Only Windows 10 Professional Users can suspend Windows updates today, but this will change. Windows 10 Home users will soon be able to suspend updates for up to seven days.
This feature should happen to everyone in the next version of Windows 10, code name 19H1, is finished. It should be published around April 2019. Paul Thurrott first noticed this change, and it's something that Microsoft has not mentioned in any Windows Insider blog post.
Of course, there is a limit: you can only suspend updates seven days at a time. To do this, simply go to Settings> Update and Security> Windows Update. There is now a "Suspend updates for 7 days" option and it runs on Windows 10 Home.
Windows 10 does not install any updates while it is paused. However, when you cancel the update update, either at the end of the seven-day period, or if you click the "Resume Updates" button, Windows will immediately check for updates. day and install them.
This is not a way to permanently avoid updates. You can only avoid them for seven days at a time, and then you need to update them. But that's still a huge improvement and that means you can tell Windows not to bother about updates for a while. If you are traveling or busy with something, you can get a respite from updates for a week. It's huge!
Windows 10 Professional users always have more control, including the ability to suspend updates for 35 days instead of seven days and other options. late feature and quality updates. But Windows 10 Home users finally have more control over the updates.
