    Windows upgrades

    I'm not sure if Microsoft have thought through the new policy on updates and upgrades.

    The only way we have found to control them is mark our internet connection as metered.

    I have had several "home" users having trouble with the recent upgrade. The size and time taken to download and install confuses many home users into thinking something is wrong, and frequently switch the machine off, with subsequent consequences.

    In fact we are recommending to all to mark the internet as metered to avoid this problem.

    I suggest the new policy of making upgrades automatic is less than sensible - more muddled thinking from Microsoft

    I would suggest that you post that comment to Feedback app where Microsoft people are supposed to read and take notes.
    No guarantees they will consider your suggestion but that is the venue we are supposed to use.
    Read the feedback posts. There is probably a comment/complaint similar to yours. Upvote it. If enough people do that, MS might listen.
