Here's a review of the old app.

Updating during shutdown and another updating during boot up. Took a lot of time for that for me to start doing something on my machine. Really hate it. Why not perform the update in the background, right?
No thanks! Until I can CHOOSE what to install and not install indefinitely, Spyware 10 is not for me ( not to mention multitude of other things that are absolute step backwards compared to W7).

In a world of insane cyber security attacks having an updated OS is a blessing. Post-poning updates makes sense when you're working on something but like you change your car oil you should be diligent and update once you're done.
The new release will also have a pop-up to post-pone update installation once it's ready to restart.

I don't know why there is anybody gating updates, I love them and see them as a gift (iOS and macOS user)
Isn't it already a feature of the Enterprise/Pro Edition that you can choose when/whether to install updates? If so, I'm not holding my breath for the feature to make its way to the Home edition.
AnonD-404798, 29 Dec 2016how about giving us an option NOT to install any of that useless crap ? Totally agree with you and hope to put this opiton it is taking too much capacity am using ubuntu and loving it
AnonD-404798, 29 Dec 2016how about giving us an option NOT to install any of that useless crap ? Go to Settings > Network & Internet > Wi-Fi > Advanced options and turning Set metered connection on!
A simple restart could take hours, not seconds, because of these stupid forced updates! To stop these just go to Settings > Network & Internet > Wi-Fi > Advanced options and turning Set metered connection on!
MarkusLeto, 29 Dec 2016Yeah right. Microsoft, give us back the old Photos app!! Or at least allow us to install old a... moreIf it is the good old PhotoViewer you miss, then it IS still there!! They just HID it to see how much they can annoy the users...
just bring back the pre-windows 8 update method being able to disable/ignore/hide updates rather than just pause and forced install it.
Their developers properly need this to get some work done....
It is only the billions of user they pester with this automatic booting.... }:-)>
IF they cared about their users, they COULD separate updates in a few groups. e.g.
1) Updates that can be done without boot and within say 15 minutes - these could be installed when the PC is idle.
2) Urgent security patches, These should be possible to postpone, but not too long, say up to a day or two.
3) Heavy updates and updates that require boots, these OUGHT to be easy to postpone, even for something like a month.
how about giving us an option NOT to install any of that useless crap ?
Only 35 days?
Microsoft rushes incomplete OS to market and user has to update it often as consequence?
I dont care about window 10 anymore its still remain as one of bad product. I hope for better than this.window is window, it never be like android or ios.
I can pause for whole life because i dont use windows os after the release of windows 10.
