How To Adjust Windows Insider Settings on Windows 10 Redstone Builds

How To Adjust Windows Insider Settings on Windows 10 Redstone Builds

The "Get Windows 10" offer (usually abbreviated as GWX, where the X is actually the Roman numeral 10) first appeared late past year.

Ever since Windows 10 arrived, Microsoft has been attempting what some might call Win10 upgrade tricks to get Windows 7 and 8.1 users to install that free upgrade.

Microsoft has been accused of "dirty tricks" after changing the way in which users upgrade to the latest version of its Windows operating system.

Since Windows 10 is now labelled as a "recommended" update by Microsoft, Windows users who have security upgrades automatically enabled are receiving pop-up alerts saying that their PCs have updates scheduled. Once a customer's upgrade is scheduled, they will receive a notification that states the time their upgrade is scheduled for, with options to reschedule or cancel if they wish.

Microsoft said on its website: "If you click on OK or on the red "X", you're all set for the upgrade and there is nothing further to do".

But this time around, clicking on the controversial cross will start the upgrade.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)'s push to make people download the Windows 10 software is certainly not winning them any admirers.

"The Close button on the title bar should have the same effect as the Cancel or Close button within the dialog box".

For months now, Microsoft has done everything in its power to shove Windows 10 down your throat.

The change to the close button have been condemned by a number of commenters online.

The other main button on the pop-up is a large "OK" button that also accepts the upgrade.

The only way to get rid of it is to change the update time manually. Although it's specifically aimed at schools, this guide can also come in handy to consumers and enterprises, who can learn new things on how to upgrade to Windows 10 should they need to perform the process on more than one computer.

Windows 10 is running on 300 million active devices across the world.

Now, in all future Windows 10 Anniversary Update test builds, the Windows Insider app has been deprecated and will no longer be used to manage your Windows Insider Program enrollment.
