Windows 7: What Level must W7 be at to upgrade to W10?

What Level must W7 be at to upgrade to W10?

Does W7 need to have every download available to begin an upgrade to W10?

I would start fresh if need be but that would take about a full day.

If there is a point where 7 is at a level to go to 10, I'd like to know.

As far as I am aware of, NO!
The reason I base this on is because the Win 10 downgrade has been available for years, many, many, many updates ago!

I hope this helps!

Brightness level
Hello, I recently upgraded from Vista to 7. I don't quite remember how the brightness was set on Vista, but I can't figure out to find a level to please me in 7. What level do you use for your systems? Here is my current setting.
