    Welcome to TenForums @kappacitor

    The 'defer upgrades' option in Pro works by switching you from the Current Branch (CB) to the Current Branch for Business (CBB). The Anniversary update (1607) is now on CBB, so it should be offered even if you have deferred upgrades. There may have been some corruption in your settings previously that were corrected by you changing the 'defer' setting. If you turn off 'defer' you should find the Creators Update instead, as that is now CB. I tested that here...

    I have a 1511 image for my test machine so I restored that and checked for updates. It's Pro, so I tried it with and without 'defer updates'.

    Defer updates turned on it found: 'Features update to windows 10, version 1607'
    Defer updates turned off it skipped that, instead finding: 'Windows 10 Creators Update Privacy Settings (KB4013214)'
    Oct 17 Creators Fall update
