With Windows 8.1 you can either:

a) upgrade to windows 10:

b) clean install to windows 10:

If you want to upgrade instead of clean install then make sure that you uninstall any of these non-Microsoft software:
a) antivirus
b) firewall
c) drive encryption


If you have important files it is always best to make free or pay backup images before an upgrade:
Examples are:
Acronis
Aoemi
EaseUS
Macrium
Paragon

Hi @cindysaide-5477

Yes, you can download Windows 10 latest version 21H1. You can use the Update assistance tool to update to Windows 10 .

If the above tool is throwing out an error uninstall all non-Microsoft software. You can also try the clean install to update to windows 10.
