It’s now two years since Windows 10 was released and one year since Microsoft’s free upgrade offer ended.
If you missed that initial 12-month window but you’re reluctant to pay from £119.99 to upgrade now, there is still a legal way to get the operating system for free.
Microsoft allows customers who use ‘assistive technologies’ such as a screen magnifier, text narrator and on-screen keyboard to upgrade to Windows 10 for free, without asking for proof of their physical or cognitive difficulties, impairments or disabilities.
Click Upgrade Now and follow the instructions to install Windows 10.
Microsoft has yet to announce an end date for this free upgrade offer, although it does say that “it is not intended to be a workaround for people who don’t use assistive technology”
WHAT’S THE CATCH?
This is really a matter for your conscience: are you comfortable with exploiting an offer aimed at people with genuine accessibility needs?
Considering the cost of the OS, the number of ads it displays and the way it harvests your data. you may think it’s a fair trade-off.
