Microsoft support for Windows 7 will come to an end on January 14, 2020. When this happens your computer will still function but Microsoft will no longer provide software updates, security updates or technical support for any issues.
To keep your computer secure you can still upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10 for free, see Upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7 for Free
Do a System Image First, just in case of catastrophic failure using System Backup & Restore.

N.B. Windows 8 is dead and 8.1 dies January 10, 2023.

We are talking mainstream support, some business models are longer-lived.

Before January 14, 2020, Microsoft claimed to provide a free upgrade method. After January 14, I did not check to see if it was still free.

That link is still valid. The owner of the group is a Microsoft MVP so you can trust his forums.

But be careful, some are hacked and when Windows tests it the OS then becomes useless.

Found 2 so-called free Windows 10 upgrade ways.
It is important to be able to accomplish this safely and smoothly. The former is the latest recommendation from Google. The latter is a recommendation from a friend.
