- Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 10 Creators Update will allow for a "more seamless and user controlled experience," according to a Microsoft blog.
- The update will include allowing users the choice of when to install updates on their devices and allowing them to adjust their privacy settings.
- Microsoft is expected to release the Windows 10 Creators Update in April. It will also include improvements to popular apps and Microsoft Edge.
Today, your Windows PC decides when it will install an update with or without you, which can be frustrating if you’re in the middle of writing an important email or delivering a presentation.
But the new Creators Update promises to give users the ability to schedule when they want updates to install. An icon on the Windows Update Settings page will let uses see at a glance whether or not their device is up to date.
Microsoft also promises in-progress updates will have less impact on device performance, presumably through the Unified Update Platform (UUP), technology Microsoft announced it was testing last November. Rather than re-download an entire software package, a UUP will be used to find the parts of the software that need updating and download only those targeted areas. Microsoft said this will result in much faster downloads.
