    Desk top computer froze and whatever we did we couldn’t get past blue screen it was stuck on asking for keyboard to be set up. So, realising I would lose everything I decided to factory reset it but didn’t realise I would lose Windows 10 which was upgraded when it was free to do so. The computer is getting on a bit but after latest upgrade which we think was the issue I am now left in the dark ages. Please can anyone suggest which is best operating system to use now? I do not want to pay the charges for upgrading as I do have Windows 10 on a laptop.

    If you already had Windows 10 then you go back to Windows 10 for free, an existing upgrade doesn't expire. The license is tied to the system, so as long as you still have the same system you can go back to Windows 10 for free at any time.

    Download/Update to it from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows10
