Alongside snooze, you can also pick a time to schedule a restart for a more convenient time.
Microsoft has been testing these changes with Windows Insiders, and says the feedback has been positive.
The software giant has long been criticized by Windows 10 users for its aggressive approach to applying updates, and it’s introducing some new options to prevent annoying reboots.
But if you -- like most people -- are using Windows 10 Home, you'll need to use workarounds to stave off Windows 10's aggressive automatic updates.
“We also heard that unexpected reboots are disruptive if they happen at the wrong time.” To stop these random reboots, Microsoft is adding a new snooze option that appears in a new prompt to let you know there’s a Windows 10 update available.
Snooze will stop an update installing for three days, and give you time to save any crucial work.
Before we proceed, keep in mind that by stopping the updates, you may open up your system to cyber threats by leaving bad code and security holes as well as bugs unpatched.
The consequences of stopping Windows 10 updates is solely your responsibility.
Windows Update, a service offered by Microsoft, provides updates for Windows components.
