Need to Pause Your Windows 10 Home Updates? The option is coming!  

Windows 10 updates have been very troublesome over the years, with every major iteration of the operating system coming with a new slew of bugs, incompatibility issues and a range of other problems. Simply put, Microsoft's OS updates have become a joke amongst PC enthusiasts and casual users alike. 

Now, it looks like Microsoft plans to give their users more options when it comes to updating their systems. It was recently announced that Windows 10 would soon start automatically uninstalling troublesome updates, a move which will no doubt help many casual users. 

Better still, recent insider build of Windows 10 has added the ability to pause OS updates for seven days on Windows 10 Home, with yesterday's release, build 18356, offering pauses of up to 35 days, bringing Windows 10 Home in line with Windows 10 Pro. This will allow users of the OS to delay updates for over a month, though this change is expected to take a while to migrate to non-insider builds of Windows 10 Home. 

After this update, it is unknown how Windows 10 Pro will change, as the ability to delay updates is considered a key feature for the premium version of Windows 10. Will Pro users soon be able to pause updates for longer, perhaps indefinitely, or with Windows 10 Pro gain a new feature that differentiates to from Windows 10 Home?

That's nice, some people might pause updates... Even if an update messes up some systems MS by the time the 30 days pass will either have pulled it or fixed it..Quote
