    Hi,

    I've come across posts where people who have installed the kb3035583 update, but the Get Windows 10 app icon is not showing up in their taskbar.

    However, my problem is different. I have not received the kb3035583 update, and it is not showing up in Windows Update either. I haven't hid or uninstall this update in the past. Anyone else run into this problem and have a solution? I'm on Win 7 sp1.

    Maybe following the link in below article may help to answer your question.

    Windows 10 is launching July 29 | Windows Central

    (And do not worry it still takes several weeks before the update rolls out.)

    Yeah, mine isn't showing up either. My laptop was bought brand new from from BestBuy with 8.1 installed on it. I don't see why it's not showing up. I have all the updates and the GWX thing.

    Try this manual method to install KB3035583 after removing the existing one. It worked for me. Apparently many are having problems with the Win10 upgrade icon.



    1. Uninstalled KB3035583 and restarted PC then ran Windows Update but found no update

    2. Download kb3035583 x86 or x64 cab file below

    http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/...7a412e41ee.cab

    http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/...00447ad302.cab

    3. Copy cab file to C:\temp

    4. Open command prompt with elevated

    5. Copy and paste x86 or x64 DISM command below then press Enter

    DISM /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:c:\temp\windows8.1-kb3035583-x86_dc717b43d95c7fd7c12fee2f13e0b17a412e41ee.cab

    DISM /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:c:\temp\windows8.1-kb3035583-x64_569671257f46c76e5f5d2f53b1c35500447ad302.cab

    6. After the cab file installed the Windows 10 icon popped up on my taskbar.

    It said operation completed successfully, yet nothing happened. :(
    I already tried using ReserveWindows10.cmd, and that didn't work either. Neither did going into Task Scheduler and running GWX or going into C:\Windows\System32\GWX and running GWX.exe as admin. Nothing. Wth, Microsoft?

    Did you first **remove** KB3035583, then download and reinstall following the steps in the procedure above? Near as I can tell, everyone who has done this has wound up with the Win10 upgrade icon in their taskbar.

    Yep. I removed it and tried the steps.

    Edit: It's working now. I think it helped, but I've restarted so many times already trying to fix this. Oh, well. At least it's showing up.

    Hello, I was also looking around and found that KB2976978 was also needed. When I check for updated I can not find it nor can i find a place to download it. I was wondering on your opinion on this.
    Thanks

    How to remove (or acquire) the Windows 10 free copy icon | InfoWorld

    So The instructions are simple. Run the cmd windows batch file as administrator. Then there is a disclaimer and if you wish to continue press enter. Then I pressed enter and then enter again. Then I pressed 1 to check, and then I press 2 to use "quick method #1". For me it worked after that. it put the app on the bottom right next to my network icon. after that i reserved windows 10.
    Again IT worked for me although I'm not so sure if it will work for you guys. The only required update for windows 10 I have is kb3035583.
    Thanks for your help guys.
