Windows 10 is the latest version of the OS, and Microsoft has been significantly successful in the rollout. The tech giant has been asking users again and again to leave Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 for updating to Windows 10. However, a lot of users have accused the company of installing Windows 10 on their computers without permission.

To give a defensive explanation for the same, Microsoft CMO Chris Capossela said that Microsoft wants to keep its Windows users secure, which is why the company wants the users to upgrade to Windows 10, which is the most secure version of Windows till date. Capossela also said that the company won’t be able to port everybody to the new version without “angering some people.”

But the CMO did mention that users are asked whether they want to install Windows 10 or not. Also, downgrade is possible to the previous version if the users don’t like Windows 10.

From early 2016, Microsoft will start pushing users towards the Windows 10 update more aggressively. The update will be recommended in Windows Update as well. By using this approach, Microsoft hopes that more users will shift from Windows 7 and 8.1 to Windows 10 for free.
