It is time to defer the next feature update for Windows 10

Loading ....


Microsoft plans to complete the next feature update for Windows 10, Windows 10 variant 1903, sometime after this month. Windows 10 version 1903 is now accessible then in the end of March or the beginning of April 2019.

To begin with, to administrators of Windows who set up it actively, then after some time on programs automatically provided that automatic update functionality hasn’t yet been switched off.

The release of Windows 10 version 1809, the last feature upgrade for Windows 10, has shown that things might proceed horribly erroneous even with all the Insider construct testing and Microsoft’s attention on information evaluation .

There’s no guarantee that the new attribute update will provide a smoother experience and that is the most important reason administrators and users may want to defer the installation of the update. Instead of being one of the first to upgrade to the new version and participate in what some call another beta stage, it seems reasonable to watch from the second row things unfold.

Millions of apparatus will be updated in the first couple of days to the newest version and it does not take long, generally, before reports about problems in the new variant emerge.

It is a great idea to defer the upgrade unless you will need to install the newest feature update version as soon as possible.

The best way to delay Windows 10 variant 1903

Windows 10 Professional, Enterprise and Education approaches comprise two options to defer feature updates:

  1. Placing the division preparation level (this option goes away in Windows 10 variant 1903).

Though you might use the Preferences application to defer the upgrade, it is advised that you configure the deferral working with the Group Policy editor rather as this choice will stay available (it seems like Microsoft will remove all deferral options in the Settings program in Windows 10 version 1903).

The Group Policy process:

feature updates group policy

  1. Make certain that you have elevated rights.
  2. Load the Group Policy Editor, e.g. by launching Start, typing gpedit.msc, also selecting the result.
  3. Visit Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update > Windows Update to Business.
  4. Establish the policy to enabled.
  5. Change the amount of times under”After a Preview Build or Feature Update has been published, defer getting it for this many days” to 90 days. Doing this blocks the update for approximately three weeks.
  6. Click okay.

Doing so blocks the automated installation of the feature upgrade about the PC for the select number of times.

Home administrators can not use that option. They could either make adjustments to the Registry directly, or try and set the link to metered. How that’s done is explained here.

You: what’s your expectation for Windows 10 variant 1903?
