Still hunting around for a free Windows 10 upgrade option? Don’t be hasty and go the unethical route when Microsoft is offering a free upgrade to Windows 10. Yes, we’ve been periodically reminding our readers that Microsoft is still offering you a way to upgrade to Windows 10 completely free of cost.
What Version of Free Windows 10 is Microsoft Offering?
On their assistive technologies page of their website, Microsoft offers you Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607) that is the current version of Windows. The problem is, since Windows 10 Creators Update should be releasing to the public any time now, that offer might not be around for long. Click the link below to go to Microsoft’s Accessibility page.
Windows 10 Free Upgrade for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 Users
Is This Upgrade Ethical?
In a word, yes. Even though Microsoft is offering this free Windows 10 upgrade for assistive technology users, their definition is deliberately broad enough to include Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users who use simple tools like keyboard shortcuts. So if you use your keyboard to copy-paste with Ctrl+C / Ctrl+V, then you’re eligible. Microsoft has made that amply clear in more than one place, and you’ll see that if you dig around from that page.
Please Note: You will need to use your existing product key for Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 to activate the upgrade. If you do not have a product key, don’t worry, just head over to this article, where we explain how to get an ISO file (disc image) from Microsoft for a free Windows 10 upgrade.
