As it was foretold back in October, Windows 10 has been moved from Optional update status to Recommended. This means for anyone who has Automatic Updates and the "Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates" settings enabled, the upgrade process will begin automatically. If you want to change this, type 'Windows Update settings' in the start menu, click 'Advanced options', and change the aforementioned settings.

Note that although some files will be downloaded regardless of what you do to make upgrading quicker, the upgrade will still not actually take place unless you give it permission to do so.
