Changes to Windows 10 ‘Free Upgrade’ Rules

Microsoft has warned that free Windows 10 upgrades will soon be coming to an end as of 29th July, standing by its promise the company confirmed it will soon start charging for Windows 10 bringing its free upgrade offer to a close.

Microsoft has also begun to auto schedule PCs to upgrade to Windows 10 with or without consent from end users.  However, as long as you’re running an updated version of either Windows 7 or 8.1 you’re eligible for a free upgrade.

Microsoft has made it clear that the changes to the ‘free upgrade’ rules aid with their long-term strategy to get Windows 10 running on a billion devices within the next few years. So if you want to avoid paying $119 for the Home edition or $199 for the Pro edition then now is the time to upgrade.
