Shutting computer down while updating
It’s unfortunate that this update cycle is seeing so many issues, and my recommendation to anyone running Windows 10 version 1709 is to hold off on Windows 10 1803 April 2018 Update at least until the first Cumulative Update arrives – maybe even longer depending on the system you’re running.If you decided to roll the update, or are having frustrating problems with the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, head to our Windows 10 Forums to let us know your story and for additional troubleshooting advice from the community.Some of the other issues that users are reporting include File Explorer crashing, BSOD during the update, Microsoft and third-party apps become unstable, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connection troubles, and hardware not working – just to name a few.If you’re running Windows 10 Pro, you can pause the feature update while still getting critical security and system updates for the build you’re on.Simply head to From there you can change the number of days you want to delay the feature update – version 1803 – for up to a full year.Here you can also defer the system and security updates for up to 30 days.
And, while the company pushes out much-needed security updates, it will also start rolling out Windows 10 version 1803 aka “April 2018 Update” to eligible devices tomorrow via Windows Update.
While we would never encourage you to delay critical updates, it might be prudent this time considering this unpredictable state of the current cycle.
Maybe pause them three to four days – at least until we hear more about how things are going for people.
I've never enjoyed this before, but after Windows 10 updated, it shut down. Is there a simple way for me to reverse that and have the computer simply reboot as before after the update?
I guess that's the only way to know is to wait till Tooney Tuesday, I mean Patch Tuesday.
