How to install windows 10

  1. 1. How to Install Windows 10 on Your PC
  2. 2. Want to install Windows 10 on your own PC? I’ve got you covered with the instructions, although it’s just like installing any other version of Windows You should not install Windows 10 on your primary PC. Use a test computer or a virtual machine. Step 1: Join the Windows Insider program and download the Windows 10 ISO image Step 2: If you are installing on a regular PC, Burn it to an optical disk or create a bootable USB flash drive. Otherwise, just attach the ISO image using the virtual machine software of your choice. Step 3: Install it mostly by clicking the Next button. For posterity, here are all of the installation steps, although you could just remember the word “Next” and get through it fine.

  10. 10. If you’ve setup your account properly you’ll probably be asked to verify it in the middle. We excluded those steps from this article, but they are pretty simple. Now you’ll be asked how to setup the PC. Since we wanted to test everything as a new computer, we chose to set it up as a new PC instead, but you could copy all your settings from another computer if you wanted to.
  11. 11. Want to use OneDrive? It’s nicely integrated into Windows, so we just left it alone.
  12. 12. And now a colorful screen that tells us things are happening.
  13. 13. And finally, we are at the desktop! Now click that Start button. Click it. You know you want to
