"Get Windows 10" Icon

Hi, I am not seeing the Windows 10 icon show up on my computer. I have SP1 installed. All updates are installed. Am I missing an update for Windows 10? My computer is compatible for Windows 10. How do I get the icon to show up?

Do you have the GWX folder in System32?

Check Scheduled Tasks for Microsoft - Windows - Setup

Should be 2 folders, see if the tasks are there.

Okay. I found it. I do have GWX, but I don't know why it isn't showing up.
