How to Upgrade to Windows 10 From Windows 7 or 8

5 min read

Windows 10 is the best PC operating system yet, with a powerful new Start menu, a UI that switches between and touch and mouse-friendly modes, the Cortana digital assistant and a host of other improvements. If you’re already running a legitimate copy of Windows 7 or 8, you’re eligible to upgrade for free. Running an OS upgrade takes a little time but not much effort or expertise — when you’re done, you’ll have the most powerful Windows yet, with all your programs, settings and data still in place. Here’s how to upgrade to Windows 10 for free.

Windows 10 should install without a hitch, but driver problems are a possibility and, during any system update, there’s always a chance something will go wrong. Before you begin the process, make sure you have all of your data files backed up, preferably to a cloud service such as Microsoft’s own One Drive, where you can download them again if your computer crashes. If you don’t have a system restore disk already, it’s a good idea to make a full system backup, using disk imaging software such as Macrium Reflect, which makes a bit-by-bit copy of your hard drive.
