29th July 2015 is the official release date for Windows 10. For Windows 8.1 users this upgrade is currently free and will be made available in stages from this date. You will be notified that it’s available for your computer by a Windows icon in the system tray.
The update will not automatically install and we are advising that you do not choose to install it manually.
A number of assistive technology developers have warned that their software will not work with Windows 10.
Windows 8.1 will continue to run on your computer without the update.
If you have any questions or would like some more information please contact the Disability Service. Or check www.assistivetech.wordpress.stir.ac.uk for updates and reviews of the latest Windows 10 news and what it means for assistive technology at the University of Stirling.
