Windows: how to avoid system update notifications

Keeping our computer up-to-date is important to receive the latest software updates and new security patches. However, many times the renewal of the system tends to cause headaches for users due to the frequent errors that arise along the way.

It is for this reason that several choose not to install the updates the same day they are released. However, this decision leads to Microsoft send constant notifications to remind them to do so, which can be quite annoying.

If you still do not want to get the recommended updates, you can temporarily pause their download and installation, which will also stop the sending of notifications. To do this, follow these steps depending on the version of the operating system you have on your computer:

If you want to postpone updates for more than a week, Windows gives you the option to extend the period for up to 35 days. To do so, you just have to continue pressing the button. Pause updates and you will see how the resume date will be postponed at the top.

As in Windows 10, you will have the possibility to temporarily delay the installation of updates for up to 35 days.
