    @John lavery
    Hi,

    When Windows 10 was first released, the offer for a free upgrade was available, but it ended on July 29, 2016.
    For your reference:

    You can purchase and download Windows 10 on your device.
    Although, if your computer is more than three years old, it might be time to consider upgrading to a new device.
    Hope above information can help you.
