Microsoft Changes Windows 10 Upgrade to Recommended

Microsoft continues to push really hard to upgrade users to Windows 10, and this new step is likely to catch out many that have been putting off the upgrade.

Microsoft’s Windows 10 is switching its status from Optional to Recommended. What this means is that if you’ve been putting off the update, for whatever reason, such as when convenient for you, and you have Windows 10 set to automatically install updates, Windows 10 will download and install automatically. The result is that you’ll waste an hour or so while waiting for the upgrade to take place. Clearly, if you’re out and about on a limited bandwidth plan this is going to hurt.

You’d better get ready to help your friends and colleagues.
