    Changing Active Hours


    Am considering amending my “active hours” setting and am unsure about a couple of things:
    I tend not to leave the machine on over-night, is this a problem.
    Was considering revised active hours settings from 09.00 to 21.00, this would leave (say) 2-3 hours for updates, would this be enough time.
    Any advice most welcome

    Hello Daniel,

    If you wish to add more hours or to have an option to turn off the Active Hours, then the feature is currently unavailable on Windows phone. It is best if you can send a suggestion to make the features available using the
    Feedback Hub app. To send a suggestion on your Windows phone, you can follow the steps provided below:

    • Go to All Apps, search for the Feedback
      Hub app.
    • Open the menu icon at the top left side.
    • Select Feedback, then at the top right side, tap the
      add
      button (+).
    • Select Suggestionand fill up the box with the details needed.
    • Select the right category and then Submit.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask the community.

    Configuring active hours with Group Policy.



    Please refer the section for Configure active hours
    and make the changes accordingly. If the PC installed with Windows 10 Pro then follow the steps under

    Changing Active Hours

    I tried to change my active hours before downloading latest update so that I could leave it to restart its self but I found I could not do it because when you try to change hours the bar goes over the save button and it will not change I know in tutorials there is a way to do it but we should expect that the easy way should work I have tried it on two pcs and a laptop they are all the same screenshots will show what I mean
