    Defer updates

    Something I just experienced and wondering about how or why it can be this way.
    I have had 10 on my machine for a month or more now.
    Just finished upgrading my wife's a couple of hours ago.
    Identical computers as far as make,model etc.
    Did a check for updates on mine just incase that was the reason (no new updates).
    After upgrading her's she has the "defer updates" option and I don't.
    Same edition,version and build.
    Not a big deal but I sure would like to have the option on mine.

    Same edition,Click image for larger version.

    And now it's gone so nevermind.
    After the option being there for a couple of hours there was just an an update for flash and malicious software removal tool and the defer updates option was gone.

    Hello rabgary, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Seems like it was a glitch. "Defer upgrades" is only be available in the Pro, Enterprise, and Education editions.
