Are you using Windows 7 or Windows 8 and have been putting off the upgrade notifications? Hurry! you have less than one week to get Windows 10 for free.
At 11:59 p.m. UTC-10 on July 29 (2:59 a.m. Pacific and 5:59 a.m. Eastern on July 30), the free Windows 10 upgrade will no longer be available.
July 30 is the deadline for free PC upgrades to Windows 10. Once the operating system passes its one-year anniversary, Microsoft Corp. will start charging $120 to move over to Windows 10
When Microsoft released Windows 10 a year ago, it said the free upgrade for Windows 7 and Windows 8 users would last a year. The limited time offer was to get as many people on to Windows 10, as quickly as possible. So far, Microsoft’s ploy appears to be working: 300 million active devices, old and new PCs, are now running on Windows 10, Microsoft saidThursday in a blog post.
If you willing to upgrade before July 30, start by visiting the Windows Update website and check to see if your PC is compatible with Windows 10. If it is, Microsoft will walk you through the upgrade.
Before you upgrade, make sure you back up your important files, on an external hard drive and, if possible, in a cloud service too, most of your old apps should work well with Windows 10
I still see no personal really reason not to upgrade. In fact, if you upgrade and you don’t like it , you can simply go back. Within the first month of upgrading to Window 10, you can go back to the previous version of Windows just by going to —>(Settings => Update & security => Recovery) quite easily. And even if you wait more than a month, you can often choose to restore your device to factory settings or simply reinstall an older version of Windows with the original installation media.
