Microsoft announce Windows 10 will become a recommended update

Share This Post

So far 110 million devices have upgraded to Windows 10, and in recent days Microsoft has announced it will be changing the way Windows 10 is deployed.  Early next year they are expected to re-categorize Windows 10 from an Optional Update to a Recommended Update within Windows Update.

What does this mean?
This all depends on your Windows Update settings.  It may cause the upgrade process to automatically initiate on your device.  However, you will receive a clear prompt to ask you if would like to continue with the upgrade.

What happens if I’ve upgraded and I don’t like it or none of my applications work?
Microsoft has built in a rollback period of 31 days.  During this time, you will be able to go back to your old Operating System.  We would however, recommend that you take a little bit of time getting used to Windows 10 as this is the future.

If your applications don’t work, then we would advise you speak to the developers to see if there is an upgrade which is compatible.
