How to install Windows 10

To install Windows 10 on your computer, please start by downloading the ISO image provided at the end of this text. Click on the green Download button, and once the download is complete, save it to a USB with enough storage capacity or burn it to a DVD.

If you want to install the system on a completely empty computer, the installation will jump directly from the disk. If you already have an OS installed, you must first access the computer BIOS (see which key to press depending on the manufacturer) and change its boot priority to start from the drive where you saved the ISO image. Of course, you will have to make a backup if you have data to save.

Run the ISO image and choose the language, time zone and currency and type of keyboard.
