OS Windows 10 Pro- Updates separately for each new user profile? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Everyone on the forum,

    We have set up an ICT Computer Lab and installed official Windows 10 Professional 64 Bit OS in a Core i3 Computer, with the purpose to teach ICT Computers to Children studying in grade 6 to 10 IGCSE Cambridge board. Our set up is as follows:- 

    Set up:- Windows Server 2012 + 10 Computers connected to server domain having OS windows 10 professional 64 bit + 24 port Switch for LAN networking etc. 


    Observation: What we have observed in last 2 months forces me to ask a question in this forum, because this matter is causing a lot of issue in normal day to day functioning. Every time a new user profile of s student is created, (even if Windows OS was updated just 3 hours back for a different old user), the system starts updating windows OS all over again for this new user profile. 

    Question:- (1) Does this mean that Windows 10 Pro OS maintains its OS and updates separately and individually for each user profile ? 
    (2) If Yes - Is there a way where we can configure the OS in a way where it updates commonly for all users including those that may be created in future? 

    Kindly do share your experience and knowledge for me to understand this scenario. 

    Thanks / Pinesh Mehta

  •   There is only one OS per machine, not one per user, so what you are seeing are not updates for the OS. I would guess that they are apps, as David suggested.

  • Hi Pinesh Mehta,

    For the new user, the only thing I could think of is the metro app. It is based on user.
    We could try to disable the app automatic update here to have a test.

    Best regards

  • Hello,

    What updates are you seeing installed per user?

    Do you have some examples of what was updated?

  • Keep in mind that most "applications" are sandboxes and are installed when a user logs in. Ie. Anything that shows on the start menu grid. Unfortunately I do not know if there is a way to get around this other than by disabling them.
