If you go to the Microsoft website to upgrade to Windows 10 it will cost $139 for the home version. When it first came out Microsoft offered an upgrade free for one year. If you did not upgrade at that time both Techdator News and CNET tell you how to get a free upgrade to Windows 10 still.
In order to upgrade you need to have a computer with some basic capabilities.
- A 2-GHz processor
- 4 GB of RAM
- 100 GB of hard disk space
1. Go to the START MENU and left click on the word Computer on the right side.
This will open a thermometer looking gauge that shows how much storage space there is on your computer and what you have used so far.
2. Go to START again, but this time right click on the word Computer. This will open up a window where you can see information about your Windows Operating system. It will tell you there how many GHz your processor has and how much RAM your computer has.
p.s. I just tried this on a computer that had Windows 7 Pro. I was able to do it for free! It took a while, but it worked!!
