Microsoft: we’re not forcing users to upgrade to Windows 10

Microsoft commented on the people’s discontent with the policy of upgrading to Windows 10. The company said that users the operating systems Windows 7 and 8 have the opportunity to refuse the installation of the new OS.

“Upgrading to Windows 10 is the choice that we provide to users so they can take advantage of a more secure and productive operating system ā€“ said the “Russian newspaper” in the company. ā€“ Using a notification system periodically reminds about the update, which the user can move at a convenient time, or cancel”.

In Microsoft added that the update procedure is constantly being improved based on user feedback.

Previously, users of operating systems Windows 7 and Windows 8 complained of a strange feature of the Windows update alerts. Microsoft changed the pop-up window, calling to upgrade to Windows 10: when you try to close the window was to happen automatic update of the operating system. User just put before the fact that his computer will be forcibly updated.

Later users do not have to close the window to update. If before pressing the x in the upper right corner of the window is counted as the user’s consent to install Windows 10, then Microsoft has removed even the illusion of failure from the update. Now the dialog box updates to contain only two options: to install the update now or schedule a date. Moreover, time for transition to “ten” can be specified only once, and then modify it or to postpone the installation of Windows 10 will not happen.
