Disable the 8.1 update notification in Windows 8?

5 posts in this topic

Sometimes on startup I get randomly told to go to store and upgrade to 8.1, but I don't want to and I'm tired of this. Is there any way to disable this particular notification or even all Metro notifications?

it should work, I simply revert the setting from this update:

Update is available that enables a notification to be displayed that helps you update Windows 8 or Windows RT to Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1
