Windows 10 upgrade will soon be easier to reject

Microsoft is finally ending the malware-like trickery of the "Get Windows 10" upgrade offer that's shown to Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users.

Critically, pressing the X in the corner of the window will have the same effect as the decline option.

Microsoft's statement on the change, attributable to Terry Myerson, executive vice president of the Windows and Devices Group, reads:

Our most important priority for Windows 10 is for everyone to love Windows.

Since we introduced a new upgrade experience for Windows 10, we've received feedback that some of our valued customers found it confusing.

We've been working hard to incorporate their feedback and this week, we'll roll out a new upgrade experience with clear options to upgrade now, schedule a time, or decline the free offer.

The aggression of the Windows 10 upgrade offer has been causing discontent and annoyance since its introduction, and while many people have taken advantage of the upgrade, there are plenty who don't want it and don't like being nagged by it.
