I already have Windows 7 or 8.1…
You’re one of the lucky ones. Owners of Windows 7 or 8.1 will be eligible to upgrade to Windows 10 free of charge.
I don’t have Windows 7 or 8.1.
If you're using an older version of Windows and want to upgrade, you’re going to have to pay. If you download a full install copy of Windows 10 from the Microsoft store, you'll pay $179 for the Home version, or $299 for the Pro version. Our tip?
