Microsoft (MSFT) prepares to roll out new update options for Windows 10, The single most common complaint I’ve heard about Windows 10 is its lack of control over update timing. That’s annoying enough for monthly security updates, which typically take just a few minutes to install. But when a feature update kicks off its installation without warning, it can render the PC unusable for an hour or more. In two previous feature updates, Windows 10 added options to defer the installation of updates and to pause them temporarily.
These settings were primarily aimed at enterprise admins, however, with the most useful options requiring changes to Group Policy. The Windows 10 Creators Update, due for release this spring, consolidates those update controls into the Settings app, adding some knobs and levers that make them much easier to manage. You’ll pay for the privilege, though: the new update controls are accessible only for the Pro/Enterprise/Education editions.
The entry-level edition, Windows 10 Home, offers none of the new update controls. Narrow down four to firm performance, its weekly performance was 0.15% and monthly performance was 2.09%.
