    Windows 10 pop up?


    Does anyone know if this windows 10 upgrade popup will pop up on windows 7? We have an agency full of click happy people, and the software and sites we use to do our job are not even compatible with windows 8 and the last thing we need it them seeing a "free" upgrade.

    Will this popup occur on windows 7 machines? Do the users have to click anything in order for the popup to appear or will it just show up?

    not sure about 7 - but the tray icon has been appearing after a windows update on 8.. If you manage the update before deployment to the pc's you may be able to block the update and messages.. the popup allows you to reserve the upgrade, meaning if you reserve the update it will download when available.. other wise you have to just select it through windows update..

    Thanks, yea, I have only noticed it on Windows 8 and I had to click the start button icon near the tray. Do you know which update is pushing this? Be nice to block that update, as our users cannot even handle Windows 7 so them upgrading will be a nightmare.

    Ok, thank you. I would imagine that it isn't its own update, but pushed out through another update package. Thanks!

    I have a virtual machine running Windows 7 Basic, and I had the pop-up. My wife also had the pop on her laptop, which runs Windows 7 Home Premium.
