Eventually, you’ll have to upgrade, it would be better if you move to Windows 10 before the promotion offers ends. However, if you’re not ready there is a workaround that will allow you to get the upgrade of Windows 10 at any time. Previously, I showed you the instructions to the upgrade for free at any time, but I’m now also publishing a video tutorial to help you step-by-step to upgrade to Windows 10 for free after the promotional offers ends for Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. The process includes to make a full backup of your system in case something goes wrong during upgrade. Then you need to make sure your version of the operating system is up to date. Followed the two previous steps, you will upgrade to Windows 10, and immediately rollback to the previous version of the operating system. The upgrade will make sure that your Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 product key becomes entitled to the installation of Windows 10. Then you can upgrade to Windows 10 at any time you want, allowing you to keep using your current operating system for a bit longer. Have something to add to this guide?
