Pausing Windows 10 Updates

Many Windows 10 OS users have complained about the new update slowing down or even crashing their computer. It can be a nuisance and often frustrating, especially since in the new operating system downloads updates automatically without any notice.

Thankfully, Windows 10 gives you the opportunity to choose to pause any updates on downloads and installations. So if you’re not prepared to install, here’s how you can pause it:

  • Start Menu
  • Settings
  • Update & Security
  • Windows Update
  • Advanced Options -or- Pause updates for 7 days
  • Select the drop-down menu and pick a date

Windows notes that you will have to install the latest updates before you will be able to pause again.

(This tip works with Windows 10, version 1903, Windows 10 Pro, version 1809, or Windows 10 Enterprise, version 1809)
