How Do I Cancel My Windows 10 Reservation?

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Windows 10

Windows 10 isn’t even available for download yet, but one reader is already nervous about her reservation.  Bev writes, “I’m somewhat leery about switching, so I tried to cancel. I right-clicked on the Windows 10 app, selected “check your upgrade status”, but when it took me to the window, nowhere on the page did it say “cancel your reservation.”

First Bev, let me try to talk you down off the ledge here. There’s really no reason to be leery about Windows 10. I’ve been running the technical preview and it should seem very familiar to both users of Windows 7 and Windows 8.

But if you really need to cancel, here’s how it’s done. Right click that little Windows symbol in the bottom right of your screen.


Choose Check your upgrade status.


A Window will open saying your upgrade is reserved. Click the little menu bar in the upper-left of the Window.


Then choose View Confirmation


A window will open saying that your upgrade is reserved. In the lower-right, you’ll see the option to click on “cancel upgrade.”

    Why would you want to cancel it. It’s really neato! I had to be an early adopter because my Windows 7 got corrupted but other than getting used to the slight differences it’s smaller, faster and oh so perdy!

    If you are running Quicken 15, you better think hard before installing Windows 10. I installed and then had to uninstall and go back to Windows 8.1 to open Quicken. After doing some research, there are many more who are having the same problem I had. Quicken just does NOT work in Windows 10. So check you applications before installing Windows 10 to make sure they will work after installing. BIG headache!!!!
