    Unable to change update restart options


    Hi,

    Since the last update I can't change the restart options for the updates. I have Bitlocker enabled so the system restarts after the update and stays at the Bitlocker screen, would be nice to restart the system when I get home.

    Is there a way to get around this ? My multimedia server is installed on that machine and it keeps getting offline because of this...Not really helpful when I am out and about.

    Thanks

    :)

    change restart options

    Hi Kim,

    Restarting PC after the update was installed lets the computer apply the changes made. Follow the steps below on how to change the restart option:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Click Update & security.
    • Click Windows Update.
    • Under Update settings, click the Restart options
      link.
    • Under Schedule a time, turn the toggle On then pick a time on when you want to restart the PC.

    If anything comes up, don't hesitate to get back to us anytime.
