Windows 10 starts forced upgrades
Microsoft will obviously use "machine learning" to automatically upgrade compatible hardware without the user's permission to ensure that everything goes well.
The 1903 version of Windows 10 has already reached the end of support and the 1909 version will stop supporting soon. The version of Windows 10 2004 will also stop being supported later this year. So if you use any of the above versions your device will be automatically updated to the latest version of the operating system, whether you like it or not.
Of course, Microsoft will avoid restarting your device during awkward times, such as when you are in the middle of a task.
If you do not want Microsoft to install updates, make sure you are using Windows 10 in 2004 or 20H2.
Users of the 2004 version will need to upgrade to Windows 10 version 20H2 or a newer version in the second half of 2021.
It is also worth noting that affected users will be notified of the forced upgrade via an alert on the Windows Update page.
