Windows users are now getting a timer to alert those who are yet to upgrade for free to do so before the expiration of the July 29 deadline as Microsoft ends free windows 10 upgrade.
Most Windows 7/8 and 8.1 users are familiar with the yellow triangle on the notification bar with an exclamation mark inside which pops up the Windows 10 upgrade window. The “alert” or “warning” always prompt you to upgrade which is kind of fixing the “bad” Window 8.
Now with few days left to avail Windows 10 free upgrade offer for Windows 7/8/8.1 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.
Looks like the users who do not want Windows 10 will now breathe a heave of sigh after July 29, when they will no longer be seeing the annoying alert notification as it appears “Microsoft has been pushing Windows 10 down their throat”.
