Windows 10 was released last summer, and Microsoft is anxious to have its newest operating system become widely adopted. To that end, Windows 7 users may find that they are being prompted to upgrade to Windows 10 when visiting various websites. Users of College Windows computers should NOT accept the installation prompt for Windows 10 from websites or any other mechanisms.

At this time, DIIS is conducting testing and research to verify that software and systems commonly used at Ithaca College are compatible with the new operating system, as well as working to develop a formal plan for upgrading College computers.
