What you need to know about the Windows 10 assistive technology upgrade

Everyone likes a freebie, right? Especially when that freebie involves a great technology update that would usually cost you a lot more money, time and effort.

A common point of discussion that we’ve noticed popping up online lately is the Windows 10 upgrade, and how it’s still possible to get it for free. The offer for a free upgrade from Microsoft is technically over, but it is still possible to get it if you know how to work the loophole correctly. In fact, that’s what we’re going to be going over in this post today.

In this blog post, we’re going to be going over everything that you need to know about the Windows 10 assistive technology upgrade – what it is, and how exactly you can go about getting your hands on it.

What’s the deal with this upgrade?

Many people believe that the free upgrade offer for Windows 10 was stopped by Microsoft in 2016. The notifications and marketing campaigns stopped, which led many to believe that they could no longer get the upgrade without having to spend money on it. This was disappointing for some who wanted the free upgrade, but a relief for others who weren’t interested in it.

However, this is not the case. The upgrade is still entirely available and easy to find, and can be found on the Microsoft website for those who use assistive technologies on their computer. One of the best things about it is that it’s completely free to upgrade.

How do you get the upgrade?

In order to get the Windows 10 assistive technology upgrade, you’re going to need to head to this page on the Microsoft website. From there, you’ll need to download the upgrade assistant tool, which will help you along the process of upgrading your current software.

Of course, you’re going to need to have Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 first in order to make this work out, as this helpful article notes. It’s a simple process to complete, as long as you follow the steps that are laid out in the assistant tool If you’re having any compatibility issues (which some people have reported) then check out this article for some help.
