Windows 10 is releasing big updates. One of the things included in the operating system's Insider Preview Build 15002 for PC is the option to pause updates on the computer for up to 35 days.
According to the Windows blog, it was meant to improve users' updating experience. Windows based the said enhancement on feedback shared.
Pausing your computer updates require you to go the Advanced options page of Windows Update Settings. This option will be made accessible to Professional, Education, and Enterprise editions of Windows. The decision to defer driver updates is also available to the same editions.
A new icon to the Windows Update Settings page is added to make it easier for users to see their update status at once. The OS will also be able to detect if the system's display is currently in active use, preventing restarts from happening in the middle of your work.
This is just the tip of the Windows update iceberg. Other updates include a tab preview bar for Microsoft Edge, perfect for multi-tab users who may have a hard time tracking their tabs after a while. Start Tiles can now be also grouped into folders for users to organize and personalize tiles in Start. Another new option is the Lower Blue Light where Windows can automatically lower the amount of blue light emitted from the PC in the dark. Users can now also limit background data usage found in mobile broadband and Wi-Fi connections for more control over how Ethernet connection data is used with Metered Ethernet Connection Support.
Other small issues are also being acknowledged by Microsoft including the crashing Battery Settings app, Netflix app crashing for certain hardware like Acer Aspire or displaying a black screen as opposed to the expected video content with Microsoft Edge as a workaround.
