Did Your Computer Upgrade to Windows 10 This Past Weekend Without Your Say-So? Here's How to Undo It

Did Your Computer Upgrade to Windows 10 This Past Weekend Without Your Say-So? Here's How to Undo It

There's been some chatter from users who have been pushed into the latest edition of the Windows operating system, whether they want it or not.

We're here to remind you that you can roll back your operating system. Here's a link to our how-to on rolling back to Windows 8.1 or Windows 7.

Remember, you do have a 30-day window for rolling back your unwanted upgrade.

And you do have the option to get your free Windows 10 upgrade when you're ready -- and no just by July 29, 2016.

As Ed Bott reported, so long as you had the Windows 10 upgrade long enough for Microsoft's servers to associate the product license with your specific hardware, you can roll on back to Windows 8.1 or Windows 7, then upgrade (for free) to Windows 10 when you're ready.
