Step by Step Guide to Windows 10 Free Upgrade

Step by Step Guide to your free upgrade to Windows 10.

As you may or may not know Microsoft is ending their support for Windows 7 on the January 14, 2020. If you continue to use Windows 7 after support has ended, your PC will still work, but it may become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. Your PC will continue to start and run, but Microsoft will no longer provide support or security updates for your business. We recommend you follow the steps below and carry out a FREE upgrade to Windows 10. If you do not feel comfortable doing this we can carry out this upgrade for you at a discounted cost of £30.00+VAT per PC.

1 - Please click on the following link - Microsoft Windows 10 Link

2 - Now click on the 'Download tool now' button as circled below:

3 - Depending on which internet browser you are using it may ask you whether you want to save the file. Please save the file into your downloads (which will probably be the default location anyway).

4 - Next please browse to your downloads through the file explorer and here you will see the saved Media Creation Tool. Please double click this in order to run the application.

5 - The Windows 10 Setup will then begin. If you follow the steps through, the Windows 10 upgrade will soon begin.

6 - After accepting the terms, the installer will ask you whether you want to keep your files as shown below. Please make sure that you choose to keep your files and Windows settings.

7 - The installation will then begin, and the computer will eventually restart and then continue with the install. The PC will then restart again with Windows 10 now installed. (Please be aware that the download process can take a while to complete and depending on your internet speed it can take up to a couple of hours.)

Windows 10 should now be successfully installed on your PC. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
