Prepping for April’s Windows 10 Creators Update Release: New Updating Options and Capabilities

Embedded in the announcement for Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15002 for PC, Microsoft is beginning to show new updating features that will become standard once Windows 10 Creators Update is officially delivered in April 2017.

  • We’ve added an option that will enable you to pause updates on your computer for up to 35 days. To pause your machine, go to the Advanced options page of Windows Update Settings. This capability will be available on Professional, Education, and Enterprise editions of Windows.
  • We’ve added an option that will now allow you to decide whether or not to include driver updates when you update Windows. This capability will be available on Professional, Education, and Enterprise editions of Windows.
  • We’ve added a new icon to the Windows Update Settings page to make easier to see your update status at a glance. This update status and experience is consistent with the experience you’ll find in the new Windows Defender dashboard.
  • We’ve made some improvements to our logic to better detect if the PC’s display is actively being used for something, such as projecting, and avoid attempting to restart.
  • Windows Insiders with the Home edition of Windows will now also be able to leverage the increased 18 hour max window for Active Hours.
