If you are a Windows user, then probably you know that the Windows updates are essential to help improving Windows operating system. It also helps you to be safe from bugs and threats.

However, sometimes these updates come with bugs that may break your system and cause many types of errors. That’s the reason why many users choose to stop Windows Update from running.

Unlike Windows 7, the Windows 10 don’t have the feature to turn off Windows Update as quickly. Instead, you have to disable it from Windows Service, which takes more time. For new users, it’s complicated.

Yesterday, Microsoft released a new build with number #15002 for users who subscribed Insider Preview program. According to the summary, there was a useful feature that many of us are waiting for – that’s you can actually delay updates for up to 35 days.

Is this period long enough for us?

If you are an Insider Preview user, download and upgrade to build #15002 right now for using this feature. To do so, navigate to Settings -> Update -> Advanced. From there, you can easily turn on or off the delay option. Furthermore, Windows 10 also lets us include or exclude driver updates when downloading and upgrading Windows.

As you know, most of the conflict errors often come from incompatible drivers. The newest driver version isn’t mean the perfect and the best for us, right?

From my point of view, the 35 days period isn’t long enough as according to many surveys, Microsoft often takes longer to discover bugs and of course, they take more time to working on it and release a new update to fix those bugs.

That is the reason why I would love to have the ability to choose how long I can delay, for example, 30 days, 60 days, 180 days, a year or even having the capacity to insert a particular day.

What do you think about this new feature? Do you wait for this?

  1. I was hoping I can disable Windows Update easier instead of accessing Windows Service and turn off the service that belongs to Windows Update. That takes more time than the traditional way like in Windows 7.
