As Microsoft gears up to end free upgrades to Windows 10 this summer, the company has also confirmed it will scale back its reminders to upgrade as well. Specifically, the "Get Windows 10" app that periodically prompts Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users to upgrade to Microsoft's latest will be disabled on July 29 and eventually removed.

Microsoft confirmed the news in a statement to WinBeta:

"Details are still being finalized, but on July 29th the Get Windows 10 app that facilitates the easy upgrade to Windows 10 will be disabled and eventually removed from PCs worldwide. Just as it took time to ramp up and roll out the Get Windows 10 app, it will take time to ramp it down."

For those who have no immediate plans to upgrade and find the prompts to be annoying, this should come as good news. If, however, you'd like to secure your upgrade of Windows 10 for free, you still have through July 29 to do so.
