Microsoft's free upgrade offer for Windows 10 ended last week, or did it? The software giant has introduced a "free upgrade offer extension" for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users who use assistive technologies. While, technically, the free upgrade offer for the general public has ended, Microsoft has introduced a loophole with this extension that lets anyone get Windows 10 for free.
All you need to do is download an EXE file from Microsoft's hidden away accessibility site, and the Windows 10 upgrade will commence without any checks. Microsoft says it has not announced an end date for the upgrade extension, and the company will make a public announcement when it plans to remove the free Windows 10 upgrade for assistive technology users.
