Windows 10 Upgrade Notifications are indeed one of the most annoying features in Microsoft’s system. It can pop up at any time it wants, no matter how busy you’re. Recently, Metinka Slater, a meteorologist reporting for KCCI 8 News had to suffer embarrassment while she was giving a live weather forecast. The Upgrade Notification for Windows 10 appeared on the huge display screen interrupting the live weather report.
Poor thing. Unable to hide her embarrassment she made a little joke,
“Ahh, Microsoft recommends upgrading to Windows 10. What should I do? Don’t you love when that pops up?”
R.I.P Windows 10 Upgrade Notifications
Finally, the Windows 10 Upgrade Notification will soon become a matter of past. The company is planning to remove upgrade notifications. After July 29th, Microsoft will remove Get Windows 10 application from Windows 7. The company will also remove the same feature from Windows 8.1 as well.
Regarding the Windows 10 Upgrade Notification, the company previously said that users can have absolute control on their device. They can select not to install or to get rid of the upgrade from WU (Windows Update) by changing the settings.
In a statement to WinBeta, the software giant has confirmed that it’ll soon get rid of Windows 10 Upgrade Notifications after July 29th.
“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 the time to ramp up and roll out the Get Windows 10 app, it will take the time to ramp it down.”
For those individuals who’ve resisted switching to Windows 10 from Windows 7 and 8.1, the Upgrade Notifications will disappear. Many third-party applications have allowed users to disable the irritating notification. Also, system administrators can get rid of the process by killing it for business machines.
Although, the official date for removing the notification has arrived, but Microsoft still has considerable time to back out. It can reverse the decision anytime if it wants to, but we hope the company sympathizes with our worries.
