Meanwhile, Yahoo Tech published that PCs will automatically download Windows 10 this week. Recently, Microsoft changed the settings of system upgrade from an "optional" update to a "recommended" one. However, users can rest assured that the tech company will not automatically install the new system. It will just be downloaded and readied for installation.
The files for the new operating system will download quietly in the background, and users will have to agree to a dialogue box to install the upgrades.
One of the advantages of using Windows 10 is the opportunity to run the system on multiple devices. An example is buying an app that can be run on a phone, PC, or a Xbox console. The new system also allows users to access the OneDrive and Skype easier.

Some tech experts said the Microsoft's campaign is similar to how Apple pushes its users to upgrade to the latest iPhone and Mac systems. By doing that, app developers know they can release new software without worrying about older devices that will leave behind.
