It’s easy to get your free upgrade – here’s how:
Use the Get Windows 10 app to reserve your free upgrade to Windows 10. Windows 10 will download to your device and notify you when it’s ready. You can cancel your reservation at any time.
- Click on the small Windows icon located at the right end of the taskbar to get started. If you don’t see it, visit Microsoft page Q&A for more information.
- Click “Reserve your free upgrade” in the app window.
- Enter your email if you want confirmation of this reservation.
Note: This free Windows 10 upgrade is available for PCs and tablets; the free Windows 10 Mobile upgrade will be available for most phones starting later this year.2
Once the upgrade is ready for your PC, Microsoft will send you a notification and you can upgrade right away or pick a time that’s good for you.
After you’ve upgraded, you have Windows 10 for free on that device.
