Windows 10 now includes a new feature, which allows the user to customize "active hours" during which you are expected to be using your PC or phone. No updates will be installed, and no restarts will be scheduled during those hours, so it seems to be a way to keep the user in control although the OS still doesn't let you manually install updates. Let's see how to change Windows Update Active hours in Windows 10.
New information has appeared on the internet related to the upcoming Windows 10 Redstone update. In internal builds of Windows 10, which are not available for the public yet, an updated Windows Update user interface and options have been spotted. Let's see exactly what changes Microsoft is working on.
Microsoft has released a new update for Windows 10. The ID for the update package is KB3140741, it is very small and doesn’t require a reboot.
Many Reddit users faced an unexpected behavior from Windows Update when suddenly it forcibly and silently started the installation process for Windows 10 without any warning. This happens if KB3035583 is installed, which comes with the following description:
Update installs Get Windows 10 app in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 SP1
Without any confirmation, the updated Get Windows 10 app not only starts setup but upgrades the user's installed operating system to Windows 10!
A new cumulative update for Windows 10 TH2 has been released by Microsoft. The KB3140742 patch bumps Windows 10 version number from 10586.104 to 10586.112.
A new round of tricks to get users to upgrade to Windows 10 has started. For those who are on Windows 7 and Windows 8, Microsoft has released a new update promoting the features of Windows 10. In addition to the well known KB3035583, which is GWX i.e. the Windows 10 upgrade offer app, a new package has been rolled out.
We warned you in our previous articles that Windows 10 was going to become a recommended update for Windows 7 and Windows 8 users. Microsoft previously announced that this would happen in early 2016 and now it has.
Again, Microsoft has released a new cumulative update for those users who run the stable release Windows 10 TH2. Windows 10 build 10586, also known as version 1511 or Threshold 2, is the stable Windows 10 release available for now. With the latest cumulative update KB3136562 released today, Microsoft has bumped its version to 10586.79.
Here is another round of aggressive attempts from Microsoft to push Windows 10 on every Windows 7 and Windows 8 user. They are very anxious to move everyone to Windows 10 as soon as possible. There are a number of tricks the company is using to make the user install Windows 10. They are showing nags, annoyingly downloading it silently and hiding options to ignore the prompts. Now the Windows 10 upgrade offer has no obvious Cancel button although you might still be able to ignore it.
Yet another cumulative update for Windows 10 is rolled out by Microsoft. KB3116900 bumped Windows version from 10586.17 to 10586.29. Now Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile have the same version number.
