Upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 8

After the successful release of Windows 8, Microsoft started offering existing Windows 7 users upgrades to Windows 8 at a minimal cost.

Unlike the challenging process of upgrading Windows XP to Windows 7, upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 8 is comparatively easy, and requires no additional and complicated steps to be taken to get the task done.

Considering the above positive points, upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 8 is highly preferred over installing the latter as a fresh copy because of some major benefits which are:

  1. The upgrade process allows administrators to keep Windows settings, users’ personal data, and installed apps from Windows 7.
  2. The upgrade process allows administrators to remove everything except users’ personal data.
