How Can I Upgrade to Windows 10 for Free?

Episode 1607 (36:26)

Jerry from Ponte Vedra, Florida
Windows 10

Jerry helps seniors update to Windows 10, but he runs into trouble when he goes to multiple computers. Leo says as long as they have a serial number, they should be able to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10. It will authenticate the computer based on the serial number. Jerry says to go to this link to download and update - https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=799445. You can also use the Windows 10 ISO link here - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO and use the media creation tool to create a USB Key to upgrade. Leo also says that Microsoft is coming to the conclusion that the days of making money on an operating system are about done. So it wouldn't surprise him if they allow anyone to upgrade after the first of the year.
