"When this 10-year period ends, Microsoft will discontinue Windows 7 support so that we can focus our investment on supporting newer technologies and great new experiences".

Talking about Windows Update, Microsoft is planning to give the users some extra control of when an update is downloaded and installed on a computer.

However, local officials want to upgrade to Windows 10 by the January 2020 deadline, and approximately 150 PCs and 100 laptops would be completely replaced because they are already running on old hardware. Microsoft will be hoping to avoid a repeat of the multiple issues that plagued its Windows 10 October 2018 Update. So, we're making it possible for all users to pause both feature and monthly updates for up to 35 days (seven days at a time, up to five times). This update will be released to Windows Insiders first, who will test it for a month before it is made publicly available in May. Windows 10 version 1803 and 1809 will feature that option "by late May" as well according to Microsoft.

Microsoft intends Windows updates to make the operating system more powerful and easier to use.

Users can choose to download and install updates, pause updates which are in progress at inconvenient times, and make use of intelligent active hours for update installation based on their usage patterns. By default, this is set at 8 am to 5 pm.

Microsoft today revealed that Windows Insiders in the Fast ring will soon be testing a new version of Windows 10. That's key in this new era of "Windows as a service" when Microsoft isn't bothering to create new distinct versions of the OS.

"We will begin releasing 19H2 bits to Insiders later this spring and will talk more about what that will look like in the near future", Microsoft says. Below we have outlined some of the more notable features coming out in the update.

Delaying the release for some additional testing is the right decision; most users, admins and companies would not mind, probably, if the testing would even take longer than that provided that the final release version is as stable as it can be. By doing things this way, instead of having two updates per year forced onto your machine, you can install one every year and a half.
