Microsoft was earlier criticized by lot of users for its forced push upgrade to Windows 10, the company’s latest operating system. The Get Windows 10 App which the company developed to upgrade from Windows 7, 8.1 to Windows 10 downloaded necessary files for users without the consent of the users.

This was heavily criticized by the users since lot of them complained of running out of storage space or bandwidth as the Get Windows 10 App downloaded huge gigabytes of data to prepare PC for Windows 10.

The company made several changes to the forced upgrade and prevented the new OS versions to no longer download without users consent. The company confirmed that there will be no more forced upgrades unless users specifically agree with it.

Microsoft had been in trouble earlier due to the forced upgrades which included a lawsuit that the company lost in mid 2016 and the company had to pay $10,000 in damages to one of the Windows users who complained her computer having gone substantially slower which impacted her work.
