The company has announced that it will suspend the security update for Microsoft Windows 7 from last year itself. Windows 7, one of the most popular operating systems in the past decade, currently has millions of users worldwide. After the launch of Windows 10, the company gave Windows 7 users the opportunity to upgrade to the new operating system. In such a case, users who are still using this old OS can update their OS to Windows 10 for free before the end date.
Microsoft has also announced last year that it would no longer receive any security patches and bug fixes for Windows 7. Apart from this, no technical support will be available from the company’s customer care. If you are also a Windows 7 user and want to update your PC to the new Windows 10 operating system, then you can update this OS by following the procedure shown below.
Let’s See its simple steps
Steps 1: First, go to the official Microsoft Windows 10 download page.
Steps 2: Here you will get the option “Download now”, click it. Next, you need to download the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool.
Steps 3: You will have the option to accept the license once the media creation tool is run and accept it.
Steps 4: When you click OK, you will have the option to “Update this computer now”, clicking on it and pressing the “Next” button.
Steps 5: In this step, you will have the option to keep your files and applications. Click “Save files and personal applications” that appear on the screen and press “Continue”.
Steps 6: Windows 10 will start installing as soon as you click the install option. However, keep in mind that it will take between 30 minutes and 1 hour.
Steps 7: Once the Windows 10 installation process is complete, your computer or laptop will need to connect to the Internet and go to the settings. Then click on Windows Update. After that, the computer or laptop will be activated with a digital license.
Note: One of the most important things to keep in mind is that this method will only work with Genuin Windows 7. If you are using pirated or cracked version of Windows 7, this method will not work.
