    Reboot after Windows Update vs Shutdown and restart


    Has anyone else noticed that after an update from Windows Update you "Must" do a Reboot for the installation/update to process. In prior versions of Windows when I would take an update, I might just wait until I shut the PC down for the night, and it would finish up in the morning upon startup. In Windows 10 that no longer works (for me) it MUST be a Reboot for it to process...

    Far as i recall with say Windows 8.1 if update required it had to restart or can shutdown and update. Windows 10 either you do it then or reschedule restart. Look bottom here https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4...dows-10-a.html

    I know about that, I am just stating that it no longer installs the updates that it has already downloaded on a shutdown and restart, it seems that it MUST be a "Reboot"

    Reboot, what do you exactly mean by that ? reboot is a restart. It already installed it after it downloaded it, a restart just configures it.

    They do for me. Several times I've hit my shutdown shortcut and got the "do not turn off your PC etc" message. Then the updates are done and it shuts down. On the next power up, "if more updating is required" they complete.

    I think perhaps that is because you have fast startup disabled?

    I have not noticed in Windows 10 at start button, but it was the way in Windows 8.1 "shutdown and update or "Restart and update" .

    I do have Fast Startup disabled. I wasn't aware it was a factor.

    Hey, i learned something today, if this is a fact. Fast startup is along with hibernate.

    Fast Startup puts the PC into a hybrid sleep mode on shutdown.
