UPDATE: I've been told that this also helps people who have had their windows 10 download not complete, or fail to install. If this happens to you, following the steps in this guide may help.

Windows 10 has launched today, but microsoft is rolling out the upgrade to different people at different times, most likely to avoid server overload.

But, if you don't want to wait for microsoft to start your download, you can force it to start manually by following the steps below:

1) Delete everything from your windows update folder.

This is usually 'C:/Windows/SoftwareDistribution/Download' and deleting this will give you a fresh start, incase something interferes with our method.

2) Open Windows Update.

Open windows update via the control panel or start menu but DON'T check for updates just yet!

3) Open Command Prompt as an administrator.

Search CMD, right click, "Run as Administrator" or right click on the start icon.

4)Type, but DON'T run "wuauclt.exe /updatenow" into the command prompt.

This will save you time, in the next step.

5) Click "Check for Updates" in Windows Update, and the quickly switch back to Command Prompt and press enter.

Windows update should now start downloading Windows 10.
