Why don’t I have the Get Windows 10 icon?
If you don’t see the Get Windows 10 app on your PC, it might be because:
- Your device isn’t up-to-date with at least Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1 Update.
- Windows Update is turned off or is not set to received updates automatically.
- You’ve blocked or uninstalled the necessary Windows Update functionality.
- Your device is not running genuine Windows.
Running Windows Update and installing any available updates will fix the first three issues. Need more help? Go to our Windows Community Forum.
PCs that we determine cannot run Windows 10 will not see the Get Windows 10 app before July 29, 2015. After July 29, 2015, we’ll enable the icon in the system tray. This is to help ensure that you can easily check your PC’s compatibility if you choose.
If your device is managed as part of a school or business network, please check with your IT administrator about upgrading to Windows 10.
If you don’t think any of the conditions listed above apply to you and you’re still not seeing the icon, you can also try running the solution below which will verify that your device meets all the prerequisites and will then turn on the Get Windows 10 app:
- Copy the following text and paste it into Notepad:
REG QUERY “HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\UpgradeExperienceIndicators” /v UpgEx | findstr UpgEx if “%errorlevel%” == “0” GOTO RunGWX reg add “HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Appraiser” /v UtcOnetimeSend /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f schtasks /run /TN “\Microsoft\Windows\Application Experience\Microsoft Compatibility Appraiser” :CompatCheckRunning schtasks /query /TN “\Microsoft\Windows\Application Experience\Microsoft Compatibility Appraiser” schtasks /query /TN “\Microsoft\Windows\Application Experience\Microsoft Compatibility Appraiser” | findstr Ready if NOT “%errorlevel%” == “0” ping localhost >nul &goto :CompatCheckRunning :RunGWX schtasks /run /TN “\Microsoft\Windows\Setup\gwx\refreshgwxconfig”
2. Save the file as “ReserveWin10.cmd” (within the quotes, name can be anything).
3. Open an elevated (admin) command prompt and run the file from the location you saved it to. For example:C:\Temp\ReserveWin10.cmd
The script will run until it has an answer!

If this is not working, you should edit the registry with below information to force the upgrade again!
“Locate the registry key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade]
It should exist, but if not, create it.
Create a new DWORD (32-bit) Value with Name = “AllowOSUpgrade” (without the quotes), and set the Value = 1 (0x00000001).
Once the registry key is modified, close and reopen the desktop Control Panel, go to Windows Update and check for updates. You should now be able to click the Get Started button to upgrade to Windows 10. Note: Windows 8.1 users must go to the desktop Control Panel, and not the modern Windows Update UI.”
