Windows 10 upgrade prompts will now have a clear "decline" option

 

Windows 10 upgrade prompts will now have a clear "decline" option after many consumers reported that they accidentally upgraded their PCs to Windows 10 or that the upgrade was performed against their will. 

Microsoft has taken this feedback and has changed the Windows 10 upgrade notification so that it now has clearer options to decline or delay the upgrade. This comes after Microsoft lost a court case where they had to pay out $10,000 because of an unwanted Windows 10 upgrade. 

 

   Since we introduced a new upgrade experience for Windows 10, we've received feedback that some of our valued customers found it confusing,

We've been working hard to incorporate their feedback and this week, we'll roll out a new upgrade experience with clear options to upgrade now, schedule a time, or decline the free offer.

  Windows 10 upgrade prompts will now have a clear

 

Microsoft has recently announced that their Windows 10 "Free Upgrade" and their annoying notifications will end on July 30th, with the upgrade costing $120/£99.99 thereafter.   

This means that those who are currently running Windows 7 or 8.1 will only have around two more months to upgrade to the new OS for free, as if they decide to upgrade after it may cost them a lot more than expected. 

Below is a statement from Microsoft:

 

       Windows 10 is the best version of Windows yet, and is now running on 300 million active devices. Watch Bryan Roper from the Windows team run through the 10 top reasons to upgrade to Windows 10 – before the free upgrade offer ends on July 29th.

 

In a statement to WinBeta Microsoft stated that upgrade notifications will be disabled on systems with older systems after the free upgrade offer is over, though right now details are still yet to be finalised.

 

    Details are still being finalized, but on July 29th the Get Windows 10 app that facilitates the easy upgrade to Windows 10 will be disabled and eventually removed from PCs worldwide. Just as it took time to ramp up and roll out the Get Windows 10 app, it will take time to ramp it down

 

 

 

After July 30th those who upgrade, will be forced to pay Microsoft a fairly hefty sum, which will no doubt anger a lot of people if they didn't upgrade in time.

I suggest users should upgrade and then downgrade back to windows 7 so their key works either on windows 7 or windows 10.
