Can I Defer Automatic Updates on the Windows 10 Home Edition?

haydnguy asked on

On the Frequently Asked Question Page I read the following:

*********

"Windows 10 Home users will have updates from Windows Update automatically available. "

*********

I cannot tell whether this means definitively whether I will be able to postpone an Update. I would like a short period (~ 1 week after the Update is released)  to see whether a particular update has "bugs" before I actually apply an update.

You can disable Windows Updates under Services.
