A step by step guide

If you are looking to upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10 for your home or business, you might be feeling a bit overwhelmed. Without worries. We are here to help. You can perform the update task using the Media Creation Tool, available for Windows 7 and any device running Windows 8.1. You will need to download it before you can begin the update process. Note: Microsoft will end support for Windows 7 on January 14, 2020.
