    There's only a few days left before I'm able to reserve an update, but is it possible to force the icon to show? I tried the "how-to-get-the-windows-10-upgrade-icon-if-its-missing" via cnet (Easy to find through google) . which is supposedly to be the most working method in getting the icon, however I got no luck using these method, I just got a license for the system (originally an ISO downloaded from the internet) and Windows accepted the product key without any problems, I've installed all the required updates / reinstalled but no luck. anyone have any idea how I'm able to fix this? thanks a bunch.

    Make sure you're activated and go validate.
    Hmm what's the website... I think it's microsoft.com/genuine/validate.aspx

    Hello.
    Many weeks ago since the notification in quick launch was showing upgrade notification, I reserved for the Windows 10 copy. But I am also not able to see any notification quick launch Icon now. So, I went into task scheduler but don't know it is working or not.:confused: Please help.
