How to regain control over Windows 10 updates

Surprisingly, this has been announced the price of the upgrade to Windows 10, now that the term of free upgrade is over.

As you already know (or should know), updating to Windows 10 is completely free if we have a license for Windows 7 or Windows 10.

However, Microsoft already warned at the time that the term of said free update was going to be one year, and that at that time he had not yet decided what to do once the term expired. Many of us believed that the free update was going to be forever, but we were wrong.

This is the price of upgrade to Windows 10

Because now Microsoft has announced that, Starting July 30, upgrading to Windows 10 will cost $ 119.. Upgrading this way is the same as buying a Windows 10 Home license.

If it seems a very high number, it is because it is. A new license for Windows 10 Home on Microsoft’s official website costs 135, but we can get it with a discount of 40 or even more in some stores. And if we start looking for keys in dubious quality sites, we could find it for a tenth part.

Therefore, if the deadline is met and you have not yet updated, the best thing you can do is find a new license and install Windows 10 from scratch (once you have made a backup of your data, of course).

In truth, it must be said that Microsoft kept its word, leaving an exact year to update for free; At the same time, I can’t help but wonder if Microsoft was in his judgment in making this decision.

Microsoft is desperate for everyone to upgrade to Windows 10, reaching the point of marking the upgrade as recommended, which has caused many people to inadvertently install Windows 10. Charging $ 119 for the upgrade seems to go against everything the company did during the past year.

Time is running out, says Yusuf Mehdi, and never better said. If you had plans to upgrade to Windows 10 and you had not done so yet, it is taking too long.
