Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) is trying to drive adoption of Windows 10 – the companys newest operating system and key to its cloud business – by making upgrades automatic for some users, according to Business Journals.

Windows 10 will be installed on PCs that are already set to make recommended updates automatically. Its a small tweak, but it has big implications for the Redmond companys cloud strategy.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is banking on Windows 10 to make his cloud-first, mobile-first vision a reality. The operating system works across multiple devices so users can get a desktop experience on a tablet, smartphone or gaming console.

The company wants to reach 1 billion installations within three years. More than 110 million devices were running Windows 10 eight weeks after the launch – a record for the company – but the growth has plateaued.
