How to Upgrade from Windows 7 to 10 for Free
Step One| Backup
First, we need to backup all the data on Windows 7. We suggest using an amazing backup service like pCloud. They offer lifetime cloud storage for a one-time price… meaning you pay once and never have to pay a subscription fee again.
Otherwise, using an external backup is a great option as well. Always double-check all backups have completed successfully before continuing to the free upgrade to Windows 10. If all goes well with the Windows 10 install, all personal files and applications should transfer over from Windows 7 with no problems. Some older more outdated software might have some compatibility issues… but this isn’t too common.
Step Two| Download Windows 10 for Free
Next, we will be downloading and installing Windows 10. This is where the .Edu email address will come into play.
Go to On The Hub to download Windows 10. This site will allow users to get a full free version of Windows 10 Education. To get the free version of Windows 10 users will be asked to pick a college to which their .Edu email is associated with. OnTheHub.com will then send a verification email to the provided .Edu email address. Once the email is verified, the Windows 10 installer will be ready to download. After the download is completed, run the installation of Windows 10. This will generally be located in the download folder after the file has been fully downloaded. The exact file name will be “Media creation tool.”
