Microsoft has announced that users only have until July 29th to upgrade their machines to Windows 10 for free.

Although the operating system will come installed as standard on new devices, after July 29th users will have to pay £99 for a Windows 10 upgrade.

Microsoft’s latest operating system is now running on 300 million active devices around the world.

The firm said it is seeing significant growth in “people using the awesome features in Windows 10, taking advantage of Microsoft Edge, Cortana, PC gaming, apps and the Windows Store”.

Yusuf Mehdi, corporate VP of Microsoft’s Windows and Devices Group, said on the Windows Blog: “We’re pleased to see Windows 10 become one of the largest online services in less than a year. Core to delivering our more personal computing vision, Windows 10 offers experiences that are familiar, safer and more secure, and more personal and productive – enabling innovative new experiences.

“We’re seeing people at home, at schools, at small businesses, at large companies, and other organisations adopt Windows 10 faster than ever, and use Windows 10 more than ever before.”

The free upgrade offer to Windows 10 was a first for Microsoft, and the firm says the OS has the highest customer satisfaction of any version of Windows.

Bryan Roper from the Windows team has created a video sharing the top 10 reasons to get Windows 10 before the free upgrade ends. Check it out below:
