    Windows 10 upgrade: How-to information on scheduling and notifications


    Windows 10 is the best, most secure Windows ever – and it’s easy to get your free upgrade. If you’re a Windows 7 or 8.1 customer, be sure to complete your upgrade before the free upgrade offer expires on July 29, 2016.

    To check your status or make a change to your upgrade schedule or notifications, see the instructions below. Additional frequently asked questions about the free upgrade can be found here.

    You may have received a notification (like the pop-up screen shown here) about upgrading your PC to Windows 10.




    This notification means your Windows 10 upgrade will occur at the time indicated, unless you select either Upgrade now or “Click here to change upgrade schedule or cancel scheduled upgrade”. If you click on OK or on the red “X”, you’re all set for the upgrade and there is nothing further to do.

    When you close this pop up, your PC will upgrade at the scheduled time. Based on customer feedback, in the most recent version of the Get Windows 10 (GWX) app, we confirm the time of your scheduled upgrade and provide you an additional opportunity for cancelling or rescheduling the upgrade.




    Changing your scheduled upgrade

    To change your scheduled upgrade, use the Get Windows 10 (GWX) app to follow these steps.

    1. First close all open GWX dialogs, then relaunch the GWX app by clicking the Windows icon at the bottom of your screen:
    2. Once you’ve relaunched GWX, you’ll see one of the following messages:

      Screen: Windows 10 is a Recommended Update for this PC
      Screen: Microsoft recommends upgrading to Windows 10


      From these screens, you can manage your Windows 10 upgrade schedule.
      • To schedule or start your upgrade, follow the instructions on the screen.
      • If you don’t want to schedule your upgrade, you can select either “Click here to change upgrade schedule or cancel scheduled upgrade” or you can click the red "X" to close the window. (If you receive a pop up that says “You’re set!”, click the link at the bottom to reschedule or cancel the upgrade.)

      Screen: You signed up for Windows 10, and it's ready!

      If you receive this screen:
      • To schedule or start your upgrade, follow the instructions on the screen.
      • If you don’t want to schedule your upgrade, click the link to “change upgrade schedule or cancel scheduled upgrade”. Then select the Cancel scheduled upgrade option on the following screen.

    If your upgrade was previously scheduled, you will see the message, Windows 10 is a Recommended Update for this PC. To cancel your scheduled upgrade, click the link to “change upgrade schedule or cancel scheduled upgrade”. Then select the Cancel scheduled upgrade option on the following screens.





    When you schedule your upgrade, you will receive a reminder 15 minutes before the upgrade starts. When the reminder appears, you can click I need more time to reschedule or cancel the upgrade.



    Turning off notifications

    If you no longer want to receive pop-up notifications for the free upgrade offer, you can turn off notifications and hide the GWX app. If you do not wish to upgrade, then prior to taking the following steps to turn off notifications, you should also confirm that you have canceled any scheduled upgrade by following the instructions above. (Note: If your upgrade is already scheduled, the reminder that occurs 15 minutes before the upgrade starts will appear even if notifications have been turned off.)

    1. Right-click (or press and hold) the Taskbar, and then select Properties.
    2. On the Taskbar tab, go down to the Notification area and select Customize…
    3. In the Notification Area Icons window, for the GWX icon, select Hide icon and notifications.

    Microsoft has implemented a change to the way the Windows 10 upgrade is offered to Windows 7 and 8.1 computers, scheduling the install of the new OS without previously asking users.

    The first time we reported about these scheduled upgrades to Windows 10 was on May 16, but it appears that Microsoft implemented the changes four days earlier, on May 12, according to information provided by the company itself.

    In a recent advisory published by Microsoft, it reveals that the Get Windows 10 app has been updated to schedule upgrades to Windows 10, but at the same time giving users the option to cancel it easily.

    And truth be told, it’s as easy as pressing the “cancel” button if you don’t want to move to Windows 10 because the new upgrade prompts come with an option that reads “Click here to change upgrade schedule or cancel scheduled upgrade.”
