Windows 10 Auto Update Resolved

This is one of my biggest frustrations ever!  It happens at least once a week.  Just as you take that sip of coffee, contemplating on the brilliant blog you’ve been working on things start to disappear rapidly, closing in front of your very own eyes “No” it’s that moment the Windows 10 has decided to do an auto update, without even asking me!  Really Microsoft, WHY!!!!

This is just one of the more frustrating aspects of Windows 10,  the operating system’s ability to start installing updates when you’re in the middle of using it. While Microsoft has tried to address this aggressive approach to updates with features to snooze installation, Windows 10 users continue to complain that updates reboot devices when they’re in use.
Reacting to this feedback, Microsoft says it’s aware of the issues. “We heard you, and to alleviate this pain, if you have an update pending we’ve updated our reboot logic to use a new system that is more adaptive and proactive,” explains Microsoft’s Windows Insider chief Dona Sarkar. Microsoft says it has trained a “predictive model” that will accurately predict when the best time to restart the device is thanks to machine learning. “We will not only check if you are currently using your device before we restart, but we will also try to predict if you had just left the device to grab a cup of coffee and return shortly after,” says Sarkar.

Microsoft has been testing this new model internally, and says it has seen “promising results.” The software maker has been updating the model continuously as it’s cloud-based, and it’s now opening up to Windows Insiders to get additional feedback and testing. If Microsoft’s update model is finally fixed, it could bring an end to one of the most frustrating aspects of Windows 10, whereby you can take a break and pop out for coffee without having to return to a screen “Installing Updates” only to have to wait an hour sometimes for this to finish it’s course….more coffee????
