We continue to learn about news related to the next major Windows 10 update. And what we are going to tell you next is very good news since Windows 10 will allow defer reboot after installing an update.
That means once and for all the sudden reboots that users have to deal with every so often every time there is a major update and you need the computer to reboot will be over.
Various postponement options
There is currently an option called “active hours” that allows the user to choose those hours in which the user is in front of the computer, which means that in those marked hours in which we are active the pc will not restart automatically.
If we do not choose those hours well, you may be surprised that your Windows 10 computer has restarted without asking you for anything, something that in some cases can be fatal if you were working on something.
It looks like Microsoft wants to fix those unexpected reboots and will implement a new option in Windows 10 Creators Update power postpone the update. In this way we will have more options to choose from to postpone an update, they are the following:
- Restart your computer now.
- Reboot the computer at a specified time on the same day.
- Postpone the update until later, albeit indefinitely.
This way your computer will restart only when you decide and when you are inactive at a certain time, the best time for it to occur and not disturb your work at all.
In any case, this will not be the only new functionality that we will see in Windows 10 thanks to Windows 10 Creators Update, as we have known long ago there will be a blue light filter and there will even be a new Game Mode in Windows 10, although for that we will still have to wait a bit longer.
What do you think about the new functionality to defer Windows 10 updates to avoid automatic reboots?
