How can I get a hard copy of Windows 10?

Episode 1322 (1:58:17)

Diane from Warren, OH
Windows 10

Diane wants to know how she can get a hard copy of the Windows 10 update. Leo says as long as she has already upgraded, it will be good forever. Then she is entitled to install it on her computer forever. There is a tool for it called the Media Creation Tool. This will enable her to create media and Leo recommends using a USB thumb drive. Then she can install it from the thumb drive. It's something everyone needs. Does that mean she can never put a new hard drive in? Leo says no. She can replace the hard drive, video card and maybe even the motherboard. But when Microsoft sees these new parts, they may deny her authentication. She would just need to contact them and let them know that she's replaced that part.
