Schedule the DOWNLOAD TIME of a Windows 10 automatic update from 00:30AM to 05:30AM in my location

Hello

This is a very simple question with no apparent answer on this forum.

I want to... Schedule the DOWNLOAD TIME of a Windows 10 automatic update from 00:30AM to 05:30AM in my location. This can run every day.

Put differently:

1. I do not care when windows do an automatic restart.

2. I want the download to be automatic.

3. Most importantly. I want the download to occur ONLY between the hours of 00:30 to 05:00 in my location i.e. my PC's local time.

Point 3 is important since I get free data 10MBps each day during these hours.

Please just explain this to me once and for all.

Thank you for your correct answer

 4 - Auto download and schedule the install

The wording of this is slightly ambiguous.

To me it seems like the download happens whenever and only the install is scheduled.

Does the download follow the schedule as well?
