In just a couple weeks, Microsoft will launch the anticipated Windows 10 Redstone 4 or Windows 10 Spring Creators Update. As in many occasions, it is most certain that the guys at Redmond will launch this new version of their operative system progressively in order to avoid saturation on their servers, so some users will receive it sooner than others. Although many will be anxious to have the Windows 10 Spring Creators Update in their computer as soon as possible, many others would rather wait to check if the update is stable or if errors are reported as in previous occasions. Next, we will show you how to delay the update to Windows 10 Spring Creators Update in your computer.
Microsoft itself offers a solution for this on their Windows 10 configuration page. So, if we want to delay the arrival of Windows 10 Spring Creators Update to our computer, the first thing we need to do is to prepare our system before the end of this month.
Steps to follow to delay the Windows 10 Spring Creators Update
We open the settings page of Windows 10 from the Start menu or with the keyboard shortcut Win+R and once we are there, we go to Update & Security > Windows Update. Now, we scroll down and in Update Settings we click on Advanced Options.
This will open up a new window in which we can choose how and when to install the new updates. In the option Choose when to install updates, Windows 10 lets us choose the level of preparation to determine when to install the updates and then we will find two more options to postpone updates of characteristics or functions and to postpone updates of quality upgrades.
So in order to delay the Windows 10 Spring Creators Update, we need to choose the level of preparation to semiannual channel and establish the days we want to delay the updates of characteristics or functions. In this case, Windows 10 lets us pick how many days we want to delay this kind of updates, between 0 and 365 days.
There’s no need to delay quality updates if we don’t want them, since these are monthly accumulative updates for the Windows 10 version we have installed on the device. The updates we care about are the function’s ones, which is what the big Windows 10 Spring Creators Update is all about.
