There is no way to upgrade from F18 to F24 in one step. You could do F18 --> F19 --> F20 --> F21 --> F22 and then with dnf to F24. (It will be a pain, very time consuming, and not unlikely that something goes wrong)

I recommend you to backup you data from /home to an external drive and do a clean and fresh install of Fedora 24. Use your existing Fedora18 to create a bootable USB.

Fedora will recognize the existing Win10 installation and add it as an entry to the boot loader Grub.

Of course, you need to pay attention when installing F24: Don't touch the existing Windows partitions, and for an (U)EFI install, point /boot/efi of your new F24 to the existing EFI partition without reformatting it (there is a checkbox for that).
