Final Day For Windows 7 and Windows 8 Users to Upgrade to Windows 10 For Free July 29, 2016Posted by Maniac in Game News.
If you’re using a Windows 7 or Windows 8 equipped computer (either purchased at retail or bundled with your new PC) today is your final day to upgrade that computer to Windows 10 completely free of charge.
Windows 10 brought a lot of new features to the PC including native integration with Xbox Live, a new version of DirectX, an improved Windows Store, native support for new hardware, and a lot more. It’s also required to play recent games including Remedy’s Quantum Break.
If you have been holding off upgrading your system until the last possible minute, today is that final minute. You can currently upgrade to Windows 10 either through Windows Update or by downloading the Media Creation Tool.
In the highly unlikely event you are asked for a CD-Key, the Windows 10 installer will accept your Windows 7 or Windows 8 Key until the deadline ends. However, as long as you use it before the deadline passes you will be able to reuse it if you ever need to reinstall Windows 10.
