    Get Windows 10 app will be removed from Windows 7/8.1 after July 29


    “Get Windows 10” app will be removed from Windows 7/8.1 after July 29th upgrade offer ends

    Earlier today, Microsoft confirmed that the Windows 10 free upgrade offer would be ending on July 29th this year, meaning after that date, anybody wishing to upgrade to Windows 10 will need to pay a price. However, nothing has been said regarding the “Get Windows 10” app, which has been annoying many users with upgrade prompts since its debut around a year ago.

    So, I asked Microsoft for a comment regarding the “Get Windows 10” app, specifically asking if the app will be removed after July 29th. Here’s what I got back:

    “Details are still being finalized, but on July 29th the Get Windows 10 app that facilitates the easy upgrade to Windows 10 will be disabled and eventually removed from PCs worldwide. Just as it took time to ramp up and roll out the Get Windows 10 app, it will take time to ramp it down.”

    I'll believe it after the GWX updates have stopped showing up in my W7 update list (i.e. don't appear for a few months).

    Thank goodness, that should stop some of the flame wars over those types of tactics.

    No need to install 3rd party programs to do so. :)
