The “Get Windows 10” app is coming to your Domain join machines

Up until now, if your customer had a domain joined computer, the Windows 10 upgrade app did not ask your users to upgrade to Windows 10.  This will be changing soon and I want to make sure you are ready for the change.   We announced the change here, and we even documented how you can prevent this upgrade from impacting your customers here.  Your action is to make sure you have a plan for your customers Windows 10 deployments.  If you want the automatic upgrade, do nothing and the user will be prompted by our Windows 10 upgrade app.  If you have a schedule of your own, you can review the guidance in our knowledge base article on how to prevent the Windows 10 app from running on your clients machines. 

As I mentioned in this blog, If you would rather do a fresh install, as opposed to an in-place upgrade, you can now leverage your Windows 7 & Windows 8.x keys to activate Windows 10.  Keep in mind that the free Windows 10 upgrade expires July 29, 2016

Until next time,
