If you haven’t updated to Window’s 10 as of last week then you should be out of luck, right? Not so fast. Microsoft’s windows 10 free upgrade, which was said to have ended last Friday, has been given an extension of sorts.
It seems via a Microsoft loophole there may be a way to get more windows users moved from Windows 7 and 8.1 to Windows 10. Because who wants to pay to upgrade.
Here is what you have to do according to an article by The Verge:
All you need to do is download an EXE file from Microsoft’s hidden away accessibility site, and the Windows 10 upgrade will commence without any checks. Microsoft says it has not announced an end date for the upgrade extension, and the company will make a public announcement when it plans to remove the free Windows 10 upgrade for assistive technology users.
So, if you haven’t upgraded, it’s not too late. Go. Update. Live happy and Free. Don’t be the person who missed out twice. Or, as our former president George W. Bush would have said, “Fool me once, Shame on you. Fool me a second time… you don’t fool me a second time.”
Get the update now and you are then eligible to get the Windows 10 Anniversary Update which is said to be loaded with a ton of great features like Windows Ink, Cortana Improvements, UI tweaks, phone syncing, and an improved Skype app among other things.
If you’re a Windows user that hasn’t updated this should be great news.
