For those wary PC users who were either reluctant to upgrade to Windows 10 because the aliens would get them, or simply grand procrastinators who missed the date, there is a last chance saloon. Love it or hate it, Windows 10 is here to stay and it brings games such as Gears of War 4 that are specifically coded to only run on Windows 10.
Microsoft stopped giving the OS software away for free on July 29th 2016, exactly one year after its launch and is now available for purchase at £99.99 via Microsoft UK and the Pro Edition at £189.99.
This this info in mind we decided to find out if it is still possible to get a copy of Windows 10 for free.
So, if you are after the standard cookie cutter version then there is no way, currently, to get this for free anymore. There is a solution though, thanks to Microsoft’s caring nature. If you use assistive technology in your current version of Windows such as Text magnification, On-Screen Keyboard etc then you are entitled to download the upgrade for free by heading to this Microsoft link.
There are no checks for which tech you are using to assist you on your pc and all that is required is that you have a validated copy of an upgradable OS, and, of course, the storage required for the downloadable update.
So, that is how you can still get a free legitimate copy of Windows 10, any assistive technology is considered viable. Microsoft are expecting peoples honesty on this front, and, as we all know, everyone on the internet are pillars of their local community right?
Well, maybe. Anyway if you thought you were too late then you are still in with a chance without spending all your hard earned cash on an OS, that, lets face facts here, you have probably paid out for many times before already.
