Microsoft Will Remove "Get Windows 10" App From Your PC After July 29
According to a report from WinBeta, Microsoft has confirmed that they will start removing the "Get Windows 10" app from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 systems after July 29.
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.
When Microsoft launched Windows 10, the company announced that the OS would be available as a free upgrade to Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users for the first year. After the free upgrade time, any user who wants to upgrade to Windows 10 will need to pay a price for the update. With that announcement, the company has installed "Get Windows 10" app through Windows Update, which shows seemingly inescapable upgrade prompts urging users to upgrade their systems to Windows 10.
Now that the free upgrade period is going to end by July 29, Microsoft has said that they will start removing the app entirely. Those eligible users who do not upgrade for free by then will have to pay at least $119 to get an upgrade to Windows 10.
The free upgrade offer will end on July 29 and we want to make sure you don't miss out. After July 29th, you’ll be able to continue to get Windows 10 on a new device, or purchase a full version of Windows 10 Home for $119.
Of course, it will take some time for Microsoft to release an update to remove the program, but at least you will not be pressured to upgrade after this summer. If you are on the wall about upgrading to Windows 10, then please note that Windows 10 has matured nicely and is really worth the time and bandwidth it takes to upgrade. In addition, the upgrade is free and if you do not like it, you can always install your old Windows.
