Deadline for free Windows 10 may be July 29, 2016
Life is going to get a whole lot quieter for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users as Microsoft issues a statement saying that those irritating Windows 10 upgrade notification are coming to an end.
The deadline to upgrade is July 29, and after that Microsoft will stop nagging. MAYBE they will start charging $119 or something. Or not. But they will phase out the nagging, anyway.
However, Ed Bott of ZDNet posted How to lock in your free Windows 10 upgrade .
“If you use the Get Windows 10 tool to install the upgrade, you only have to run Windows 10 long enough to confirm that your license is recorded. As soon as that’s done, go to Settings > Update & security > Recovery, where you’ll find” the option to go back to your previous version. You must do this within 30 days.
