Windows 11 Tutorial – How to pause or disable Windows Updates
Windows 11 updates, which Microsoft delivers to your machine on a regular basis, are intended to keep your operating system up to date. They are, for the most part, beneficial. However, as long-time Windows users are aware, updates do occasionally go wrong, therefore some prefer to delay updates for a week or two to ensure that no problems are sent with the update. Furthermore, upgrades can arrive at inappropriate times, such as while you’re in the middle of a project with a tight deadline.
You can’t completely stop updates, but you can pause them. There is also a way to turn off updates, but this is not permanent. Here’s how to change your settings if you want to wait in case of any potential difficulties or if you just want to put them off as long as possible.
How to Pause Updates –
Step 1. Open the Settings app on your Windows 11 PC.
Step 2. On the left hand side pane, click on the ‘Windows Update’ button.
