Re: windows 10 offer for those using accessability

Hi Chris,

The Windows 10 upgrade for those using assistive technology is available here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/accessibility/windows10upgrade

Also re the anniversary update, if you haven't got it yet, there are several reasons why that might be.  A post on How to Geek has a few answers: http://www.howtogeek.com/270846/why-your-pc-hasnt-received-the-latest-windows-update-yet-and-how-to-get-it/

The main reasons are likely:
- You only recently upgraded to Windows 10, or the previous big update
- You have updates set to deferred on your system
- Your hardware is a bit older - Microsoft is rolling the update out slower to some hardware configurations to keep an eye on any potential problems.

In any case, according to the article:

"Either head to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Learn More or just visit the Windows 10 update history web page. Click the “Get the Anniversary Update Now” link here and download the tool provided by Microsoft.

Run the Windows 10 Update Assistant and it will automatically download and install the Anniversary Update on your PC, even if it isn’t being offered through Windows Update at the moment."


Regards


Quentin.

Hi

I still have not had the anniversary update and have not found any details of the Windows  10 offer for people using accessibility.  I have a friend who would like to update to W10 so could you please provide a link to the offer details and installer download?

 

Cheers

Chris
