    Basic W10 Update Query


    I would like to delay the latest major update. On May 20, I set my delay for 30 days, until June 19. After the 19th, I assume it will start updating. How can I avoid this?

    Windows 2004 came out on May 27 and that is when the 30 days starts. Just change the days to a higher number (365 max)

    I'm confused.
    When I go to Advanced Options it only lets me pause options for 35 days and my latest date is June 19.

    How do I delay it further?

    OK, I figured out the discrepancy. I have W10 Home.

    Am I stuck with doing the update on the 20th?

    The following works fine on my Windows 10 Home:
    Using CMD script and VBScript to control Windows Update

    I have never used the said "Pause updates" option.

    There is no need to avoid or delay anything. The update to version 2004 is entirely optional in both Home and Pro. It will not download or install until you ask it to by clicking on 'Download and install'.
