Get the free Windows 10 upgrade in 2020 for free

Windows 10

Last year, more than 800 million users installed Windows 10 on their computers. However, Microsoft's ambition to bring this operating system to 1 billion users by 2020 has not been met.

This is the main reason why the company offered a free upgrade to users Windows 7 and 8, which is supposed to expire in July 2016. However, this is not the case, as there are ways to get the new operating system, until today.

Η Microsoft has expanded the offer to assistive technology users, but anyone could just claim to be using such technology to get free upgrade.

In fact, it seems that there is always a loophole that allows for free upgrades and perhaps the company itself allows this, informally of course.

How to get the free upgrade to Windows 10?

Follow these steps to install the upgrade for free:

  1. Go to her website Microsoft and download it Media Creation Tool.
  2. Run the tool and follow the steps, depending on whether you want to upgrade your computer or create media for another machine.
  3. Install Windows 10 on your computer and make sure it is connected to the internet.
  4. If your computer is compatible hardware, then the tool will install the latest version, which is Windows 10 1909.

Once you have completed the process, you can go to Settings> Update & Security> On, where you will find the activation confirmation that says: "Windows 10 is activated with a digital license associated with your Microsoft account."

It is important to note that the Windows 10 license for digital devices is connected to your machine's hardware. So, if you have made major changes to your hardware, the activation process may cause some errors.

The upgrade is highly recommended for Windows 7 users, as Microsoft will officially release the OS on January 14, 2020. Microsoft stopped creating new features for Windows 7 7 years ago and will now stop security updates. Therefore, users should upgrade their systems in a timely manner.

Of course, another reason to get the free upgrade to Windows 10 is to have access to all the new features, such as Timeline, Action Center, UWP applications, etc. If the offer ceases to be valid you will have to pay approximately $ 140 to receive the upgrade.
