For those of you who want to be one of the first to grab Windows 10 since it was released a few hours ago can follow a few simple steps. As it turns out the command to queue the update to Windows 10 is nothing specials as it is the same one used to install updates for Windows. This just means that if you have any updates pending, this command is going to install them first and then you will need to run the command again to download Windows 10. Here are the steps to force the check/download of Windows 10.
- Open the command prompt
- Type in ‘wuauclt.exe /updatenow’
- Press Enter
- Open Windows Update to see the Windows 10 gods look favorably down upon you and grant you Windows 10
