I want to upgrade my Win 7 Starter ACER netbook to Win 10; using the free upgrade (I am adding extra memory and making sure at least 25GB of disk space is available).
I have made sure I have Windows auto update running but found that a number of updates were not activated including "Update for Windows 7 (KB3035583)" which has GWX.exe in it; this update now activated and shown as "Installation status: successful" However the Win 10 app icon does not show in my task bar, nor under Customize, as an option to show etc. A Windows search does not find GWX.exe.
Even after several reboots the icon is not available.
Note I have already registered my laptop for Win 10.
Any advice please?
