Microsoft plans to release update features Windows 10 May 2020 update (the Windows 10 in the 2004 edition) in the following days. The new update of Windows 10 will be released gradually to all running systems Windows 10.
The way it will be distributed mostly depends on their versions Windows 10 and the devices you use. If you are using a recent version of Windows 10, it will be very easy to skip the upcoming update, but if your device is using an older version, you will need to make some manual settings to block the installation of the new feature update.
The feature update is an important update of a similar scope to the 1903 version of Windows 10. It brings new features and changes, but not as many Windows 10 of the issue 1903, but there are some very useful.
For example, there is a possibility to reinstall Windows using the Cloud, it brings improvements in the search, the replacement of the native Cortana with a Cortana application and the new Windows Subsystem for Linux 2. THE new Edge is also in the new update.
Why block their update Windows 10 currently:
The main reason for blocking Microsoft updates is always the same: problems after installation. Feature updates make many changes to the system and the chance of new errors is very high. In the past, we have seen errors deleting data, interrupting the internet connection, displaying problems with the Windows search or Start menu, or preventing the system from booting.
Blocking updates, however, has been improved in recent versions Windows 10:
The first thing you need to do is check the version of your operating system if you do not know it.
In the search, enter winver and select the application that will appear in the results. To see the version of your operating system from the settings follow the path Start - Settings - System - (scroll down) Information.
If your operating system version is 1903 or 1909, then everything is easy.
Microsoft has added a new functionality for new feature updates to Windows 10 since version 1903. This feature separates feature updates from other updates.
In other words: Feature update is no longer automatically available on systems or when the administrator manually clicks for a new check for updates.
It exists as a link to the page and all you need to do is not click on "download and install".
Things are very different if your system is Windows 10 in version 1803 or 1809. Updates are automatically offered on these systems and will be installed automatically. They will also be installed if you do a manual check for updates.
In systems Pro, administrators should make policies to prevent feature updates from being installed or to follow the Start - Settings - Update & Security - Advanced Options options to postpone feature updates.
For Home versions, there is no such option. Of course it is possible to block all updates using third party tools.
In the past, setting your network connection to metered prevented you from receiving updates, but the method does not always work 100%. The problem disappears when your system is updated to Windows 10 of the 1903 edition or later.
Generally systems with Windows 10 of version 1803 and 1809 will need to be updated to a newer version this year to continue to be supported.
But since we are talking about Microsoft updates, it would be good to wait a few months before the upgrade.
