GWX Control Panel Description

Even before releasing Windows 10 in July 2015, Microsoft made sure that every user out there was informed about the perks of upgrading to the new OS. This was achieved not only via aggressive marketing, but also by relying on a dedicated app called ‘Get Windows 10’ (or GWX, in short) that would constantly remind people to reserve and then to upgrade to Windows 10.

Prevent GWX from running on your PC

As useful as this utility might seem, having its icon displayed in the system tray at all times ended up bothering a lot of users, and this is where GWX Control Panel comes in.

This software solution can help you stop GWX from running on your computer, either temporarily or permanently. The best thing of all is that its interface is kept as intuitive as possible meaning that even novices can still enjoy its functions.

Hide GWX icon

Since this is a portable application, it does not need to be installed on the host PC to run smoothly. Instead, you can just launch it and wait until it looks for GWX on your computer – once it detects it, it displays the actions you can take.

If you plan to upgrade to Windows 10 soon, simply hiding the icon could prove to be the ideal option. Nonetheless, you need to keep in mind that it is a temporary solution and that the GWX icon will be displayed once again after OS reboot.

Disable GWX for good

Another function of GWX Control Panel is to get you rid of the ‘Get Windows 10’ app for an indefinite period. This means that you can restart your PC as many times as you like, and it will not be shown in the system tray again.

If you decide you want to upgrade the OS at a later time in the future, you can run GWX Control Panel once more and re-enable the icon with a simple mouse click.

All in all, GWX Control Panel can come in handy to all those who are annoyed about the notification icon urging them upgrade to Windows 10 and who want to make it go away quickly and easily.
