For most systems it's technically OK.

But there might be hardware you can't get drivers for. Or software that doesn't run in Windows 10. Then rolling back might be a good idea.

It’s free... until 29 July 2016!

The biggest decision taken by Microsoft with Windows 10 was to offer the OS as a free upgrade to current users of Windows 7 and 8.1. In fact there’s a good chance that your PC is already displaying a new icon in the system tray, prompting you to upgrade. For XP or Vista users Windows 10 is a paid upgrade, so it's a bigger decision. As a reminder the free upgrade runs out on 29 July 2016.

Before you do this make an image or clone of your hdd.
That's just in case things go bad wrong.

Does the maker of this machine show support for w10?
Is there something in w10 you want/need?
Is there something in w7 that's busted??

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
