    If you are a Windows 10 power user, you will know how annoying these Updates are..... It seems like daily we have to download and upgrade our systems... Well not any more, its about time Microsoft put this right.

    The latest Windows 10 Build (released spring 2017) allows users to pause updates. See image below.

    This is a great new feature, if you dont want to be hasseled by annoying windows 10 updates.

    To pause updates on Windows 10
    got to Settings > Update and Security > Pause updates >on

    Major updates will still be downloaded and installed automatically such as windows defender, but things like drivers and normal updates will be delayed up to 35 days. Why 35 days? i have no idea.
