      Yes, there is. Go to Settings>Update and Security. If you have the Pro or Education edition (in stead of the Home edition) there are additional settings in mscedit.msc (the group policies editor).

      Certainly! To access the additional settings for the Pro or Education edition, navigate to Settings > Update and Security. If you’re using the Pro or Education edition instead of the Home edition, explore further options in the group policies editor (mscedit.msc).

      You asked TWO questions.

      1. Control updates. Answered.
      2. Manually update. Download the update from Microsoft and install it.

      Now there is a much more involved system involving a server for a workgroup but you would be managing a few hundred PCs to even consider that.

      To control updates in Windows 10, you can utilize the “Active Hours” feature to specify times when updates should not occur, preventing disruptions during your regular usage hours. Additionally, accessing the Windows Update settings allows you to pause updates for up to 35 days, providing flexibility in managing when updates are installed. For more granular control, consider using the Group Policy Editor or Registry Editor to tailor update settings to your preferences and schedule.

      While controlling Windows 10 updates can offer convenience and prevent disruptions, it’s crucial to strike a balance between customization and system security. Utilizing features such as pausing updates, setting active hours, and designating a metered connection provides flexibility for users to manage their update schedules. For Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise users, Group Policy and Registry Editor offer more advanced control options. However, it’s essential to exercise caution and stay mindful of potential security risks associated with delaying updates for extended periods. Finding the right balance ensures a smooth and secure computing experience, allowing users to tailor their update preferences while keeping their systems up-to-date with the latest features and security patches.

      Managing updates in Windows 10 can be crucial to maintain system stability and security. To control updates effectively, one method is through the “Windows Update” settings. Access this by typing “Windows Update settings” in the search bar, then navigate to “Advanced options.” Here, you can pause updates temporarily or specify active hours to prevent automatic restarts during your work hours. Additionally, consider using Group Policy or Registry Editor for more granular control over updates. It’s vital to balance timely updates for security with minimizing disruptions.
