In this news update AJR will discuss Windows 10 now auto downloads for Windows 7 and 8.1 users
At the start of the 2016, Microsoft announced Windows 10 was running on 200 million devices. It now looks like Microsoft is eager to make it a much larger number. While the Operating system update has so far been designated as “optional” in the Windows Updates, Microsoft has now changed its standing to “recommended”.
This means that the Windows 10 operating system will automatically download in the background on users Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 systems with the automatic updates activated. Seeing as this is the default setting and the best way to keep the system updated and patched against security risks, thousands of users now stand to have Windows 10 automatically downloaded on their machines.
While the windows 10 download will starts automatically, users will need to actively select whether or not they want to install Windows 10 onto their machines. For those with strict internet download limits, users can also block the download by turning off automatic updates.
