Hello,

I have a pc which is in windows 8.1.
Some how since my windows 8.1 was running smoothly i didn't
upgrade to windows 10. A big mistake.

Will it be possible to upgrade from windows 8.1 to 10 now for free?
It is a old computer so I would like to upgrade it for free.

If answer is yes can you guide me how to do that please?

Thanks in advance.

Well, the specs can cope ok. But, there is no longer a free upgrade.
Godd news (maybe), is that I have experienced a couple of instances where users in your situation have contacted MS by telephone, and gave been given the option to upgrade free of charge. See if it works for you;)
