Pausing Windows OS Updates (10 & 11)

Updates to the Windows operating system have been blamed by several customers for slowing down or even breaking their computers completely. In the OS, most updates are automatically downloaded and installed without warning, which can be a hassle and aggravating. Some updates are optional.

Fortunately, Windows 10 allows you to pause any updates that are downloading or being installed. For those who aren’t quite ready for the process to begin:

  1. Go to Start Menu
  2. Type in Settings
  3. Click on Update & Security
  4. Find Windows Update
  5. Advanced Options -or- Pause updates for 7 days
  6. Select the drop-down menu and pick a date

You can halt Windows 11 updates for up to five weeks by selecting “Pause” from the “Windows Update” selection in the Settings app.
