I have a PC running windows 8 core which is updated to windows 8.1. I want to know what will happen when I upgrade to windows 10. Which version of windows 10 will I get upgraded to when it is released?

  • You can most probably pay for just an in-place upgrade from Core to Pro.

8 Core is basically 10 Home.



What edition of Windows will I get as part of this free upgrade?

When you upgrade, you’ll stay on like-to-like editions of Windows. For example, Windows 7 Home Premium will upgrade to Windows 10 Home.
