When you consider the fact that Microsoft warned everyone back in mid-2015 that it would only be possible to upgrade to Windows 10 for free for a limited time after the release of the operating system, it is perhaps a little surprising that more than five-and-a-half years later there is still a route to a free upgrade.
In order to get a free upgrade, you need to be running a genuine, activated copy of either Windows 7 or Windows 8.x. You can then use the following steps to earn yourself a free upgrade to Windows 10:
- Download the Windows Media Creation tool from the Microsoft website.
- Launch the tool and select the Upgrade this PC now option.
- Following the on-screen instructions to upgrade your operating system.
- Before long, you will have Windows 10 installed.
- Check the activation status of your system by opening Settings, heading to Update & Security and then looking in the Activation section. You should see that Windows 10 is activated but if not, you can click the Activate button to complete the process.
