Force Windows 10 upgrade

Even though Windows 10 install app is telling you: “notify you when ready,” you can force Windows 7 or Windows 8 to start downloading the Windows 10 files (thanks to Reddit’s Windows 10 subreddit for helping us figure this out).

First go to “C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download” (replace C: with a different drive letter of your Windows) and delete all the files. This will clean Windows Update cash files.
