UIT Recommendations for Microsoft Windows 10

Microsoft will be releasing Windows 10 to the general public as a free optional update on July 29th, 2015. Many users have already been prompted by their system, indicating they can sign up to receive the update when it is available.

UIT is recommending that staff and faculty do not update their University-provided computers to Windows 10 when it is initially available. UIT has been testing the beta version of Windows 10 and will begin testing with the production version after July 29th, 2015.

If you do upgrade or purchase a Windows 10 based system, please be aware that all services, applications and attached devices used at York University may not be Windows 10 compatible and you may have to downgrade to a previous version of the operating system.

When Microsoft releases Windows 10 into production, the UIT Supported Software page will be updated with additional information when available.

If you have further questions, please contact your local IT Support group.
