Don't want windows 10?

Microsoft is offering Windows 10 as a free upgrade for eligible Windows 7 and 8/8.1 users. But it's not necessarily a good move.

By Derek Gillett posted Friday 3 June, 2016




Windows 10 is the newest upgrade to Windows. Most people using Windows 7 and 8 currently have a free option to upgrade, that will end on 29 July.

Now don't get me wrong here, it's a great update and for those of you who don't mind change and are keen to keep up-to-date with the latest, the upgrade is worthwhile. BUT, some people just like their computer the way it is, and have ended up inadvertently proceeding with the upgrade. Also, it's worthwhile checking that all your programs will continue to work under Windows 10. To do that, you'll need to go to the manufacturers website for each program you use, and check their system requirements. Most mainstream programs will be fine, but if you use some old or niche software, you may be out of luck.

Note, if you are already on Windows 10 but don't like it, and importantly, you upgraded within the last 30 days, you can revert back to your old Windows. Go to Settings > Updates & security > Recovery > Go back to Windows 7/8/8.1).

To ensure the Windows 10 upgrade doesn't occur, can use a tool called Never10.
