Better updates

Microsoft promised to release a major update for Windows 10 every six months. But the company had to come back to that, because the update schedule turned out to be too much of a good thing. Lots of bugs and update errors caused users to run into problems or even end up with unworkable systems. That's why Microsoft is slowing down by releasing such major updates less regularly.

This changes the Windows 10 update schedule.

More control

As a user you also have more options for the updates. Critical updates will keep coming your way, whether you like it or not. However, Windows 10 Pro users have more control over when updates are allowed to be installed. So-called Feature Updates, ie functional updates, can be postponed (a lot).

Install Windows 10 update yourself

When Microsoft rolls out new Windows 10 updates, it is sometimes questionable when your PC will finally receive them. But of course you don't have to wait, you can also manually start these updates in a simple way.

This is how you install the latest Windows 10 update manually.

Unfortunately, it also regularly happens that a major Windows 10 update upsets the system: programs and peripherals no longer work properly, the system responds slowly or does not start at all. Are you experiencing these problems? Then take a look at the next page!
