Microsoft pushes “recommended update” for Windows 10

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.

Read by blog here to see how to disable the upgrading of Windows 10.
