windows 10 upgrade scanning tool

Does microsoft have a scanning tool that will determine if a windows 7 laptop will run windows 10.

A friend has a 7 year old celeron laptop and gthe computer shop says it is not compatable with windows 10, I am doubtful it is the right advice. Unfortunatley he lives over a 100 miles away so a scanning tool would be adviseable.

Thanks in advance for any help and have looked at older threads but not found what i require.

Thanks Gordon Freeman

Passed the link to my friend and talked him through it on the phone. He downloaded the software and windows checked his system . It was happy to instal windows 10. He now has a trail period to test his software and will decide if he is going to get an upgrade disk in the future.

Have green ticked the thread as resolved.

Pleased it worked geoff...might be worth checking if you can still get win 10 for free. I'm sure I read on zdnet (just google it) that some people were still getting it as recent as Jan 2020. Worth a look.
