Has the free Window 10 download been updated?

Recommended Posts


I installed Windows 10 on my desktop about a month ago. All went well except on the last of a series or reboots. All the elements of my desktop, the background, icons, start button, task bar, etc. kept disappearing and reappearing at random and I couldn't select anything and a right click had no effect. My keyboard worked and a Ctrl + Alt + Del would get me to the task manager. I let this go on for over 2 hours thinking that Windows was installing various features and they were responsible for the disappearing/reappearing act. I was able to revert to my Windows 7 configuration successfully.

So I'm curious to know, if that was normal. Also, if I download and install Windows 10 again, will it be the same version or will it be an updated version?
