The operating system is an integral part and that has to be strong enough for the ultimate support to the applications you need. So, here are the checklists that you need for migrating from windows 7 to windows 10. Let’s begin with the transformation process and check out the things any organization needs to keep in mind.

 

Moving on, the following are some of the essentials that you need to be aware of while migrating to Windows 10.

  • The most important thing is to understand the requirements of windows 10 before migrating to it. Your system needs the latest version of OS and preferably it is windows 8.1.
  • Your 16-bit applications can prevent the upgrade of 64-bit windows 10. However, still, the goal of standardizing over 64-bit windows is a good idea while you have a plan for 16-bit applications too.
  • Also, think if you have turned on the User account control in windows 7 or windows 8? If your answer is “NO”, this might be the time to take a step and ensure the security of a system.
  • Then we have UEFI specifications too. A Unified Extensible Firmware Interface is important to set up your desktops on a low level for now. But later, it will also help you with 64-bit. So, if you were still wondering about shifting to UEFI, you should now move to it.
  • Ensure that the hardware is supportive of all the requirements and needs of windows 10. It includes the connection to other devices, such as printers and scanner, etc.
  • You can also use application compatibility tools for migration. And it will help you in knowing about the suitability of the application according to the environment.
