My new favorite Windows update setting
I’ve been a patcher of Windows machines for … well, a long time — so long ago I remember when we didn’t have a Patch Tuesday. Instead, we got updates on any-time-the-patches-were-ready-day-of-the-week. So I’ve long been a proponent of controlling when and how updates install.
Windows 10 patching has come a long way since it was first introduced to the patching public. Initially, its patching processes were heavy handed; Windows pushed updates to users whether we liked it or not. Now – as long as you have Windows 10 Professional– Microsoft is much less a bully and, in the case of the feature release process, almost gentlemanly like in its demeanor and patience.
