Is Microsoft MSFT -0.14% finally seeing the light? Just days after admitting its Windows 10 upgrades went too far, a leaked build shows the company is taking steps to correct what is arguably the operating system’s worst problem…
In short: Microsoft might finally give home users some control over how Windows 10 updates are installed. The news comes via Winaero which attained an unreleased build of the Windows 10 ‘Creators Update’ (v14997), the final version of which is not due for release until “spring 2017”.
What it reveals is users will be given a new option to ‘Pause Updates’ for up to 35 days. This won’t include critical security updates, such as those for Windows Defender, but crucially it allows users to hold off on installing feature and driver updates for a period long enough to ensure they have no problems following a public rollout.
Microsoft sure is ignorant about what the people want, and they have enough self confidence to keep saying they know what the people want.
