Never10 1.3.1



Never 10 is a portable tool that gives you control over whether Windows 7 or 8.1 will upgrade itself to Windows 10. Video tutorial available. In July of 2015, Microsoft added features to its Windows Update facility which allow it to be configured, on a machine-by-machine basis, to not forcibly upgrade qualifying Windows 7 and 8.1 operating systems to Windows 10. However, Microsoft did not make this configuration simple. It requires the use of the group policy editor (which is not present in some qualifying systems) and/or the system registry. No installation is required to use this tool.


The most controversial topic around Windows 10 is related to its activity monitoring functions, many arguing that this leads to privacy protection issues.

That is one of the reasons why some users prefer sticking to Windows 7 or Windows 8 instead of upgrading, even if the latest Windows iteration has much more to offer.

Aside from unsolicited Windows 10 upgrade suggestions on Windows 7 and 8, Microsoft pushed some system updates that offer Windows 10 as a recommended update.

Following user requests, since July 2015 Windows Update can be configured but the operation is not simple, requiring one to work with the Group Policy Editor. Never10 makes it a matter of a click.

First of all, Never10 checks the computer to see if the Windows update in July, 2015 is installed, as that allows the custom configuration of the Windows Update settings.

In case an older update is present, users can start downloading and deploying the July release with just a click. Please note that this operation might require a system restart.

The purpose of Never10 is to allow better control over the Windows 10 upgrading process. If automatic OS upgrading is set to ‘enabled’, Never10 notifies users about this and allows them to change this setting with no complications, with just the push of a button.

Re-enabling the automatic Windows upgrade is done just as easy, by pressing on the same button as before.

This is particularly useful to inexperienced users, who would otherwise waste time searching for ways to configure Windows update not to forcefully upgrade their PC to Windows 10.

Never10 is designed to block the automatic upgrade to Windows 10 of machines that run on older OS iterations. All it does is configure the local system to prevent instant upgrading.

This might not be much to experienced users who can do it themselves, but beginners who are happy with their current version of Windows are surely going to appreciate its simplicity.
