Microsoft does not stop releasing periodic updates for one of its flagship products such as the Windows 10 operating system. Whether of greater or lesser caliber or importance, they help the software continue to grow and improve on teams around the world.

We cannot forget that when we mention Windows 10, we are referring to a system that is the most used, by far, on desktop computers around the globe. In addition, its most immediate persecutor, which is losing more and more strength, in Windows 7.

Well, as we say, the versions of Windows that still receive official support from Microsoft, receive new updates and patches every so often. Whether it's security patches, cumulative or feature updates, the system is on its way to the top.

Windows 10 October 2020 Update is about to arrive

But despite the importance of all of them, there are many users who still doubt their reliability, at least initially. In addition, these doubts are not unfounded, since as we have seen so many times, many of these launches cause unexpected failures in a multitude of equipment.

Then, with the passage of days or weeks, Microsoft manages to solve them, but new ones appear in them, or in other updates. Many of these failures occur in the controversial but important functionality of Windows Update.

Saying that when it comes to feature updates, these are the biggest and most important. In fact, Microsoft usually sends us two a year, approximately every six months, and we are on the verge of one of those moments.

Specifically, we mean that we are a few weeks, or days, away from the arrival of the new Windows 10 update, the 20H2 or 2020 October Update. A smaller feature update than the previous 2004 version, but just as important.

How to delay the arrival of Windows 10 20H2

Now, despite its importance, many users may wonder if they should install it as soon as Microsoft launches it to compatible computers, or wait a bit. As is often the case in these circumstances, everyone at their PC must make their own decisions.

However, given what has been seen in the past, perhaps the best thing at first is not to force their arrival. That is, wait for Windows Update to offer it by itself instead of clicking on the Check for updates button to force its arrival.

In this way we will have less chance of having problems derived from some incompatibility with our configuration on the computer. With everything and with this, it would not be irresponsible to wait a few days after its official launch by Redmond.

This is how we get Microsoft to correct the most serious errors that may arise in the first days, something quite common. This is a possibility that the Windows Update function itself allows us to program.

To do this, we just have to go to Settings/Update and security/Windows Update and click on the Advanced options option. In the new window we will already have the possibility to customize the date on which we want to receive the next update in Pause Until.
