Windows 10 free download

Post by ABabeNChrist »

Is there still a free download from Windows 7 to Windows 10 :scratch:

I have an old laptop with Windows 7 and was hoping the free Windows 10 download was still available

How about Win 8.0?

I had a laptop I acquired specifically to create a family video, but after the trip to share it, that laptop was set aside. Needs an overhaul now to get rid of the dreaded 8.0.

You'd have to install Windows 8.1 first; there is no direct path from 8.0 to 10.

My experience is that 8.1 is usable as long as you avoid clicking on the Start button.
