Windows 10 Creators update will allow you to pause updates only for 7 Days and not 35 days as said earlier

Today, while i was searching for the new changes in the final windows 10 creators update preview 

edition, i came to see a sudden change in some options from being appeared and disappeared on this 

build. One of the thing i noticed was, the inclusion of some new settings in the updates page. Since i 

was using enterprise edition, i happened to see some new settings that will allow us to choose when 

to get updates like choosing current branch or stable branch,etc.. After seeing that, i revisited my 

settings page to see whether some settings had been added. There was nothing new expect 1 to 3 

settings, and a couple of changes. 

Since my data balance was low, i went  further to turn off the updates. But to my shock it 

happened. 

The option to pause windows 10 updates got a change. In the previous builds i had worked, there 

was an option to pause the updates for 35 days[Screenshot link]. But this build displays a text saying. that we are 

allowed to pause the updates only for 7 days and after 7 days our update will automatically install the 

latest updates.

It is worth pointing that, even though we had paused the windows update, our PC will still download 

and install the critical updates through windows update.

Temporarily pause updates from being installed on this device for up to 7 days. When updates resume, this device will need to get the latest updates before it can be paused again.

I don't know, why Microsoft changed this option,  but you need to some serious action if you 

depend on the internet for lot of works.

Get ready for the update..!
