Free upgrade from Windows 7 or 8.1 to Windows 10.

If you use assistive technologies, you can upgrade to Windows 10 at no cost. Microsoft continues its efforts to improve the Windows 10 experience for people who use these technologies.

With the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, we've taken a number of steps to improve the accessibility of Windows 10. To learn more, read our blog that details some of these improvements.

This is so old and well-known it's like posting "Regular Amazon customers who spend £20 or over can get delivery at no cost".

You say that but when I mentioned it this morning somebody immediately popped up & said 'thanks, I didn't know that'

Most of us here are trying to help people

*** Will the Mod who keeps merging this into another thread kindly stop showing his/ her ignorance - it has NOTHING to do with upgrade to Creators' Update ***

see above

this is not a new deal, in fact its not a deal at all, its a fudge. it deserves to be merged with any other post that references the update using assistive technologies.

Here come the Mods ...

I upgraded using this process a few months ago and the PC never worked quite right again. I am wary about upgrading my new PC as 8.1 is fine and don’t want to go through all that again.

basically you're happy to deny people this knowledge?

because when a new thread gets merged it disappears, we all know that

so if you weren't there (say) 10 months ago, s@d you, we don't care?

yet plenty of people would love to get the knowledge they can update to Windows 10 for free

Better start posting about the free amazon delivery thing then...

I actually only found this “deal” out myself a few days ago, when after doing a full restore on my computer it rolled back to windows 8.1 and wouldnt let me add new users. After a google search it shown me how to update to windows 10 for FREE, using the same method in op’s post and that solved the user issue.

Not everyone knows about this method - so its worthy of a post.

I'll stick with Windows 95. It cost me a lot of dosh back then and I want to get my money's worth.

Heat for reminding us.. good job!

You have shown disgusting attitude towards others. Really suggest you get off your high throne, first claiming you are in the ‘top 10% of computer savvy users’ but shown nothing to back that up and then slating others. You have posted two very similar threads that have been done to death, and you are suggesting using Assistive Technologies to get a free Windows 10 upgrade, which was actually someone else’s suggestion in your own thread that you put down because it ‘needs Windows 7 or 8 media’ and if you do that you’re abusing it - now if you or anyone else wants to do that, fine but don’t publicise it, just as if you pirate software

er - it was MY suggestion in MY thread lol

Never punch down

Microsoft said over a year ago they were going to close this method of "free" upgrades, they're either slow to respond or just happy for users to upgrade.

Microsoft don't care I think and want people to go to 10. it is just a way to keep is going and to stop the OEM's moaning at Microsoft as people won't need to buy new laptops.

in fact you can still update any version and it will activate the old way. I know because I did it last week going from 7 to 10.

probably good advice - sorry if I punched down but the old vino...

And...relax...

In case it helps anyone, you can install Windows 10 using a valid Windows 7 key anyway but if you need to "upgrade" instead this is a good tip

Thought this ponly worked on Pro?

Presumably best way from vista to Windows 7 is usb Iso with Oem key chea

Agree with OP this knowledge needs to be posted periodically as its really valuable Thanks OP

Or I believe mods are trying to hog all the credit themselves. I had one of my posts immediately deleted (saying duplicate). Didn't want to post again and again to be deleted again. Hours later, saw the same deal going hot (I believe 500+) which was actually posted after my post was deleted.

Can you still do that. I know you can while they had the free upgrade option. I think the only way now is to use the method on this post. If you can still use Win 7 key during installation (which had not already been upgraded to 10), that's great!

I’m going to say thanks to all those who already new about this for ages for still sharing.

I pulled out an older windows laptop from the loft a week ago for the kids to use for homework, and thought I was going to have to leave windows 7 on it.

Op, if you've a problem with something the mod is doing then I would suggest contacting directly and resolving the issue.
Insulting the mods in a deal with words like 'ignorant' and 'morons' is not big or clever.

Inb4 you get a snarky response from OP refusing to concede their behaviour has been anything less than perfect.

ps you dont need to register windows 10 it will still work, you just cant change desktop backgound. its a free download and you can make a bootable usb install,disk.

also linux is free as is libre office and will work well also.
i.e pixel for pc from rasp pi foundation will run from usb stick or can be install on hard drive

After upgrade many wished that they didn't.

You are correct in your thinking re-Microsoft wanting everyone to use Win10, I read an article recently which stated that anyone can update for free providing the software on their comp meets their criteria!

Added: Thank you for posting the deal. I have just this minute upgraded my Win7 to Win 10, all went perfect even picked up my Bluetooth keyboard and then took me to the screen I was looking at as I started the upgrade. Again, thankyou.

Can people who don't use assistive technologies get a free downgrade to Windows 7?
