How To Upgrade To Windows 10 For Free

Microsoft allows you to upgrade to Windows 10 for free.

As from January 14, 2020, Microsoft will stop releasing new updates for Windows 7, meaning that all PCs running on any version of this operating system will no longer get security updates in the future. Needless to say, this is nothing but the last farewell of Microsoft to the decade-old operating system.

Microsoft gives you a chance to upgrade your device.

In case you’re using Windows 7 and feel worried about this shut-down, Microsoft gives you a chance to upgrade your device to the latest Windows 10 OS. Of course, the computer will still work without Windows 10, but using an outdated version won’t be an advantage at all. What’s more, this can be done for free, so you won’t have to spend any buck for your upgrade. Now, let follow these steps below to get things done.

Step 1: Open a web browser on your computer, head to the Windows 10 download page via this URL: www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10/

Step 2: When you're already there, let tap on the Download button and Run. You can find this under the Create Windows 10 installation.

Step 5: Once the upgrading process is done, navigate to Settings Update and Security, and then click Activation to see digital licenses.

For your information, the Windows 10 version on your computer will depend on the former version you used. For example, devices running Windows 7 or 8 Home will instead be loaded with Windows 10 Home. Similarly, “Pro” versions will link to a higher version as well.
