My advice is not to do this unless it's offered.

If your PC is not offering the free update The reasons are on a list far too long to list here.

If you get the offer you may still need to find a driver or app after the upgrade but before you upgrade, you must have what you can't lose on backups.

Re: upgrade Windows 8 to Windows 10

A two step process:
1. Upgrade to Windows 8.1
2. Wait till it asks you if you want to upgrade to Windows 10 (that famous question that so many people hate)
3. Say yes.

If the question #2 doesn't come after Windows 8.1 is fully updated, go to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-10-upgrade and click "Download now". Any machine that can run Windows 8.1 should be able to run Windows 10, and if for some reason it doesn't work, the upgrade tool will tell you. And you have 30 days to go back if it really fails.
