If you are on Windows 7, we would recommend going for this free upgrade technique. The offer officially ended on July 29, 2016, but way before the company could reach even closer to its 1 billion goal.
Furthermore, if you are already running a non-activated version of Windows 10, you can unlock it for free as well. For example, people with accessibility issues are able to upgrade to the new operating system, which offers much better support for these users, without paying the upgrade fee. But in reality, anyone could just claim that they use assistive tech and get the free upgrade.
Windows 10 still available as a free update for Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 users.
Why did not Microsoft stop the free upgrade from earlier versions of Windows to Windows 10?
Now, the latest trick to get Windows 10 on your machine is easier than ever, as reported by CNET and Bleeping Computer.
Once the download process is complete, you can begin the upgrade process by running the tool on your Windows 7 system.
After Windows 10 is finished installing, connect to the internet and open SettingsWindows UpdateActivation and the PC will be activated with a digital license. 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.
"Windows will continue to start and run, but you will no longer receive software updates, including security updates, from Microsoft".
Are you still using Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1?
We have recently proven this out with an older but still valid Windows 8 key, and yes Windows 10 still appears free for the taking, as long as you have that valid Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 license. Then fire up the downloaded app and select "Upgrade this PC now". This is when promotion-eligible customers will start seeing Windows 7 ESU keys in VLSC. Many people rushed to upgrade because they felt the deadline was hanging over them like the sword of Damocles... but it seems that the deadline was not as pressing as Microsoft made out. You don't have to spare hundreds of dollars in order to plan an upgrade.
