After ‘tricking’ users into upgrade, Microsoft has now repented

by Chi Ibe

Over the past few days, the world has been mad at Microsoft for forcing people to upgrade to Windows 10.

It did this by flipping the functions of the pop-up window. Instead of clicking to cancelling, users who clicked yes were made to agree to the upgrade.

After the outcry, the company has stated that “customer feedback” has pushed it to provide “an additional opportunity for cancelling the upgrade”.

“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,” it told the BBC.

“If the customer wishes to continue with their upgrade at the designated time, they can click ‘OK’ or close the notifications with no further action needed.”

Microsoft had promised last year that it would get 1 billion people to use Windows 10 by 2018 – putting it under pressure to deliver those tough numbers
