After some 4.5 years of trying to get Windows 7 users onboard its latest desktop operating system, Microsoft is officially calling it quits on Windows 7 in about 2 weeks.
There are still millions of users reluctant to make the inevitable upgrade to Windows 10 – which, contrary to popular belief, remains free.
Microsoft‘s support web pages have revealed that Microsoft will discontinue its support so that they can focus on supporting newer technologies and creating better experiences. As a replacement, the tech giant recommended users to install Windows 10 sometime before January 2020.
Microsoft had said that users should stop expecting any kind of support after January 14, 2020, it appears that the company will continue to send security definition updates to Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE).
Earlier, Microsoft had said that MSE would also stop receiving any updates after this deadline. However, the company has now confirmed that the default anti-virus program for Windows 7 would continue to receive some updates.
Here’s how you can upgrade to Windows 10 for free:
Visit the Windows 10 download page.
Click on ‘Download Tool now’ and download the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool
Run the Media Creation Tool and accept the licence terms.
Select ‘Upgrade this PC now’ and click on ‘Next’
Click on ‘Keep personal files and apps’ and then click ‘Continue’.
Windows 10 will begin to be installed
Windows 10 finishes installing, users need to connect to the internet and open Settings > Windows Update > Activation and the computer/laptop will be activated with a digital license.
