Microsoft says the year-long offer will expire on July 29, 2016, which is less than three months away. After that date, unless a new offer of some sort materializes, you’ll need to pay for a Windows 10 upgrade at the prevailing retail price, $119 for a Home upgrade or $199 for the Pro edition.
But what if you’re not ready to switch to Windows 10 yet? Can you claim your free upgrade and keep using your current Windows version?
Yes, you can. And it’s not a loophole, nor does it involve any tricks. It merely involves claiming your entitlement under the free upgrade offer and then rolling back to your prior operating system. With that entitlement in place, you can schedule the final upgrade for when you’re ready, even if that’s after July 29.
But the bottom line is this: If you think you might want to upgrade a PC to Windows 10 at some time in the future, claim that free upgrade now, before July 29 rolls around and the price goes up. Call Lake County Repair today to schedule a time to get your computer or laptop upgraded in time.
