Yes, you can still download Windows 10 for free. Microsoft has been consistently marketing its latest version, Windows 10, to its customers. It had even offered to let the Windows 7 and 8.1 users to upgrade their operating system to Windows 10 for free.

But Microsoft being Microsoft, has left a loophole for those who are still interested in upgrading their machines to Windows 10. In this article, I’m going to tell you exactly how to download Windows 10 for free using Microsoft accessibility site even after the free upgrade has been ended.
