Why Windows 10 Version 2004 Comes Without Update Deferral Options

Windows 10 Microsoft Makes Deferring Feature Updates Harder with Windows 10 Version 2004

Right-click on Windows Update and select 'New' 'DWORD (32-bit) Value'.

And of course, many believe this is something that Microsoft has turned to in order to improve the adoption of its latest Windows 10 version.

With Windows 10's May 2019 Update, Microsoft introduced the ability to defer all Windows 10 updates, including feature updates, for up to 35 days via the Windows Update settings.

Windows 10 May 2020 Update is causing problems with Windows Defender, whereby Microsoft's built-in antivirus solution is erroneously and repeatedly flagging up potentially dodgy apps which aren't actually on the PC at all (having been previously removed).

New Microsoft documentation has revealed a Group policy and Registry tweak that allows you to specify the specific Windows version you wish to stay on and prevent new feature updates from being installed.

Education and Enterprise users and users on Windows 10 Pro had access to the option to defer the two biannual Windows 10 feature updates unless support for their device's version was about to be withdrawn. As a result, many devices are only updating once a year.

However, Microsoft has now published a document (via Ed Braiter) that talks about Windows Updates and provides a way to block Windows 10 feature updates. Microsoft started the rollout by offering the May update as a manual download for those who clicked the check for updates button in Windows Update.

As Ghacks points out, this is the same pause limit that has been available to users of Windows 10 Home since it was released.

As Microsoft explains, it is still possible to further delay the installation of updates, but by removing the option from Settings and hiding it instead in Group Policy Editor, Microsoft will be hoping that fewer and fewer people do defer updates.

For this, the user must enter the computer configuration and then "administrative templates", and from there locate "Windows components", "Windows update" and "Windows update for companies".
