Windows will stop automatically updating. We all know that this used to happen just when we needed the computer for something extremely important, right?
Well, it seems that from now on, Microsoft makes the OS more user-friendly. Users will be able to pause a new software installation.
More control over updates
SlashGear reports that this feature will provide “additional clarity and control over the update experience,” the newly extended pause is part of some changes that Microsoft is making in the Windows 10 May 2019 update.
“In previous Windows 10 feature update rollouts, the update installation was automatically initiated on a device once our data gave us confidence that device would have a great update experience,” Microsoft said.
The tech giant continued and explained that “Beginning with the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, users will be more in control of initiating the feature OS update.”
From now on, it looks like for all editions of Windows 10, there will be an option to pause both feature and monthly updates as well.
Each of the pauses will last for seven days, and users will be able to delay this for up to five times.
After 35 days, users will eventually have to install the new update before they get the chance to pause it again.
You can also update here and now
There’s also the other side of the coin, according to the same online publication.
There will also be available the ability to update ‘there and then’ as SlashGear puts it.
There is a new Download and install now option available in Windows Update Settings page, and this will trigger the installation right on the spot. Users will not have to wait for it to be prompted.
According to the tech giant, this will be available by the end of May for users who are running Windows 10 version 1803 or 1809.
