Microsoft In Action: Shifts Windows 10 To ‘Recommended’ Update, Automatic Download

Agressively showing that Microsoft has been making its attempts to push consumers to download Windows 10. Starting today, the company is rolling the ante once again. Windows 10 is now classified as a “Recommended” update, which by means who are already on Windows 7 and 8.1 will be able to download automatically and begin installation.

Be defult, Windows 7,8, and Win 8.1 shipped with updates enabled and a second box — “Give me Recommended updates the same way I receive important updates.” Checked it already. Users in plenty have changed these settings, but you can admit that millions of people haven’t done. Automatic updates on your Windows PC activated, is a very good idea for many users.

Committed to making it easy for those Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 customers to fairly make an Windows 10 upgrade. Nevertheless, there are several issues to be aware of here. First and foremost, users on metered connections must either turn off recommended update or disable automatic updates altogether if they don’t really want the 6GB download to count against your monthly limit. Unlimited data users can continue with the oft-mentioned process reversed.

Those who won’t have enough speed limits of the Internet connection. Simply by deleting the file isn’t sufficient, your OS will download it again. However, Microsoft never recommends disabling automatic update, but the company has no better solution for users who can’t spare the bandwidth to boot the OS, but don’t want the update.

There’s still an option which Microsoft placed to say “No” before the Windows 10 upgrade begins. This is what Microsoft’s version of “No” looks like:

Microsoft made this unusual change to the Windows 10 GWX application, in a patently obvious attempt to thrust more consumers towards upgrading. The company’s opt-out of Windows 10 installation is unlikely to be much more better. No denying that there won’t be any issues for at least some Windows users, and of course Microsoft itself.

Some Windows 10 drivers won’t update properly, where some others will misinterpret the installation as malware, since Microsoft hasn’t historically updated its new operating systems in this fashion. Some out there click on “Get Windows 10” without knowing exactly it is an entirely new operating system that indeed makes significant changes to how basic system functions work. Resetting system defaults to MS programs is going to leave some people thinking their previous browser settings or customizations are also gone.

Microsoft actually wants its entre user base on Windows 10. With this move that targets use who don’t know enough to disable Recommended updates, also rejected Microsoft’s previous offers as though.

Here’s what Microsoftr has published a KB article detailing how end-suers can take control over the upgrade prompts and disable them in future availability. Get it downloaded from here.
