Go to the Microsoft.com site

Try doing a system update and if it is available, should give you the option to upgrade free. Windows 11 is right around the corner but isn't "officially" available yet.

I worry that the question might be "update for free."

The answer to that looks to be no. We tried it last month and the free update from 7 to 10 is no longer working.

BUT! If you had installed W10 then rolled back we did find that we could install 10 and avoid buying a license because of how Microsoft implemented licensing.

All that aside, if you were to try to upgrade from 7 to 10 using any of the web pages how to do that, the recurring advice is to backup what you can't lose.
