Microsoft pushes “recommended update” for Windows 10
February 2, 2016 Leave a comment
Microsoft, on Monday, switched Windows 10 from being an “optional update” in Windows Update to being a “recommended update,” according to a report.
The status change likely means that some Windows 7/Windows 8.1 users will experience this notice in the form of a surprise, namely an unexpected upgrade to Windows 10. Traditionally, Windows Update served as just a patching mechanism, rather than an operating system upgrade solution, but Microsoft switched things around with Windows 10.
This will affect workgroup computers as well as Professional SKU computers in a domain where they are relying on Windows Update and not WSUS or other updating software.
