Less than 50 days remaining to upgrade to Windows 10 for free
Microsoft will end the free upgrade to Windows 10 offer that’s available for Windows 7 and 8.1 users on July 29, which means that those who can benefit from this promo have less than 50 days to do it.
Redmond launched its new operating system last year on July 29 and decided to offer it free of charge to those who were running Windows 7 and 8.1, giving them one full year to upgrade without paying a single cent. For those who are still unsure whether this comes with a catch, here’s the thing.
You can upgrade to Windows 10 any time by July 29, 2016, and the operating system will be available for you without any cost for the entire lifetime of your device. This means that you won’t get a trial version or a demo, and Windows 10 won’t turn into adware after July 29, as some people claimed, but to benefit from all of these, you have to upgrade before the offer expires.
“We want to remind you that if you haven’t taken advantage of the free upgrade offer, now is the time. The free upgrade offer to Windows 10 was a first for Microsoft, helping people upgrade faster than ever before. And time is running out,” Microsoft says.
Unsure about upgrading to Windows 10?
We’re pretty sure that there still are a lot of users who haven’t decided whether to upgrade to Windows 10 or not, but the decision is actually a lot simpler than you’d be tempted to believe.
All you have to do to make sure that you get more time and Windows 10 remains completely free for your device is to upgrade to the new OS right now and then downgrade to your existing version. Yes, that’s possible thanks to a built-in downgrading option, and Windows 10 will continue to be available free of charge for your PC even beyond the July 29 date if you perform the upgrade by that deadline.
So there you go, time is indeed running out for those who want to upgrade to Windows 10, and although we do know that some people have many reasons to refuse it, you have less than 50 days to reconsider your option and take advantage of this offer.
