    In the upper right corner [Upgrade to macOS Mojave] . It pops up and stays there.
    Thanks

    I don't believe you can, that's Apple's way of trying to force the upgrade on you

    Why would you not upgrade. This OS is so smooth compared to any other recently. In fact it runs better on my Late 2010 Mac mini than any OS in the last 7 years.

    All I did was google “disable Mojave upgrade notifications.”

    Ah “force you to upgrade.” We’ve come a long way, it would seem, from when users actually had to pay for upgrades to increase the security and abilities of their Apples’ OS.

    OP:

    There's no compelling reason to upgrade to Mojave unless you WANT TO.

    I can think of a possible way to get rid of that message:
    1. the next time it pops up, click upgrade (yes, click it!)
    2. the Mojave OS installer will download into your Applications folder
    3. when the download is complete, the installer will open, but...
    YOU DO NOT HAVE TO RUN IT
    4. Just quit the installer.
    5. Now, you can delete the Mojave OS installer or move it somewhere for storage.

    Now software update will see that you -have- downloaded the Mojave installer, and hopefully it won't pester you any more.

    In my case I have database app that does not work on Mojave. At present can't afford to upgrade it and need to use it to complete a project I am working on.

    OK I can't install it because I have no idea what my password to get into the computer is. How can I find it?
