Microsoft Making Windows 10 An Automatic Update Next Year

By Aglaia Staff

Microsoft is making changes to the way they deliver Windows 10 to consumers, following a successful three-month launch period where the operating system has been installed on over 110 million devices.

The first part of Microsoft’s new Windows 10 update delivery system is to post the operating system in Windows Update as an ‘Optional Update’. This makes it easy for people to update from Windows 7 or 8.1 by simply browsing through the list of available updates and selecting to download Windows 10.

While Windows 10 will soon be posted in Windows Update, the bigger change is coming in early 2016, when Microsoft will change its listing from an ‘Optional Update’ to a ‘Recommended Update’. This will cause Windows 10 to be downloaded and installed automatically on every system where automatic updates are enabled.
