Two new screens in Windows may show up…

With the Windows 10 free upgrade just a month away, Microsoft is giving you some reminders [or advertising].

In the first message, we have an upgrade reminder:


You will not receive the one above if any of below are true:

  • You have a recent version of the “Get Windows 10” app installed.
  • You have selected the Do not notify me again option.
  • Your computer is detected to be incompatible with Windows 10.
  • You have previously uninstalled Windows 10 after you upgrade.
  • Your Windows 10 installation failed and rolled back.
  • You have hidden the “Get Windows 10” app notifications.
  • You have disabled the Windows 10 upgrade or you have disabled the offer screen through registry key settings.

This message appears when you unlock Windows through the end of the upgrade offer, and reoccurs three days later if you select the Remind me later option.

This message applies if you have Windows 7 with service pack 1 or Windows 8.1.

The second screen below will appear if you have Windows 8 – not Windows 8.1. If so, you are not getting any further updates [from Microsoft at least]. To fix the issue, upgrade to Windows 8.1 via the Windows Store or upgrade to Windows 10 [more technical and messy!].
