How To Remove ‘Get Windows 10’ App From Your System


Windows 10 is set for release on July 29, 2015 and we all know that Microsoft is taking this new version and pushing it aggressively to Windows users with the Get Windows 10 app. While a lot of users have reserved a copy of the new OS, there are some who aren’t on-board with the idea and the little Windows icon in their system tray is nothing more than annoying bloatware. If you’re one of the many people looking to get rid of this app or put it out of sight, here’s how you can do just that.

Hiding The System Tray Icon

This is the equivalent of sweeping dust under the rug but the icon is out of sight and no longer asking for your attention. Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Notification Area Icons and set the icon to always remain hidden.

Remove The App From Your System

The app can be removed from your system by uninstalling the update that installed the Get Windows 10 app in the first place. Go to Control Panel\System and Security\Windows Update and click on Installed Updates at the bottom left. Find update number KB3035583, right-click it, and select Uninstall.

Let An App Do It For You

This is perhaps the easiest way to remove the Get Windows 10 app. Simply download and execute I don’t Want Windows 10 and the app will be gone in a matter of clicks. Of course, the app is a ‘use at your own risk’ deal but it doesn’t break anything and is open source.
