Windows 10 is a very stylish and lighter operating system in comparison with many other previous versions of the Windows operating system for PCs or SmartPhones. Windows 10 for SmartPhones is undoubtedly the best Windows Mobile OS so far, it has lots of new features, very smooth performance and beautiful UI-UX.
Sadly, Microsoft is giving Windows 10 OTA only for these following Lumia smartphones running Windows Phone 8.1 Denim:-
Lumia 1520, Lumia 930, Lumia 830, Lumia 735, Lumia 730, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 640, Lumia 635 (1 GB RAM), Lumia 540, Lumia 535, Lumia 532, Lumia 435, and Lumia 430.
If your device is on the list and haven’t updated your device to Windows 10 yet just go to Settings > Update & security >> Phone update >>> tapping Check for updates.
But for those devices which aren’t listed above can also install Windows 10 manually on their devices with a simple method.
In this post, I’m going to explain how to install windows 10 on Lumia 720, take Lumia 720 just as an example because the process is the same for other Lumia devices. You can follow the same process and install windows 10 on old Lumia devices.
Note:- This will not be final build but I have installed and used on few Lumia devices, it works perfectly without any lags and issues, still you should be very sure before moving forward and proceed to installation only if you are very sure what you are going to do.

You can decide by understanding the description below each option but my recommendation is to go with the option Insider Release Preview.
- Tap on Insider Release Preview and then tap on right arrow below the screen.
- On next to the screen it will ask you for confirmation. Tap on accept to continue with the installation.
