Microsoft Forces Launch of Windows 10 on Users’ PCs

Microsoft has been in a rather thrusting manner deploying Windows 10 by coercing users of Windows 7 and Windows 8 to upgrade their operating systems. Never mind though for uninterested users; they just require disabling the pop up notices for Windows 10 quite simply.

A tech-lover somewhat irate while operating his laptop because he unexpectedly found the system cut off with a warning surfacing that within few minutes, upgrading of his software would begin.

The man was given an option many times towards pressing 'enter' on 'upgrade later;' however, the option no longer existed after sometime. Eventually he lost his cool, so took screenshots from the PC screen of the horrible countdown running even as he entered into a rant regarding the software's deficiencies. Mirror.com posted this dated June 6, 2016.

And while it's useful of Windows 10 Action Center that provides all the notifications such as regarding reminders, applications, or recently installed software, its overloading surely is alarming, particularly if unnecessary notices are added such as questions or tips regarding Windows that the feedback center gives.

Actually, the entire matter falls within Microsoft's pursuit towards making its Windows Store a place which users can visit to get the desired applications just like app stores for mobile phones now function. To certain extent, this is a mounting struggle. Computer operators simply do not wish using the Windows Store, while users that do browse inside it many a times cannot locate the applications they seek.

In the meantime, it's heartening to know that in July, the Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 upgrade campaign running for free will end, while further according to Microsoft, it'll also be the time for the company freeing all PCs of the 'Get Windows 10 application.' This means there likely won't be any accidental upgrades, while everybody would remain safe with the then running Windows edition on their PCs.

Microsoft must right away do the needful to give users the liberty for deciding themselves if their choice is for jumping to version 10 of Windows, instead of employing malware tactics for making them opt for the upgrade.
