  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    The Get Windows 10 app, which is being delivered as a Recommended (automatic) update to Windows 8.1 and an Optional update for Windows 7, does a compatibility check and should notify you if you have any devices, apps, or compatibility issues that will prevent a successful upgrade.

    If you want to check your own Windows 10 upgrade report, follow these steps. (Note that you must have installed KB3035583 for the Get Windows 10 app and its associated icon to be available. You'll find it in Windows Update, as a Recommended update for Windows 8.1 and an Optional update for Windows 7.)

    Update installs Get Windows 10 app in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 SP1

    Step 1: Right-click the Get Windows 10 icon (on the right side of the taskbar) and then click "Check your upgrade status."

    Step 2: In the Get Windows 10 app, click the hamburger menu, which looks like a stack of three lines and then click "Check your PC".

    Step 3: See the list of potential compatibility issues. The list includes separate categories for devices and apps.

    Hope the above information is helpful to you.

    Best Regards,
