There’s nothing more annoying like that Windows 10 restart while we are using the computer. The computer needs an update, and in the middle of our session, it restarts to install it. Also, there are cases where this process takes a long time, making it all the more frustrating at all times. In these situations, we have a solution.

Since we can do that, Windows 10 will restart when we are not using it. The computer allows us to establish active hours, in which it will not be possible to have such updates, preventing this from happening to us again—one way to avoid these annoying interruptions.

How to stop Windows 10 from restarting while using it

For this, we have to first open Windows 10 settings. We use the key combination Win + I, and in a couple of seconds, we already have this configuration on the screen. Of all the sections that we find in it, we must then enter Update and security.

When we enter this section, we look at the options in the center of the screen. You will see that one of the sections that we have in it is that of active hours. This is the section that interests us, so click to enter it.

Here we are going to be allowed to choose a time slot in which Windows 10 is active. That is the hours in which we are going to be using the computer in any case. So between those hours, no updates will be released for the computer, which is what we want to avoid at all costs.

We determine these hours, and then we can leave off this section. In this way, we have established that during those hours, Windows 10 will not be able to update suddenly as it happens in many cases. A simple way to avoid these annoying interruptions that prevent us from working as we want.
