fact, many of your PCs have probably already tried to convince users to download the free update already.

As a free upgrade, there is no capital investment required to make the move, and you get the very latest Microsoft software too.

3. Windows 10 allows your team to be more productive

Just like every release before it, Windows 10 is designed to be more secure and more feature rich, giving your workers new tools to be more productive. After a few weeks your team will wonder how they ever managed without multiple desktops, improved ‘snap’ functions or universal apps that run across desktop and mobile devices.

And for many, the return of the famous Start button is grounds enough for making the transition.

Although the upgrade to Windows 10 is relatively smooth and painless, we do recommend that you have professional assistance to help with the process. Choosing a technical partner like Complete I.T. to help carry out the upgrade will ensure that any technical issues are resolved quickly and that your team receive hands-on help to get started.
