If you are one of the many users annoyed by Microsoft's "Windows 10 Free Upgrade" prompts, you can now get rid of them.

You may need to restart your computer after installing the upgrade.

Windows 10, launched in 2015, is the latest release of Microsoft's desktop operating system. 15 months ago, in an effort to make it as easier to upgrade to its new operating system, Microsoft introduced a Get Windows 10 app for Windows 7 and 8.1 that allowed users to reserve their upgrade.
