Windows Update has seen a lot of changes on Windows 10. The biggest is a more aggressive approach to getting everyone up-to-date, but Windows 10 will also use BitTorrent-style peer-to-peer downloads for updates.

Many of the included applications on Windows 10 the Microsoft Edge browser and all those other universal apps will be automatically updated through the Windows Store, which is separate from Windows Update.


What You Need to Know About Windows Update on Windows 10

This article answers another question a lot of users in this section have: what about forced Windows Updates installed on metered connections? Well, you'll be able to prevent that.

Windows wont download updates on connections you mark as metered. This ensures Windows wont waste valuable tethering data or other mobile data on updates that can wait until it reaches a solid, unrestricted Wi-Fi network. To prevent Windows from downloading updates on a specific connection, first connect to that WI-Fi network.

No problem, you're welcome :) If you ever have issues with anything under Windows 10 when you upgrade, feel free to come seek assistance in this section :)

I'm running the final retail version of Windows 10 right now, and there is one thing that the article didn't mention. I have the Windows 10 Home Edition and you do have a choice when the system restarts after an update that requires a restart. You can choose to be notified before a system restart, which is the option I chose.

Althought it's not specified, this paragraph is also for the users of Windows 10 Professional.

Aura hi.

 

I did reserve for W10 upgrade but I wish to keep it on hold for a while. As the date for the final W10 update/download approach I'm wondering about making some mistake. I'm clumsy at the best when it comes to these matters. 

Is there something I must definitely not click on in order to avoid initiating the upgrade process?

I understand that in that case there will be no return to W7.

 

Hope I'm not off the post topic, kindly redirect me if so.

 

Take care

:)

Once the Windows 10 upgrade will have been downloaded on your system, you'll be notified. From there, you can choose to upgrade right away or delay the operation. Delaying it or just ignoring it's completion are what I would do if you want to wait before upgrading.

Just to repeat, Folks...

IF one has Reserved the Win10 Download all that does is provided you the installer for Windows 10...  it does not self-install automatically.  YOU install it when YOU want to get it done.  IF you delay beyond 28/7/16 it can no longer be done for free.  Windows 10 is not only extremely good, highly capable, full-Featured & very easy to use but, it lasts on into the future while prior OSs do not.
