New York (The Verge) — How to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 for free trib.al/eyK4CIZ.
Microsoft will still let you upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 free of charge. Windows 7 support ends January 14th, but you can easily upgrade to Microsoft’s latest operating system.
The most important thing to remember is that the Windows 7 to Windows 10 upgrade could wipe your settings and apps. There’s an option to keep your files and personal data, but because of differences between Windows 10 and Windows 7, it’s not always possible to keep all of your existing apps. Make sure you’ve noted what apps you use regularly so you can easily obtain them by downloading the installers again. Windows 8.1 can also be upgraded the same way, but without needing to wipe your apps and settings. — Tom Warren/@verge
