Microsoft backtracks on criticised Windows 10 upgrade tactic

Microsoft has been forced to backtrack on its current tactic to get people to upgrade to Windows 10.

Clicking on the cross symbol to close the 'Get Windows 10' was seemingly enough to agree to download the new OS. This would then result in the upgrade being scheduled. Some have found, as the gif below shows, that Windows is perfectly willing to update at the least opportune moment.

A report from the BBC says that Microsoft has implemented a way for users to cancel a scheduled upgrade after receiving plenty of customer feedback. Microsoft said, "We've added another notification that confirms the time of the scheduled upgrade and provides the customer an additional opportunity for cancelling or rescheduling the upgrade."

This is a step in the right direction, though many users have rightly pointed out that there should be a way to decline the upgrade and not be bothered again.
