Microsoft is pushing for the adoption of Windows 10 for users who have their Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 OS update set to ‘accept automatic updates’.
The company wants to get as many users to upgrade to the new version before the July deadline.
The company has changed the status for the software upgrade from ‘optional’ to ‘recommended’. Once downloaded it may start installation in the background but the users will be prompted to accept or stop installation, this means that users will not be required to have a physical copy of the new Windows.
PC users will have 31 days to revert their Windows to previous versions if installed. Those not interested in the new version will have to block the update within Windows Update soon.
Windows 7 and 8 or 8.1 users will start seeing the change in the coming weeks.
The new software requires between 3.5GB and 6GB of storage space.
The operating system which has so far received positive reviews, has been installed on 200 million devices by end of 2015.
