The Windows 10 Creators Update OS is scheduled for release on April 11th, news that was recently confirmed by chief of the Windows Insider Program Dona Sarkar on Twitter. It will bring a series of new and interesting features to the table, many of which Microsoft has officially revealed. One curious Insider recently came across a series of interesting update options to add to what’s already known.

Windows 10 Pro version 1703: Defer updates for 365 days

The Pro version of the Windows 10 Creators Update will allow users to defer updates for 365 days. As a quick reminder, the Pro version of Windows 10 version 1607 allows users to defer updates for up to four months. Specifically, the option to defer updates for a entire year applies only to feature updates which include new features and capabilities. Security updates can be deferred for a max of 35 days.

This is an excellent piece of news for Windows 10 users, confirming that Microsoft is indeed listening to them:

Oh wow… “Check for updates but let me decide whether to download and install them”. There. Is it so difficult to understand people need that, rather than all those stupid options?

As far as Windows 10 Home version 1703 is concerned, there is no way to defer or pause updates because there are no advanced update options available that allow users to block updates. Many Windows 10 Home users agree that the option to defer updates should come to this OS version as well.

Yep – just want to see the same feature set carry over to Home…

Speaking of updates, here are the improvements that the Creators Update will include:
