Microsoft to remove Get Windows 10 app after the free upgrade offer ends

One of the major headaches for computers running Windows 7 and Windows 8 is "get Windows 10 app" aka GWX.Sometimes, it prompts the user to start the upgrade to windows 10 and gives the option like "Start the upgrade now" and "Schedule it tonight"
This means the user cannot cancel the upgrade and there is no easy way to schedule/cancel the update.
But as the Free upgrade offer is valid till 29th of July this year and the users would have to pay afterwards,Microsoft has said that the facility to upgrade to windows 10 will be disabled and eventually would be removed from PC's worldwide.Though it can take some time.Here is what is written on Winbeta:
Details are still being finalized, but on July 29th the Get Windows 10 app that facilitates the easy upgrade to Windows 10 will be disabled and eventually removed from PCs worldwide. Just as it took time to ramp up and roll out the Get Windows 10 app, it will take time to ramp it down.
So that means it is good news for windows 7 and 8 users that they would not be nagged to upgrade to windows 10.Personally,I haven't encountered any issues with Windows 10 from start but there are reasons why people don't wish to upgrade.


Although there is no comment whether the free upgrade offer would extend,only the time would tell.
