Windows 10 by Windows 7 anyone? Although Windows 7 is still one of the best options to have a stable Windows system, the upcoming support fee may make you think of an upgrade to Windows 10.
If you are one of them, the following post is for you.
Windows 7 will cease to have security updates after January of 2020, which means that the operating system will be vulnerable to any new vulnerability that is discovered.
So for many users, although they do not want an upgrade to Windows 10, it will sometimes be mandatory.
So for you that you do not want to spend money and you have a legal key for Windows 7 below, we'll see how you can upgrade to Windows 10 without paying. Let's mention that Microsoft recently increased the price of Windows 10 Home in the United States at 139,99 dollars, while Windows 10 Pro still costs 199.
Let's see what you can do.
You will first need to install Windows 10 on your computer. Take a good backup, because you have to do a clean installation. Because a product key is required, you can use a general license depending on the version of Window 10 you are trying to install:
Windows 10 Home YTMG3-N6DKC-DKB77-7M9GH-8HVX7
Window 10 Pro VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T
You can also install Window 10 by testing if you see the option (depending on the installation media), which allows you to test the operating system for 30 days.
After installing Windows 10, follow the path below to find the activation that will allow you to key in the Windows 7 key that you have from your old operating system.
Settings - Update and Security - Activation
Click Change product key and add the Windows 7 key. If everything goes well, then you're done. New Window 10 has been enabled on your system.
As an alternative, you can open a command prompt window (look for cmd and right click on the result. Select Run as administrator, or open as administrator) and type the following command:
CPI slmgr.vbs xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx
Obviously, you should replace xxxxx with your own key.
If you do not have the legal Windows 7 product key but know that your operating system is legal, you can view the license on your computer before upgrading to Window 10 with the application ProduKey.
