Microsoft Shut Down the free Windows 10, 11 Upgrade Loophole

As expected, Microsoft is now not allowing users to use Windows 7 and Windows 8 keys for activating Windows 11.

It was a big loophole in the company’s famous products, allowing users to freely upgrade to Windows 11 from Windows 7, and 8 to Windows 10 or 11.

This update was announced by Microsoft last month but to date, users have been able to use the keys for upgrading to their desired operating system. This week, Windows 7 keys are fully blocked by Microsoft.

The update was confirmed by the company to The Verge. From this week onward, you won’t be able to use Windows 7 or 8 Keys for Windows 11 upgrade.

However, if you have already upgraded your system, then your Windows activation status won’t change. You are the owner of Microsoft Windows and it will work for you.

Any user who plans for a free upgrade, won’t be able to do so unless they buy a fresh license.
