Microsoft Introduces New Windows 10 Upgrade Message

Microsoft had been aggressively marketing it’s all new Windows 10, nudging users of Windows 8 or Windows 7 to upgrade for free. Users got irritated of the frequent pop–ups and after a few complaints, Microsoft decided to mellow down its promotional activities.

Microsoft plans to roll out a new plan this week with an upgrade offering three options namely, “upgrade now,” “choose time” and “decline the free offer.” Previously if a user clicked on the corner ‘X’ to close the pop- up, it would get automatically scheduled. The upgraded version will do away with this particular feature and click on the ‘X’ will now mean that the notification needs to be shut down.

According to Terry Myerson from Microsoft, the upgraded version allows the user to choose a time or decline the free offer. Microsoft from July 30 will start charging $119 for Windows 10 which is a much safer version.
