Is it still possible to upgrade from Windows 7/8.1 to Windows 10 for free?

Is it still possible to upgrade from Windows 7/8.1 to Windows 10 for free?

Either as a clean install with a product key and/or upgrade using USB Stick/Media Creation Tool.

The internet seems to vary in it's answers if googling within the last few months.

Thanks in advanced for your help

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It is still possible, nothing has changed.
Ask Microsoft if there is a reason why they say "the free offer expired" but it still works as before - I don't know, I can only guess they earn more money with win10 adopters then they lose by not selling a license.

Just download Windows 10 ISO or use Windows Creation Tool from any other Windows 10 to create bootable DVD or USB then install WIndows 10 using Windows 7 key from your label

Many Thanks. Just to clarify, Is it still possible to upgrade within Windows 7/8?

It doesn't have to be a clean install?

An earlier question you may want to review.

Agreed, perception is split, it still seems to be technically doable, but the unanswered question is is it ethically / legally allowed.
