    For me: Worth it to update to the new Fall Ceator update?


    The main use for my Windows 10 is heavy browsing the net (I use Firefox and Chrome - both well tweaked, but NOT Edge,) photography (image processing with Faststone, Photoshop Elements 14, NIK Collection, image storage,) and email (Thunderbird.) I am not a gamer, nor do I have a touch screen or am I into virtual reality. I do have the Anniversary update, but wonder if I really need the FC update...that is, do I need the extra bloat if it appears that the update probably doesn't add anything to my computer use/performance. However, I also wonder if I don't install the new update, will that cause problems down the road when the next updates come out?

    If you have Win 10 Pro you can use Group Policy to defer the upgrade for 365 days.

    As far as CU's , they will still be available and if you want to upgrade you can just undo the GP Fix.

    Don't have Pro, but have been delaying install by selecting a 3 day delay before the next request to install.

    You can defer it permanently by using wushowhide.diagcab tool.

    If you like, you can also defer updates without using Group Policy.

    Let's say I defer. When the next update comes out, how does this deferment effect the new update?

    Hey flycaster, :)

    Since you have the Windows 10 Home edition, you would have to use Option 2 to manually set this in the registry.

    It will basically delay the available feature or quality update by how many days you set before being installed.

    You just remove it if you are talking about an Upgrade . A Cumulative Update it is not necessary to do so.

    There is a sure way to get normal cumulative and security updates but refuse build upgrades without disabling services or using third party programs.

    It is so simple that I am surprised it is never mentioned.

    Answer: Simply install windows in a virtual hard drive on host PC.

    This method makes use of the fact that Windows will not allow you to do build upgrades on vhds booted from host.

    Then please inform me how I am getting them? Not using any third party stuff just Group Policy.
