If there’s anything more frustrating than your computer spontaneously rebooting because of a fault, it’s when it reboots while you’re working by design. Some system updates require a reboot to take effect. The trouble is, there are times you don’t want to be forced into a reboot – like when you’re working. The Windows 10 Creators Update adds a new feature called Active Hours, which stops Windows 10 from restarting. Here’s how to use it.
- Click or tap the Start button and choose Settings
- Click or tap Update & security and choose Windows Update
- Select Change active hours
- Choose the start time and end time for active hours, and then tap or click Save
I like this feature. While I don’t see as many forced restarts as I used to these days, being able to control what happens with my system like this is a good thing.
