WIndows 10 free upgrade lives on


WIndows 10 free upgrade lives on

Permalink 04:30:00 pm by Eugene Gardner, Categories: Articles

I am surprised at the number of computers I see running versions of Windows earlier than 10.  I think for most owners it is fear of the unknown, belief in the (typically exadurated at best) scare stories, or indolence that results in this foolish state.

But the good, if only probably temporary, news is that you can still upgrade without having to spend the £85 or thereabouts that a Windows 10 license would normally cost.  To do this you need to go to eBay (other auction sites are available) and buy a license key for Windows 7 - I just did this and paid £6.

Obtain the installation kit for Windows 7 from 
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows7  and install it. 

Now visit Microsoft for a free upgrade to Windows 10 - currently available free for devices using assistive technologies.  Go to
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/windows10upgrade for this from the computer needing the upgrade. 

The only place left to visit is
