Hi all,

I have 2 questions:

How can I prevent Windows 10 updates during business hours

When update actually install AFTER business hours then I notice that in the morning (again IN business hours) the system gets started or rebooted by a user and Windows goes in to: finishing updates with the known progress indicator (percentages). So it seems to actually finish updates from the night before. This takes up a LOT of time during business hours. How can I make it happen that the whole update sequence happens (from start to finish) during NON business hours.
