does windows 10 updating while gaming online ?

does windows 10 updating while gaming online ? i searched but could not find an answer. I already switched off the peer to peer updates and changed updates to notify. but it sometime feels like i'm getting more lag at times compared to win 8 on the same game servers?

Does anyone know for sure that win 10 pauses downloading when a game is running?

windows updates will run during the maintenance window which defaults to 2:30AM

it can be changed if that is a bad time for you

Cheers for the reply Hardcore, But  most people  dont leave their  pc on all night. If i turn on my pc and start netfix or online gaming and there  is an update  due, will it start downloading  while  i'm trying to play or stream ? just  so i know win 10 isnt suitable  for gamers and i can go back to win 7 or 8

So is  microsoft  going to answer this or not? not everyone has high end broadband to be able to game/ stream and download updates at the same time.

Windows uses the same old background intelligent transfer service to get updates

if you are using a cellular connection, you can make this labeled as metered and updates will not use it and wait till you have a wifi or other connection that is not metered

the updates will install during the maintenance window

Thought I'd reopen this topic as I never got an answer.

Does windows 10 update during gaming etc or not?

People keep saying that win10 downloads at 2:30(default)  but no one will answer if it updates if my pc is not turned on at 2:30am and does it wait till I turn on  my pc the next day ie, 7pm and then start downloading updates while i'm trying to game because i did not leave my pc on all night?

And cellular settings dont work if you connect by usb, ethernet etc for bandwidth, only over wireless?
