You can still get a free Windows 10 upgrade

The time to get a free upgrade to Microsoft's latest operating system Windows 10 is over. This free upgrade is not available to general users after July 29. However, the company has extended the free upgrade deadline for users who use assistive technologies. Although this offer is for a specific type of user, it can be availed by all users.

The free upgrade of Windows 10 was stopped for general customers only last week. But if you are a Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 user, you can download a setup file from Microsoft's website. Once you install it, the upgrade will start automatically. Because Microsoft cannot currently determine which users use the Assistive capabilities, every user can take advantage of this upgrade offer.

Speaking to The Verge, Microsoft acknowledged the existence of a Windows 10 upgrade extension and said that no end date has been set for it at this time. The company will give information before closing the extension.

This Redmond-based company rolled out Windows 10 for general users on July 29 last year. It was made available for free for devices running Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. The new operating system is used in laptops, PCs, tablets and Xbox One consoles.

The biggest problem with this upgrade is that the company marketed it very aggressively. Many users complained about this, after which Microsoft decided to exercise some restraint.

Windows suggested upgrading to a newer version so frequently that many users became frustrated with it. The company's aggressive strategy can be gauged from the fact that Microsoft has been accused many times of downloading and installing Windows 10 without user's permission.

Once, the company had to pay 10 thousand dollars as damages to a woman for installing Windows 10 on her personal computer without her permission. The woman had complained that some of her files had been lost due to this update.

On the other hand, in the month of August the company will release the anniversary update of Windows 10. This information was given in the company's annual build conference held in the month of March.
