Microsoft confirms It’s scheduling Windows 10 Upgrade on some PCs

Windows 10 logoMicrosoft has implemented a change to the way the Windows 10 upgrade is offered to Windows 7 and 8.1 computers, scheduling the install of the new OS without previously asking users.

The first time we reported about these scheduled upgrades to Windows 10 was on May 16, but it appears that Microsoft implemented the changes four days earlier, on May 12, according to information provided by the company itself.

In a recent advisory published by Microsoft, it reveals that the Get Windows 10 app has been updated to schedule upgrades to Windows 10, but at the same time giving users the option to cancel it easily.

And truth be told, it’s as easy as pressing the “cancel” button if you don’t want to move to Windows 10 because the new upgrade prompts come with an option that reads “Click here to change upgrade schedule or cancel scheduled upgrade.”

The company claims that the change comes based on customer feedback, although we’ve seen many users angry that their PCs are scheduled to receive the upgrade to Windows 10 without first asking them.

"Based on customer feedback, in the most recent version of the Get Windows 10(GWX) app, we confirm the time of your scheduled upgrade and provide you an additional opportunity for cancelling or rescheduling the upgrade," Microsoft is quoted as saying.

One important thing that you must have in mind is that once the upgrade is scheduled and you don’t take any action, the Windows 10 installer is automatically launched. Furthermore, if you open the Get Windows 10 app and just press the “X” button in the top right corner, the schedule doesn’t change and the Windows 10 upgrade is launched as planned.

The free upgrade offer for Windows 7 and 8.1 users ends on July 29, and everyone who wants to install Windows 10 beyond these date needs to purchase a license. The Home version of Windows 10 costs $119.99.
