I have Windows 8.1 in my Laptop bought in 2014. I have missed the Window 10 free upgrade. Is it possible now to upgrade my OS to windows 10 and to Windows 11?
If yes, How to get it ?

You should be able to still get the free upgrade to W10 by clicking on the blue Update Now button at the link below.
After you have W10 installed and check that it has been activated, you would have to use one of the several W11 hardware check bypass methods to upgrade to W11, because your notebook does not meet a couple of the W11 hardware requirements.
I found this method to be the easiest way to upgrade to W11 when your PC does not meet the W11 hardware requirements...
Before you upgrade to W10 or W11, I recommend that you make a system image of your current W8.1 installation prior to updating to W10/W11, so you can easily reinstall W8.1 in the future, if necessary. I used the free Macrium Reflect software to do that, under the Backup at Home section.
Along with the system image, make sure you create the bootable DVD or USB rescue drive you boot from to access the system image stored on your portable hard drive.
