Windows 10: After 20h2 update, no 365 day deferral option

Discus and support After 20h2 update, no 365 day deferral option in Windows 10 Updates and Activation to solve the problem; I can pause updates, but 365 day option isn't there.

    I can pause updates, but 365 day option isn't there. Is there any other way to control an involuntary update?

    Thank you for your reply.



    You may find Policy Plus (free, Google) easier. It's like the Group Policy editor, but has a find feature.

    Here I searched for 365 - there's the deferral policy.

    I believe others have told you. Bottom option, then they are in the Windows Update section.

    Removal of deferral in Settings: a simple search offers this article: see:
    Microsoft removed the defer feature update setting in Windows 10

    You have Win 10 Pro, therefore you can use the Group Policy Editor.

    This next is a very handy policy, which ensures you are notified of a pending update, and nothing is downloaded until you say so.

    This second lets you hang back, and check for comments here e.g. in the News section where there is a thread per update per build.

    After 20h2 update, no 365 day deferral option

    Hello Matthew,

    I don't want to disable WU. I'm trying to follow the typical practice of giving new Windows releases time to sort out the bugs, before upgrading, as in 21H1. Before, I could employ the deferral, and still get the security updates.

    Are we saying there is no way to do this any longer, or there is, perhaps in the form of the WU page offering us an option of manually activating a release upgrade?

    edit: I just went to my WU settings and I'm seeing this

    So, my questions are, do we know this quality update is stable, and in the future will I be given this choice for new releases?
