You can still upgrade to Windows 10 for free

You can still upgrade to Windows 10 for free”

While the official free upgrade period which allowed users to upgrade from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 has expired, it is still possible to make the switch at no cost. The offer was valid for all Windows 8, 8.1 and 7 users by using the free upgrade tool.

"After the cut off happened, the direction given was that it requires a paid license HOWEVER, this was brought up by the brick and mortar stores that they were doing simple clock changes on customer devices during the upgrade challenge to get around it and then ultimately it was clear two years later that anything Windows 7 and up would go to 10 fully activated and still to this day", he wrote in the post. From here, you will be able to upgrade to Windows 10 without paying any money.

While we haven't had the opportunity to try out the method ourselves, another Redditor, a self-proclaimed Microsoft engineer with the username u/CokeRobot, says they can confirm the process works and, is an intentional ploy from Microsoft to enable folks to migrate from older operating systems.

You still can do this no problem, however careful, do an upgrade keeping everything as if you choose to yeet everything and start fresh, you lose your free upgrade.

The year 2019 is about to end, and more than 800 million users are running Windows 10 on their computers. The free updates are only shipped to volume licensing customers, though.

Once the upgrade is done, your Windows 10 PC would be ready to use.

Windows 10 saw a surprising decrease in desktop operating system market share in November 2019, according to data from NetMarketShare. An SMB with 10-200 Windows 7 machines that were OEM licensed don't really matter.

Unfortunately, this option doesn't work for everyone and it is better to go for a clean installation of Windows 10. You can't shit on someone taking advantage of an activation workaround when you as the manufacturer never closed it. One of the major reasons is obviously the series of issues that come along with Windows 10.

Click the 'Download Tool now' button to download the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool.

To download the theme, all you have to do is click on this link, copy the URL, and then click on this link and paste the URL you just copied.

If the same PC is being upgraded, follow the prompts, which will verify your computer's hardware capabilities and upgrade it to the latest Windows 10 1909.

"Windows will continue to start and run, but you will no longer receive software updates, including security updates, from Microsoft".
