Shut down computer without waiting for updates

Recommended Posts

If you are annoyed with the message that you updates will be installed when after you click "Shutdown", this is for you. The simple way to do it is


1.Press Alt+F4


2. Change the pull-down menu from Install Updates and shutdown to shutdown only


3. Click OK


Now Windows will shutdown without waiting for the updates to install.



things to remember: The steps are not permanent, you need to do it every time updates for Windows are downloaded
