    How do I defer Feature Updates only in v1903? I used to be able to defer these for up to 365 days...

    There appears to be a bug in 1903 such that if you set a non-zero number of days to defer feature and/or quality updates, then that option will disappear from Settings - not immediately, but at the next check for updates (still not fixed as of 18362.175). If you had either/both set before the upgrade to 1903 they would already be invisible. I tested that here and show how to bring them back here:

    ...The contents of these Windows Update settings pages are only refreshed when you check for updates, either the automatic check or manually. Set a number of days then check for updates will make the option(s) disappear straight away.

    Using Regedit to set 'DeferFeaturesUpdatePeriodInDays' or 'DeferQualtyUpdatePeriodInDays' back to zero in the key
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX\Settings will make them visible again (after another 'check for updates').

    I'd just like to point out that if you keep "Hexadecimal" selected, as shown in the screenshots for the first post above (at the time I'm writing this), then you will get unintended values if you enter a value above 9. For example, if you enter 11 with "Hexadecimal" selected, because you want it set to 11 days, the actual value will end up being 17 days (because 11 in hex converts to 17 in decimal). If you enter 30, it will be saved as decimal 48. And so on.

    Thank you STRESSED. Tutorial updated to make sure Decimal is selected first.

    @Brink, it seems that for Pro the 'Choose when updates are installed' section in Advanced options is missing in 2004, build 19041.264.

    This was first reported by @NMI here and I have confirmed that it's missing in my clean install of 2004 Pro.

    I do wonder if v2004 is just mistakenly being thought of as Insider build, or if this feature has been completely removed starting with this build.

    The registry keys and values from option 2 are no longer there by default either.

    I haven't seen anything about it in the release notes, but I will make a note in the tutorial for now.

    Wouldn't be the first time. As I recall 1803 still had a few insider restrictions mistakenly left in at first. Seems it was rushed out on the last day of April to justify its 'April 2018 Update' name.

    As yet we don't know if that works any more in 2004 as the are no new CUs. The first opportunity to test it will be this coming 'Patch Tuesday', 9th June.

    Some evidence that it is:

    An interesting find.
    On all my PC's that were updated using an ISO created with MCT, show up in AIDA64 as Insider Preview builds
