    You can still get a free Windows 10 upgrade

    Locked

    by Tammy.Cavadias ·

    Microsoft’s much-hyped free upgrade offer for Windows 10 ended in 2016, right? Not exactly. ZDNet’s Contributor Ed Bott states, the GWX tool may be gone, but all the other upgrade tools still work. The end result is an apparently valid digital license, and there’s no evidence that the free upgrades will end any time soon.

      If that is the case, why are we asked to make a payment when we want to update to Windows 10 now?

      With this ‘free’ path (nothing really is – privacy and control) is this build for Win10 the most current? Or will this route require hundreds of MB’s of updates and hours of time with multiple reboots before the workstation is stable enough for productive use?

      by dineshramgaikwad ·

      In reply to You can still get a free Windows 10 upgrade

      There has always been Windows 10 available at no cost, to upgrade from previous Windows or to do a Clean Install. You will need a Windows 7, or 8 product Key to activate. https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/software-download/windows10

      Adding the updated link , as just used it on my CITRIX VDI

    • #2422496

      True. Even I have tried that.

      by elishahammond ·

      In reply to You can still get a free Windows 10 upgrade

      Some users claim that you’re still able to upgrade to Windows 10, as long as you have Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 running on your PC. Bear in mind that you’ll need to run a genuine copy on your PC in order for this process to work.

      In addition to the genuine copy of Windows, it’s also a good idea to have your product key available since you might need it to activate Windows 10.

      If you don’t have the original Windows DVD with the product key available, you can get the product key from your PC by using NirSoft’s ProduKey software.

      In reply to You can still get a free Windows 10 upgrade

      Microsoft has stopped given the windows update in 2016 but there are various methods,I will let you know.
      Getting windows update free if you are not getting officially you can easily update through many mediums.Getting windows update is easy and availble through many resources.
      If you’re running the tool on a different PC, or if you just want more flexibility, choose the second option and save the installation files to a USB drive or as an ISO file.

        USB

        In reply to Windows update is always free of cost.

        can it be any USB or does it have to be a specific USB that can store the windows installation?

          USB for windows installation

          by tomhamer0161 ·

          In reply to USB

          You can use any USB to store and install windows 10, you just need to have enough storage on the USB at least 16GB store the installation and then you will be able to install windows 10 with no problem.
          You can also download the installation from the Microsoft official website they have it there updated.

          pleasure to help you 🙂 Tom Hamer

      I prefer to don’t update the windows, it slows your system and many services that run in the background which drain your internet and disk usage.

      YES you can!

      by jessewalter375 ·

      In reply to You can still get a free Windows 10 upgrade

      YES you can! As of April 2020, you can still use Microsoft’s free upgrade tools to install Windows 10 on an old PC running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. No product key is required, and the digital license says you’re activated and ready to go.
      Talking about the latest technology now it is very much possible to rent out a virtual desktop to fulfill your unique requirement. THis help the user in saving huge amount of money as he has to just rent the system. i have been using such virtual Desktop from CloudDesktopOnline.com and they have delivered quality service to me.

      Hope this will be helpful to you.

        You will have to contact Microsoft to purchase a license, though you can download the installation file and put it on like a DVD, USB thumb drive, etc. But as for the free upgrade, only goes down to Win7. Vista and earlier versions require new licenses.
