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.
