    W10 home has a defer update that can be check, is that a fluke or...?


    W10 home has a defer update box that can be checked, is that a fluke or a new feature? This is not the insider build, it is the most recent windows 10 image created with the windows 10 media creation tools (Iso image).

    I read on different sites the defer update box shouldn't be there in windows 10 home unless that has changed.

    I also have W10 Home. I just checked for updates and do not have a box to defer them. I did have three updates to install.

    Are you sure that's not a "Defer Upgrades"? Upgrades are added features. Updates are patches etc.

    Yes it defer upgrades not updates but read this website

    Here is some info from that website.

    “Some Windows 10 editions let you defer upgrades to your PC. When you defer upgrades, new Windows features won’t be downloaded or installed for several months. Deferring upgrades doesn’t affect security updates. Note that deferring upgrades will prevent you from getting the latest Windows features as soon as they’re available.”
    The Professional, Enterprise, and Education editions of Windows 10 all have the “Defer upgrades” option. Windows 10 Home — the standard version of Windows 10 you’ll get on most new PCs — does not have this option. If you do really want this option, however, you can pay $99 to upgrade your Windows 10 Home PC to a Windows 10 Professional PC.

    Ah, OK. I don't have Home running on any of my PC's to check it. Sometimes people mix up upgrades and updates. You had defer updates in your thread title so I wanted you to double check. I thought they all had defer upgrades, but only Pro and Ent had an option to defer updates. We'll have to wait for somebody else running Home to post what they see.

    I have deferred updates for a couple of weeks only to find it forced them eventually - I deferred them to allow time for MS to fix errors in there updates as I can't afford to have an update mess up my system and loose revenue.

    Updates or Upgrades? If updates, how did you defer them?

    updates....


    Settings > updates&security > Windows Update > Advanced options > notify to schedule restart. I can't see an option as my system is up to date but when one is available I can delay the update by 5 or 6 days....I will repost when this is available to me.

    Ok, if I understand that, your delaying the reboot after they have already been installed, right? And it only works if you don't turn your PC off, or reboot it. Updates that don't require a reboot will install anyway too.

    As far as I'm am aware I am delaying the installation of the updates. I use my computer as normal and turn it off when not in use. Occasionally when I start it up I have the windows is updating boot up screen. This happens on the date I have not selected to update.
