Carol wants to know if her netbook is eligible for the free Windows 10 upgrade: “I have a netbook with Windows 7 Starter OS.  Will it upgrade for free to Windows 10?  I haven’t seen anything on that netbook about upgrading like I do on my desktop but wasn’t sure if it was covered or not.  Thanks.”

Devices running Windows 7 starter are eligible for an upgrade to Windows 10 Home.  But that device needs to meet the technical specifications for Windows 10.


If you haven’t seen the notice to upgrade on your device, I’d suggest making sure you’ve run all of the latest Windows updates for Windows 7, and also checking with the manufacturer of your particular model to see if it will support the upgrade to Windows 10.
