Q: windows 10 updates This thread is locked from future replies

hello .

I am running windows 10 home version right now. I don't want to upgrade it to latest version (1607). I did it before and I found it slow !!!

I want to keep my current windows version but I want to receive windows security and other normal updates on current version. how can I do it ?


You can't do that.  To keep updates you have to install the latest updates, they are cumulative.


I know it can be slow at first, but it will be perfectly fine.  After install, I like to leave the computer set to "do not sleep when plugged in" and give it several hours to finish all the extra junk it has to do. Windows 7 only post-install task was the indexer, but Windows 10 has a dozen services that all run (Microsoft calls them "deferred tasks") that take many hours to finish, during which they kill the CPU and make the entire system run like junk.  I tell most people to give it overnight, and posted more details why here: cmdrkeene.com/psa-windows-10-high-cpu-usage

After all the background work is done, the performance will be the same speed as before.

thanks for your help. I've got another question.

I use an internet connection with limited data and it offers me unlimited downloads just at a specific time. ( 3 am to 8 am ). so I need to schedule my updates to being downloaded in this period of time.

Is there any way to start downloading updates at 3 am and make it stop at 8 am ?!!!

I will really appreciate your answer.

Yes indeed.  Use the steps on this page to set the hours of the day when upload downloads are allowed:
