    Microsoft starts force upgrading more Windows 10 PCs using machine learning


    In the coming weeks or months, Microsoft says it will begin installing Windows 10 version 20H2 ‘October 2020 Update’ on devices running outdated versions of the OS. Microsoft is apparently using ‘machine learning’ to automatically upgrade the compatible hardware without user permission to ensure a “smooth experience”.

    Windows 10 version 1903 has already reached the end of service and version 1909 will be discontinued soon. Windows 10 version 2004 is also set to lose support later this year, and your device will be automatically updated to the most recent version of the OS i.e the October 2020 Update, whether you like it or not.

    “We are increasing the number of devices that are approaching end of service to update automatically to Windows 10, version 20H2,” Microsoft noted in a support document last updated on February 23.

    Predictive models will be used to more accurately update the outdated devices and Microsoft previously confirmed that it has already seen promising results using machine learning.

    Of course, Microsoft will avoid restarting your device at inconvenient times like when you’re using the machine and are in the middle of something.

    If you don’t want Microsoft to force upgrade the device, make sure that you’re running Windows 10 version 2004 or version 20H2.

    Users of version 2004 will be required to make the switch to Windows 10 version 20H2 or newer in the second half of 2021, which means they still have time.

    It’s also worth noting that affected users will be notified of the forced upgrade via a notification on the Windows Update page. You can also manually trigger the update and restart the device whenever you want to head of the deadline.

    October 2020 Update bug status


    Windows 10 20H2, which is the latest version of the OS, began rolling out in October with a new theme-aware Start menu, Alt + Tab improvements and several annoying bugs.

    Microsoft has already fixed most of the critical bugs in version 20H2 with the January and February cumulative updates.

    At the moment, Microsoft is focusing on Windows 10 21H1, which is expected to launch in May or June, followed by the big Sun Valley update in October/November.

    Microsoft Hit by First Successful Windows 10 Forced Upgrade Lawsuit

    Microsoft has been hit by the first successful lawsuit over its forced Windows 10 upgrade. The first of possibly many, Teri Goldstein from California, successfully sued Microsoft for $10,000 in damages and legal fees over its deceptively designed Windows 10 upgrade software, which automatically downloaded and upgraded her computer's Windows 7 installation almost without the consent of the user. She convinced the court that the upgrade made her computer slower, and that she lost business due to the upgrade process and the slowing down of her computer. Microsoft dropped its appeal and paid up.

    Microsoft is heavily criticized for the way it distributes its free Windows 10 upgrade for PCs with Windows 7 and Windows 8. What started out as an optional upgrade, quickly evolved into an almost unavoidable upgrade that forces itself upon the users, through clever design of the upgrade software's user interface. Microsoft recently changed Windows 10 upgrade into a "recommended update" for Windows 7/8, making users with auto-install for recommended updates discover that their machines have been upgraded almost without their consent. Could this be the first of many successful lawsuits over this issue at least in a precedent-driven American civil justice system?

    Installing Windows 10 on New PC?

    I'm going to be building a new PC on Christmas and want to install Windows 10 on it. I have Windows 10 on my current PC, which I installed upgrading from 8.1 with the files on a USB. How do I go about installing a clean copy of Windows 10 on this new PC? I think I recall something about installing it once makes Microsoft recognize your hardware, but since this will be a PC I'm not sure what steps I need to take. Do I need to go 8.1 -> 10 or is there a method of going directly to 10?
