Some 14m computers upgraded to Windows 10, Microsoft’s newest operating system, after it was released on Wednesday 29 July.

Microsoft has described the demand for Windows 10 as “unprecedented” and said it is doing everything in its power to keep up with demand.

The company is targeting 1.5bn machines to install Windows 10 in the next three years.

Microsoft said that it is working 24-7 to continue the upgrade process and pointed out that if users don’t get an upgrade notification in their system tray they can still use the Get Windows 10 app on their Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 PC to reserve a free upgrade.
