Upgrading to Windows 11 may be free for some users
Upgrading to Windows 11 may be free for some users

Just a week before the official announcement, news and questions emerged about the release of Microsoft's next operating system called Windows 11.

The Windows 11 leak showed what has changed and what remains. Some users and customers may want to know if they can upgrade to the new Windows for free.

Turns out if they don't use Windows 8, they might be able to do so. There are indications that even if you are still using Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, you can upgrade to Windows 11 for free.

According to the information, Windows 11 has a special product configuration key to support Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. There is also a file for Windows 8, but this version is not supported.

You'll need to upgrade to Windows 8.1 first, and then to Windows 11, just as you did with Windows 10.

Upgrade to Windows 11:

Anyway, given that Windows 11 is the new look and feel of Windows 10, this news should come as no surprise.

Information about a large-scale visual update called Sun Valley has surfaced a while ago and was originally meant to be a part of Windows 10.

Windows 11 seems to be the new name for the next update. And you can see that the build number of the leaked build of Windows 11 is not far from the version tested so far by Windows Insiders for Windows 10.

Most likely, the functionality of upgrading to Windows 11 and updating Windows 10 users does not look much different. Anyone using Windows should upgrade to Windows 11 for free.

This is considered normal as Microsoft has talked about the number of devices Windows 10 is running on now.

The company's CEO, Satya Nadella, confirmed last month that the operating system could now run on 1.3 billion devices. Therefore, Microsoft does not need to further subdivide its user base.

If you wish, you can upgrade from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 for free at any time.

Although Microsoft originally said the free upgrade would only take a year, you can still do it since Windows 10 was released.

Instead of using Windows Update, consider using the media creation tools available on the company's website.
