Windows 10 Update for Mason Computers

In an ongoing commitment to provide a secure and compliant computing environment, Information Technology Services (ITS) has made Windows 10 updates and upgrades available via Software Center on managed Mason-owned computers that are joined to MESA. If your MESA computer is below the ITS-supported version of Windows 10, you will see a pop-up window on your screen with upgrade instructions.

See the Windows 10 Upgrade Guide for more details.

Please save all your work prior to upgrading. You will not be able to use your computer for 1-2 hours during the upgrade installation. You have the option to perform the upgrade at your convenience until Thursday, May 17, 2018, at which time, upgrades will be done automatically. This will not affect MESA computers running Windows 7, 8, 8.1 nor lab computers.

NOTE: You will not be able to log in for 1 to 2 hours while the upgrade is installed.

For questions, contact the ITS Support Center at or 703-993-8870.
