Windows 11 will be the protagonist for a few days. Along with the leaked version, we will have to wait until June 24 to know all the details of an update that will be free for Windows 10, but apparently also for those who still use Windows 7 and Windows 8.x.

With Windows 10, users of previous operating systems (Windows 7 and 8) were able to switch for some time (we have already seen that then the term was extended) to the more modern version of Windows and it seems now that history can go back and repeat.

Free for Windows 10, 8.x and Windows 7

With the launch of Windows 11, if in the end this is what Microsoft announced on the 24th, it would seem that everyone who uses a computer with Windows 10, but also those who use Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1.

In this sense, to be able to update to Windows 11, it will be necessary to use a tool already known as Media Creation or the Update Assistant.

As noted in Windows Latest, there is a good chance that Windows 11 will arrive as a free update for all Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 users. For this, you will need a version of Windows with an original license and thus be able to update to Windows Update free of charge.

A conclusion drawn after studying the configuration keys found in the product key configuration package (Pkeyconfig) in the filtered version of Windows 11 and where the configuration files needed to legally switch to Windows appear eleven.

We will have to wait until the 24th to find out what Microsoft’s plans are in this regard and whether Windows 11, if presented, arrives as a free update for previous versions of Windows.
