    Blocking 1809 Update

    Hello All,

    I apologize if this has been asked already, I tried to look but was unable to find anything. I am wanting to specifically block the Fall Update from taking place (whenever it gets re-released), but allowing other updates to take place (like security updates). Is there a way to do this? We want to control when that update is allowed on our customer machines. I've looked at doing it through Group Policy and registry edits, but none of those seem to be exactly what I'm needing.

    Thank you

    If you have Pro, then you can defer Features Updates like 1809 until it is deemed by MS as ready for business use by switching from the 'Semi-Annual (Targeted)' to the 'Semi-Annual' channel. In addition, it can be deferred for up to 365 days. This does not affect the security updates, as these Quality Updates have their own independent deferral settings.

    Some have reported that the registry method for setting deferral works in Home too. If not, then the 'Features Update to Windows 10, version 1809' can be hidden, but to do that you have to wait until it is seen as available as an update. When it is released on the 'Semi-Annual' channel it seen as a different update and will have to be hidden again.

    Awesome! Thank you, Bree. That is the exact information I was needing. I will share this knowledge and will be implementing it. Also, thank you zbook for sharing that link with me.

    Thank you both for your assistance.
