Today, almost every Windows machine with Windows Updates enabled will see the notifications prompting the user to install Windows 10. These notifications are very good if you want to install Windows 10, but if you actually like Windows 7 or 8.1 or use software not yet compatible, then the notifications become incredibly annoying and almost malware like.
There’s a few ways to remove the Windows 10 update notifications, one of the ways is below.
MODIFYING THE REGISTRY CAN CAUSE STABILITY ISSUES AS WELL AS PREVENTING WINDOWS FROM WORKING COMPLETELY.
Devon Tech Service is not responsible for any damaged caused to your system by following these steps.
- Open Regedit (by typing “regedit” into the Windows Start Menu searchbar and clicking on the icon);
- Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade;
- Find AllowOSUpgrade (if it doesn’t exist, create it: right-click, new, create DWORD (32-bit) value, rename AllowOSUpgrade) and double-click. Set value to 0;
- Then, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade;
- Find ReservationsAllowed (again, if it doesn’t exist, create it. Same method as above) and set value to 0;
- Restart Windows.
The “Upgrade to Windows 10” pop-up can also be disabled, if you haven’t already:
- In Regedit, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\GWX;
- Create DWORD (32-bit) value DisableGWX and set the value data to 1.
