Restart computer not updating settings

Microsoft has simplified and automated the Windows Update process at the expense of transparency.

The Settings app only features a simplified version of the options available to you.

If you would like to specify for how long an upgrade should be deferred, you’ll have to work with the Group Policy Editor and use a new setting introduced with the November Upgrade.

In Windows 10, updates are mandatory and more automatized than in previous Windows versions.

Some Windows 10 editions include the option to defer upgrades for a limited time.

Note that you can even delay updates for up to four weeks.

You will see that using the Group Policy Editor, you can defer upgrades for a maximum of eight months.

According to Microsoft representative Hammoudi Samir, this is in addition to the four months upgrades are deferred when the option in the Settings app is selected.

Interestingly, you can temporarily Pause Upgrades and Updates until the next monthly update rolls around.

Go to Settings All Windows 10 editions should feature the option to Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows.

When selected, you will receive updates for Microsoft applications, such as Microsoft Office or Edge.

Select the one you would like to remove and click Uninstall in the menu on top.
