  • Windows 10 users beg Microsoft to stop giving them FLAC Microsoft misunderstands

While Microsoft initially predicted that one billion devices would be using Windows 10 by summer 2018, in recent years it stepped back from that pledge, after it became clear it would not hit those figures, largely due to Windows' failure to gain traction in the mobile phone market.

But new Windows 10 installs have continued growing at a strong and steady pace and reached nearly 700 million devices back in May. According to Net MarketShare, a third-party tracking platform, Windows 10 has now 39.22% share followed by Windows 7's 36.90% as of December, 2018. At the time, Windows 10 still trailed Windows 7 in terms of market share.

Back at Microsoft's Build 2015 conference the company claimed it would hit 1 billion Windows 10 devices by the middle of a year ago. That's due to different sites being monitored and different methodologies in handling the data.

As ZDNet's Ed Bott has previously explained, NetMarketShare aims to measure daily unique users within its network, while StatCounter measures total traffic. Gamers, who still tend to upgrade more frequently than ordinary users, have adopted the newer operating system in much larger numbers.


The other important factor here is that Microsoft's extended support window for Windows 7 closes on January 14th, 2020 - just over a year from now. Last Windows 10 update rolled out in December, 2018. According to New Marketshare, in November previous year Windows 7 held 38.89 percent of the market while Windows 10 was second with 38.14 percent.

If you have already upgraded to Windows 10 version 1809 and found your admin account to be disabled, you may try to enable the built-in administrator account, login to that account and then try to enable your administrator account.
