Microsoft has its eyes set on its goal: 1 billion Windows 10 download by 2017. So far, the software giants has already gone to great lengths to attain that, even going as far as making the latest version of its operating system, Windows 10, free for all users who got a legit copy of older version of Windows.
But despite all of the new features, a totally revamped user interface, and the fact that it doesn’t cost a dime to upgrade to the new version, there are still a huge bulk of PC users that have not upgraded to Windows 10.
As a matter of fact Windows 7 still remains as the king when it comes to worldwide market share with more than 50 percent. Meanwhile, Windows 10 has only garnered a modest 11.85% since its consumer release back in the latter half of 2015.
This kind of adoption rate is obviously alarming for the Redmond-based company. As such, Microsoft is taking on a more aggressive approach on pushing the update to its patrons in the form of ‘Recommended Update’.
That’s right, Windows 10 update will automatically be deployed on your machine through the Windows Update Tool. This is well and good for users who are eventually planning to upgrade to the new OS. However,for those who are perfectly fine with the older version of Windows, they can still choose to opt out of this by interrupting the download, or totally blocking it all together thanks to a handful of guides found across the web.
