It's time to give up Windows 7.
We have repeatedly mentioned that Windows 10 was offered free of charge to all owners of legal versions of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 for the first year since its release. However, we also mentioned that it was only in theory, and Windows for free it could also be updated after this date, which has been reported regularly by system users from around the world since December 2017. It just so happens that this situation has not changed until today, so Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 can still be updated to each of you.
How to upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10 for free?
To change from Windows 7 to Windows 10, simply download the program from our file base Media Creation Tool. After running it, accept the license terms, and then choose the option from the two options displayed "Upgrade this computer now". This will start the Windows 10 installation.
It is worth adding that during installation the program will ask you if you want to keep your files or whether the disk should be cleaned. Users who opted for the first option report that the applications they installed on Windows 7 worked without problems on Windows 10.
And what about the activation of the improved system? During installation, activation should take place automatically. Nevertheless, it should be noted that Microsoft states that Windows 10 activated on December 31, 2017 using the method described does not have a valid license. Accepting the activation process is not tantamount to acquiring license rights. It is strange why, despite this, Microsoft has not decided to block activation.
Windows 7 has not been supported by Microsoft since January 14, 2020. Thus, only Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 are receiving the necessary updates at this time. As an exception, to compensate for problems caused by recent pre-support updates, Microsoft today released a patch for Windows 7 that addresses these issues.
