I spent some time three years ago making sure everyone had a simple guide for finding everything they would need for Windows 8 and you can find that here: https://theaverageguy.tv/2012/09/09/the-average-guys-windows-8-survival-guide/.  I thought it might be nice to make another one for Windows 10 and keep it up to date as well.  It’s a working document, growing and changing as time passes.  It can also be influenced by you.  Leave a comment here of your favorite Windows 10 resource, send me a link in twitter (https://twitter.com/jcollison), post it out to our Facebook group or send it to me in an email, jim@theAverageGuy.tv and will get it updated!

Waiting for the upgrade?  Here are some links you might want to check out!

Absolutely can’t wait? You have a couple of options to get your upgrade sooner:

  1 Visit a Microsoft Store for free upgrade services.
  2 Use the Media Creation Tool to install immediately on one or more devices (recommended for tech-savvy users only).
