R.I.P windows 7
 

 
Today was the last day Microsoft will be offering any updates for it. For those who still need to update. Microsoft is still offering windows 10 for free, I hate windows 10.

With support for Windows 7 officially over as of today, Microsoft is encouraging users to upgrade to Windows 10 to keep devices running securely and smoothly. On Microsoft's website, the Windows 10 Home operating system costs $139 to download. However, you don't necessarily have to shell out the cash: A free upgrade offer from Microsoft that technically ended in 2016 still works.

When Windows 10 was first released in July 2015, Microsoft offered an unprecedented free upgrade offer for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 users, good through July 2016. But in 2017, Ed Bott of CNET sister site ZDNet reported that the free upgrade tool was still functional. I tried it out in November 2019, and was able to upgrade a 2014 Dell OptiPlex 9020 desktop from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro. As of January 2020, readers are still emailing me and commenting below, saying that it's worked for them as well.

Windows 7 users who don't upgrade to the new version will no longer be able to get Microsoft's security updates or fixes, or technical support for any issues, leaving your computer at greater risk from viruses and malware. While Windows 10 users have experienced a number of bugs over the years, upgrading remains the best option for keeping your computer safe, analysts say.

Here's how to get Windows 10 for free, if you're currently running a licensed and activated copy of Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 Home or Pro:

1. Go to the Download Windows 10 website.

2. Under Create Windows 10 installation media, click Download tool now and Run.

3. Choose Upgrade this PC now, a*suming this is the only PC you're upgrading. (If you're upgrading a different machine, choose Create installation media for another PC, and save the installation files.)

4. Follow the prompts.

5. When the upgrade is complete, go to Settings Update & Security > Activation, and you should see a digital license for Windows 10.

Just finished downloading windows 10 on my old broken down 8 year old laptop

Gonna miss windows 7


Edited to add that I had mad sticky notes and the update deleted them all. Can't even pull the app back up. Nothing lost since I typed them all out on my other laptop before I did the update

I don't need or want any updates.

It took forever until I was fu*king around and saw how to turn that sh*t off. Stop downloading extra sh*t, already.

Did my desktop yesterday, its running slow might have to get a new one. Got it in 2008 it came with windows Vista upgraded to windows 7, now windows 10.

I did upgrade my graphics card, the one I had was not compatible with Windows 10. My computer was flying with the new card on windows 7, then I put windows 10 in it's not flying anymore. I think its because of all the apps have to disable them

No they give you an option to keep everything, right before it installs, it will ask if you want to keep your files.

If you gotta use Windows 10, I'd recommend the LTSC version. It's the most stable version of Windows 10 and the purest form of Windows out right now. It receives regular security and driver updates while not being bloated with bullsh*t like Cortana, Candy Crush, Windows store, Edge, Start menu tiles, etc. And even though it doesn't come with these, you can still download them later on if you so choose.

The only downside is that it there's no way to get official keys for it, so you have to use an activator. But if that doesn't bother you and you're tech literate, give it a try - especially if you're used to Windows 7.

The one thing I hate about windows 10 currently is the whole having to make a Microsoft account and the whole chrome Gmail syncing thing.. in the past this sh*t was optional. Another thing is you gotta download a regedit for the file organizer when manually moving stuff inside files

The right answer. Windows 10 LTSC is the best version out right now. You can get legit keys on eBay and MPGH. I got one that works for 9 PC's.

Funny thing is, Windows 7 was pound for pound like one of their most stable OS's. 10 is ok. I mean it's better than what it used to be. They fixed many of the bugs. I just don't like the fact that Microsoft is becoming more like Apple and its more apparent now.

Just look at all the privacy crap you have to disable in Windows 10.You can't even disable auto updates unless you manually go into the system and modify folders smh.
