Every Windows user has experienced the annoyance of being in full flow only to get interrupted by a poorly timed Windows Update demanding an immediate restart. With Windows 10 it is now possible to stop these interruptions.

In Windows 10 under the Update and Security settings section, you can now set "Active Hours". Active Hours let you tell Windows when you are typically using the computer and will prevent Windows from restarting during these hours. 

To set your Active Hours

  • Click the "Start Button"
  • Click "Settings"
  • Select "Update and Settings"
  • Click "Change Active Hours"
  • Set your Active Hours and click Save.
