The Easy Way to Cancel Your Scheduled Windows 10 Update

Ads by Google

Let’s say you decided to lock in an upgrade to Windows 10, but you didn’t actually do the upgrade. Whatever your reason for waiting, it looks like Microsoft is going to push the update out to you whether you’re ready or not!

Thankfully, you can cancel the upgrade relatively easily.

First, go to this Microsoft page and download the troubleshooter linked to on the page. When you run it, you’ll have the option to Continue Upgrade as Scheduled or Upgrade Later. Since you don’t want Windows 10 right now, you’ll need to click the Upgrade Later option.

When you click that option, the troubleshooter will return the message, “Upgrade Later. Your scheduled upgrade time has been canceled.”

The app to upgrade to Windows 10 should remain in your system tray, so when you do decide you want to get your upgrade, you’ll be able to, it just won’t be forced on you.
