Windows 10: Towards a more flexible management of updates with the Creators Update

Windows 10: Towards a more flexible management of updates with the Creators Update

Microsoft has revealed new features planned with the Creators Update, the upcoming Windows 10 update expected in the spring. The program for the users: an extended management of the updates and a better control of the personal data.

An update will rarely be as well named: the Creators Update of Windows 10, expected in April, will integrate, among other additions, an improved management of updates. The Redmond firm claims to have taken into account the feedback from its users lamenting their lack of control over these updates that often trigger at the time that suits us least.

Microsoft promises that users will have more "flexibility" when scheduling upgrades - the download of which will result in fewer slowdowns and fewer reboots - with 3 options: restart the device immediately, schedule another date, or Activate a "nap" option that disables the launch of any update for 3 consecutive days.

Finally, Microsoft extends the duration of "active hours" that prevent Windows from triggering this process during the hours that you want to fully devote to using your computer or tablet.

In addition to these useful but long-standing iOS additions, the Creators Update will also incorporate a personal data control option that will enable, on one and the same window, to enable or disable all essential settings: geolocation, Voice recognition, bug diagnostics.
