  1. Why Can't I Schedule Downloads?


    My ISP offers free bandwidth from 02:00-08:00.

    In fact, as I understand it, ISPs the world over offer their customers similar concessions. Common as this may be, the practice has somehow eluded the great minds at Microsoft, evidenced by the fact that Windows still offers no provision (that I can find) for scheduling downloads at off-peak hours. Indeed it downloads updates as it pleases, willy-nilly.


    If Microsoft wishes to earn favor in the eyes of its customers, respecting the limits of their overpriced, on-peak bandwidth would be a good place to start.


    G*dd*mn it.

    Scheduling Downloads


    Hi there,
    You could always get Windows to check at 3AM that way it would download once it's checked. To change the time Windows check for updates simply do the following...

    1. Go to Action Center
    2. Look for the Automatic Maintenance section
    3. Put a check in the Allow scheduled maintenance to wake up my computer at the scheduled time check-box
    4. Optionally set the exact time (to the hour) when Windows should wake up and check
