Hi,
A friend of mine has a computer at his garage with windows 7 on it, he keeps getting notifications that apps will not work on 7, so can he still upgrade to windows 10 no?
Cheers

Yes, even though the free upgrade period expired some time ago Microsoft haven’t bothered to officially end it.
The upgrade should not ask for a key or any machine ID.
I would recommend imaging the drive before upgrading in case of problems.
You can also see if there’s a Win 7 key in the BIOS & make a note of it:
Run this cmd within powershell with admin powershell “(Get-WmiObject -query ‘select * from SoftwareLicensingService’).OA3xOriginalProductKey”
Or wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey if using cmd prompt.
Or: Check this program to reveal if there’s a key embedded in the BIOS:
Or: Download and run this: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/showkeyplus/9pkvzcprx9nv to find all keys used on the PC.
