9 days to go, Windows 10 gets a timer to alert users about impending deadline
Windows 7/8.1 users get an ‘Alert Icon’ notifying of free Windows 10 scheme ending on July 29If you are a Windows 7/8.1 user, you must be getting a familiar with a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark inside of it when the Windows 10 upgrade window pops up. It means “alert” or “warning”, and that the next thing you should do is click on it to fix it.
With only 9 days left to avail Windows 10 free upgrade offer for Windows 7/8.1 users, Microsoft is now giving all the familiar ‘Alert Icon’ with Get Windows 10 (GWX) app. This looks like Microsoft’s last ditch attempt to make Windows 7/8.1 users upgrade to Windows 10 before the July, 29 deadline.
If you click on the GWX it will open with a countdown timer to July 29 at midnight. The time zone appears to be local.
