Microsoft has pushed really hard for Windows 10 to become a more widely-adopted operating system, and while third-party market share data shows that it lags behind Windows 7, the company itself claims things are exactly the opposite.

In statistics posted on its Windows and Store trends website, the software giant says Windows 10 is currently the number one operating system on the desktop with a share of 46 percent. Windows 7 is the runner-up with 39 percent and declining, while Windows 8.1 is third with 13 percent.

Microsoft says these stats were collected in November 2016 at a time when the Windows 10 Anniversary Update rollout was already finalized. The Anniversary Update first launched in August 2016, but was released to users in stages.

As you can see in the graph provided by the software giant, Windows 10 improved at a really fast pace since its debut in July 2015, but the growth slowed down a little in the last few months, especially because the free upgrade offer is no longer available.
