Starting on June 1st, 2015, millions of PCs and tablets around the world will begin to see the Windows 10 upgrade notification icon in the system tray, on all qualifying devices. That’s because Microsoft has announced that the next version of its operating system will be arriving on July 29.
Now there is a slight chance that some Windows users won’t want to move quickly to the new version of the operating system. Some users might feel they want to stay a little longer with Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, or they feel that Windows 10 isn’t quite ready. For those people, I will show you how you can remove the icon from the system tray and how to cancel your reservation.
The Windows logo icon in the system tray didn’t magically appear on your PC. It was the update KB3035583 that handled the notification preparing your computer for Windows 10.
KB3035583 was originally an update released back in April, Microsoft offered it as an optional update for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 machines. Today, the software maker is changing the priority of the update to “Recommended”, which will force the update to download and install automatically via Windows Update.
