This weeks tip Setting a time frame for Windows 10 to install updates and restart Category: Windows OS The fact that Windows 10 will automatically download and install updates is both a blessing and a curse. It is a blessing because it will automatically keep your PC’s operating system up to date, with minimal intervention from you, but it is a curse, because inevitably it will choose to update right at the most inopportune time. The good news is there is help available in Windows 10 for this issue. You can set-up a twelve-hour window of time for each day where automatic restarts are not allowed. To do this, go to the Start menu and choose Settings. Then, select Update & Security and then Windows Update. From there, click Change Active Hours in the section for Update settings. Now, you can choose a Start Time and an End Time (these are the hours that you typically are actively using your computer, like 8-5). This will prevent Windows from installing updates and restarting your computer during those hours each day.
