    "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."

    - I have it in Pro - and - guess what- I'm going to use it this time until the next major update after the Creator's Upgrade...

    Not that I expect huge issues personally, but we've seen what happened for some previously.

    So the absence of such a feature would mean a different solution for the next upgrade...

    Seems MS's strategy is increasingly to force users to keep up to date, despite some remarkable failures.
    You got me thinking...looked at my lappy running 14393 Pro, and it is there! Tucked between "Give me updates ............." and "Use my sign in .............".

    The only one I've installed so far is OldNewExplorer as I can't bear not having the Details Pane along the bottom of the screen (one of the 'good things' I alluded to earlier). I'm managing fine with the W10 start menu but I'll bear Classic in mind
    Oldnewexplorer is much more of a hack than Classic Shell, which only uses the relevant folders, and is readily uninstallable. It hooks into nothing.

    Thanks, dalchina. I'll probably give Classic a go then...
