How to pause updates

The first step to prevent updates from taking over the system at any moment, is to set any pause requests by going through the Settings.

First you need to click on the Start button and then on the gear icon that allows you to access precisely the Settings of the computer. From this interface we can access different sections of the computer, we are interested in “Update and security”.

Any pending updates will be listed at the top of the screen. To postpone them, just scroll down and click on the “Pause updates for 7 days” button. To further delay the updates, just access the section just before the deadline and click the button again. To update Windows 10 immediately, just click on “Resume updates”.

Within the Settings you can also choose a time of use of the computer, within which the Windows will avoid making updates, for example from 9:00 to 18:00. In these hours the system will not interrupt the activity with any updates, but will automatically postpone them to the following hours.
