Free upgrade to Win 10 with this.
One of those things that only exist in higher dimensional space
this has been posted already, so stock will be very very limited
Is there anywhere that socks a version of windows that upgrades to Windows 10 that is not a wild goose chase? I don't mind paying a bit more than the fifteen odd pound often quoted. I can't seem to find copies anywhere!
You don't need Windows 8 to upgrade to 10. Just use the MS Windows 10 ISO creation tool to install windows 10 which is activated for free.

It will load and let you login but it not have an activation code. I know it was like that on my own machine.

Same here. I tried 3 stores and all sold out. Probably less then 1% of all Tesco stores have any copies left.

FYI win10 is probably the greatest spying tool ever created,

so if you value you privacy you`ve be warned.

R-click on the start button > Control Panel
Press start key, type "contr", it'll be there
Start > All Apps > Settings (touch-friendly control pane-of sorts)

If you spent "a week" looking for the control panel and still didn't find it, perhaps the problem isn't the operating system.

Well that's unfortunate for you as for me this is what I done yesterday and worked like a charm.

Haha thanks, there was meant to be an element of humour to the post... I do know what I am doing, it only took me 6 days really. (That was a joke also)
Yeah you buy 8, activate your new license and they'll offer you an upgrade to 10. Which is just as well because 8 did not play ball at all it's horrific.

They're not compulsory, they're automatically set to install by default. Easy to turn off in settings if you prefer no updates.

Big fan of Start8 and Start10 start menus. IMO the £3 is well worth it.
does this have 1 license or can it be used on more than one machine?
Removing OneDrive Placeholders and demolishing Windows Media Center have completely killed off windows 10 for me. Networking on windows 10 has also been much more flaky than W7.
This gives me hope I might still come across a copy in a Tesco somewhere

Goof luck, I've tried Wigan, Hindley, Warrington and Litherland, in all stores they all checked in the back and on computer but no stock available, although if I come across another tesco on my travels I'm sure I'll pop in and check anyway haha
Good luck finding one, went to 5 stores didnt find squat
Tesco Leyland & Chorley have none. Save your time.

A few weeks ago Tesco caused a flurry of excitement flogging off "W8.1" for £20.
Started in Scotland and I thought "No Chance of me getting one!", phoned round all the "Extra" stores in ever increasing circles and found a store with 4 in stock about 30 miles away!
It's sometimes worth a shot.
