Upgrading Windows 7 To 10?

Recommended Posts

No no, who told you that?

Jeffrey's right. Microsoft have moved to providing continuous updates rather than release new versions. Ensuring everyone is on the latest version saves them from having to maintain (and provide security updates for) old versions.

 

Whether this "Windows as a Service" as they are calling it eventually moves to the full software as a service model where you pay an annual fee for access, as companies like Adobe now do for their products, remains to be seen.

Is it correct, as I'm told, that Windows10 won't ultimately be replaced in this complex way but that it will simply be updated (routinely) from time to time?

Yes, this is correct...

Windows 10 will be the last 'major' version of Windows, with only updates and 'Service packs' provided moving forward!

Oh so now i understood the question. I thought that he's asking to revert back to previous windows or re-install it back.

Worth posting i think

 

Windows 10 update alert as millions warned by Microsoft they may need to buy a new PC

 

https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/science-technology/1224380/Windows-10-update-news-Microsoft-Windows-7-end-of-life

The basics of the link are true. Some of the other parts are, yet again...pure scare mongering.

 

This section of the forum has covered how upgrade to Windows 10 for free or very cheap. There will be times where Win 10 won't work on some very old hardware. We also covered how some versions of Linux work well on such hardware. Like phones and TVs etc, PCs get old and it could be time to upgrade.

 

It's simply an End of Life for an Operating System... Not the world!

Well I was amazed yesterday evening when my wife asked me to get someone to put her windows 10 on her windows 7 machine. I told her about the media creation tool 1909 and she said can you try it on mine. We did and it installed exactly as mine did a few years ago when it was free for all. No product key needed and all her programmes on windows 10. I was amazed. It seems to be working O.K. this morning.

Excellent news, so all the programs she had installed were still there and running?

Two freebies in a week! 😉

 

Just a small heads up if you're on 1903 and it's not triggering the 1909 update, there is an Update tool also. I've had a couple that needed the update tool using. Not a clue why it only happens on some systems, and never got round to reading up on it.

All was O.K. this morning but we will have a better idea when we use it later.
