Windows 10 system requirements

Here’s what it takes to upgrade to Windows 10 on your PC or tablet:

  • Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor or SoC
  • RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) for 32-bit or 2 GB for 64-bit ( I recommend 4GB or more is better.)

Windows 10 is great peace of software it does a lot. You can download Windows 10 media creation tool, you can run the tool on the PC and you will have several options

  1. Upgrade to Windows 10
    • During this process it will ask you if you want keep your files and programs and do an upgrade to Windows 10. If you choose this option I wish you luck windows always find some thing that needs to be deleted or updated and at times it’s frustrating to resolve.
    • My answer is do a full install.
      • Please backup all your files, folder, pictures, videos and music to an external device.
      • Please note if you do a full install all programs you have installed will be deleted including files and folders.
  2. Create a ISO bootable USB drive
    • Really don’t need to choose this option unless you are doing multiple computers.
