You can still upgrade to Windows 10 for free
« on: January 22, 2017, 06:28:34 PM »
After being on win 8.1 for some time, yesterday i read this article and decided to try and it worked. The first time it refused, but after disabling my start ups and anti virus, bingo worked a treat.

Although microsoft finally pulled the plug on its free upgrade offer to Windows 10 on July 29, 2016 following a year-long promotional campaign. This means that Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 users cannot upgrade to the latest version of Microsoft’s operating system free of charge post the above deadline.

BUT ... As long as you are using a valid version of Windows 7 or 8.1, the following method to upgrade for free should work on your PC. Like it did for myself. Reports

1. Visit the Download Windows 10 website.

2. Click Download Tool Now.

3. Once downloaded, run Microsoft’s Media Creation Tool.

4. Next, choose ‘Upgrade this PC now’ option and follow the on screen instructions.

5. Once done, you will be given a license key for Windows 10.

6. You can check on your digital license by going to Settings > Update & security > Activation
and activate the license key.

If you upgrade to Windows 10 using the method above, you will also be able to download the Windows 10 Creators Update which is tipped to be available in April this year. The Windows 10 Creators Update is expected to include a host of new features and could also have a fresh new look.

PS: Like i said it worked for me, but i do not hold myself responsable if you mess it up

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
