GWX Control Panel Review

Sven Sorensen

A useful tool that can disable Microsoft's push to Windows 10

A review of GWX Control Panel by Sven Sørensen

GWX Control Panel is a useful tool which can help stop Microsoft from pushing you to upgrade to Windows 10.

The application has a simple premise, but does include a number of different options which can both save you bandwidth and more importantly, hassle.

The main screen of GWX Control Panel includes a list of the programs running in the background which are there to nudge you into installing Windows 10. GWX Control Panel can disable these programs and can also disable system upgrades inside of the Windows Update application.

Other options include a monitor mode for monitoring whether Microsoft is downloading Windows 10 installation files and GWX Control Panel can also disable all operating system upgrades in Windows Update.

GWX Control Panel features and highlights:
  • Locates and deletes hidden Windows 10 installer files that Microsoft secretly downloads to your computer
  • Easily deletes hard-to-remove program files that are known to prepare your computer for Windows 10 upgrades
  • Alerts you if your Windows Update settings change from one of the safer "download only" or "check only" options to "automatically install"
  • Generates enhanced diagnostic reports that give you detailed information on any settings GWX Control Panel finds that leave you open to unwanted Windows 10 behavior

GWX Control Panel is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from computer utilities without restrictions. GWX Control Panel is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
