If you are using a Windows 7/8.1, you will notice a Windows flag icon in your system tray starting today. This is the “Get Windows 10″ reservation launcher.

To reserve the upgrade, you just need to click the button in the wizard that launches. This will prepare Windows Update for Windows 10 upgrade when it arrives on July 29. So you will need to do this on each PC you intend to upgrade to Windows 10.
