    Once we have clicked "Get Windows 10", a pop-up window will appear.
    In this window, we will learn how the free upgrade works. For instance, how to "Reserve", "Install", and of course "Enjoy". If we would like more information about this, we will note at the bottom of the window there are a series of 6 little dots.

    Each time we click over, we will see information and additional details.
    These panels will indicate what we can do with the new system, what the new features will be, and the addition of more games, more movies, more music, and more apps than Windows has ever had before. We can get to the next slide by either pressing one of the six dots or by clicking on of the arrows located at either side of the popup. These arrows will be blue and inside of a white box.

    So to get started, and reserve our Windows 10 upgrade today, we are going to need to click on "Reserve your free upgrade".
    This is a blue button, rectangular shaped, at the bottom of the last screen on the pop-up window we have previously opened. Let's now give this a single click.
