    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows Try "update now" ... have never tried that from Windows 7, so not sure it will work, but get a USB flash drive (8gb at least) and download a copy of Windows 10 just in case you need to re-install. Here's a video on how to do it. and

    You can use another computer to make Windows 10 installation media using a 4GB or larger USB stick or a DVD disc, then boot off that and do a clean install of Windows 10 or run the installation from within Windows to do an upgrade. If you have data or programs that survived the to recovery procedures I'd recommend you do a backup first.

    Since you already had Windows 10 there should be no license concerns and you can skip entering in a Windows key.

    Here's the site to download Windows 10 and make the installation media: https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows10

    Also the term is downgraded not degraded.
