    Reverse Defer Updates


    I have seen a lot of threads regarding the "Defer Updates" feature in Windows 10 Pro. After activating this feature by checking the Defer Update box, is there a way to to reverse "Defer Updates" and start receiving all updates again?

    Hello shsell, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Unchecking the "Defer upgrades" box will undo it for you to start receiving the updates again.

    That made the most sense to me, but having the box uncheck for a least a week now, nothing has happened except for the Security Definitions I get for Defender.

    Deferring updates will only delay them for a month or so before they get automatically installed.

    There may not be any new updates available yet, but you might keep checking for the next few days to see if any become available.

    You might also check your update history and which updates are showed as installed in Control Panel to see if you are missing any compared to below.
