    Will Update Ask for Confirm Before Restart?

    I have Win 10 updates set to "Notify to Schedule Restart". Will it ask me to confirm before it restarts (since it seems to schedule them about 3:00 a.m. when I'm asleep). I'd rather my computer not reboot without my ok. Thanks.

    As far as I can tell, the answer's "No". If you have the Update app running, it'll state there that there's an update that requires you to restart, but it'll schedule the restart itself. My laptop has started itself at 2:30am several times, having downloaded an update without advising me.

    Today when I woke up my computer (desktop) it told me about the scheduled update and ask if wanted to schedule it myself. So that's fine.

    Also, I've since learned that if you have a wireless connection and set it to "Metered" supposedly it will ask about updates.

    I haven't seen an option to disable forced reboots for updates or at least require a button click before restarting. M$ needs to fix this by at least providing options. Thanks for pointing this out.
