And then you will open up a new tab. And will start getting things ready for you.
They will then ask you to accept their “terms and conditions”. And you simply “Accept” them.
Step 3: Upgrade this PC
So after the second step, your computer will take some time (up to thirty minutes based on your computer) to get things ready.
And then, it will give you two options to choose from…
- Upgrade this PC now
- Create installation media (USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO file) for another PC
All you do now is choose the “Upgrade this PC now” option. And click “Next”. But before that, it is advisable to backup your PC.
Then, it will start downloading the most recent version of the Windows 10 operating system. Which can take up to an hour based on your computer.
It will take some time with some various updates and the installation, so it would be best to stay a bit patient in this process.
Step 4: Accept the Applicable notices and license terms
Later on, after the installation is done. Your PC will ask you if you want to accept the “Applicable notices and license terms”. And you simply accept it.
And then it will take some time to make sure your PC is ready for the installation.

You can click on this option called “Change what to keep”.
After that, you can choose what to keep. Either you want to keep your personal files and apps or nothing in your new upgrade.

And you click “install”.
Then your Windows 10 installation will start.
Hopefully, you can do the rest of setting up Windows, which is pretty easy. And you will be then successfully upgraded to Windows 10 for free.

So once you finish installing Windows 10 for free. In most case scenarios your Windows 10 PC will ask for an activation key or either way, a product key. And without that, your Windows 10 computer won’t be activated.
And unless your Windows 10 computer isn’t activated, you won’t get all of its features. Such as there will be a watermark on the lower right side of your screen which.
And it won’t let you customize your PC any way you want. For that, you can read this guide on activating Windows 10.
