    Set updates to notify as I suggested. #3

    Note that manual links to each update are given in a thread per update in the News section if that helps for large updates e.g. at all.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DeliveryOptimization]
    "ClientTelId"=dword:00017904
    "UploadLimitState"=dword:00000000
    "UploadLimitMonthID"=dword:00000009
    In Windows 1703, I wonder what we can do with this...

    You could set your network connection as metered. In this case updates will show, but won't download until you allow them to do so.

    If you have Wifi network, it's even easier.

    with gpedit.msc

    Code:
    
    Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Delivery Optimization
    
    Max Upload Bandwidth = 0
    
    Lets you specify the maximum upload bandwidth (in KB/second) that a device uses across all concurrent upload activity. 
    The default value is 0, which means unlimited possible bandwidth.
    
    Maximum Download Bandwidth = 0
    
    Specifies the maximum download bandwidth in KiloBytes/second that the device can use across all concurrent download 
    activities using Delivery Optimization. 
    The default value 0 (zero) means that Delivery Optimization dynamically adjusts to use the available bandwidth for downloads.
    I will set it to half of my max upload/download capability

    wait & see

    Wont disabling active hours just mean that windows will reboot itself after an update, as opposed to the active hours when enabled preventing an auto reboot?
    I can't see anything in the guide you linked about notification of updates?

    I'm using eithernet. But the guide also mentions
    "starting with Windows 10 Creators Update version 1703, Windows Update will now also automatically download on a metered connection only those updates required to keep Windows running smoothly."

    Well, set as metered is now part of network options in Settings. but unfortunately I have no idea which updates (and how many of them) are for running smoothly.

    Edit: Take a look at complete tutorial for deferring Automatic updates dalchina linked :)

    Using Notify is much easier- it gives you a straightforward indication there's something pending, and you can see what it is before you start downloading.

    Using metered connections won't give you any notification or indication as to what it is- you'd have to enable it and see if anything happens.

    Agree. This is why I pointed out your solution. Sorry, you posted while I was typing. Would be better perhaps to delete post, but this way both solutions are here.
