Now that Windows 10's free upgrade period is nearly over, you're probably wondering how soon those seemingly inescapable upgrade prompts will go away on Windows 7 and 8.1 PCs. According to Microsoft, you won't have to wait too long. The developer tellsWinBeta that it will start disabling the Get Windows 10 app after July 29th, when it'll cost money to upgrade to Windows 10, and will eventually remove the app entirely. It'll take time to wind things down, Microsoft says. The software could still pester you for a while, then, but you probably won't feel quite so much pressure to upgrade after this summer.
