Now in the past we have seen how Microsoft has aggressively pushed the update to users, but recently there have been user reports in which there are some who have woken up and rudely discovered that their computers have updated themselves to Windows 10 without their permission.

Prior to this, Microsoft had reassured users that even though the update might download in the background, users will still need to give the greenlight before the actual update happens. “Depending upon your Windows Update settings, this may cause the upgrade process to automatically initiate on your device. Before the upgrade changes the OS of your device, you will be clearly prompted to choose whether or not to continue.”

Now we can’t say for sure what kind of settings these users had, but we’re sure that regardless of their settings, these users would have preferred a heads up all the same.
