    Windows 10 update active hours keeps changing itself, even though auto adjust is not ticked


    Hi,For some reason every time I change my active hours, and save it, after a few minutes the time resets to what it was previously.e.g.I change active hours to 10.00 to 3.00 15 hrs and save them, but then it later resets back to 15.00 to 9.00 18 Hrs! Sometimes it even changes to another random time slot, like 10.00 to 16.00. Whats happening here, I have the auto adjust box turned off! can you not have active hours go past midnight? This is really bad because I often need to work in the early morning, and don't want my PC to start trying to do an update and lag out evert

    :)

  2. Windows 10 keeps rescheduling updates

    Hello Kathryn,

    I apologize for the delay in response.

    The build version of the computer can be checked by following the steps provided below:

    • Press Windows + R keys, type winver and press
      Enter.
    • In the Window that appears, the Windows version and the build version will be displayed in the second line.

    If the Windows Version is 1607, then the system is updated to the Windows 10 Anniversary update. In this version of Windows, you can adjust Active Hours. This is the time period set for the system not to restart after the update is downloaded/installed.
    To enable Active hours, follow the steps provided below:

    • Navigate to Start>Settings>Update & Security.
    • In the left navigation pane, click on Windows Update.
    • In the right pane, click on Change Active Hours.
    • Set the start and end time for Active Hours and click on Save.

    Hope this helps. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

    Thank you.

    Windows 10 checked for updates during active hours...

    I have my Change Active Hours set from 8am to 11pm and the "Automatically adjust active hours for this device based on activity" is off.

    Why would Windows check for updates at 10:25am today?!?
    You're up to date.
    Last Checked: Today, 10:25am

    Should I turn that Automatically adjust active hours switch back on??

    Using Windows version 1909

    Configuring active hours with Group Policy.



    Please refer the section for Configure active hours
