Visit the "new features" site at:

The update is free and will happen automatically on July 29th
- IF - you have reserved through the Windows update process.

Windows 10 will be released on July 29 as a free download for anyone running Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1; the free update will be available for a year.

The biggest change is the new Start menu, which completely replaces the Windows 8-style Start screen, as well as the ability to run so-called modern apps in windows on the desktop. Cortana, the voice-powered personal assistant, makes her debut here after an extended run on Windows Phone. Cortana takes over the search box to the right of the Start button after you complete a few quick setup steps. An Action Center, with notifications and buttons for common system tasks, appears on the right side. It completely replaces the now-defunct Charms menu. Windows 10 includes a new tablet mode designed to make operation easier on devices that lack a keyboard and mouse. This set of features has been changing rapidly in recent builds, especially on devices with smaller screens. As shown here, it expands the Start menu to a full screen, although the design is very different from the Windows 8.x Start screen.
