Windows 10 restart after Windows update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Once Windows 10 is updated and if it requires a reboot, Windows Update window will display when it will restarted. If I do not restart the machine, will Windows OS initiate that restart automatically? If so, what is the default time (Hours, Days)  the OS will have before it is rebooted mandatory?

    Thanks

  • Hi TIA TP.

    Windows Update defaults to installing updates (and subsequently rebooting your computer) at 3:00 AM.
    You can change the active hours (the time range when your PC will not be rebooted) by going to Settings -> Windows Update and clicking Active Hours; in the same window, you can also click Restart options and specify day and time for your system to be rebooted.
    For more information about how to manage device restart after updates, read the document at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/update/waas-restart.

    Bye.

  • Hi ,

    You can use Group Policy settings or Registry to manage Windows 10 device restarts after updates. Schedule update installation and set policies for restart, configure active hours for when restarts will not occur, or you can do both.
