- [Voiceover] Because upgrading…from Windows XP to Windows 10 is neither free,…nor automatic, like it is with other versions of Windows,…we need to consider the different options we have…for upgrading to Windows 10.…The easiest way, but possibly the most expensive option,…is to go out and buy a new computer…that already has Windows 10 installed.…All you need to do then, is get your files transferred…from your old computer to your new one.…And maybe reinstall some programs you were…working with on the older computer.…You can see I've opened up my browser here…and gone to the Microsoft store, microsoftstore.com.…
If you wanna follow along, go ahead.…Now this is always being updated,…so your screen may not look exactly like mine,…but you will see options for buying products,…you can see we have a Products drop-down,…which can include devices like computers,…that will come with Windows 10.…And of course, you can always go out shopping…for your own computers, laptops, et cetera,…with Windows 10 already installed.…But we're talking about upgrading…
Note: Windows 10 is not a free upgrade for XP users. You will need to purchase Windows 10 before proceeding with the migration.
