21. Seize con­trol of Win­dows Up­dates

Windows Advisor - - Feature -

There are some ac­tions you can take to ex­ert con­trol over your Win­dows Up­date experience, how­ever. Most no­tably, if you’re us­ing Wi-Fi for con­nec­tiv­ity, you can set Win­dows 10’s Wi-Fi con­nec­tions as me­tered to down­load up­dates when you’d like to, rather than when Mi­crosoft wants you to. The Ac­tive Hours fea­ture lets you tell Win­dows spe­cific times not to in­stall up­dates. And if you ever en­counter an up­date that re­fuses to play nice with your PC, Mi­crosoft’s re­leased a tool that al­lows you to choose in­di­vid­ual up­dates so they won’t be down­loaded again.

Those work­arounds aren’t a re­place­ment for be­ing able to man­u­ally choose the Win­dows Up­date you’d like to in­stall, but they should help ease the sting a lit­tle.
