Windows 10 Creators Update Will Not Have Nasty Security Update Surprises

Windows 10 Creators Update - forced security updates

Have you ever run an all-night process on your Windows 10 PC and found your machine displaying a clean desktop for you in the morning, with no sign of your process being complete? Most of us have, at some point of time. Those days will soon be gone, as soon as Windows 10 Creators Update drops later this month.

According to John Cable, director of program management in the Windows servicing and delivery team:

“Prior to the Creators Update, Windows 10 made most of the decisions for you regarding when updates would be installed, and didn’t provide ways to tailor the timing to your specific needs.

What we heard back most explicitly was that you want more control over when Windows 10 installs updates. We also heard that unexpected reboots are disruptive if they happen at the wrong time.”

It’s clear that Mr. Cable has never had a “disruptive” experience with an “unexpected reboot”, but it’s great to know that Microsoft is changing the way they push updates to users.

Updates are very good, and should be done as soon as they’re available. But, most of the time, they can wait until an important task has been done.

Beginning with Windows 10 Creators Update, users will have more control over when these updates are executed.

As reported earlier, Windows 10 Creators Update is merely the first of two major updates that Microsoft will push for Windows this year. The next one, currently known as Redstone 3, is likely to come in the fall, and hopefully it will bring Surface Phone along with it.
