Microsoft's free upgrade to Windows 10 ends July 29th

If you haven't upgraded to Windows 10 yet, Microsoft has likely been reminding you (repeatedly) that you can upgrade to Windows 10 for free. However, its most intrusive notification yet will let you know that the free upgrade ends on July 29th.

The message is a full screen notification which can pop up at any time regardless of what programs or applications you may be running, and states that it is,'Sorry for interrupting, but this is important'. It then says that you have until the end of the month to upgrade for free.

You have four options when confronted by this screen, to 'Upgrade now' (the brightest button by far), 'Remind me later' - or the slightly less prominent options in the bottom left hand corner, 'Notify me three more times' or 'Do not notify me again.'

If you're thinking about upgrading, make sure that all of your programs, applications and systems will remain working on Windows 10. If they don't, it's important that you look into replacements for these applications or find out if it is possible to upgrade them. 

You should also think about any printers or scanners that you use infrequently, as these need to be able to work with Windows 10 too. You can reverse the process and return to Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 up to 31 days after Windows 10 has installed, but the process is time consuming and not recommended.

If you're uncertain about whether to upgrade or not, please don't hesitate to give us a call on 0191 482 0444. If you've already upgraded, make sure you've checked the default Windows 10 privacy settings.

The Transcendit Way

Transcendit understand that when you choose to work with us, whether we're taking care of your IT, app or web development, you're trusting us with part of your business. So whether we're looking after your computers, phone systems or servers we always do things 'the Transcendit way'.

The whole of our team adhere to the same values, beliefs and policies - the principles that were written when Transcendit first formed in 2000. Whether you come to us for cloud services or recovery backup you can be confident that you'll always receive the same excellent service.

The Transcendit way outlines how we do business; following the same straightforward principles with every client and customer, regardless of how big or small they may be.

That means we get to know you and your business. We offer you a friendly, professional and efficient service, and we'll always be honest with you.
We understand that not everybody speaks fluent IT, so we try to explain things in a way that is simple and clear. We always spend as much time as is necessary explaining things to you.
If you need to talk to us about something, no matter how insignificant, we are only ever a phone call away – and we’re never too busy to make you a cup of tea and have a sit down with you in person.
We understand how frustrating it can be when things are late. When we schedule an appointment with you, we are there when you’re expecting us. If something prevents us from getting there, we always call you in advance to let you know.
Sometimes things can go wrong, but we never lie to you or try to cover something up. If things go askew we tell you what’s happened and how we plan to prevent it affecting your business.
We want you to continuously benefit from working with us. We regularly discuss your business and make suggestions for improving systems and processes wherever we can – but we never try to push you into a purchase.
When we quote a fixed price, that's always the amount we charge – you won’t find any nasty surprises on a bill from us. If you are paying by time and materials, we inform you if our approximations could change.
We understand the importance of privacy for your business and your customers. We respect the confidentiality of your data, and we will never pass on your information to third parties.
We appreciate it when you take the time to give us feedback. A system called CustomerSure records our client's responses, so you can trust that our reviews are from real people.

Your team have been superb! Quick to respond. No hassle. They just get on with the job. After a well-planned and executed Microsoft 365 migration I have been firing out emails as teething problems have arisen and they have turned the requests around pronto. Not to mention being carried out in a friendly yet professional manner. Just amazing performance! Rosie Malcolm-MacEwan
