Windows 10’s Free Upgrade Expires Soon

Have you upgraded to Windows 10 yet? Because on the 29th of July, Microsoft will stop offering users the chance to upgrade for free.


When Windows 10 was released last year Microsoft said they would let anyone running home or pro versions of Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 to upgrade to their latest operating system for free within in the first 12 months. It is now nearly 12 months since Windows 10 has been released, and that offer is set to expire soon. Anyone who hasn’t upgraded to Windows 10 before the 29th of July will be stuck having to pay $119 to upgrade.


According to NetMarketshare, as of today Windows 10 is currently being run on 19% of all computers around the world. However, Windows 7 is still being run on 49% of all computers, and Windows 8/8.1 on 10.5%. This means that there is still a large number of people out there who have not yet taken Microsoft up on their offer for a free upgrade yet.
